    So Nashville added another resident last night... Turner Wallace Chinetti 9 pounds 6 ounces. 20 inches. Mom and baby are doing great! He’s ready to argue about scooters, height restrictions in the inner core, and how the MDHA needs to go!

    Sorry I’m late. Traffic was a mess. All of those damn protestors from Atlanta and Winston-Salem that are upset.

    Hey guys, I've been on this job off and on since it started this summer and we love seeing the aerial pictures. Someone stumbled upon this forum and some of us check it often but are usually too busy to reply. The I beam contraption in the south west corner is for testing the strength of the piles that the tower crane will sit on. Things are starting to shape up. Last I heard the beloved guard shack is being saved for the gate guard to use once it starts to get cold out here!

    I don't usually start a new thread...but I just think we could all give a round of applause to markhollin for posting so many great photos every single morning. Around 4am or so...I start looking for his posts, knowing he's going to have more goodies to show us. This board wouldn't be half the board it is without his input. Thanks so much!

    I meant to post this picture last week from our Bday trip to NYC. The picture came out pretty cool, but it was absolutely amazing from inside the plane. The sun beams shining through the clouds onto the city.

    Was nervous about posting a pic since all of the other posts look so professional, but here goes... This is from a few nights ago. Also, isn't it amazing how dense the skyline looks when all the towers are the same height.

    I had a one-hour meeting with Joe Cain, the Director of Urban Development for MDHA yesterday afternoon. We covered several topics related to downtown and East Nashville. In relation to this thread, we spoke for about 20 minutes on the Trolley Barns sites, and how the final decision for the Hensler/Eakin proposal came about. Here are some general take-aways: 1) The design board was very concerned that the feel and history of the Trolley Barns themselves would not be literally overshadowed by 15-30 story structures immediately to the north and west. They wanted a sense of scale so that the neighborhood that has been established there would still feel inviting and walkable. 2) They didn’t want a wall of taller structures blocking-off Rolling Mill Hill from downtown. They felt that a less dense air-space would create a better flow working up the hillside. 3) He made clear that the renderings from Eakin and Hensler were just initial concepts to get a sense of mass, but there would be much more design processing before final ideas are approved. 4) Joe felt that the Eakin office building facing Hermitage Avenue would have a lot of street activation with restaurant and retail. He thinks there will be a grocery store as part of the structure. He believes it will still stay in the 5-8 story range. 5) The buildings that will border directly on the existing Trolley Barn properties will be 2-4 stories, and will echo the same dark brown brick feel, with wide sidewalks and greenery, etc. This will add a very livable quality as well as welcoming space for tourists, diners, etc. to the shops and restaurants that will proliferate there. 6) He wasn’t so sure that the “Drive-In Theater Screen” look of the Hensler residential building would look that way in it’s final design. He thinks it will be more visually stimulating than that. He agreed that the large 4-story opening looking through the center of that building was very eye-catching, and the committee very much liked that. It will most likely remain in the 20-25 story range. 7) All of the buildings will have a parking element (garages either below grade and/or above) to them to not only take care of the new tenants, but also to replace the large surface lots currently on the land. If above grade, they want very tasteful treatments, and definite first floor street activation. 8) He believes that the back corner of the lot that is currently just south of the parking lot that borders on Hermitage Ave. and includes a retention/drainage pond, will be developed with a 4-6 story structure eventually, which will also include it’s own parking. 9) He also thinks the small lot that is on the SE corner behind the Trolley barns (that butts-up against the ridge leading up to the former Rolling Mill Hill Hospital) could very well have a 4-6 story garage built there, with first floor activation. 10) As far as the highly important/extremely valuable final lot on the SE corner of KVB and Hermitage, Joe said it will not be developed until after the other Eakin/Hensler projects are completed. Primarily this is due to the fact that it will have to temporarily be a parking lot to help replace some of the surface spots being redeveloped. Once those projects and their adjoining garages are ready, then they can “get to work” on that prime corner lot. He fully expects that it will receive many bids, and thinks it will be a 30-story structure that will become a high-profile, landmark piece. 11) He also shared that there was a tremendous amount of sewer work that had to be built for the Rolling Mill Hill development (there never used to be proper drainage when the hospital and earlier mills used to be up there, and it created tremendous run-off problems for Hermitage Avenue). They will be extending much of that work under these Trolley Barn sites as they grading and foundational work get underway. 12) Joe shared that there were incredible environment issues up on Rolling Mill Hill because nothing had ever been properly monitored or enforced from the 1800’s until the 1990s when it was all abandoned. He said a lot of waste from the hospital and old mills had seeped into the ground before it could flow down into the river (ughh!). Also tremendous clean-up work had to be done on the Trolley Barns due to all the fuel spillage, old tanks, etc. from when they were the maintenance buildings for all the city busses. 13) There have been many discussions with NES to bury the power lines that run along the west side the river, but the cost would be astronomical. NES is fearful that if they put all the work into doing that, then every other neighborhood in town that has power lines will want the same, and it will become a massive headache. They at least convinced NES to bury cables along the eastern edge of Rolling Mill Hill, where two power towers used to be located. Personally, he would love to see them all gone in the downtown area in the future, along with telephone poles.

    I'll call these "uptown randos," all taken yesterday along Tryon. I wanted to capture detail on some of the smaller architectural features. BTW, the car is a McLaren 720S Spider – could run you a cool $400K. As always, click on the photo for ultra high-res...may take a few seconds to load.

    RECENTLY COMPLETED LARGE PROJECTS THIS WILL INCLUDE PROJECTS FROM THE LAST SIX YEARS OR SO AS THIS IS PART OF THE STILL ONGOING CONSTRUCTION BOOM IN NASHVILLE. I thought I would put the list together just to show the impact of the current construction boom. I consider the start of the boom loosely as just after the flood OF 2010, but the full impact did not become evident until 2013. IMO, the real catalyst for change was the start of the Music City Center / convention center in 2010 and the opening in 2013. NASHVILLE STARTED AT A DISADVANTAGE TO OUR “SO CALLED” PEER CITIES, BUT HAVE MADE HUGE STRIDES PLAYING CATCH UP TO ROLL PAST MANY OTHER CITIES THAT WERE CONSIDERED PEER AS WELL. But, have we really rolled past them? Maybe in some areas, but not all. Nashville has many shortcomings such as no viable mass transit system or even a plan at this time and going with that is horrible traffic. I believe every city has strong points and weak points and to compare one city to another is a bit of a misnomer, we all, however do it when traveling. Charlotte is not NYC as Nashville is not Atlanta. To compare any southern city with a northern city with the exception of New Orleans will always get you into trouble. Different times for different cities. Several other areas in which Nashville falls short are homelessness, affordable housing, a living wage, lack of sidewalks on many urban streets, lack of major art museums(with permanent exhibits) and attractions, no amusement park, lack of a grid can be considered as well, and probably the biggest of all is a substandard public school system. YEAR LISTED IS THE COMPLETION YEAR, TO THE BEST OF MY KNOWLEDGE. CRITERIA FOR THE LIST ARE BUILDINGS OF 50 UNITS OR MORE, 5 STORIES OR MORE, SIGNIFICANT CULTURAL BUILDINGS OR OTHER STRUCTURES OF SIGNIFICANT VALUE OR SIGNIFICANCE TO THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT OF NASHVILLE. As for the names of all of the apartments and condo buildings in Nashville, I for one, call for an end to all of the cliche ish names, which IMO is becoming tiresome. Note 16, Opus, Alto, Contralto, Octave, Cadence ...Please, Stop The Madness!!! Yes we have a brand, but let's not run it into the ground.

THIS WILL ALSO ALLOW CRIME TO BE LOWERED AND ENCOURAGE DEVELOPMENT ALONG THE 12 SOUTH AND THE LAFAYETTE/MURFREESBORO ROAD CORRIDORS. ENVISION EDGEFIELD ENVISION SUDEKUM NAPIER TRANSIT Currently there is no plan in place. The last two plans have been defeated by either public opinion or by a Metro vote. The first not being ambitious enough and the second probably too ambitious and too expensive to start with. Metro seems to have studied this issue to death and the members of the Urban Planet group could probably offer just as good of a solution as the plans Metro has come up with in the past, with zero cost. The next mayor will have to tackle this issue one way or the other and the governor has stated that the state law probably needs to change in order for the state to be involved in financing any plan, before growth is stalled. There will have to be an integrated regional plan, that works from the inside out. It does look as if the Airport Authority and the Nashville Visitors Corporation in conjunction with the Music City Center will probably end up financing its own rail line at some point from the airport to the SoBro area, as money is in the budget on both ends of the line for infrastructure work. It remains to be seen what will be done and who will build this line. To say that the regional RTA has a plan is a misconceived notion at this point in time as well. Metro along with the mayors of the surrounding counties are part of the RTA that in effect have done very little other than to study. The last RTA plan and study was done in 2016 and now is three years old. The RTA plan can be seen here. The Improve act passed by the state gives local governments the power to pass referendums to pass a transit plan, the first of which was defeated in Nashville. At this point in time I have not seen a lot of improvements from the improve act other than the long awaited fix of I 440 that was 20 years overdue. The state has the power to build toll roads but are too afraid to do it and the State of Tennessee is a pay as you go State so no money can be borrowed for roads or improvements. POPULATION THE MSA POPULATION HAS GROWN BY 341,027 PEOPLE OVER THE LAST 9 YEARS. If the numbers below are correct, the Nashville MSA is already ahead of the 2025 population projections from the GNRC as of July 1, 2018.

I think the true numbers will lie somewhere in the middle of the highlighted numbers below. Again, just my opinion, but Nashville needs to break the 2% growth mark every year for the MSA. In 2018 the MSA did break that number at 2.24% to come in at the 7th fastest growing MSA in the nation. Some of the ring counties are hitting numbers in the 3% and above range, but Davidson has only hit over 2 % in 2012 and for the last 3 years being under a 1% growth rate.

We will know a lot more once the 2020 census is done. I am unsure as to why the numbers are so low , but I can speculate. 1)cost of housing increase. 2) available housing. 3) most of the units built in the core were STR’s or STR conversions. I wanted to give the numbers for the cities Nashville is compared to the most and I use the County numbers since Nashville is a Metro form of Gov. and the county numbers give a closer picture of what is really happening. 2018 692,587 3,581 0.52% 2017 689,006 1,576 0.23% 2016 687,430 6,546 0.96% 2015 680,884 10,704 1.60% 2014 670,180 9,724 1.47% 2013 660,456 11,054 1.70% 2012 649,402 13,575 2.14% 2011 635,827 8,074 1.29% *World Population Review Compared to Travis County Texas 2018 1,248,743 20,972 1.71% 2017 1,227,771 21,388 1.77% 2016 1,206,383 26,210 2.22% 2015 1,180,173 27,415 2.38% 2014 1,152,758 30,173 2.69% 2013 1,122,585 25,513 2.33% 2012 1,097,072 35,353 3.33% 2011 1,061,719 31,180 3.03% Mecklenburg County 2018 1,093,901 16,590 1.54% 2017 1,077,311 20,646 1.95% 2016 1,056,665 23,383 2.26% 2015 1,033,282 22,870 2.26% 2014 1,010,412 19,627 1.98% 2013 990,785 23,702 2.45% 2012 967,083 23,333 2.47% 2011 943,750 20,492 2.22% Wake County NC (Raleigh)Wake 2018 1,092,305 20,419 1.90% 2017 1,071,886 23,505 2.24% 2016 1,048,381 25,950 2.54% 2015 1,022,431 24,642 2.47% 2014 997,789 23,782 2.44% 2013 974,007 22,113 2.32% 2012 951,894 23,165 2.49% 2011 928,729 21,847 2.41% CONTINUED BUSINESS RECRUITMENT According to many sources the trend will continue for the foreseeable future of business relocation and expansion to Middle TN. Business leaders that have relocated from NY and California companies have indicated that this is just the beginning. For this to continue the issues of affordable and available housing, transit, homelessness, and public education are going to have to be key areas that Nashville will have to make major improvements to. The bright side is that the State may be starting to come around after hearing that transit is going to be a sticking point for new business relocation, so the state will have to take an active role. The state is doing more with higher education as far as free 2 year tech schools and making this available to all Tenneseans. Metro is making some headway with affordable housing and hopefully that will continue if the administration changes. Transit is going to have to be dealt with at some point by Metro, the MD TN region and the State, otherwise things will grind to a halt. I do think the next two years things are going to start to happen. (Just a guess and my opinion). The state is already a very business friendly state tax wise and that will continue to draw business here from around the country, maybe not to the downtown, but at least to the Middle TN area. I do continue to see the central core to continue to grow and become its own viable group of neighborhoods in the future. NEIGHBORHOODS PAST, PRESENT & FUTURE The major changes we have seen in Nashville over the past decade is the rise of many of the urban neighborhoods to viable and now unaffordable areas of town. East Nashville and Sylvan Park led the way in the late 90s into the early 2000s and was followed by Gemantown, Salemtown, then the 12 South area, The Nations, Historic Buena Vista and now WEHO. Many of these areas were working class or minority neighborhoods that have since been gentrified and some are priced out of reach by many Nashvillians. Some of these areas are still experiencing lots of property crime as they are on the fringe of other neighborhoods that are not as well off as these areas. Problems such as too many AirBnBs are in some of the neighborhoods meaning there are many transient residents and non permanent residents thus no neighborhood. Many of the areas are having tall and skinnies built which just are not as appealing to as many people as traditional housing. At some point this will hopefully take care of itself, but many folks are priced out of these once traditional neighborhoods. This may explain the slow population growth over the last three years as Nashville's growth is eclipsed by our peer cities county growth by any where from 1 to 2 percentage points given the year looked at above. One area that is not activated right now is the Midtown area north of West End and once the BroadWest project is complete I do think there will be a host of other projects in that area and that will become its own district. My takeaway, is that maybe we are becoming a victim of our own success in some of these areas, but of course this is always up for debate on the board. Everyone can disagree with me on the speculation here as this is speculation on my part, but I do welcome comments on the reasons why Nashville is not doing well population wise. I just don't know for sure! I can go on with a dissertation but I am sure everyone isat information overload at this point in time.

    *Note: I copied the text from a post I made on another forum. Most of the commentary is not for y'all. Some of this is construction progress. Some is just miscellaneous. I wish I was half as talented as some of you are with your camera thingys, but this will have to do.* A walk around downtown today. Some of these are updated favorites from years past. The skyline, as viewed through the lens of "Ghost Ballet." The SoBro skyline, with the new JW Marriott rising in the background. From the water's edge. More SoBro. Amazing that none of those towers existed before 2005-6, and only two of them were there before 2015. With "Ghost Ballet" in frame. The main skyline. It's such an interesting perspective being right down on the shore. It doesn't translate as well in pictures (perhaps more for SoBro), but the buildings seem a little more imposing, since you're looking at them from what might as well be 30' below "ground level"... The landing, and looking down the Cumberland River (flowing north, here). I am so glad the city has finally started to invest in the waterfront. There is still a lot of work to do, but it is such a great asset to have, and especially important since we are not a coastal city. This was difficult to frame....since I was using my phone. And it was bright, so I couldn't really see the display.:( A city rises from the jungle... Surprise visitor! The General Jackson. Notice the smokestacks are angled down so it can clear the bridges downtown. From the John Seigenthaler Pedestrian Bridge (formerly the Shelby Street Pedestrian Bridge). Back so soon?! Headed back towards Opryland, through the Korean Veterans Memorial Bridge. Rolling Mill Hill can be seen to the top right. L-R: 222 2nd Ave S (office), Hyatt Place (hotel), The SoBro (apartments), Encore (condos), Bridgestone North America (corporate HQ), Pinnacle (office). The 45-story, 523' 505 (apartments) is topped out and the exterior is nearly complete. It will not be the tallest building by actual height (Batman still holds that title), but it will have the tallest occupied floor by a considerable margin. The Schermerhorn Symphony Center (middle-left), the JW Marriott (the oval shaped building with the crane), Bridgestone Arena (middle -- also to note it is the 5th busiest concert venue in the US), and Cambria (hotel) rising above the arena (don't worry -- the blue isn't the final color. It will have cladding). Pinnacle. Florida Georgia Line is garbage. A hole in Bridgestone... Schermerhorn, with the JW Marriott in the background. Construction of the Moxy (hotel) at 3rd and Broad (former Trail West building). The Holy Temple of Hockey. Demolition of the old convention center to make way for the new 5th + Broad development (Residential, office, retail, museum). Musicians walking to their car after a gig. The historic Ryman Auditorium on your left, the famous Tootsie's Orchid lounge on your right. 505 Construction of the Dream Hotel on 4th (backs up to Printer's Alley), which will combine new construction with the rehab of some existing historic buildings. More of the Dream. The yellow brick building behind it is also being rehabbed to become a boutique hotel. The former Noel Place will become the Noelle (weird?), part of Starwood's Tribute Portfolio. Yes, that is a bus on top of a building. It is going to be a bar, on top of yet another hotel conversion in the area (this one is The Bobby). With all of the big name, towering hotels being built around the Music City Center, there is actually quite a bit of hotel activity in this little corner of downtown (more or less centered around Printer's Alley). It will become somewhat of a boutique hotel district. (I'm not particularly fond of the angles in this shot)...to the right of the Hotel Indigo, you can see yet another boutique hotel in the works (the building with the exposed sort of seafoam green area on its roof)...The Fairlane. The seat of the Metro Nashville government, in all of its Deco glory. Random. UBS....originally built as First American Bank. A re-hash of an old favorite. Deaderick St. Tennessee Tower (Snodgrass), the War Memorial Auditorium, and Legislative Plaza. Doubletree Hotel (left) and Bank of America (right). The plaza in-between. Walking up to Legislative Plaza. L-R: James K Polk, Fifth Third Bank, First Tennessee, 505, Hermitage Hotel. Who wants to climb that ladder? I love how the reflection of the cloud almost makes it appear as if the top of the building is invisible. It completes the shape of the cloud. Construction mess. Alley graffiti behind McKendree. 2nd Ave. Cumberland Park. I'd love to do this again with a real camera, at some point.
