  1. So much schlock in this one frame. Ugly siding. Asphalt paving right up to the front wall. Cheap metal fire escape on the front facade. Tiny windows and doors in a sea of stucco. And what in god's name is going on with the tiny little stockade fence?

    More Accolades for Nashville

    I will say the Bridgestone staff are the friendliest bunch of people you will encounter anywhere.
  3. Did you "buy one pair and get 2 pair free"? I never understood how that "deal" makes sense. Someone's coming out on the short end and I don't think it's the store.
  4. Mainland converting The Chelsea to condos. Another group of long-term renters likely to be living next to Airbnbs.

    Pub grub, nothing fancy. I had the chicken quesadilla and it was ok. Similar to the other Corner Pubs in that respect. But they do have an impressive beer list with about 40 taps.

    Yes. Ate there Sunday night. The LED wall is impressive! The interior space is just huge.

    This area between Church and Charlotte is screaming for redevelopment. On one of my runs earlier this year, I passed by an alley littered with crack needles very near this intersection. I also noticed the graffitied retail building was burned out.

    The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    Wowza. This guy is lucky to live to tell about it. To his credit, though, he was not riding on the sidewalk, just forgot about red lights. From what I observe on a daily basis, we will be seeing a lot more of this sort of thing.

    There is actually quite a bit of pedestrian traffic in the vicinity now, much more than when I first started working downtown years ago. And it’s only increasing with all the new hotels on 4th. The people go where there are things to do, so 4th, 5th, 6th, Church, Union, the Arcade have heavy traffic every weekday. The sidewalks surrounding the Polk/TPAC block are dead because there is zero street activation, same with Deaderick St. But look what happens to that area every Thursday when the food trucks line up on Deaderick. Suddenly, it’s an outdoor festival, even on cold days like it was today. Kiosks with street food, small artisan shops and some cafe tables would draw people to the area I promise you.
  11. Comparing the rendering with the current photo makes me think the facade detailing is not quite finished. The unpainted base columns and the current absence of ornamentation on the entablature above them suggest there is more work to be done. It's going to look amazing when complete.

    Margaritaville Hotel,12 stories, 145 ft., 215 rooms

    Wow. I had no idea. I want one. Trachycarpus fortunei Tennessee Form (Tennessee Windmill Palm) Thanks to palm collector Will Taylor of Athens, Tennessee, for sharing seed of a Trachycarpus fortunei that has been growing and fruiting for years at his home in Zone 7a, between Knoxville and Chattanooga, Tennessee. Will originally purchased these from a local nursery in 1996, and they have endured -2 degrees F, unprotected in the ground. (Hardiness Zone 7b-10)
  13. Agree it seems like a significant step up for Drury. Being a fellow St Louisan, you've no doubt seen their hotels all over there. With the exception of the 3 downtown properties (Union Station, Convention Center and the Arch) where Drury renovated magnificent old buildings, most of their hotels are squarely in the Hampton Inn variety. I haven't seen the KC hotel.
