  1. It also means that it could be scaled back to 40 stories and 470 ft.
  2. The scooters don't fly. The riders fly after the scooters hit potholes, curbs, and cars.

    HOPES, WISHES, AND PREDICTIONS FOR THE NEW YEAR

    My wish is that all pedal taverns, party buses, tractors pulling trailers filled with drunks, and those stupid horses and carriages be REMOVED from public right of ways. It's one thing on Broadway where you have multiple lanes and can get around these annoying touron devices, but most of downtown's streets are too narrow, and they cause traffic jams. They seem like a fun idea (for idiots), but they are a public nuisance. If they want to keep these in operation, perhaps they should create some sort of stupid trail on the East Bank near the stadium (especially when the scrapyard leaves) where these idiots can parade around. Also, all scooter users should be licensed and required to wear helmets. You should also have to blow into a breathalyzer in order to start one of those damn things. Furthermore, they should set up stocks in Public Square, so people caught running red lights, weaving in and out of lanes, or driving down sidewalks where there are pedestrians will be forced to sit in the stocks for 2 days while the good citizens of Nashville pummel them with rotten produce. Oh, and I hope Tony's tower gets underway.
  5. I don't care if they rezone it for high-level urban development. It still wouldn't be "walkable". The only way to make Hickory Hollow "walkable" would be to nuke it and start over. Next thing you'll be saying is to turn Maryland Farms into a walkable town center for Brentwood...

    One step away from where all of those damn things should be dumped.

    You have weird damn food tastes.
  8. http://nashvillechristmasparade.com/parade-route/ The good news is it looks like they are lining up on the Woodland St Bridge and James Robertson should be largely unaffected. Parking may still be an issue, though, as it wouldn't surprise me if Metro takes away all of the on street parking...which would be par for the course with how they handle traffic.

    The Gulch Projects

    If it's not related to the Gulch, please take your idiotic debate elsewhere. We've seen this play out 5,000 times on this forum. You get to a certain point and no one backs down from their positions and it devolves into snide and inflammatory comments and a big ole left vs. right circle jerk of likes and thanks. I'm sure most of you have seen Bill Murray's Groundhog Day. I feel like we keep reliving the same nonsense from the same posters. Back to the Gulch...now that there is more activity along the Division St portion, are there or should there be plans to enhance the streetscape from the new bridge to 12th? Maybe even on to the roundabout?

    Triumph Hospitality Hotel, 2221 Elliston Place

    I mean, I know that you have to grab what is available....but there are literally hundreds of lots in Midtown that are better candidates for redevelopment. I like old buildings, but I'm not always one for historic nostalgia. But unlike, say, 1920s era bungalows/craftsman houses, there really aren't a whole lot of multi-story residential buildings like this in the city. And Elliston isn't West End Ave. These are very much appropriate to the scale of that area....it's not like West End where you can justify dropping a 15-20 story building.
  11. It's going to be interesting to see the looks on the faces of guests when they realize they paid $400/night on a Titans weekend to stay at a mid level hotel in an area with no nightlife that is next to the jail.
  12. So was I. Parked on Gay St past the bridges. You're just a quitter.
