    More Accolades for Nashville

    Looks like a Predators outdoor game at either Nissan Stadium or Vanderbilt's Dudley Stadium---or possibly even the new MLS stadium---is in the works for the next 2 to 3 years. Lots more U.S. and Canadian coverage when it occurs. My guess is it would be against either the Blues or the Blackhawks.
  5. A few more views of the site before demo begins in near future. It truly is a small footprint for a 20 story tower. Looking SW from intersection of 11th Ave. North and Grundy St: Looking NW from intersection of Porter St. and 11th Ave. North:

  9. Plans to redevelop Fond Object Records in East Nashville's Riverside Village into a vintage motorcycle shop and a wood-fired pizza restaurant have been withdrawn, following community opposition. Corner Partnership pulled back its request – up for Metro Planning Commission consideration this week – to redevelop the record shop and several other stores at the corner of McGavock Pike and Riverside Drive. The developer had also planned to build 33 apartments in six buildings behind the short, street-facing retail strip anchored by the record shop. The intension was to keep the commercial buildings in place with some upgrades and new tenants – including replacing Fond Object with Moto Moda, the pizza and motorcycle business envisioned by the owners of Barista Parlor. The record shop, which had another downtown location, could have moved into a smaller, less expensive storefront in the strip. But the petition rejected the development entirely, arguing it would "cut down a bunch of mature trees, build a massive apartment complex with six 2 & 3 story buildings ... and replace our beloved Fond Object. The special character and feel of our neighborhood should be protected from this kind of large scale, intrusive development." The negative community response prompted Corner Partnership to cancel the plans, and revert to the site's existing zoning rules that don't require Planning Commission approval. Those allow for a 4-story mixed-use building on the corner, in place of the one-story retail strip. The fourth story, however, must be set back to appear less imposing.
