  1. where is it located, and who is the architect? The rendering style itself has a 60s or 70s style to it. A guy wearing a business suit and hat should be walking down the sidewalk. For me, the really bad part of the 60s and 70s would be poor urban relationships -- offsets and surface parking lots. I can't tell what kind of relationship it will have. The right and front look like they're next to a parking lot, but that's probably a hallucination from the rendering style.
  2. Question answered. Thanks. The next question: why wouldn't it work for MEM, and why wouldn't it work for Southwest, or Jet Blue?
  3. I'm glad that Northwest is here and hope they stay. The question for me: are they really forcing Memphis officials (using perhaps the post-apocalyptic post-NWA world described by TennReb above) to keep low fare carriers out of the Memphis market? If so, they stink! They're extorting local monopoly power from Memphis, to its citizens disadvantage, to not move free about the country, for a measly sum. After all, only 30% of their traffic is local. Anyway, I don't know if Northwest has done this. It could be SWA and others aren't here for their own strategic reasons.
  4. I've been wanting to do something with google maps for a while, so I decided to created a google map overlay of the projects listed in this thread and in the South End/South Main Developments thread. Anyway, here's an overlay created from the data that bluff2085 assembled and posted in these threads: http://maps.google.com/maps?q=http://www.g.../ddprojects.kml. If you want to add or change anything, you can download the kml file (at http://www.gatesofmemphis.com/ddprojects.kml) and modify it in google earth. Or, it would be cool if the Center City Commission would modify their application, http://www.downtownmemphis.com/domain/deve...ojects_type.asp, to output the overlay file (the kml file) directly, since their data on downtown development will be as authoritative as anyone's (I think).
