  2. Still waiting on official word of the stores coming to the shopping center that's planned for the SE corner of Willow Ave & I-40 (Exit 286). From what I've heard, they were hoping to announce the tenants in October but at least one of them (Target) is still trying to tie up some loose ends. Here's a drawing of what's planned but without any store names. The only ones I've heard that are definitely coming are Target and Dick's Sporting Goods but I hope to hear more next week. Supposedly, Home Depot has backed out (inexplicably) as has Costco (not surprising--Cookeville is way too small to support a Sam's Club and a Costco). Lots of denser residential development is taking place in town. In addition to the housing units coming downtown (discussed a few posts above) there are more that have just been announced. I'm not including anything less than 10 units as those are harder to keep up with there are so many. It's amazing how many of townhouses they can squeeze onto just a sliver of land. 13 homes on an .08-acre lot on Lone Oak Drive just off Willow and next another townhouse development that's wrapping up: 26 homes on 4.62 acres at the Hwy 111/I-40 onramp. 66 homes on 7 acres adjacent to Hwy 111: 60 homes on 6 acres on 10th Street. Downtown, some storage units have been torn down to make way for a parking lot. Normally, a new parking lot is not something to be celebrated, but in downtown Cookeville's case it is sorely needed. The on-street parking along Cedar is going to be removed to make way for bike lanes. So the city bought the adjacent storage units, tore them down and replaced them with a parking lot to make up for the lost on-street parking. The before/after pics: And around the corner an upscale pizzeria/wine bar/rooftop bar is going up where there used to be a printing business. This part of downtown ("The WestSide") has become quite a hotspot for foodies with around 20 excellent restaurants and watering holes within easy walking distance of each other.

  3. Walked into the new Independence Center where Crescent has done the ground floor retail spaces. Looks good. I hear most is leased. Miscellaneous uptown photos. Parking lot photo by the LYNX tracks is owned by NC RR where an expansion of the Hilton hotel could go and provide uptown with the elusive 1000 room hotel adding to their existing 400 rooms then already have. That is their ballroom going over the tracks too.

  9. Don't even get me started..... also when is the Library coming down as vagrants have taken over the backside of it. It would be nice to have a sign somewhere showing what is to come. If I was a tourist I would not know anything other than a huge abandoned building. Thank goodness Lennar Multifamily delivered the Ellis and that hotel is being built there. I will say it again Mr Levine could be hero if he used the mass vacant land for a community garden while we wait for development. Imagine people growing food on this land and feeding the homeless and providing a place in these high inflation times for uptown residents to grow their own food. No other city around in NC has this much open vacant land in their downtown.

  23. I used to live in Jefferson Townhouse back in the day (which is on the opposite corner and next to the MLK Bridge). Many of us were friends with the people in that part of the projects. Lots of mostly good memories there, but I completely understand why it needs to be redeveloped. This is a great move in improving the neighborhood.

  26. Honestly this makes the best sense. A new highway bridge with the railroads on the side or underneath instead of 2 bridges over the Cape Fear. https://www.starnewsonline.com/story/news/local/2022/11/25/cape-fear-river-wilmington-nc-weighs-merging-bridge-replacement-with-rail-realignment/69657973007/

  40. There were thousands of people there on January 6. No one is denying it. A few went into the Capitol; no one is denying that either. But you have to ask yourself how did those few people end up inside The Capitol? I mean, there were DC guards inside; they also did nothing once people were inside. So you have a situation where the Alphabet actors opened the doors, led others inside, and DC guards allowed it to continue until people got into the House chamber or whatever and were politely asked to leave. Really? If there was an armed incursion, there would have been automatic gunfire at the crowd. There wasn't. This was a total false flag on a legit rally aimed to impress upon Pence to do the "right thing" and he caved. I've even heard that Trump found out about the false flag plan and that's why he implored people to stay orderly and peaceful in his speech- and that's why he was not impeached. BTW, this is not what an attempted coup would look like in this modern era, and I'll leave it at that. Coups occur quietly and behind closed doors (like voter fraud). It has to be quiet so that the legitimacy aspect isn't questioned by the people. You know this. But the MSM thinks that the population are asleep; they push this Jan 6 coup narrative so that your attention immediately goes to this event, instead of the real way coups are conducted behind the scenes (how do you think the CIA does it overseas?). Because if people understood the reality of coups, they would lose total faith and confidence in the system. When people lose confidence, Wall Street plummets.

  43. I moved here in 2015 and would often go to Rose Park for a view similar to this. I remember being in awe of how big the skyline seemed (compared to Memphis where I moved from). In retrospect, it seems so small and almost barren.

  45. Q&A at NBJ with Jason Koehn, Albion Residential's president about how they came to finding the land, negotiating with Beaman, etc. in regards tot he Albion Music Row project. A couple items of note: - Haven't landed construction loans yet. Earliest they will get underway will be lates spring/early summer of 2023. - Doing deals is tough everywhere right now because of soaring interest rates. "But if you really look long term, nothing fundamentally has changed. Nashville is still a great place for companies to move. It's still a great place to do business." https://www.bizjournals.com/nashville/news/2022/10/19/albion-residential-beaman-behind-the-deal.html

  46. I forgot about this one. Tiny little Baxter (pop. 1,540) which is just a couple of miles west of Cookeville, could see as many as 600 new homes in a single development. Baxter just annexed 60 acres to allow the development of a large, high density housing development just north of I-40. The first 60 homes are already under construction on about 4 acres. https://newstalk941.com/baxter-approves-annexation-of-territory-by-dale-myers-lane/
