  1. Nashville International Airport

    Hahaha. Sort of a mashup of Chet Atkins Place and Baker St.
  2. It looks great! I also noticed this week the beautiful exterior stonework on the front of the Holston is being cleaned. Some knucklehead a while back had applied gray paint on the stonework across the front. I've been patiently waiting/hoping the crews would be able to successfully remove it and it looks like they have. This little hotel is really going to shine. I'm wondering if there is any opportunity for the Holston to somehow interact with 5th & Broad, since it will back up to the new construction.
  3. The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    Thanks, Rookzie. I always appreciate your insights on transit matters, so help me, as a casual observer, appreciate what advantages the overhead line track-less trolleys you mention have over, say, all electric buses like MTA's Music City Circuit. Range, I expect is one big issue. The lithium ion MTA buses can go 26 miles per charge. The "fast fill" charging stations like at Riverfront Park and Bicentennial Mall can deliver a full charge in 10 minutes, but still that's 10 minutes of passengers sitting there waiting for a charge. You mention steep terrain as an advantage for the overhead electric systems, which I expect would limit the range of a fully loaded EV bus on hilly routes. All things being equal, I think I would prefer a "wireless" EV fleet to the substantial installation expense and visual clutter of an overhead line system.
  4. Repurposed/revitalized historical buildings in Nashville

    It's next door to Rock Bottom - between Rock Bottom and Acme. It's actually called The National Underground. Started by Gavin Degraw.
  5. Design is a total fail. I'm hoping this somehow falls through.
  6. The name is far more elegant than the product.
  7. Project Thread/New Construction/Photo du jour/Const. CAMs

    it was lit tonight
  8. Federal Courthouse

    And not pink anymore.
  9. 805 Lea, 35 stories, residential, retail

    Mixed use - residential and retail. The Post article does not list the developer. Another image from the Post.
  10. Project Thread/New Construction/Photo du jour/Const. CAMs

    Oh, if only 6th Ave. still connected from Broadway to Commerce. Note the block of storefronts fronting Broadway between 5th and 6th (where the old convention center is currently being cleared for 5th and Broad).
  11. LifeWay new HQ, Capitol View, 10 stories, 250,000 sq. ft.

    A great example of how to design a new building that is an aesthetic fit with its surroundings. In this case, in an area of red brick, turn of the century industrial buildings. I really like the way this one turned out.
  12. MSA South - Williamson & Rutherford Counties

    I didn’t know there was any talk of moving it. The festival owns the property.
  13. Cambria Suites Hotel|255 Room|19 Stories|200 feet

    Walking past the Cambria the other day, the red LED lights appeared to be 10 or 12 ft sections of LED rope lights connected together. Like the kind you would buy in the Christmas display at Home Depot. I might have assumed the use of a more advanced LED system to light a hotel tower and I may be wrong about what they've used on the Cambria, but that's what it looked like to me.
  14. If this is the correct orientation, the condos would face the alley and a parking lot that will ultimately be developed, most likely to the full allotted height of 10 stories. The condo balconies would be looking directly over the alley at the back side of that development. I'm with Smeagol that this doesn't seem to have been thought through.
  15. CBD/SoBro/RutledgeHill/Rolling Mill Hill Projects

    Does anyone know what is going into the building that was formerly home to the Sports Page restaurant on Union St.? The interior has been gutted and it looks like a roof top addition is being added. The renovations started many months ago and are proceeding at a snail's pace.
