  1. This is a relatively absurd post. Dean is no better or worse than any other recent mayor of Nashville in terms of seeking attention. And of course he wants these projects completed ASAP, he cares about the city. You want him to propose projects that will not be completed until 2020?

  6. How? They could be going for a development like this. I'm not sure who the architect is for this project, but I like the use of multiple colors to give it that extra pop. Looks like they were aiming for some kind of LEED certification with the windmill on top of the green house.

  7. The State of TN is basically has got their head in the sand trying hard to ignore mass transit in any Metro area. If you ignore the future trends you will have problems. We have to have Mass Transit, not only in Nashville but probably in Memphis, Chattanooga and Knoxville at some point.

  10. The website that determines this is an absolute joke. Here is a direct quote from the Charlotte page: Bar Charlotte is the universal hang out for the fun loving people in Charlotte, NC. Located in the #FirstWard, it is convenient to everything in and around the center city. You've got to be kidding me. Anyways, here is the rest of this pile of crap. Complete without a transit score because, you know, we haven't had a light rail system operating for the last 6 years. http://www.walkscore.com/NC/Charlotte

  12. Not sure of the second LHR--slot controlled airport, so there'll have to be some juggling with One World partner, BA. As for British Airways' entry inot the CLT market in 2014, rather than this summer, it's all about having an available aircraft to do it. I failed to mention yesterday that US is now considering swapping aircraft on the CLT-MAD and CLT-BCA routes. With One World connections, it makes more sense to fly the larger A-330 to Madrid, which is Iberia's mega hub.

  13. With Orlando's worst kept secret (Go City!) being announced on Nov 19th at Chyenne Saloon - love the location for this, by the way - I do wonder what the "announcement" on the 18th involving Orlando Health will be. I'm assuming it's just a continued sponsership, but rumors of a stadium name/rendering keep popping up...

  14. The number of problems in Shockoe Bottom this project would resolve is staggering and cannot go unnoticed (environmental, economic, social, physical). It really is a comprehensive plan to transform the bottom and addresses so many problems, I'm surprised this is coming out of Richmond. Here's how: 1. Floodplain mitigation. 2. Reduction of Impervious Surface. 3. Increase in pedestrian traffic to the Bottom at night. 4. Multi-purpose market promenade (festivals, park space, al fresco dining) 5. Demolition of obtrusive market structure 6. Grocery / food competition on the east end 7.

  15. Charlotte-area business leaders are optimistic that the AA/US merger will lead to more International flights from CLT: http://www.charlotteobserver.com/2013/11/13/4463653/business-leaders-hope-to-see-more.html#.UoTT7fmsh8E Some scenarios around the loss of Lufthansa (if it were to occur) include the new AA resuming those flights or someone like AirBerlin filling in the gap since it has a OneWorld membership. Given the number of German companies based in the area, you have to believe something be done to address the need for non-stop services to Germany. As was mentioned earlier in this thr

  16. Kevin Siers of The Observer does a nice job as always. Did the Attorney General really accomplish much (or much more) than what would have happened with the FAA following the merger and gate assignments/distribution? I'm curious from the airline/airport geeks.

  18. RVA, I have always favored a ballpark on the old Reynolds site in Manchester. The national Slavery Museum should be in Richmond at the Lumpkins site. And Shockoe Bottom should build apartments and condos above shops constructed in Colonial, Italianate, and Federal styles. The Kroger and Hyatt can still be built across Broad. The Boulevard site, under the last plan was good... so I kinda agree...

  20. Just spoke with a friend at US corporate in PHX. The only big imminent changes at CLT will be reduced frequencies (but on larger aircraft) between CLT-DFW and CLT-ORD. CLT-LAX will get an increase in daily service as well as one widebody departure daily (prob a 767--AA has over 100 of them). There will also be a realignment of one European departure (CLT-LHR goes to 2X daily (both flown by US Airways crews, not BA--that will come in 2015), CLT-FRA goes to one a day). Everything else will be biz as usual until late summer at operational merger time. As it was told to me, Doug Parker has be

  21. I get the impression that they'll move fully to the AAdvantage program. I firmly believe Parker has realized that they need to stick with the higher-end product that American was starting to move back to, though I hope that they'll do it in smart ways. What frustrates me most about many of the conversations that take place on A.net is the assumption that it only matters for F (First-Class) or J (Business) - that everyone is an Elite of some sort. I don't get to fly that often and only do so in Y (coach). I've had good experiences and bad experiences on most airlines - it's usually jus

  22. Really glad that he calls out Jim Cooper for being completely useless in this situation. I'm all for fiscal responsibility, but this is hardly irresponsible. His intrangisence on the matter is unexplainable.

  23. I've changed my view now and am quietly pushing for a neat ballpark overlooking the James and the skyline in Manchester, a national slavery museum in the Bottom, and a huge high-density mixed-use development on the Boulevard. I'm a minority on that, though, even though it seems to be the plan that would (to me) keep everyone happy.

  24. I'm with ya, Miesian Corners. I am US Platinum and I always get good service from them, and get first-class upgrades for free nearly every time I fly without having to trade in 500-mile upgrade vouchers. I have been in first class on AA and UA also, and didn't really notice a difference except for the one thing that you mentioned - AA serves meals in first class even on shorter flights, where US only serves them on flights 3+ hours (I think that's right).

  27. The only thing I really miss about the old Noodles was the lower prices. Same with Napoli's in Rogers. There are some other sites that have never done well that I know of in Rogers besides where Coltons is now. Where Chutney's is now has been thru a lot of businesses. The old Pizza Hut on 8th by the high school. Where Number 1 Buffett used to be. Personally I don't think location can be held as blame, but those sites compete with my opinion.

  28. Right? Honestly, it makes you wonder if the people that design stuff like that have any passion for their job at all, or even an ounce of creativity in their bodies. Who COULDN'T design a structure that looks like that?

  29. I think USC would prefer to demo the building, but I believe regulations issued by the state force them into re-using it. Considering the expansion across Assembly Street, this is probably a great opportunity to build a secondary hub of campus. Funding that was destined for Russell House expansion, additional classroom space, and basketball practice courts would be redirected here and the big benefit would be freeing up space around the Horseshoe (Hamilton College, the Admissions office, and the Study Abroad office all come to mind). It is a big concerning that this would all be delayed un
