  7. From the Nashville Post: Turner report: Construction in Nashville to remain strong through year Construction activity in the Nashville market should remain healthy throughout 2017, driven in part by office projects either underway or expected to soon start, according to a recently released report from the Nashville office of Turner Construction Co. The first quarter report shows a predicted uptick in work in the public and higher education sectors. In addition, construction of large-scale commercial and industrial projects is forecast to remain strong through 2018. The public sector is particularly active, with examples including the Nashville International Airport expansion and the planned federal courthouse project. The report lists the multi-unit residential sector as the only sector not predicted to grow this year, as demand catches up with an oversupply of apartments and condominiums recently completed or underway. “Nashville’s growth in the past few years has been tremendous to witness and shows no signs of slowing down in the near future,” Matt Nicholson, manager of business development at Turner Construction in Nashville, said in the release. “It’s an exciting time and a great place to be in our business — and we at Turner look forward to continue playing an active role in this historic growth.” Nashville is not alone in experiencing a construction boom, the report notes. Most regions of the country expect construction activity to be either “stable” or “growing” in 2017 and 2018, according to the report. The only areas foreseeing a slowdown in 2018 are Connecticut, Dallas and Houston. The report also shows that the South is outpacing other regions of the country in growth, with a backlog in commercial/industrial construction of 10.7 months. In comparison, the Middle States region has an 8.3-month backlog, followed by the Northeast (7.6-month backlog) and the West (6.6-month backlog). Nationally, the backlog of commercial and institutional construction expanded by nearly 4 percent during 2016.
  8. From the Nashville Post: Germantown townhome project progresses The developer of a 22-unit townhome project eyed for Germantown has landed a permit to a raze a nondescript building on the site. To be called 2nd and Taylor, the project (pictured) will feature 22 three-story townhomes with rooftop decks, with the northwest corner of Taylor and Second to have five and the southwest corner of the intersection to offer 17. The main address is 1329 Second Ave. N. Steven Ezell, president of both Landmark Realty Services and Tri-Mark Builders, is overseeing the project. The permit has a value of $40,000. Nashville-based Allard Ward Architects is designing the town homes.
  9. A walk-though of Rudy's Jazz Room in the Gulch, which apparently will open in about two weeks. They have brought i n a chef from New Orleans who will be on site cooking Cajun/French cuisine. https://www.facebook.com/roy.futureman.wooten/videos/10211454545812812/
  10. A third of the way down.
  11. Only one 4,000-square-foot retail space remains available in the Aertson development. The project's retail components are set to open throughout the coming months, starting with the SunTrust branch in May and followed by Caviar & Bananas and the Kimpton Aertson Hotel in June. These new aerial shots prove why this is a project that we can all be quite proud of. http://www.bizjournals.com/nashville/news/2017/04/26/tenant-lineup-firms-up-as-massive-midtown-project.html
  12. Printers Alley parking garage eyed for possible stacked parking option. With all of the new hotels coming on-line within a block or two of there in the next 18 months (21c Museum, Dream Hotel, The Bobby, Tribute Hotel, Fairlane Hotel) this seems to make sense. http://www.nashvillepost.com/business/development/article/20859473/printers-alley-garage-eyed-for-stacked-parking
  13. The Wildhorse Saloon was an integral part of the revitalization of 2nd Ave. North. The three story warehouse structure at 120 2nd Ave. North that was originally built in the early 1920s (replacing a crumbling structure from the 1820s), had fallen into disuse, with the first floor primarily being a scrap shop. Much of the facade was retained in the 1994 reconstruction into a 66,000 sq. ft, 2,400 capacity entertainment venue. Hundreds of thousands of tourists and concert goers flow through the building annually. It went through another $9 million dollar upgrade in 2016.
