  1. New crane segments are being delivered to the site. I expect the main 505 crane will be a good bit taller by Monday.

This area across the river could be like a sports district. They should make the (if we get one) MLS stadium south of the Nissan. So you'd have Topgolf, NFL, MLS, and whatever else gets utilized in the area

  10. From today's Nashville Post: The developer of Stocking 51 — the retail project slated for The Nations — has landed a major permit. Vintage South Development is undertaking the adaptive reuse of what was long called the Belle Meade Hosiery Mill building, located at 5016 Centennial Blvd. City Construction is the general contractor, with the permit valued at about $2.35 million.

  11. So, I'm trying to read between the lines here so please forgive and correct me if I am getting this wrong, but based upon your somewhat cryptic response it sounds as if you're upset that homeless people are camping out on "your lawn" (i.e. the nearest public park,) which is totally understandable, but also simultaneously upset that I am suggesting something be done so those homeless people don't have to camp out on your lawn. I must say, if I am in fact reading that accurately, then I'm not quite sure how to respond to that. Maybe my suggestion is terrible. That's fair. But surely you'd wa

  16. I'm forgetting if that was a power plant or manufacturing plant. You can tell it was taken at a cold time of the year because of the coal exhaust coming out of the old Strickland Courthouse chimney. It'd be nice to take a stroll around that Nashville, but you'd need a facemask to walk around the old square (between the coal-burning fumes and the horse manure). Urban renewal, as said, but especially wanting the demolition of the awful slums along the north slope of the capitol called "Hell's Half Acre."

  20. ^Ohh I remember my parents taking me downtown to have dinner at the Spaghetti Factory on occasion, and I have fleeting memories of feeling like I was in an incredibly special place that felt like another world. All of the lights...the smells...the sounds...you might say my occasional trips to The Spaghetti Factory helped to create my interest in urban spaces and urban development.

  21. I was already going to school downtown by 1984 (Johnson Middle), or at least "near" downtown. But in those days, it was strictly a 9-5 Monday-Friday affair. Come in after that and it was a dead zone, even the weekends. What little action was down on 2nd Avenue (not counting the nearby XXX shops by Lower Broad) and the Old Spaghetti Factory was almost the sole restaurant open past 5pm. Go downtown on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon (my parents and I would go to TPAC for a matinee of travel shows around the world, little more than a glorified showing of someone's slides and home movies narrated b

  25. ^ yes, this is true. I think Mecklenburg may be 1/4 cent above the state maximum but we were grandfathered since our transit tax existed before the NCGA decided to micromanage municipalities. Our current legislature certainly isn't going to decide to help us out with anything.

  27. The Cumberland looks like it's at a flood stage level there. So what were those smokestacks. The're very substantial for early 1900s. Factory or municipal power/heat generator? And just have to say those facades along the square were stunningly beautiful. Such a shame that they were destroyed in the 1960s/70s. And that railroad bridge is swiveled "open" in the photo.

  28. For Members (Members being the group where you have between 10 and 100 posts) the limitation was 50 MB. I just changed that to 250 MB after seeing this post. We have better cameras with higher resolutions now so it should be changed to keep up with technology. I'll adjust the back-end to handle the larger space requirements. Note that Members+ (users with 100+ posts) and Supporting Members (those who contribute a small monetary thumbs up to help keep the site running regardless of post count) have unlimited space. Having said that, you should be able to upload photos again since you no

  32. I disagree with arcturus. Your email should go to the Planning Commission. They're the ones appointed to make decisions on stuff like this. A personal email to a business owner could erupt into something nasty. Imagine you owned a lawncare company and someone was "offended" by your new logo, and sent you an email. Would you change your logo? Get all of your trucks repainted? Doubtful. Just be prepared that they may read your email at the PC meeting. I've had my emails read many times at commission meetings and hearings, it's pretty exciting.

  36. Prospective new owners of the old Gaia space are going before the city HPC to see if they can get telescoping windows on the front to create an open air concept. The applicant is Tony Craig who owns two "Georgina's Fusion Cafes" (Asian and Latin Tacquerias) in Traverse City and Harbor Springs. No mention of what they plan to open here. Here's an article from February of this year about his up north expansions: http://harborlightnews.com/main.asp?SectionID=3&SubSectionID=28&ArticleID=18746 If someone wants to call the architect's number on the drawing, UP could get

  42. Nashville Public Radio looked into this as part of their Curious Nashville series. Sounds like the carousel might be part of the new museum if they can find the money for it. Also mentioned: They pointed out that it's a good thing the carousel was taken down years ago, because had it stayed it would've been destroyed by the flood of 2010. http://nashvillepublicradio.org/post/curious-nashville-what-happened-whimsical-red-grooms-carousel-and-why-it-could-spin-again#stream/0

  44. If anyone enjoys live music, they should absolutely watch an incredible show called "Later, With Jools Holland," which is a BBC show that is essentially a talk show, if the talking portion and the music portion were flipped in terms of importance. It airs tonight on MTV Live (formerly Palladia) at 9PM Central, and the reason I bring it up is because, although 'Nashville' is not an official theme, three of the six live acts are from Nashville. You have the extremely famous Jack White and Kings of Leon, but then you also have an amazing up and coming talent named Kandace Springs, again, also f
