  1. Interesting for sure. The scaffolding appears to be right where each of the existing stanchions are, so this is still pretty encouraging. Not sure what else the scaffolding would be for other than prepping for the next level of the crown. By the way, thanks for the pics Mark!
  2. Sure looks like stanchions to me. Never really made sense where they were gonna put the sign with that small of a crown. Keeping fingers crossed!
  3. Drove by downtown this morning and I couldn't tell for sure cause I was so far away, but it looked like there were putting up more stanchions on top. Can anyone confirm?
  4. My guess for the LED lights being so dim is due to the Encore tower next door. They probably anticipated a lot of whining from the residents if they were too bright.
  5. What Chris posted from wiki clearly says 649 rooms + 24 suites. 649+24 equals 673 rooms. Don't know where the face palm emoji is but if there was one I'd add it in here.
  6. I've come out of retirement just to say the L&C tower is just about the ugliest building in Nashville. I can only hope that sometime in the future something is built that will completely block it out. It's ugly as sin just like the Keeble building was and that's why nobody other then a select few here on this forum cares that it's being put out of its misery. There are countless of beautiful buildings built around the country in its time, the L&C is not one of them. NOTHING about that tower says.....wow, now thats great architecture right there. Lol! If this building was in NYC it would have been demolished a long time ago. End rant....bottoms up guys....see ya!
  7. 1212 was $80M. this HTML class. Value is http://www.bizjourna The Sobro is $91M. this HTML class. Value is http://www.tennessea
  8. ^Agreed. I never thought I'd say this, but it's just too tall. At least for that location anyway. 150'-200' tops should all that be allowed there IMO. I don't like how it will block out the SoBro, Encore and Bridgestone towers. The office tower itself would have been fine. Other than that it looks very boring, bland, cheap...you name it. I'm very disappointed with this tower to say the least. Going back into hibernation now...Peace!
  9. Well dang, I didn't know they took the towers down. When did this happen?
  10. Nice shot Vrtigo! Can't wait to see Paramount and the old convention development take shape. I know I've said it a bunch of times, but man I really hate that ugly communications building (or whatever it is) on 2nd Ave. I wish that thing would just go away lol. The red building in the middle of this pic without any windows and has those stupid cones atop of the radio towers is the one I'm referring to. It would be nice to see that converted to condos or apartments or something.
  11. Nashville halts future development on famed Music Row http://www.bizjournals.com/nashville/blog/real-estate/2015/02/nashville-halts-future-development-on-music-row.html ^I'm sorry but that's a bit ridiculous.
  12. How bout some pics from your office in the AT&T building? It would be nice to see the progress of projects like the Amphitheater, SoBro and Bridgestone with such a great vantage point.
  13. MDHA targets late-summer start for Jefferson Street apartments
  14. I saw someone else mention in another thread that it was for the Cadence maybe.
  15. Posted by FromParkAveToTN on 30 September 2014 - 02:26 PM I get that Nashville makes a ton of money on the country music industry, but I really wish they would incorporate more genres of music in the downtown scene i.e., Jazz, reggae, hip hop, etc. I would LOVE to go to a nice jazz spot after work since I work in the AT&T building and have a nice dinner and a cocktail, and chill until the traffic dies down. Posted by FromParkAveToTN on 30 January 2014 - 11:30 PM I work downtown now in the AT&T building and as I was leaving downtown, I noticed a portion of the parking lot next to the Encore has been ripped up. Has the SoBro officially broken ground? Posted by FromParkAveToTN on 21 November 2014 - 03:47 PM Good... Now they can give Mrs. Ingram some of her money back. I love Mrs. Ingram. She's the one that moved me to Nashville. I no longer work for her, but she's a wonderful person. I now work for a Law Firm in the AT&T tower. Posted by FromParkAveToTN on 30 October 2014 - 04:08 PM I work in the AT&T tower so I'll find a way to knock it off the building if they put it up. Posted by FromParkAveToTN on 18 December 2014 - 04:09 PM Sitting in my office (in the AT&T building) looking at the new Amphitheater going up on the old Thermal Plant site. That stage is huge. Will there be enough room for people to sit? Posted by FromParkAveToTN on 23 October 2014 - 04:13 PM I work in the AT&T building and looking out at the Gulch, I see two cranes. One is taller than the other. Are there two buildings under construction or just the one right now? Posted by FromParkAveToTN on 05 September 2014 - 02:08 PM Yes, the trucks are stopping me every morning now. I'm going to have to find a new route in the mornings on my way to my office in the AT&T building. Posted by FromParkAveToTN on 28 May 2014 - 09:00 AM I work in the AT&T (Batman) building and my office is on the side where I will be able to see this baby slowly rise (no pun intended). Posted by FromParkAveToTN on 30 July 2014 - 08:56 AM Yes sir... I saw that on my way into the office this morning. My office is in the AT&T building on side overlooking the Sobro site. The downside is, I can't concentrate on work this morning because of this. LOL!!!! Posted by FromParkAveToTN on 03 October 2014 - 02:54 PM Great news about Sheet Music; however, are there any conversations going on about improving the infrastructure? I work downtown in the AT&T tower and live in Green Hills and It is literally taking me over an hour to get to my office in the mornings and an hour or more to get home. Posted by FromParkAveToTN on 16 June 2014 - 03:53 PM On my drive into the office (AT&T building) this morning, I noticed some guys on the SOBRO site using paint to mark off the existing parking lot. Just thought I'd share. Not sure if it means anything is happening or not. Posted by FromParkAveToTN on 22 July 2014 - 11:21 AM I can start looking again. My office is in the AT&T building and on the side where I can look at the construction progress everyday. Twerking with Excitement! Posted by FromParkAveToTN on 30 July 2014 - 08:18 AM Just now getting into the office (AT&T building) and drove by the SoBro site just a few minutes ago. Concrete barriers are up and the lot it closed. They were also removing the parking lot pay station. Posted by FromParkAveToTN on 11 November 2014 - 01:42 PM I work in the AT&T building and I can see the groundbreaking tent setup on the Bridgestone site. WOW! I was caught off guard by this announcement. Wasn't expecting things to move this quickly. I'm pretty sure we're all well aware by now that you work in the AT&T building....
  16. I find it hard to believe they're going to tear town that tower. That's way beyond the scale of knocking down a few houses. Are you sure the UA tower is in the footprint? If it is, that's great, but I just don't see a developer spending that kind of coin to demo that tower for a medium sized apartment complex. That's quite a project in itself that would probably take months (if not longer) and millions of dollars.
  17. There's nothing really significant about these couple houses. As for the apartments that will replace them, I think the design looks great.
  18. Can't say for certain, but I would assume they would just build around it. There really isn't anywhere else to set up a tower crane on the site.
  19. ^Here you go. Looking straight down at the SoBro from the site plan, you can see how the tower portion fits in between the diner and the listing room, and the parking garage structure behind it. Here you can see the diner on the lower right. In this rendering, you can see the listening room to the lower left. The large white block behind that is the SoBro's parking garage, and obviously the big gray box is the Encore. This rendering would be the view from the Encore.
  20. Ooh la la! I like it! Very nice indeed... Not as tall as I hoped, but I'll definitely take it.
  21. 27-unit luxury condo project planned near Centennial Park http://www.tennessean.com/story/money/real-estate/2015/01/19/unit-luxury-condo-project-planned-near-centennial-park/22001795/ Prices will range from $600K to $2.15M...
