  1. Absolutely. I don't use the term "game-changer" lightly, but this project and Nashville Yards seem to fit that category.

    Echoing an earlier thought from another thread: My hunch is that Waffle House Chik-fil-A could build 20 locations in or near the downtown loop and they'd all stay busy. (But I will be curious to see how this particular concept pays off.)

    The Gulch Projects

    I have huge respect for anybody who takes the gamble and goes into business, and I absolutely make it a priority to support local businesses when I can. In fact I walked to that Subway in the Gulch about once a week when I worked down in the area. Loved going into Potbelly and Taziki's, too. That area is so incredibly walkable and active, but I can't even imagine how high rent would be on retail space down there.

    JW Marriott - 385' - 34 Floors

    Maybe I'm showing my age, but I can't get past the fact that so many people wore ballcaps indoors at a $100-per-person high-rise steakhouse.

    W Hotel, 16 stories, 350 rooms

    It was wiped out by this tidal wave posted today under the "Project Thread." It all makes sense now.
  7. My hunch is that Waffle House could build 20 locations in or near the downtown loop and they'd all stay busy. Seems a bit surprising that they haven't already.

    The Gulch Projects

    I'd be a lot more upset about the Gulch losing an affordable food option like Subway if the service in that location had been better. I went a few times during peak hours and the doors were locked because the employee were on break. Other times the staff was just rude. At least Jessie James Decker's store will be something unique to Nashville.

    It's going to be another bar -- I think that's the one that Kid Rock will be involved with.
  11. These prices really surprise me, considering the lack of views AND amenities around that building: Noisy interstate on one side, future high-rise construction project on another, hot chicken joint on another, and a bar/grill and a liquor store on another. Not exactly a primo location. Seems that their primary clientele would be wealthy homebodies who enjoy liquor and occasional chicken.

    I was really hoping that Fifth + Main or Nashville Yards might include an urban Target, but it looks like that won't happen. But I will be happy to see more things downtown that provide daytime options for families or visitors who aren't necessarily looking to drink -- both those complexes will help fill that void. It's such a shame that the Church Street Center came and went about 30 years too soon. A project like that would be a nice addition downtown these days.
  13. Fifth + Broadway and Nashville Yards both are going to fill big, big voids downtown -- physically and from a retail/restaurant/tourism standpoint. Those are huge additions in every possible way.
  14. ^^^ Those reviews are about what I expected. Interesting that one person described the area as "sketchy-ish." Yes, that area is "sketchy-ish" mostly because of the Stadium Inn. It's a matter of time before the influence of places like Top Golf and the new Marriott dual-brand hotel spread toward the Stadium Inn. Surely its days are numbered.

    As a Gannett employee up until October 2017, I can attest that the remaining staff definitely should fit in 2 1/2 floors of the Palmer building. Plus, keep in mind that the Tennessean is shutting down its press operations and will move printing to Knoxville, so the printing/sorting/distribution (which took up a significant space) will move out of Nashville. At last check, the entire print newspaper is designed off-site, advertising is designed off-site, and some of the news staff works off-site.
