  1. Ehhh as someone who has direct involvement with Oracle occasionally, I think you may overestimate the youth movement with this company. Their support roles will tend toward the younger side, but given this will house a lot of sales and ops positions like Amazon will, expect more mid/mid-senior level types who will want the land. Oracle as a technology and culture, I positively hold disdain for them. That is why, for instance, you saw Google last week dump them in favor of SAP. But there's a lot of stuff they do that's hard to get away from. I mean look how long it took to get rid of Java for webapps. Anyway, It's a big deal for Nashville. The tall/vs short conversation is a bit meh here because, as others have noted, nobody in Tech outside of San Jose builds towers. And if you consider one of the tallest in SJ is Adobe at a whopping 279'... well. There's your sign.
  2. Actually, why stop at just LEDs. Since most people can't figure out what it is anyway, I vote for making it a real-time traffic indicator of the streets and what traffic lights are currently green/red/yellow!
  3. There's only so much a competent FoH Engineer can do for something like that, and guys like that are old-school and HARD to come by these days. I echo your sentiment, Mark.
  4. https://www.bizjournals.com/nashville/news/2021/03/10/giarratana-secures-land-for-church-street-tower.html Longtime Nashville developer Tony Giarratana has secured the land to build his latest project on Church Street. Giarratana closed on the one-third acre at 801 Church St. for $12 million this morning, he told the Nashville Business Journal in an exclusive interview. He’d been under contract to buy the parcel for about a year. Site work for a 38-story, 350-unit apartment tower will begin in a matter of days, he said. ALSO of note from the article: Giarratana said he’s eyeing two other tower developments, both in the downtown area. The first would hold condos, and the second would house both apartments and condos, he said. He already owns the land for the first, and will start the Metro design approval process next month. He’s still trying to secure the second site, he said.
  5. This is maybe the most spectacular project in the city right now, and I say that recognizing the immense growth in downtown/SoBro, etc. Skyscrapers are great, but culturally speaking do little for a city like Nashville. This, however, as titanhog said, is world class. I can also see a lot of cues taken from the Schermerhorn.
  6. This string of signage has me laughing from Ohio. Where great areas such as West Chester, Mason, and Polaris all have bridges notifying you where you are.
  7. Can't say I am surprised given how the music industry has been decimated thanks to Covid, however seeing Exit/In jeopardized like this is, especially after Rotier's closing, truly depressing. https://tennesseelookout.com/2021/02/15/exit-in-property-listed-for-sale/
  8. No crane base or tower crane for the stadium construction, all mobile cranes will be used. Same case for our Crew stadium up here in Columbus.
  9. You're thinking of <redacted to not speculate motive> and they do have a large outfit of gear downtown close to the AT&T Hub. It's not all their most critical applications but there are a lot that serve their southeast/central region operations.
  10. The broadcast harkens back to the days of the IRA, when they'd announce codified messages to prevent civilian casualties as they were targeting institutions, not people. Also agree it was targeted against AT&T but beyond that, the rest is simply without facts until they become available. As mod, having read through a few posts thus far, a couple of you are teetering awfully close to breaking the TOS rules, so please lets keep speculation on the who especially out of the conversation. I'm glad everyone is safe and this wasn't worse than it is. And I'm sorry Nashville has had to endure so much this year, this certainly isn't the cherry on top that the city deserves right now.
  11. Their jackfruit taco is hands down one of the better Americanized tacos I've had...
