    I'd love some merchandise! Let's see the logo, colors, etc.

    *and* Ovation? Let's see if this all really happens
  4. We took a walking food tour through Germantown once and scooters are very popular there. To me, it makes sense if they are confined in small pocket communities where they can safely traverse a few blocks where the sidewalk/road infrastructure allows it. Having them downtown flying on roads and sidewalks that have been torn up and poorly replaced by Metro is dangerous and I too have seen some spills. I think there would be more reported accidents if the idiots who fell weren't too embarrassed to report it. LOL

    Kinda stinks. I used to see a lot of tourists walk over there and get pictures. Now it's a spot where all the Bridgestone employees go out to smoke.

    Went to Atlanta over the weekend to the Peach Bowl at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Holy crap, it's amazing. My son asked if the Titans would ever get that. Sorry, son. Food was super cheap too. They lowered the prices twice over the last year. Everything was very cheap and free soda refills. Anyways, beautiful dome.

    Great observations, bnacincy. I do agree on the homeless situation in Nashville. I walk a few blocks from the parking lot to work and also walk through downtown every day at lunch and I notice how bad it's getting. I don't really seem them as much in the "core" downtown but they are more present in SoBro and KVB. I pose a question to the board... has anyone noticed the younger homeless crowd? I don't really know what to call them other than "drifters", perhaps? They hang around the Ascend park and railroad tracks. Many of them have pets and tents. I have seen them harass the pedal taverns (flirt with the girls until the operators yell at them to leave). I don't really see them ask for money like the older homeless crowd, but they seem to "just exist" and their numbers seem to be growing exponentially.

    Sheesh. McEwen that runs from the round-a-bout to Wilson Pike needs a serious overhaul before they do this. I used to live out that way and this is such a large artery of of traffic from Brentwood to Cool Springs. Maybe get rid of the round-a-bout too since no one around there knows how the hell they work.

    It’s true! In fact, this guy came back to Spring Hill for his massive 10 mil sq ft Google East campus proposal. Includes 200,000 sq ft in Meth clinics.
  10. 100%. I've said this before... look at all the techie HQ campuses. Collaboration is the key. Not height. Large, wide open spaces with big trendy meeting rooms and places to hold bean bags and other ridiculous things to attract the millennial work force is the new norm. (Apple, Google, Microsoft, Oracle, Fed Ex, etc. etc. etc. all have wide low-height campuses) Height is better off for massive density in a small footprint. Hotels, condos and apartments. UNLESS a builder creates a high rise for office use that doesn't have a lead tenant. That way a company can have two floors... and another may want 3 or 4. Then another may only want half a floor but still wants the downtown vibe. But I guess just building a high rise with the "build it and they will come" mentality is gone since the recession?
  11. Great shot but... ugh. The future of Nashville Hotels on KVB. Boxes. Short boxes.
