  1. ^ I was just wondering about that the other day. I still don't know how that's going to work (a grocery store...at that intersection...in that lot), but it will be nice to have a Publix within walking distance.
  2. Greer Stadium site redevelopment

    I am all for this...we need more green space. Kudos to all who made this happen.
  3. ^ If they can be incorporated into these urban projects, I'd like them to stick around in some form. As I said earlier in this thread, sometimes I want Taco Bell over an overpriced street taco.
  4. Nashville Bits and Pieces

    She may no longer be the leader, but the investigations are still ongoing: https://www.bizjournals.com/nashville/news/2018/03/06/tbi-affair-investigation-active-and-ongoing.html
  5. If Memphis can bring its carousel back to life, so can Nashville: https://www.coaster101.com/2017/12/09/former-libertyland-1923-dentzel-carousel-reopens-memphis/
  6. That smoke stack is the most historical thing in this picture.

    ^ Oh they'd take more than that. We'd be nAmazon.
  8. JW Marriott - 385' - 34 Floors

    Ok, at least it’s purposeful. I’m still not a fan. Maybe it will grow on me.
  9. Cresting this hill on 8th used to be so breathtaking as the skyline came into view. Now this is what greets you...
  10. JW Marriott - 385' - 34 Floors

    Either the letters aren't finished or this is a huge oversight. The "Marriott" appears to be a Helvetica-like san serif font while the "JW" is the appropriate serif font as seen in the logo below. Below is Grand Rapids' JWM sign for comparison. Even the logo on the actual hotel website doesn't match: I know this is the pretentious designer in me coming out, but unless they're changing the chain's logo, I just don't see any logic behind this. Will the average joe notice? Of course not. But it makes no sense.
  11. ^ I sure hope so. It totally negates the attractiveness of the opposite side of the building.
  12. JW Marriott - 385' - 34 Floors

    Any chance they'll put something around the edge at the top a la the SoBro? Seems like such a small space between the letters and the top of the crown.
  13. I like a mix of new and old. That's part of the reason why I love Chicago so much. The buildings of past architectural eras make the more modern buildings stand out even more. They help tell the city's story.
  14. I give this a 1% chance of happening, but it's interesting to imagine nonetheless: 100 N. Main owner plans massive project with Loews hotel, apartments https://www.bizjournals.com/memphis/news/2018/02/08/breaking-100-n-main-owner-plans-massive-project.html
