    As far as I know Hohenwald, Lake county, Perry County doesn't have a state income tax, high property tax, state or city minimum wage or "excess regulation" but somehow I don't see the same rate of development as in Nashville.

    Wired has an interesting article on automation in the construction industry, which is lagging for a number of reasons. We really need to do something about construction costs, overruns etc. It seems to cost much more to build large projects here than in other countries (particularly subways/light rail). According to the article, where robots come into their own in construction is in highly complex projects and ones that keep changing. This suggests that we could retain some interesting features now being tossed out because of costs. Frankly I'm surprised that 3D printing hasn't already made ornamentation extremely cheap, or maybe people are just taught anti-ornamentation dogma in architect schools. A 3D printer ought to be able to toss out a Beaux Arts facade pretty effortlessly.

    From that list my choice would be tilia cordata (for the flowers/fragrance). One tree I'd like to see more of is Stewartia pseudocamellia, do you know where any of these are being used locally and how they're working out?

    Tickville? Unless there's a more opportunistic parasite that comes to mind.

    It is definitely possible to produce much more affordable housing, developers in a sense are spoiled, used to the high returns you can get by selling to affluent consumers and ignoring the majority, enlisting local government support-who wants a bunch of poor people housing in their community? (and the magic formula "free market" can always be invoked when anyone questions the results, although it's obviously anything but a free market). That said, what is an appropriate size for an apartment/house needs to be a bit more flexible. 450 sq feet might seem pretty big in parts of Tokyo, and they don't seem to have the housing affordability crisis we have. Houses used to be on average a lot smaller in this country. I say let's build little houses. I for one can't afford what's marketed as normal in this country now.
  6. wow, what exactly was nasty? It's a joke. We've all been disappointed. Let's don't be bitter.
  7. At last a true Swimming Pool of Death! They better get going on this thing before the economy craters.

    ^this looks like my kind of restaurant
  9. I hope they actually put a full size tree in the plaza like in the render. There's plenty of room for one.

    Wow, seen in scale with the building it makes quite a statement.
  11. Hey man! I might not be on the same political spectrum as you, but I support you and your statements about politics and race! Please don't feel down because others think differently! I have felt that way and it's a waist of time! Don't let it depress you like I've let it depress me!

  12. Ben Stein is a racist creep. Why do you continually inject this political crap into the board?

    That whole section of DT is like that. If there were a lot of street traffic little kiosks would work for selling things like crepes and tacos, but it's hard to imagine anything that size that would serve to lure new people to the area which seems pretty barren a lot of the time. I'm not downtown during weekdays so maybe it's different then.
