    And a ruler - "You can ride this scooter if you're taller than Mickey's hand!"

    I think if you've got a great number available to you that doesn't sound like another number in town, take it. Otherwise, come up with something stately and/or cool, like The Flank Hotel.
  4. Ascend is to the right, behind Bridgestone and a little more to the right. If the main tower is placed on the south end of the lot, you will see most of it to the right of Pinnacle.
  5. Running up Demonbreun this morning I noticed that the gap between the Pinnacle and Bridgestone buildings should be filled in a big way by the Second Ave Partners project.

    The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    If we're going to move past the status quo in transportation problems, we must allow new ideas to get to the market so that sovereign consumer can decide if the new idea will work. "Experts" haven't fixed this yet. Neither have bureaucrats. Get them out of the way and let creative companies discover the "adjacent possible" for us to try out. The adjacent possible is a kind of shadow future, hovering on the edges of the present state of things, a map of all the ways in which the present can reinvent itself. The adjacent possible captures both the limits and the creative potential of change and innovation. An example of the adjacent possible can be seen in the movie Apollo 13:

    Apparently, my attempt at humor was too allusive. Yes, some managers think this way and use number crunchers to back up their decisions. It depends on the corporate and management culture.

    Just saw on the 505 website that they're giving a $15,000 alllowance toward closing costs, furniture and lighting packages. I take this as a small sign that they want to move units, though not desperately.

    They are already in Nashville but under the names of their subsidiaries. Seems like someone on UP recently gave us a list which included some logistics-related companies.

    Some moves in today's competitive landscape - Apple makes a small counterattack by staking a claim in Music City ahead of Amazon Prime Music (you can have logistics, we'll take the music), and tells Amazon that Austin is an Apple city by matching Amazon's 5,000 jobs-in-Nashville number there.

    Are you suggesting that autonomous cars will eliminate our transit problems? Oops, wrong thread.
