  1. It's been a while, but I hope to attend this weekend.

    West End/Mid Town/Music Row/Vandy Projects

    Anyone know what's going on with the Shur-Brite Car Wash at 17th and West End? It's closed and chained off as of this past weekend.
  3. Do we know what will go in the old museum space in the CBD once the new facility opens?
  4. My understanding is that it will not be a chain.
  5. Think signature restaurant for the food piece. It's a sizable portion of the GF but there is still room for multi-story "flagship" retail on the corner towards Broadway, IIRC.

    It is quite literally half the park. Are there any plans for them to hopefully fix the (entire) park up afterward to compensate? This is a major loss of space for such a long time, in such an important park in the area.

    Anyone know what's going on with the construction fencing currently going up around half of Tony Rose Park (between Hawkins St and Music Cir)?
  8. Construction fencing with wrap/images is up on the site.
  9. Thanks for posting this. I live in the Gulch and use 8th every day. As many, including me, have said before, when the only way to get around is via car, all you get is traffic. If you encourage other methods of transportation, people use them. Traffic and roads always suffer from induced demand; i.e. eventually, any lanes you have always fill up. That 8th Ave already has the "no turn lane, so the inner lanes become turn lanes" problem, this is an ideal corridor for a road diet. What kind of city do we want long-term? One where all you can do is drive? Or one where you have a variety of options for getting around? I prefer the latter.

    Green Hills/Belle Meade Projects

    Word from multiple sources is that Crate and Barrel is coming, so stay tuned... From a more macro perspective, high-end malls like Green Hills have nothing to worry about for at least the next couple cycles. There is nowhere else for luxury brands that want to be in Nashville to go.
  11. Yes, exactly - downtown office buildings 20-30 years ago would typically have 1.0-2.0 spaces per 1,000 sf of office; nowadays there's no way you can get away with less than 3.5/1,000 at minimum. The office market demands parking, and your building will be at a disadvantage in leasing if you don't provide it.
  12. This is actually not true. Go to page 80 of the Downtown Code, accessible here: Parking Requirements • No parking is required within the boundary of the DTC.
