  1. West End/Mid Town/Music Row/Vandy Projects

    nope, i would normally agree, but i actually like that quirky building. and it has been there for ever. but between 23rd and 24th where that strip mall is, yes by all means put it there!
  2. The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    we should also consider. when we were lucky enough to have a presentation at our monthly meet up in December. We learned where the price tag comes from to begin with. They were fully aware that government projects often run over budget. So they estimated the costs with that already in mind. The took the high estimate and added a set percentage on that. I want to say it was 30% but i could be wrong. Basically it broke down like this. simplified. If the estimate was $90-100. they went with $100. then added 30%. so the presented price is $130. but in reality could cost as little as $90.
  3. dang, I missed rookzie! I was at an all day oscar movie marathon. I should be there next month.
  4. The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    Last night I saw a notax4tracks commercial during the local news, and another one this morning. It was leaning way to the side of fear mongering and gross exaggeration. Also, I discovered they have a Twitter account today. I was apprehensive about reading the comments, but to my surprise most of the comments were people calling them out on their exaggerations.
  5. I was just walking down 5th to grab a bite, a beer, and some music before the preds game and saw John looking at the signs on the fence. He was on the phone so I didn't say hi. But if you are reading this Hey John!
  6. The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    also, many of the people that i see commenting against it, do have other ideas, but those idea are usually making incorrect assumptions. here are some i have heard from personal friends. "they didn't even consider just having a train to Murfreesboro, there are already tracks there!" "this does nothing to make the existing bus system better" "they have no plan to build sidewalks to actually get people to these supposed train stations" "I live in South Nashville and work in Brentwood, this does nothing for me" obviously i try to educate everyone I can about these fallacies. but there is just so much bad info out there. and my most favorite of all "they are raising my property taxes to pay for trains for those liberal millennials that arent even from here"
  7. The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    there is a ton of mis information out there about the transit plan. Most of the comments i see on social media keeps repeating the increase in taxes, comes from non residents, and flat out attacks the mayor. Im sorry but if you cannot separate the mayor from a civic project that is clearly needed, you need to grow up.
  8. im going to have to miss today, Ive had the flu and still need rest.
  9. I want to make the next cut, if there is one, but not actually get it. Making a top 5 or even a top 3 will do a lot to help attract maybe a smaller, less intrusive, company.

    in addition to being built as a Hyatt, I'm fairly sure it was a Crowne Plaza in the late 90s, when I had my Junior prom there in 1999.

    I'll believe it when I see it.
  12. MSA South - Williamson & Rutherford Counties

    I wonder if the location maybe hopeful that csx will eventually allow for passenger service?
