  5. It was Moch. Project was proposed for 248 Williams St, and I seem to recall it had a big green roof on it. So awful. No images in the thread: http://www.urbanplanet.org/forums/index.php/topic/19027-248-williams-st-sw-development/ This is a fun walk down memory lane: http://www.urbanplanet.org/forums/index.php/topic/38174-founders-brewery-relocation/?hl=+moch HO.LY..COW.

  9. They're ugly, but this view is at least as marred by the total lack of trees and landscaping, except for a couple of shrubs the developer probably tucked in because they were the cheapest thing on the market. And it looks like every other house has a sidewalk? A wide, shady,continuous sidewalk and some decent foundation planting would work wonders for this scene.

  10. The Capitol Motel now looks like a parking garage with windows. Not sure it's much of an improvement.

  11. Yep, it's looking N-NW (wide-angle view) from the (chopped-to-a-dead-end) sidewalk located on the west side of 5th with the Central Church of Christ beyond camera view (to the immediate left), with McKendree UMC in the upper left third of the photo Notice the Hermitage Hotel at the dead center at the top of the view, an unusual vantage point from mid-block on 5th, south of Church St. The center of the photo is a straight-line, shotgun view diagonally across Church, through the south entrance of the St. Cloud alley. and toward 6th Ave. "way over" almost to Union St. (the view of the northe

  13. Haha...my thoughts exactly! They can keep the fabric they're using on the couches a secret. I just want to know what the damn building is going to look like! Surely we'll get some indication!

  15. I dont have the best memory in the world, and I am only 30....so Ill need some help here, but.... I do believe one of the buildings was a Sears, one was an auto parts business (Western Auto....maybe) Like I said, I could be totally off here... Just remember going from where I grew up in East Nashville/Inglewood past there, down Ewing Ln to my grandparents house in Whites Creek

  16. Having trouble attaching image, but color rendering now available on approved plans on the Land Use Accela site. It is definitely unique for Charlotte. Very "Seattle" looking. I like it a lot! It will be 17 stories, and 179' in heigt. (the existing garage is 145') It looks like there could be a small retail space right at the corner, with an entrance off the rail trail.

  17. I am happy with the announcement. Just not the article. When I see a title that reads "BIG TOWER" I am expecting something bigger than 13-20 stories. I was sooo excited then read the article.

  18. I have ridden with you on small european roads, and I think it is you that needs the racing suit : _____________ Yeah, it is the new Charlotte-area Amazon sorting facility, although I didn't realize they had opened already. Amazon is spending mountains of money to build distribution facilities in every major city so they can drop packages off to the local USPS (keeping them in business) for next day delivery for cheap and cut Fedex/UPS out of as many deliveries as possible. I said for better or worse because I have mixed feelings about not supporting brick and m

  20. BTW, Kirby also stated that (intercontinental) international service at CLT would stay status quo (no changes: London, Frankfurt, Madrid, Paris, Rome, Barcelona, and Dublin), but that we could see some additional service to the Caribbean/Central America (Curacao, Guatemala, Panama).

  21. I was wondering what they would do with the Moe Levy's half of the block. Ben Arnold is developing lofts connect to the Palms (The Lofts at the Palms) and trying to draw interest for a rooftop restaurant from restaurateurs in Charleston and Asheville, as well as national chains. This is really prime space and as the article outlines, is a great way to connect Main Street to the Vista. Moe Levy's was a local institution, but new retailers can only help increase foot traffic in the area. http://www.thestate.com/2015/01/16/3931301/new-apartments-retail-planned.html?sp=/99/101/

  22. I agree that the produce and flowers should be local, but I disagree with kicking Flea Market vendors out. Growing up in the area - before it was hip and cool - the flea market has always been a part of the Nashville Farmers Market, even when it was on the other end of Bicentennial in open air tents. If the vendors pay their rent and don't sell knock off items, why should they have to move. I love going to the Asian couple tha has the $1 bins of little household items and wudknots. Many of these people make their livelihood at the Flea Market and displacing them because of a "few" that do not

  23. PM & NODA for that matter need to keep their weirdness (for lack of a better term). Especially with South End's transformation to a urbanized upper middle income neighborhood .

  24. I mean, there has to be SOME part of the city where "grungy" people hang out. They've been in PMidwood for a while now, long before it was "cool". It's not that difficult to just walk by them and buy your beer or novelty bumper sticker. It's literally one patio in our entire squeaky clean city. Leave it how it is.

  27. This might be new info: It seems Mark Zeff is handling design of the Virgin Hotel. "Most recently, the firm has been asked by Virgin Hotel Group to develop its new hotel in Nashville as well, as in other locations to be announced." http://www.markzeff.com/

  28. I would think they would be welcome in that area; as long as they improve the area as a whole. Lots of people who live in the neighborhoods ear there work for companies that locate in those buildings. That area certainly is becoming an economic powerhouse. Now they just need to build condos on top of the mall!
