  1. JW Marriott - 385' - 34 Floors - topped out

    Crane is on its way down this morning.
  2. JW Marriott - 385' - 34 Floors - topped out

    Yep, it's the size and type they use to assemble and disassemble this big guys. Probably be closed all weekend so the tower crane can lower itself some to eventually be broken up by the other crane.
  3. Nashville International Airport

    I could honestly see Hyatt as a brand potential, considering they're onsite at MCO (Orlando) and a regular at Terminal C and Hyatt Regency at Terminal D at DFW. I could see Delta adding more service here, including upgrading Orlando. That also said, JetBlue may be preparing to make a move in that direction for BNA as well. I wish they'd add JFK back into the mix because that'd open up a lot more connections to smaller airports in the Northeast, such as BTV (Burlington, VT).
  4. Nashville International Airport

    Yeah, only a couple airports ATL serves versus what BNA does within the Southwest network. That said, the business community is most excited since Delta had that route on total lock, until August. Delta will slash those ticket prices, if they already haven't today, for those dates and onward in August. Atlanta and Nashville have a sort of similar business relationship to Dallas and Houston, although that example is about as big an example between two cities you'd ever get.
  5. Nashville International Airport

    Southwest has announced multiple times per day service to Atlanta beginning in August. This is to compete with Delta's current monopoly along that route and it'll be quite interesting to see how Delta reacts.
  6. They'll have to pump it out because that's pretty solid basement rock in downtown Nashville, at least that section of it.
  7. Nashville International Airport

    Smyrna's main runway is just technically offset 10 degrees from BNA's longest and I've heard that happened before, with regards to aircraft mistaking MQY for BNA. Smyrna does run charter flights with Suncountry, they bring in 737-800s from GPT (Gulfport/Biloxi) and they have plenty of corporate aircraft operations. They theoretically could build up a small terminal on site and have TSA for such, but I doubt it will occur. It would be Allegiant's only real chance to get into the market.
  8. Nashville International Airport

    Thinking about it, I'm actually a little surprised Allegiant hasn't tried to get into negotiations with the Smyrna-Rutherford County Airport to get into the Nashville market. They're notorious for going to smaller airports, such as MidAmerica Airport near St. Louis and Rickenbacker Int'l south of Columbus, Ohio.
  9. Nashville International Airport

    Yeah, I've never seen an airline add 14 cities from one location in a day. That said, many are seasonal, but still. Damn, Frontier ain't playing!
  10. Nashville International Airport

    I mean, airplanes really are fancy electronic beer cans to begin with.
  11. Nashville International Airport

    Southwest's fleet is the smallest it's been in a couple years right now with the retirement of the 500s and 300s and slowly taking delivery of new 800s and 800 MAX aircraft. The company is focusing heavily on streamlining some destinations, like Florida to the Caribbean/Mexico and eventually lining up on the West Coast for Hawaii.
  12. 505 CST - 545 feet - 45 Floors - U/C

    Yes, they're permanent and required by the FAA. Nearly all the bigger towers downtown have them. AT&T is an exception as the spires at the top qualify as illuminated because even if it goes dark, they very tip of the spires are on generators to keep them on for safety.
  13. More Accolades for Nashville

    While not exactly in-depth, a major int'l superstar said Nashville had a profound affect on her, and helped inspire her album dropping in April. I think that's pretty cool.
  14. Indianapolis is kind of a surprise. They have no mass transit besides busses, not true identity as a city, and it is more spread out than several cities on here. I'm guessing the state is willing to fork over heaven and earth to land them. They just want to beat Chicago really, that's all.
  15. MSA South - Williamson & Rutherford Counties

    The biggest issue is the Chattanooga subdivision, which this section of track is under, is one of CSX's busiest and would have to be double-tracked at minimum and be VERY costly.
