  1. Yes, eventually. Most surface parking at Vandy will eventually go away.
  2. I'm not sure if this has already been posted, but saw this (old, but probably mostly still accurate) document today. Obviously a little off on the opening date! https://images1.loopnet.com/d2/xQYIoq793Kqb7OEXg4GytlImtmV37Iwb1NMecjWFJtU/document.pdf
  3. I will also say that even if you get the state to sign off, absent a physical barrier or serious enforcement (which will never happen in this city), you will have cars parked and traveling inside of the "dedicated" bus lane all day long.
  4. I mean, I see people walking a little bit and it stands out because it looks crazy. I'm walking on 8th daily, usually multiple times a day and it is rare that I pass a single other person walking. At night, you see a bachelorette party walking from Sinema or whatnot, but they are isolated and it looks like they got lost and made a mistake. Meanwhile, it I'm on 12th or in the Gulch, it is constantly ped traffic. I'm not staying there are not some people walking, but it is not at all heavy ped traffic and like 95% of people going to businesses on 8th are getting there by car. And regardless of t
  5. Yeah, I think you are mostly correct, but it is not exactly urban. I also think that what we are seeing is also being driven by the fact that 8th is a four lane highway. Even if you put sidewalks in at this point and put parking in the back (which are both great progress - don't get me wrong), the developments all still feel like they are being built for people to drive to. I think it would have been interesting to see what would have happened to some of these developments if the plan to push it to three lanes had gone through. You have a fair amount of density there now, but nobody walks and
  6. Yeah - I'm not going to get in an argument of CDC vs WHO...I just don't think we should be troubled when our leaders are following CDC guidelines, particularly when these are backed up by numerous other well respected medical groups. I think that this is generally a good thing and the patchwork of inconsistent policies across the country sometimes following them and sometimes not have caused a lot of confusion. I have two kids in preschool who have been wearing masks with no problems for nine months and they are just fine. But, agree to disagree.
  7. Why are you troubled? This is recommended by the CDC and American Academy of Pediatrics.
  8. Because they are paying for the on campus housing and it is extraordinarily expensive. This is a partnership with a developer/land lease and the numbers don’t make sense for ultra high end construction. Correct - no parking is included for residents (there may be some spots for the retail).
  9. And in case anyone missed it, the guy who designed the double decker freeway/automatic everything plan turns out to be absolutely bonkers (and put Swope on his payroll): https://www.newschannel5.com/news/newschannel-5-investigates/architectural-visionarys-incredible-claims-riddled-with-incredible-questions-nc5-investigation-finds
  10. This was never actually about recalling him. Why were they collecting email addresses, which are not required? Steve Smith and (probably) Emily Evans are building an email list. The privacy policy on the online petition explicitly states that e-mail addresses will be used to, “fight for fair and transparent governance in Davidson County.” They knew they could not get close, but now they have valuable emails and zip codes.
  11. Let’s give both sites a major height exemption in exchange for a huge Beaman donation into a fund to cap the freeway from Broadway to 12th. Heck, they could even call it the Beaman Greenway and he could be forever memorialized for the rest of history!
  12. Looks like Jersey Mikes backed out. Also, there is a bank going in as a separate building next door: https://www.loopnet.com/Listing/2309-8th-Ave-S-Nashville-TN/13050831/
  13. Will do. Could be a cool adaptive reuse project. Someone mentioned Vintage South being involved, but I have no info. Will try to make it to the meeting.
  14. From the 12South Facebook group: A meeting regarding the reuse of Greater Christ Temple Church at 2400 10th Ave S. will be held THIS TUESDAY, 2/25 from 5:30-7 p.m. at the church. Note the sanctuary of the church is protected under the Waverly-Belmont Neighborhood Conservation Zoning Overlay. This protection does not apply to the addition though.
