    Midtown Nashville
  1. West End Summit

    FWIW, I noticed workers replacing some of the chain-link fencing on the 17th Ave. side yesterday.
  2. West End/Mid Town/Music Row/Vandy Projects

    Preaching to the choir. Seems no planning document survives the next developer's big idea.
  3. Ate at the 'shroom Sunday night, interior and food the same, but agree the exterior looks nice.
  4. Nashville College & University Expansion

    Proposed would be a more accurate word than planned.
  5. West End/Mid Town/Music Row/Vandy Projects

    Cook Out was the last straw. That's a difficult location and too small to do anything to fix it. The former TGI Friday's at the other end of the block is still vacant, too.
  6. West End/Mid Town/Music Row/Vandy Projects

    My (equally) uneducated guess is not likely, at least in the foreseeable future.
  7. West End/Mid Town/Music Row/Vandy Projects

    Not that I am aware; the signage says that it is for residents of the Americana Apartments, and has done so for a long time.
  8. West End/Mid Town/Music Row/Vandy Projects

    Not buying it; another big splash announcement that'll fizzle. And the grocery? Everybody promises a grocery [Hello Aertson/Buckingham!] but so far, no cigar. Wake me when they start construction.
  9. West End Summit

    Not to defend Palmer, but how long has it been, has there been any situation where the current fencing, spraying, etc., has posed a harm to anyone? [There are no neighborhood kids.] Apparently there are no code violations, either building or health, at the site. Metro permitted the excavation twice without imposing any completion requirements. We're stuck with that. The simple truth is that there is nothing that can be done by litigation, legislation, or otherwise to make the hole go away. The only relief will come from development. All other talk is barbershop pontificating.
  10. West End/Mid Town/Music Row/Vandy Projects

    Construction trailer installed on First Bank branch site at 19th and West End this morning.
  11. Save The Cordell Hull and The Ben West

    $40 million to renovate Cordell Hull in new budget proposal
  12. West End/Mid Town/Music Row/Vandy Projects

    Well, I hate those damn trees. They're ugly and they force me to walk too close to the street. Not too fond of that building, either. There, I feel better!
  13. West End/Mid Town/Music Row/Vandy Projects

    JJs is on the corner of Broadway and Lyle. Article was sloppy in its description. This move, if it occurs, makes sense for the project as the current footprint is too small for what was proposed. My guess is that the original plan assumed aqusition of the JJs location all along.
  14. Not a good sign. Embry probably is the wrong developer - suburban mentality, etc. But, whomever is the developer, why are we still debating who gets the conference rooms? Seems to me that this whole shebang has been half-assed from the start with headlines substituting for plans and details. I'm not optimistic.
