  1. Printer & Bank will be a 15 and 6 story residential/retail structure planned for 215-217 Third Ave. North. 215 is currently a surface lot and 217 is a 3 level parking garage of non-historic relevance built in the 1950s. Gabe Coltea of Rubicon Equities is the developer. No word on how many residential units, how much square footage of retail, or the capacity of the garage (which will have 4 internal levels above grade, and 2 underground). STG is handling the architecture. One of the coolest elements of the concept is the archway over Bankers Alley along 3rd Ave. North leading back to

  3. Hey everyone, I guess I'll just introduce myself here. I'm a freshman at vanderbilt who just moved in a couple of weeks ago, but I've following this forum and the city for a few years now. Now that I actually live in Nashville I figured it was time to officially join the board. Here are a few pictures I took on my run yesterday: Also I'd love to know wth this is:

  5. I haven't posted here in 5+ years. It's been so long I had to sign up again. I did that just to congratulate you on the single stupidest comment I have seen since Caterpillar was a regular poster. Way to go!

  6. For all the complaints we may have about MarketStreet (no names will be mentioned here, you know who you are), their creation of The Gulch as a neighborhood deserves all the credit and profit that they earn. Before anyone saw the potential of downtown Nashville (and could do something about it), they did.

  7. RealClayton is spot on. The impact on the City, of Atrium/Wake's School of Medicine, is hard to over exaggerate. Several months ago, on page 2 of the Atrium/Wake thread, I talked about what this investment means for Charlotte. It truly is a "game changer of historic proportions", on par with the Airport and the Blue Line. Morehead, Dilworth/East Blvd, and Brooklyn Village are ground zero of what will be an extreme makeover in the decades to come. For all practical purposes this investment serves as the anchor Brooklyn Village needed to validate its purpose, and would officially be so,

  9. You know, we have all gotten used to seeing the typical riverfront photos with the terraces of Riverfront Park, but I remember when it was very much undeveloped except for Fort Nashborough and the concrete warehouse which was by then owned and operated by Osborne -Hessey. When the river flooded, they just moved the goods to a higher level. Y'all have seen photos of this before as it was back in the 50s to the 70s. I was very pleased to find a photo of it under construction around the end of the 19th century and also it in 1927 along with a good photo of 1st Avenue North from the river.

  12. Agree with @KJHBurgh, Legacy is very much in its infancy. Would it not be way too soon to judge what it will ultimately be, much like the city of Charlotte as a whole. A few things if I may: 1. We continue to be in the midst of a pandemic that thus far doesn’t seem to have an end. A pandemic that for all intents and purposes has fundamentally changed the business districts of every major city in the country. 2. Unless you are Whole Foods, Harris Teeter or Publix, (small) retail establishments are great for the neighborhood, and street level activity, but they don’t pay the real

  19. Just wait for the Atrium innovation district, I truly believe Wake Baptist's campus is going to influence more than any project other than the Blue Line and the Airport. Brooklyn Village even quietly has momentum now.

  20. The 5 story, 19,000 sq. ft. circa-1900 brick structure at 200 Broadway is being designed for whiskey bar, artist's den, and rooftop bar. The Ardent Company (TAC), which bought the property over 2 years ago, may be the developer, or perhaps have someone else involved. STG Design is overseeing architecture updates, which will include closing the corner entrance, reactivating the long-closed Broadway entrance, and opening man windows along Broadway that have been bricked-over for decades. A Sept 15th meeting with Metro Historic Zoning Commission is planned. More behind the Nashville Post pa

  23. Ladies and Gentlemen...the Fisher Center for the Performing Arts at Belmont University. I attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony this morning when it was unveiled that its moniker would be after University President Bob Fisher and his wife, Judy. The 1,700 seat, $141 million edifice is stunning in every respect.

Union Station Hotel, which--as you may remember--is now part of theNashville Yards development due to its purchase last year by Southwest Value Partners, will be undergoing some additional renovations/additions to the lower portions of the east and west sides. These are renderings and diagrams for their request to zoning for the changes.

  29. Hines is too well funded and ambitious to let this site be as underutilized in the way the initial proposal by the mystery developer across the street at the Beamon lot is doing. If anything, Hines is licking their chops when they see that kind of Mickey Mouse stuff as their "competition."

Church St. Potentially: -814,500 sqft. office 29 stories -400 multifamily units -400-room hotel and 15,000 square feet of street-level retail -3.68 acres, it is the larger of the two sites. 401 S.

  33. Here is Nashville's very first high rise tower, the 30 story Life and Casualty Building at 4th and Church. Now over 60 years old I remember seeing the weather forecast on it's crown for many years, which sadly they no longer do. The card of the first photo explains the beacon operation. The second is the steel framing going up in 1956. The building was designed by a local architect Edwin Keeble, who also was known for several tall churches in Nashville. The crown is very unique and housed an observation deck that had outstanding views of Nashville until it was closed due to a suicide ju

  35. Talks have been going on behind the scenes for an expansion WNBA franchise for Nashville. This would most likely be an expansion team, as the league is pondering growing from 12 to either 14 or 16 teams. One of the names being considered by the league is Nashville Notes (see some proposed logos below). The league normally has a 34 game regular season, meaning 17 home contests, and runs from mid-May to mid-Sept. Most recently, the playoffs have been single elimination games in 1st and 2nd rounds, then best-of five in Semi-Finals and Finals. This means if a team goes all the way to the f
