  1. Looking south at 5th & Broadway site from 505 CST:
  2. The 1.91-acre lot where Pilgrim Emmanuel Baptist Church is located at 945 S. Douglas Ave. is under contract with an unidentified developer. The site overlooks the curved intersection of Douglas and 10th Ave. South. The project being proposed has 36 residences (20 detached units and eight two-family dwellings). The church structure, which was built in 1940, would be torn down. The congregation bought the property for $2,800 in 1968, and it is purportedly worth $2.8 million now.

  3. The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    Please mark your calendars for Saturday, Jan. 6th, 10 AM to noon, when our Nashville Urban Planet Meet-Up will host Mary Beth Ikard, the Manager of the Mayor's Office for Transportation and Sustainability as our guest. She will be there to present further details about the Mass Transit plan, and field questions on everything from the tunnel to funding. As always, we will meet at La Luna Taqueria at 300 James Robertson Parkway (at the NW corner of JRP and 3rd Ave. North). Plenty of free parking in the rear.

  9. The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    Less than 24 hours after unveiling the ordinance that will place her plan on the ballot, Barry announced that her plan is projected to produce $3.1 billion in local labor income and create 3,850 jobs during each year of construction. That's according to an analysis by Nashville-based environmental consulting firm Wilmot Inc. The analysis also estimated the plan's operations and maintenance requirements will create an additional $548 million in economic impact during the construction phase.
  10. The triangular lot near the Fairgrounds where the Nolensville Rd. split occurs to form 2nd and 4th Avenues South, is up for sale. The 1.67 acre site, which has sat empty for decades, has an asking price of $2.75 million. Cumberland Advisory Group LLC is the owner, and they purchased it in March 2014 for $170,000.

  11. The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    Music City Central station will soon see interior renovations costing just north of $2 million, as it celebrates it's 10th anniversary next year. Improvements will include new restrooms, a customer care center, surfacing of travel lanes, added crosswalks, improved lighting, bus arrival displays, and public art.
  12. The Metro Development and Housing Agency plans to use an unprecedented financing structure to pay for the construction of a $25 million charter school that is the linchpin of its plan to attract mixed-income residents to its redevelopment of the James A. Cayce Homes public housing. MDHA hopes to construct a new building for the Explore charter school, which is run by the Martha O'Bryan Center, a nonprofit that has serviced poor people in East Nashville for decades. Martha O'Bryan, which was tapped for the project without a formal bidding process, will pay for the building with a combination of fundraising and rent payments, with a plan to eventually buy back the facility from MDHA.
