    OK it's out in the burbs and we're just at the render stage, but I am loving this. It has a kind of Italian or Hollywood flair to me.
  2. New skyscraper in China features 108-meter-tall waterfall Yet another thing (like high speed rail) the Chinese can build that we can't.

    I hope that area never loses its character, those colorful storefronts and the variety of gritty older buildings is so much more enjoyable to me than the monotonous, sanitized gray and tan of new upscale developments.

    The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    You mean the way Post-War Americans took to debt. But if you didn't get the failure of public transit to keep up service levels you kind of missed the point of the whole article.

    Yeah, I am super disappointed with the location. I hope that design is tentative and something will be built instead that retains the more intimate feeling the street has now. I have always admired those old brick houses.

    I hope those setbacks get some more imaginative landscaping than in the render.

    Even tiny, expensive ones.

    Except when it comes to the Bird scooters, he was down on them in force, suing Bird and confiscating the scooters, which is a much more extreme reaction than any cities I know of (except Honolulu and Miami which banned them outright, which seems totally ignorant).

    The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    It was a 30 year plan in a country where the average person can't think 6 months ahead. I think they should aim for exactly the plan they offered, and just not tell anyone that 10 years from now we'll be starting on light rail. Even just the bus and sidewalk improvements would have been huge.

    That is really tragic . It robs them of the experience of campus life.
  11. And that roof structure looks like it could be the subject of some interesting lighting effects at night. Very visible spot for a lit up crown.

    I can't wait to see what those narrow Sobro streets are like once they're walled in by all these mid-to-high rise buildings. A real transformation of the feel of our city at street level.

    Actually I like it and am extremely jealous.

    Mixed use is ridiculous? Personally I'm fine with that house next to the garage. I could ask for some street activation for the garage, but I don't want to live in a city that's too closely controlled by somebody's banal and narrow-minded aesthetic. Edit: I just re-read this and if it looks like I was calling you banal and narrow-minded, nashville, that's not what I meant. I was thinking about things like signage restrictions which I feel almost always go too far.

    I think it would be a catastrophe, it goes against not only the business model for the bars, but for Nashville. The point isn't to be a captive customer at one bar, it's Broadway as an environment. We just need to expand the pedestrian/bicycle/scooter space there and around the city, and develop more low-key areas for other forms of entertainment throughout downtown.
