  1. The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    Beaman is getting out of his notax4tracks role as treasurer because he is a car dealer and his connections to the Koch brothers are hurting their message. Still going to raise money for them.
  2. https://www.nashvillepost.com/business/development/article/20992969/notes-wehoarea-building-hits-market-for-18m Building for sale. It’s almost done. Should be interesting what it turns into.
  3. The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    I got through about 5 of the reasons before my eyes rolled out of my head and moved to a new state.
  4. The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    @nashville_bound Where does the 9 billion dollar number come from that you keep quoting? The only thing I read is that, the $9 billion comes from counting maintenance for the life of a system all at once.
  5. The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    I saw a Yes and a No and that was on Franklin Pike on the way to Brentwood. The Yes surprised me, especially on that road.
  6. The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    I can't read the article so someone explain to me if I'm wrong BUT... I thought the point of the plan is that it would morph and change as the city needed?
  7. The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    Can I ask you how much you think this will impact local residents, cost wise?
  8. The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    I think all that rain/snow, then ridiculously cold temperatures hit 440 especially hard. It's concrete too, I remember back in 2010ish? When they went through and sanded the whole thing flat, I lived right off the 21st Ave exit and it was loud and dusty for a few nights.

    I'd definitely say they are negative, anytime the Mayor posts anything now, it's all negative about her affair. It's crazy, I know trolls exist but some of the things these people are saying is mind blowing. Yeah I wonder about the people who actually live in Davidson county and who can/will vote, there was a person on Nextdoor once that was arguing about against changing 8th Ave S from 4 lanes. Their biggest argument was that they didn't want their commute to Brentwood slowed down, zero cares about the people that live here. "I JUST WANT TO GET HOME FASTER!" was their entire argument, it was very frustrating. Especially considering all the data that is/was being shown.

    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-02-13/uber-sales-reach-7-5-billion-in-2017-despite-persistent-turmoil "Despite a turbulent year for the ride-hailing company, sales were $7.5 billion. But the company also posted a substantial loss of $4.5 billion. There are few historical precedents for the scale of its loss." Good lord.

    Based on the amount of bad information out there now I'd say closer to 40% If the transit plan people get some good ads out there across all media about the actual costs, then I'd put it closer to 60%. I've started to see yard signs and ads on twitter/insta but I assume that's based on who I'm following.
  12. Soccer in Nashville

    They've been working in the southeast corner for a few weeks but the rain has not be super helpful. When I drove by yesterday the area had been transformed into a medium sized muddy lake, haha. I can't tell if they are trying to raise the area a few feet to avoid flooding in the future or not, seeing the site plans would be interesting.
  13. Wooden Skyscrapers

    Thought this was pretty interesting.
  14. CBD/SoBro/RutledgeHill/Rolling Mill Hill Projects

    Now this is a chunk of land. https://www.nashvillepost.com/business/development/article/20991984/large-site-located-near-downtown-listed-for-30m Kinda not very accessible though. Only get to it from Hermitage. If a non-interstate bridge was ever made on the southside down there it would become a lot more interesting I think.
