  1. I drive a full size truck (not that big though lol). I have three children that would not fit very well into a smaller truck and these kids will only get bigger. I live in the urban core and have for over 15 years. I did not depart to the suburbs because I had kids. I am also renovating an older home and needed a truck for that purpose. Speaking of stereotypes, not everyone is in thier late 20's/early 30's with only a fur baby to take care of and drives a Honda Element . The awful person part is debatable, might want to ask my wife
  2. Ditto. Have the same concern. Even worse, Bridal Suites AirBnB anyone?
  3. I have lived in East Nashville/Inglewood for almost 13 years and have never had an issue at Inglewood Kroger. Do I wish they had a few more amenities? Sure, but I'm still happy they added fresh sushi, lol. I have also had very few issues at Eastland Kroger and I suspect I would have at almost any grocery store, at least occasionally. The worst Nashville Kroger I have ever patronized was...drum roll please... the Belle Meade Kroger. It was a real $hithole back in the day. The meat always smelled in the summer and there was trash everywhere, all the time.
  4. So does anyone know if the new development at Riverside Village will even have a commercial/retail component? I would hate it if it was only residential. Going to miss the Fond Object building (and also the affordable/kid friendly shows they had in the back area) although not the rest of the brick o block structures. I was all for the proposed development that was shot down by the NIMBY's without a cause.
  5. Someone posted on one of the East Nashvillle FB pages asking for workers to help demo. They said it was going to start tomorrow.
  6. I apologize if this is common knowledge or already discussed but has Publix confirmed involvement in this development?
  7. They had a great burger before all the trendy burger joints popped up around town. They always grind the meat right after you order it and it doesn't cost $14.
  8. I'll just set this right here...behind the pay wall.. https://www.bizjournals.com/nashville/news/2017/10/16/psc-buys-scrapyard-property-from-landlord.html
  9. So is there anywhere to see how each state representative voted? I am particular interested in how the representatives that represent the areas that would have been affected (metro Nashville, Knoxville, Memphis, Chattanooga) and the outer laying counties after these locales where taken out of the "mix". I was all for owner occupied. Non owner occupied is an abomination to already established residential neighborhoods. It is troubling that Air BnB and their 7 lobbyist still pushed this just on Nashville when it when it was clear other areas/cities were not going to be affected. To me, the worse thing about non owner occupied houses is not the possibility of large parties or loud people. It is having empty houses sitting around when no one is there. No one starting families, no neighbors, no kids using the local schools. This is not a residential neighborhood, this is a commercial district. I am trying to raise kids in an urban neighborhood, I want them to have friends and I want to have friends and good neighbors. Unfortunately, the fox has been let into the hen house. Money has been smelled. My opinion, this will absolutely wreck neighborhoods like Lockeland Springs, Edgefield, Germantown. The ones closest to downtown. EDIT: At best, another reason for people to move to the suburbs. At worst - They will become fake neighborhoods.
  10. Apologies if this is being discussed on another thread. Looks like the esteemed state senators from Air BnB hotbeds of Huntingdon and Crossville are now just targeting the inner neighborhoods with their overreaching "legislation". East Nashville is already beginning to be eat up with out of state non owner occupied AirBnB's. Lovely it's ok these people can run full businesses next to our houses but not in any of the Republican strongholds. This could be the death knell of any real neighborhood building. It's becoming Disney Land for drunken tourists who want to experience a "an urban" neighborhood. Total BS - http://www.tennessean.com/story/news/politics/2017/05/04/state-intervention-short-term-rentals-now-proposed-just-4-big-cities/101284412/
  11. Besides the Fond Object building, pretty sure the rest of the buildings aren't much more than some cinder blocks cemented to each other. There was rumour earlier that Fond Object was moving into the old Bailey & Cato house but I am not sure how reliable that was. I had heard it from some restaurant employees nearby.
