  1. A selection, of sorts, from my helicopter flight around town yesterday. There's PLENTY more, but this gives one a good perspective of where we stand so far.

  2. One that I think bears mentioning is this perspective...

  3. Thank you! If I may, I'd like to submit this view as well. The density within West End and Midtown is really starting to go up along the major roads.

  5. One of the contributing factors is Nashville's relatively shallow soil depth and overabundance of near-surface bedrock. Memphis distinctly benefits from an unusually deep layer of rich soil which promotes the deep rooting of their massive trees. (As you may know, healthy trees typically have a root system that nearly mirrors the canopy in size and depth. They both grow in tandem.) P.S. Since this is a picture thread, a few more shots from the post-storm sunset last Friday. I was trying to find a spot on the window without any water droplets, but then I realized they looked kin

  6. Getting there faster than I thought...I think someone referenced with those plants it would take something like 2 years to really fill in.

  7. The problem with the CMHoF is that while never forgetting the past, it tends to live more in the present with artist. The folks that patronize these "individual" museums are purist at heart and fans of these specific artist. The owner is GOOD friends with these families and is able to gather items you'd likely never see in the "big" museum.

  9. That goes along with what I have heard and it has been confirmed now, several times. A facility like that is a waste of real estate in the core. I am with I think everyone on the board that the older building needs to stay. That would be absolutely criminal to bring it down and if sold, that could be part of the sales agreement, to keep the building.

  10. What would be cool is if they had a museum that wrapped up all of these people we're talking about into one big museum. That would REALLY be awesome! Oh...wait...

  13. They picked the right tree because Drake Elms max out about 70-80ft and a relatively equal canopy spread and they have very little to no root puncture habits, the tendency for roots to uplift and crack asphalt or concrete. I'm not kidding when I tell you these are one of the top performing urban landscape trees, and they're readily available and affordable.

  14. It either happens now, or we stop the growth and it never gets done because of one reason or another. Bottomline is it has to be done and now is as good a time as any. When it's too late, it will be impossible to implement and the growth numbers will not justify it.

  15. September numbers: 1.146 million, a 1.5% increase from the previous September. I’m sure the hurricanes had an effect on numbers, since Florida and parts of Texas were basically off limits for a week. This fiscal year is 7.2 percent up over last year at the same time.

  16. If they do the exterior of those buildings right they could be a beautiful addition to Sobro. I love the large arched windows on the ground floor. It reminds me of this hotel I stayed at in San Antonio a few months ago, which was a converted office building from the 1910s:

Hissho Sushi. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/29/us/burmese-refugees-sushi.html?smid=tw-share Love this story! When you see America as full of promise this is what can happen.

  19. This is all marketing on their part. They will probably have a special like buy admission to two and get the third free, to drive even more traffic to them. Each one of the people have a strong following. I am surprised they didn't do a Hank Williams Museum. Who knows that may be in the works at some point. Nashville is probably the only city that multiple museums of this type would work. Las Vegas could probably do something like that, but not too many other cities. Nashville has a unique branding when it comes to projects like this.

  21. Quite a few more trains are on the way (two in less than a year and two more the year after and possibly 10 or more beyond that if SEHSR ever gets traction). One of the many things delaying the arrival of additional intercity trains is the current Charlotte station. Its also a near certainty that at some point in the future we will have commuter rail. Trains from Rock Hill, Gastonia, Mooresville (maybe), Salisbury and (possibly) Monroe would all need Gateway Station. I honestly think what is being proposed is going to be insufficient for our future intercity and commuter service. An

  22. ^ ^ ^ Agreed. I would think Hank Williams, Willie Nelson, and Dolly Parton could all have small museums like these. I also have dreams for a Gospel Music Museum, and Drummers Hall of Fame. Any additions like these only add to the flavor and power of the Music City USA moniker.

  29. Cost on the debt seems manageable to me, especially as Nashville continues to grow and the next million people move here (which will come to a halt if we do nothing. We've done nothing for too long out of fear. Time seems right now. Just IMO)

  33. IMO...the entire I-40 area from the 24 split going to Atlanta all the way around the downtown loop could really use some interchange updates. It's basically the same as it was 30 years ago. We could use some stacks similar to the White Bridge Road area to help with some of the congestion.

  36. Snapped hastily going south on 8th earlier. I drove past this a couple of hours ago and it’s absolutely looms over you when you’re going into south loop on 65 North, especially at night. It’s imposing for only being like 14 stories.

  38. I absolutely think that there's a market for a Merle Haggard museum, especially since it'll also have a restaurant run by Swett's (yes!). I know when I have out-of-town guests visit, they want to experience these kinds of things. The restaurant alone could probably make enough money to pay the mortgage.

  39. I went to the Johnny Cash museum last year and it was PACKED. I guess with a small floor space, good revenue from the door and good advertising they’d make some dough. Being in the middle of a heavily tourist pedestrian district full of country music fans doesn’t hurt either . The museum was really cool, I recommend it if you’re a Cash fan.

  41. The owner of Two Ten Jack in East Nashville will open a restaurant spanning about 5,000 sq. ft. in mid-2018 in the recently completed 222 tower in SoBro. No name or concept has been announced yet. It will be located at the NW corner of the intersection of Demonbreun and Molloy St. Non-office space remaining available at 222 include a 14,000-square-foot three-story restaurant space at the southeast corner of the T-intersection of First and Demonbreun Street, as well as a 1,650-square-foot café space fronting Second Avenue South and adjacent to the building’s lobby. https://www.bizjourna
