    The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    Yeah...about the only place with distance / density of people for this to work (like in Europe or other countries that are either compact or densely populated) is the northeast. Weirdly, the areas where the first European settlers landed are still the most densely populated areas with town after town after town closely situated together. As people spread out west...they REALLY spread out (in comparison)...especially past the Mississippi River (other than the coast).

    More Accolades for Nashville

    We are definitely world-class as far as some entertainment metrics.

    Soccer in Nashville

    ^^Will they still have the state fair there? I mean, it's a lousy fair (as state fairs go)...so losing it to some other location is not that big of a deal, IMO.

    Nashville Bits and Pieces

    Plus...there may actually be some people who want to go to both festivals.

    The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    It has a long ways to go to be a good route from I-40 to I-65N. Too bad they couldn't have at least kept that portion of I-840 intact because it's really needed. I think the NW portion of I-840 is the piece that not only would have been really, really expensive to build (Cheatham County has way too many hills)...but also is least needed. Briley is a decent option on that side of town to get from I-24/65 over to I-40W.

    ^^Love that lighting on Indigo!
  8. It actually wouldn't be bad if all along the interstate (on the stadium side) we started to see some updated hotels and restaurants that cater more to travelers and people who can't quite afford to stay in the core. Some hotels like Hyatt Place, Holiday Inn Express, Courtyard by Marriott, Hampton Inn, etc...with a price point under $200 and more of your "stop and stay" than limited full service like in the core. Add in some restaurants like Chilis, Applebees, etc. Would fill a need and also improve the area a bit more (if it were updated). It would only be right along the interstate between Shelby and Spring Street and no closer to downtown than S. 1st Street.

    CBD/SoBro/RutledgeHill/Rolling Mill Hill Projects

    From the article, I couldn't tell if Kid Rock was saying they would or wouldn't put his name on this. I do like that they will cater a little more towards rock music. Good to have something other than just country. Will be cool to also have the African American music museum down there too.

    ^^Moxy seems like it's been going on for a long time...with still a long ways to go. I guess when you're refurbishing historic buildings, it goes a lot slower.

    IKEA to Nashville

    The major differences, for now, seem to be that Nashville grabbed hold of the 21st Century and propelled itself forward (some of that is leadership...some is sports...some is the music scene...and we just happen to have the right industries for this time in history)...while Memphis rested on its laurels near the end of the 20th Century and got passed by (a lot of that seems to be because of fractured leadership and some bad decisions). Some of it is luck (good luck for Nashville and bad luck for Memphis). I'm sure Memphis will have its day again...and Nashville will take a step back...I just don't know when.
