  1. About time this has been announced. I'm really excited about this one. Not a disappointment like the Rolling Mill Hill site.

  2. I love this! As a frequent flyer, I'm more excited about this than an 800' tower...and that's saying something.

  3. From the Tennessean; I got this off my subscription site and didn't see it posted on the public web site, so I don't have a link... Quotes: Nashville International Airport is embarking on an ambitious $1.2 billion renovation that will touch virtually every corner of the airport and change every aspect of the traveler’s experience. New parking, more security lines, larger baggage claim and ticketing areas, expanded concourse space and a first-of-its-kind hotel are among the projects planned over the next five to seven years. The renovation and expansion, dubbed by the M

  4. New fifteen story Hilton Garden Inn being built in the white-hot, world famous, infinitely trendy (all sarcasm) market of....Tulsa, OK....compare to what we got below that. I don't mean to beat a dead horse here, but when people complain about Nashville getting shafted on the design front most of the time, I don't think they're off base. Sorry, just letting off some steam, probably resulting from the MDHA Trolley Barn debacle.

  7. Thanks for posting PHofKS! Here's the link to the digital page, which includes a 4 1/2 minute video. I've included some screen grabs from that vid further below on this post: http://www.tennessean.com/story/news/local/davidson /2016/07/31/nashville-airport-plans-12b-overhaul-including-new-hotel/87478166/ Here's the link to the print page: http://nashvilletennessean.tn.newsmemory.com/?token=ffc9a0dcf6e6b282e954db6388799c9e&cnum=4652712&fod=1111111STD&selDate=20160731&licenseType=none& BNA Vision is an acceleration and expansion of the MNAA Master Plan, a comp

  8. The NBJ article appears to be a subtle slam against the projects and comparisons of the office building made to Cool Springs buildings. Adam has to be careful as all media folks, but I hope there is an uproar of public opposition to the project. As far as MDHA goes, the D needs to be removed and their power taken away as far as development goes. The Metro Planning department needs to be put in charge of development issues. This is a left over from last century and needs to change very soon.

  12. Cummins Station is one of my favorite repurposing projects in Nashville over the past 25 years or so. Built in 1907, this 109-year-old structure remains one of the largest buildings in Nashville as far as actual square footage (480,000). It has had a major renaissance from primarily warehousing space for products to be shipped for the bordering Gulch railroad yards, into a multi-faceted mixed-use hub, featuring 5 eateries, 2 clubs, and dozens of other businesses. It's rebirth helped spark all of the development of the Gulch over the past 15 years. The current ownership has discussed plans o

  17. Nicholson Drive projects to get first shot at $71.5 million in road credits There are eight local projects, and the top four are all located on the Nicholson Drive corridor. The top priority is repairing the roads around the future Water Campus (35-acre research facility is under construction) — Terrace, Oklahoma, Gila, Aztec and Emma streets. The second objective is to widen Nicholson itself between Interstate 10 and the north gate of LSU. After that, money will go toward providing matching funds for grants to build the proposed downtown-LSU tram, which is planned to run along Nichol

  18. Update on the National Mustang Museum in Concord broke ground and should be open in summer of 2017. http://www.independenttribune.com/townnews/commerce/more-than-ford-mustangs-show-up-for-mustang-owner-s/article_5e49ea34-569b-11e6-994a-f7a18250fbb7.html?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter This is great addition to the racing attractions in Cabarrus county and will bring in tourists from the around the country.

  19. Some companies don't want to take incentives such as Synchrony Financial which expanded in Ballantyne or Alevo in Concord or Walmart Support Services in the airport area. Walmart alone added 1000 jobs and was the biggest new to market lease in 2015. Never a public announcement at all. All of these companies made their decisions before HB2 including Amazon Concord. Amazon did not take any incentives for their warehouse or even publicly announce their 220,000 sq warehouse lease in Concord. I doubt they will do any different for their new 397,000 sq ft warehouse on Old Dowd road they are work

  20. ^ ^ ^ Yeah, I took a photo of it last week, but hadn't gotten around to posting it yet. I have heard that it is going to be a restaurant, but have no idea as to the scope (multiple stories?) nor the design. Looking south from Glen Echo Drive, with Hillsboro Pike running along fencing to the right and Green Hills Mall in the background, and Hillsboro High School on the left with the Southern Land mixed-use project cranes in distance beyond:

  22. This is just the preliminary concept drawings, not up for ARB yet. I will personally hold off on judging it until I see a more advanced color rendering. I think it could look really cool depending on the glazing treatments and how it matches the feel of adjacent DPAC. I like a little more flow in buildings personally, but as Prahaboheme has said, some stark modernism could look good juxtaposed against the DPAC if it is done right.

  23. It does appear to have some 60s modernism elements in the design - a great look in Florida when properly executed.

  26. On a positive note, the C/D Admirals Club has gotten some new chairs. CLT is the red-headed stepchild when it comes to Admirals Club refurbishments (even AA employees at other hubs have commented on how CLT has been left out), but the new, more modern chairs (grey with white piping) at least make the space feel less run down. However, after enjoying the oneworld lounges (and service from Cathay and JAL) in Asia a few times in the last couple weeks, the Admirals Clubs (and really everything AA does) seem like a Super 8 compared to a Ritz-Carlton.

  27. Speaking of MEM, has there been any talk of a modernization-type project for BNA? I was at the airport last week for the first time and was a bit surprised at how dated the overall facility looked. MEM should be quite nice when all is said and done: http://www.uarch.com/memphis-international-airport-improvements/ I would think that with the BNA's growing traffic, a similar project may be in the works.

  32. /rant/ So an increasing amount of ink is being spilled on the possibility of long-term economic stagnation (think eroding middle class, Japan, etc.) http://blogs.wsj.com/economics/2016/07/15/needed-a-contingency-plan-for-secular-stagnation/ . It also seems likely that the approaching election may change the GOP's obstructionist attitudes. Given all this a very large federal stimulus (disguised as an infrastructure program) is possible in the next two years. If this happens the feds will want to put the money into 'shovel ready' programs and a large portion of the money will likely go to t
