  1. This will be very transformative for the Dickerson Pk. area. Can imagine the road from about North 1st St. and Spring St, all the way to Trinity Lane to be completely revamped.
  2. Did a quick Google search on Nashville's MSA population estimates and saw this site https://www.macrotrends.net/cities/23077/nashville/population have it listed as 1,272,000? Not sure if they're using numbers from the census but if I recall Nashville hadn't been that size since the late 90's early 2000's.
  3. Official name for the SomeraRoad Gulch project to be Paseo South Gulch. SomeraRoad unveils vision for Paseo South Gulch site - Nashville Business Journal (bizjournals.com)
  4. Not to detail the thread but I believe you're referring to jazz pianist/vocalist Kandace Springs, who's from Nashville. Esparanza Spalding is from Portland, OR and currently resides in Brooklyn, NY I believe. Coming from the resident jazz head lol.
  5. Wow. 15,000 jobs would have been transformative and believe it would've prompted a more serious look at transit than what's currently happening. Hopefully the mayor takes this as a lesson learned.
  6. Wonder if this Microsoft campus was planned for Nashville before they backed out. https://www.bisnow.com/atlanta/news/office/microsofts-westside-moves-may-mean-future-surge-in-local-employment-107309
  7. Nashville ranked number 3. https://www.dailyechoed.com/austin-texas-is-ranked-top-city-that-has-seen-the-most-newcomers-during-the-pandemic/ https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-12-14/best-us-cities-to-move-to-during-covid-where-and-why-americans-are-relocating
  8. According to my understanding of the Tennessean article this plan isn't meant to be the final interation but a basis to get additional funding allocated for improved infrastructure and transit from the federal government. Apparently in order to qualify for funding a transportation plan has to already be in place. The additonal funds can then be used to expand the system as necessary. Per Tennessean: "Mayor John Cooper said a quick approval was needed to ensure the city is competitive for new federal grant funding expected from the Biden administration next year."
  9. Transportation plan approved. https://www.tennessean.com/story/news/2020/12/16/nashville-transportation-plan-mayor-john-cooper-metro-council-approval/3916274001/
  10. I'd actually prefer this version of 505 CST somewhere in Sobro.
  11. This was mentioned on another site. Wall Street investment banks downsizing. Considering move to other cities. Apparently Nashville was the only city mentioned. https://www.msn.com/en-us/money/smallbusiness/analysts-predict-more-layoffs-in-coming-year-as-wall-street-adapts-to-more-work-from-home-gasparino/vi-BB1b6CNY
  12. Not sure how true this rumor is but was at the bank this morning and was speaking to an owner of a trucking company that handles road construction. Was informed that Nashville was slated by the federal and state government for a massive overhaul of the interstate highways around downtown. He said it would be similar to Minneapolis' interstate system where the highways are built "above the city" whatever that means. He stated it would be a 30-40 year build out.
  13. I do remember reading some years back a similar thing happened in Austin with a lot of backlash against the growth they were having with the population there but the state of Texas stepped in with incentives for potential relocations. I'm hoping it's a similar situation here with the current governor if the city is not willing to make the investment.
