  1. News on the AEG section of Nashville Yards: -The 4,000 seat theater will be modeled after The Mission Ballroom in Denver (flexible standing or seating). - The Theater looks to be incorporated into 12-13 story structure that will feature 275,000 sq. ft. of office space. - 3 additional towers in 25-30 story range each (based on the rendering) with high-end apartments, featuring approx. 1,000 units collectively. Two of them appear to border the west side of 9th Ave. North. - The multiplex cinema will remain with 8 screens. - A collection of food, beverage, and shopping of

  2. I went to the Matthews Community meeting for the Silver Line station area planning last night and I thought y'all might appreciate some of the pictures/information from the event. I meant to take more pictures but was a bit rushed and I didn't want to bother people trying to look at the maps/renderings. It definitely felt like they were trying to show the best possible outcomes that could come with the silver line. They showed some real moonshot ideas in some of the drawings that would be awesome if implemented, but seem prohibitively expensive considering we still don't know where

  7. It appears that Mill Creek Residential is, indeed, the new developer of this site, which will be a residential project called Modera McGavock (perhaps in the 30 story range) featuring 400 units, 6,000 sq. ft. of restaurant space, and 1,800 sq. ft. of retail, along with an internal garage. A height variance will need to be applied for, as the zoning for this particular lot is 15 stories.

  9. I have another map with the major land holders that I use for other things, lets say. Below is pretty much the footprint of all of Vanderbilt's land holdings in this area. I have Belmont's below that FYI.

  10. My hope that there is a lot more retail included. With the number of residents that will be in the Yards area, they will have to have at least one big box type retailer like Target. It will be interesting to see what kind of other retail they do get. It all cannot be aimed at the Country tourist crowd. My guess is some of this retail will be a little more high end in nature. More services as well such as dry cleaners, dentist, pharmacy services, etc will be needed as the density increases.

  13. A 14 story residential tower featuring 296 apts., 10,000 sq. ft. leasing office, and 310 capacity garage will be built on 1.04 acres at 1904-1916 Hayes St. by Subtext Developers out of St. Louis. Dynamik Design will be the architects. No renderings or timeline released yet.

  14. Man, I still think JW could have made a killing with the top level of that parking deck (at least half of it) and turned it into outdoor event space. Weddings, work events, etc. Similar to what the Grand Bohemian did on their "rooftop" outdoor event space. JW, being a very high end full service hotel, I would have imagined event space like that would be booked in a heart beat. Also, I just think tops of parking decks are ugly and developers don't use enough creativity to make them useful other than a handful of projects (DEC green roof, Skyhouse's Parking amenity deck, Dimensional Place in

  16. Woah! They've obviously seen the potential of taking Lower Broadway and "extending" it to 9th Avenue and Church... with a little 'touch' to Broadway. I'd guess that the immediate success of 5th & Broad has made them look at the potential for this with great promise. I'm even going to stick my neck out and say that within a decade Nashville will (could?) have one of the Top 10 downtowns for entertainment. I'd say it's a Top 15-20 now.

  17. I hope the city council collectively grow a pair regarding her "concerns". This is EXACTLY what needs to be going up a block away from a streetcar line that is going to need all the help it can get to reach ridership goals. Not to mention an urban greenway literally across the street. They successfully killed the office tower at 4th and Hawthorne further submitting the streetcar to a slow and probably painful start. This is blocks away from anything historical. Let's see; a Bojangles, a gas station, B of A branch, car wash, a relatively new apartment building and a cell tower are supposed to b

  19. So the Current seems to be taking forever to finish but so far it’s really on another level for Richmond. I love, love, love how tight it is making the streets around it feel. The Hull Street side is attractive but it’s the least impactful, IMO . When the food hall and Benchtop Brewery open it will be a very impressive block (throw in the new ABC store and Stellas Market /the Continental across the street and Manchester, well the old manufacturing center of Manchester, may finally feel like a proper neighborhood. Here are some photos. The next to last photo is of the new d

  20. Amazon One (566,000 sq. ft. of office space) already has some employees working there. Amazon reports that they have now hired over 2,000 employees for the Operations Center of Excellence that will eventually take up at least 3 towers in Nashville Yards. Amazon now ranks among downtown's largest private employers and could be the largest of that group, rivaled only by Bridgestone Americas and HCA Healthcare Inc. (NYSE: HCA). Their return to the office is an important barometer for downtown's recovery from Covid-19 shutdowns and other restrictions put in place to slow the spread of Covid-1

  23. I haven't seen it in person yet, just read comments about it in the Hip Donelson group. Donelson Plaza started demolition on the western portion of the structure along 2710-2720 Old Lebanon Pike. They are making room for new housing at Donelson Plaza within walking distance to the Music City STAR commuter rail at Donelson Station. https://www.donelsonplaza.com/updates/2021/7/19/phase-2-construction-begins-this-week https://www.donelsonplaza.com/updates/2021/7/19/phase-2-to-add-apartments-to-donelson-plaza I am hoping more transit oriented development for this area will increa

  24. And let's not forget Nash Yards' 37 story residential tower just north of Grand Hyatt, Nash Yards' Residential project of 10-15 stories on SE corner of Commerce and 10th North, Streelight's 30 story residential tower east of Amazon One & Two, 16 story Edition Hotel on 11th Ave. North at Porter, and Flank may very well have another 20+ story project in between Gibson and Asurion. It's gonna be one dense area!

  26. Here is a diagram from the Water/Sewer permit: Looks like it will have residential at the street level. Also no vehicle access to Hayes Street, and the parking garage will be lined with residential as well. This area is kind of a pedestrian no-mans-land, so I’m not surprised at the lack of retail. A few more projects like this, and ground level retail will make a bit more sense. I’m curious to see renderings, but I’m happy with the proposal.

  28. Like many on this board, I would love to see Richmond throw up some 600' buildings; however, a shorter but dense urban core makes for a better city than a few sparkling, disconnected high rises and a few major league franchises. Richmond has several advantages over every large Southern city with the exception of New Orleans (which is no economic threat to anyone). Richmond was a "big town" before the automobile. Therefore, its core reflects a 3-5 mph pace. Richmond is a pedestrian-centric city by nature. Atlanta, Jacksonville, Nashville, Charlotte (the epitome of generic) and Raleigh are
