  1. Just noticed today that the temporary paid parking that was on the Endeavor site has been removed. The signs and pay machine are gone.

  4. The John Seigenthaler Pedestrian Bridge was built in 1909, and was originally known as the Sparkman Street Bridge and then later as the Shelby Street Bridge. It was built one block south of Broadway, connecting Sparkman Street and Shelby Avenue. The bridge was constructed at a cost of about $475,000 and has a 3,150 foot span. Another bridge called the Jefferson Street Bridge which was virtually identical to it was built at the same time. The Jefferson Street Bridge was opened a year after the Sparkman Street Bridge, and was torn down in 1990. The substructures of the bridges were light grey co

  10. I gave that info to WW last week and he contacted Endeavor. They said they were unaware of why that equipment was removed, but I suspect that one of the sub contractors had it removed. My conversation with workers on the site last month indicated that preliminary utility work would start the middle of this month. The 15th is when the parking kiosk was removed and that is about as close to the middle you can get. Look for more work to occur in the next 30 to 60 days.

  11. Might Pinnacle need a new tower in the next few years? Pinnacle bank has just acquired another bank (BNC) out of NC. While their assets are a modest $20 billion, the company's growth trajectory has been remarkable. The acquisition puts the bank in the top 50 in the country, well on the way to its founders' stated goal of becoming “the dominant bank in southeastern commercial banking." Started in 2000, it had less than $5 billion, just five years ago when their downtown HQ tower was built.

  12. My thought is that we shouldn't be worrying about a new NFL stadium until we are closer to the point when the lease expires. As awesome as it would be to host a Super Bowl, if it comes at the cost of building a brand new stadium 10 years too early (and still paying off a stadium that will be demolished...), then it is absolutely not worth it. That said, we should definitely have this on our minds. With a potential massive project on the distant horizon, we need to think hard about where we are spending our money today. It's one thing to seize opportunities; it's another to squander the fu

  13. Vrtigo...I'm jealous! You get a front row seat for the Westin, JWM and the coming Embassy Suites...as well as the top out of Bridgestone. Btw...even though very crude on my part, this should be close to the finished height on Bridgestone from your view:

  14. the road going north & south is College. The large building in bottom left is the "new" Trade Mart which was demolished for the new convention center. The overpass in the upper left was the former Independence Blvd and the infamous Deadman's curve. South Blvd. starts just above it.. The Query-Spivey-McGee feed store is at three o'clock on the corner of College & Stonewall .

  22. "20 townhomes, retail space planned near historic McGavock House" The project, to be located on the McGavock House portion of the former Ray of Hope Community Church property, will consist of 20 townhomes and retail space. Construction could begin within 30 days and is slated to finish this fall.

  23. I don't live in Grand Rapids, but visit about 4 times a year. I don't get that feeling when I'm there, now it's not like Chicago, but you make it sound like Toledo, Flint or Chernobyl. downtown Grand Rapids has improved 1000% percent since I lived there 17 years ago. I actually get excited when I visit, (shop, eat, and drink) in downtown GR, strange as it may sound to you.

  31. The short answer is no in my opinion for now. When they do need to grow I think they will grab more room in their current building as some space will be open soon to lease in the building per some of my friends who work there. But it certainly is an exciting time for Pinnacle. Banks historically require a huge amount of space and as someone who grew up in a city dominated by it (Charlotte NC) it would be nice to see Nashville become more of a regional player, just not crush a lot...

  34. Went to the Knickerbocker with friends last night. Hour and a half wait there, at Black Heron and Sovengard. Good times for the West Side. The streets were teaming (teeming?) with people. The parking lot under 131 (Scribner) was completely free and had a sign saying so (not sure what time that starts), parking lot wasn't even half full, and the walk under the highway with the wider sidewalks and the LED was pretty cool. I know I can be a curmudgeon at times but overall, go West Side! I can't even imagine what it will be like when the Meijer project goes in.

  35. Notice the long, curved white line with dark red beneath it? Pretty sure that's the Division connector, right? First time I've really noticed it when looking at the ASC camera view. Also...cool shot from Batman of a crane (assuming it's the 505 crane?).

  38. Amazing (yet strangely psychologically-fitting in our culture) that there was no coverage of the Womens' March in Charlotte today, save for one Observer writer, and one online Charlotte blog (Charlotte Stores of all things). This had far more people than the height of the demonstrations over Keith Scott. I hope aerial or someone's condo tower patio photos come from this. The crowd was so big it took ages for the group to move as one.
