    Soccer in Nashville

    I would think that would be the goal of any stadium/arena built today. I think I saw that the Nashville SC would have 17 home games there. The rest of the year the owners/city/vendors want that sweet sweet money to keep flowing in so they will schedule as many things as they can. Until the neighborhood starts to complain. Then there will be a hard stop like Ascend. Or something really crappy like losing Soulshine will happen.

    They've definitely made some interesting stadiums. Just perusing their "stadia" page. Kansas City's MLS field. One of the pictures is the stadium converted for a concert, which is nice. Baylor's Stadium (minus) the upper deck is nice. I like the open ended design with the brick and a big screen. Metricon Stadium, Queensland. Super multi-use. Don't really care of the circle but the roof is unique. University of Minnesota's college football stadium. Obviously way bigger than we are looking at. But look at this curve, I like it.

    Repurposed/revitalized historical buildings in Nashville

    That building will always hold a special place in my heart, besides it being where I spent most of my 20s. It's where I meet my wife for the first time!

    The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    I have no idea about the costs that's for sure. It was mostly posted because it was in a tweet as I was half following along with the republican debate. And Diane Black didn't like the transit plan because it costs too much but she's ok with more money being spent on roads. Side Note: urbanplanet is loading incredibly slow for me, like minutes to load, it just start at the end of last week and I can't figure it out. It's the only site that's having the problem. I haven't changed anything browser wise, anybody else having problems??

    And this story on more interstates (lanes) and the costs that would entail.

    Interesting graphic. No more info on where the numbers come from though. Some of the replies ask some good questions.

  9. I don't hate it at all. I do wonder what the rest of the landscaping will look like, reminds me of a CIA black site or something like that. Very Bourne.

    Shane Smiley just air quoted "master plan" this is the guy who got into a shoving match. Rick Williams says he hopes they listen to the citizens of Nashville. Eh hm, you aren't a citizen of Davidson county, haha. The lady with the Christmas village laying down the law, says she loves that they have worked with her and her vendors, and doesn't want people talking for their group.

    "The flow of bicycle traffic improved greatly after Nørrebrogade installed the ‘green wave’, which changed traffic lights to favour cyclists. Above is before; below is after" That quote is from the last chart on the page. I can't even imagine the uproar here if the city did that. "I'm supposed to wait for people on bicycles?! I'm in a car, I will just run them over because they are in MY way!" Copenhagen is a very different city obviously but more ways to move people around besides cars should be our goal. "20th Century: How many CARS can we move down the street?" "21st Century: How many PEOPLE can we move down the street?"

    Don’t have time to watch this tonight. But could be interesting.

    I mean we are on a Nashville development board. So we are probably going to lean waaaaay more Nashville over anyone else.

    A well thought out and rational comment. *checks for agenda* Just kidding, just kidding. CLAP CLAP CLAP!!! It took hell to make this happen. And it’s good for everyone. I’m not particularly fond of the 10 acres but damn, to make all this other stuff happen. It’s amazing!
