    Taylor had alerted me to this and we have tried to reach out to Buckingham but they have not responded. The massing looks to be the same as the old one, but they will have to go in front of Planning to get the height variance to build the height they need. We at least have the number of units now and we did not have that until now. This is actually one of the mystery towers I have been referring to for a while now and it may be back on track and I have heard a little taller, maybe 500'. Dont know anything concrete yet. I hope the architect is still SOM.

    It looks like this one is still alive. Buckingham recently applied for Water/Sewer capacity studies. Here’s the PDF: https://epermits.nashville.gov/download.aspx?id=292640 Total of 231 One bedroom units, 114 Two bedroom units, and a 4,900 square foot restaurant. There was a drawing of the ground floor and massing diagram included: Of note, it looks as though they are planning to split the building between apartments and condos.

    Serious question about crown, are the vertical bars behind the screening structural support for screening, or is that part of lighting scheme? This whole time I thought they were putting up strips of screening. I didn’t realize there are bars behind the screening, so now I am confused what the bars are for.

    Why rapid transit to BNA? Because you have a plane to catch!! If you are downtown (local or tourist), would you want to chance your luck on downtown traffic and I-40? I have nearly missed 2 flights from Nashville; both due to a wreck on the road When I visit other cities, I always take the train/etc. I'm pretty sure most people will do the same here. Reliable rapid transit would be less than $5 vs Uber/taxi $15 minimum. Do you enjoy getting into cars with strangers? Also, imagine how nice it would be driving on I-40 without taxis backing up traffic by driving 52 mph - in the left lane!

    I refuse to call this Ally top a crown there is but one crown in this town and it resides at 100 N Tryon. Call it a topper, a wind screen, a top hat, a sweat band but please don't call it a crown.

    http://landmarkscommission.org/2016/12/12/latta-arcade/ Cotton graders used natural light on second floor to determine quality of product. Product samples were brought from what is now the 3d street light rail station which was a dock for cotton in the harvest season, and other products year long. Cotton factors and brokers worked in the building at that station location and graders in Latta Arcade. The remnant rails of multiple lines are still in the parking area east of the station. A pair can be seen in the asphalt on weekends whenever the daily parkers are elsewhere. Recall that 4th street crossed the rail line on grade and was lowered in the 20th century to accommodate motor traffic.

    Sorry, but that is not true. The Mayor had authorization from the City Council to move forward with the demolition and construction of the new building as well as incentive financing. The historic board lost the ability to provide input on the existing building due to it being deemed unsafe by city engineers- which is exactly what the city code calls for. Because the property is in the historic district the historic board had purview over the design of the new building, which they provided. The democracy worked exactly how it is supposed to. Our elected officials took the input of their constituents and then voted in the way they saw fit. It turned out to be 5-1 in favor with the only nay being Sheehan- who up until the day before had been a yay. After that vote, the builder had a valid permit (had it for several days, but was held up for the vote) and he began the demo as everyone in the room knew would happen. Remember, the 2 previous administrations were also on board with demo of this property, going back to when Jaymont bought it in '89. At that time, the property owner and his family who had owned property in Orlando since the 1800's said the building had no historic value and building new there would create better economic opportunity for the area. This demo and rebuild was a long time coming and was favored by an overwhelming majority. On this subject of saving the facades and building around them- yes, it has been done successfully in some situations and it was all the rage in the 80s and 90s, but it is now seriously frowned upon by preservationist and designers.

    There is some site work happening at the Outpost site at 4th and Chestnut. Been since summer that I’ve seen any equipment out there. Maybe we are gonna get some movement on this.

    From the west, the “crown” is almost complete. Still not sure how the final design was approved with that box on top being taller than the actual crown. The box is highly visible coming into uptown. It’s almost like Crescent said “it’s alright, from down below you won’t be able to see it”. Not a good look for that company.

    We hate this place too. It looks like a clown school, and it fronts I-35 so it's in a highly visible location. Fortunately another proposed hotel will butt up against the beige wall and cover up that side. But there are still three other sides that we can't hide.
