  1. I like it! Atleast it has some design to break the boxiness. Really getting a tetris vibe with that first rendering.
  2. 805 Lea, 35 stories, residential, retail

    Nice!!! Slowly we are starting to block the view of The Westin

    Wow I had no clue the Schermerhorn Symphony Hall was that new. For some reason I thought it had been here for 30-40 years. Where did the symphony place before this?

    I probably am about to start a fight, but I can't think of any reason to go to Antioch. So to me that line is funny. Overall I think the lyrics are pretty spot on with the city. That being said, I feel like this was just made to show off the Project 615 t-shirts because that is all they wore in the video. So maybe a paid video by them?
  5. Soccer in Nashville

    Not sure why anyone would want the Titans stadium to be away from downtown. I love having it down there. The gameday atmosphere is great, especially for the away team fans which have been in the 1,000s the last few years. You put the stadium away from downtown and you kill everything that makes the pre/post game experience fun. I think you can blame PSC Metals more for killing the east bank than you can the stadium. I don't care for soccer, but I think if they were smart they would have chosen a location closer to downtown. What you do before or after a game is almost as important. I have no facts to back this up, but I feel like all of the successful sports programs have stadiums in urban environments. Or at least in an environment with ease of access to those things.
  6. I love it!! We need something with some excitement and creativity.
  7. I certainly don't want the cost of living to go up even more. Already hard to stomach the 25% increase in cost of living but only around a 15% increase in wages here.

    I think change is an amazing thing. From my perspective just with working for multiple Fortune 500 companies, change is what drives innovation, efficiency, and so many other things. Sure it is not always a good thing, but I think steady state is much more destructive than "change". That being said, they should change soccer. Such a boring sport to watch

    Will the track be taken down if soccer does move there? If so I am against it, but only for selfish reasons. We have weekly cycling races there during the summer, and then during the winter it is opened up on Tuesdays for us to ride.
  10. Is this the building where the Pharmacy was going in?
  11. JW Marriott - 385' - 34 Floors - topped out

    Maybe because it isn't finished??
  12. Demolishing a building of this size has to be a good sign for the city, right? I would imagine the costs to demolish this are pretty high, so if we have the market to justify doing this, that should be a good thing. Is something like this common across the country? I wouldn't think buildings this large would get demolished very often, even in much larger cities.
  13. 505 CST - 545 feet - 45 Floors - U/C

    I'm def not saying this building is ugly, but this weekend I was thinking how unimpressive it is. As I was driving towards downtown I was staring at the skyline and realized that this building doesn't grab my attention. It should dominate the skyline with how much larger it appears than the Batman building, yet to me it still gets lost. I love having this in the skyline because it adds density, and yes this is beating a dead horse but how much more impressive could this have been with some sort of spire or design. I know things like that cost, but to me that makes the difference of this being "the" building in Nashville from just another one. Sure we will eventually have a new tallest (right???), but with this location I doubt a building could have changed the skyline as much as this one could have.
