  1. Signage complete on north side. Looking south from intersection of KVB and 5th Ave. South:
  2. Congrats to the Vanderbilt Commodores baseball team on winning their 2nd College World Series Championship in the 5 years last night. Manager Tim Corbin has created a program that most consider the best on the collegiate level. I believe there are 14 former players who are currently in major league baseball, the most of any university. There are probably at least 5 on the current roster that should be in the big leagues within the next few years. Anchor Down! : )
  3. Some more info on the Pilot.com move to WeHo. It will be at 2030 Lindell Ave., which is currently a one story warehouse space near the SE corner of the I-65/Wedgewood Ave. exit. No word on if they are converting this space or if they will build something fresh on the site.

  4. The essence of the article is that with many of the past latest job announcements (Pilot.com's 450, Posmates' 1,000, Ernst Young's 600, etc.) Nashville has offered no incentives. so, it makes one wonder how much longer the state will put its own grants and other aid packages on the table as well when recruiting new businesses. "If a company chooses Nashville and the city chooses not to participate, we certainly are not critical of [Metro's] decision. But you're right, it does place an additional burden on the state when a local community chooses not to participate," said Bob Rolfe, commissioner of the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development. "We still look at Nashville as a fabulous recruiting partner. And I look at the chamber … and the mayor as great partners," Rolfe said. "We also recognize the city only has so much bandwidth, and my sense is, going forward, the city is going to save its incentives for the larger projects that have the greatest impact."

  5. The airport has more than doubled its financial impact for the region in just 6 years time. A new report shows the airport was up to $7.1 billion in economic impact in 2018, increased from $3.5 billion in 2012. Aviation activity at BNA generated the following, according to the report 67,432 Tennessee jobs and $2.8 billion in personal income $6 billion of business revenue to firms providing goods and services at the airport and to the local visitor industry $168 million in state and local taxes and $224 million in federal aviation-specific taxes 4.4 million visitors arriving through BNA spent $2.9 billion in the greater Nashville area for food, lodging, entertainment, retail, transportation services, and more. According to its website, BNA is considered the fourth-fastest growing airport among the 50 biggest airports in North America. BNA offers more than 460 flights daily to more than 65 nonstop markets, and is considered the 33rd busiest airport in America.

  6. The studio s were just starting to show up in the late 50s. Music Row was a fairly tiny area at that point. The 60s were when things started to take off. The late 80s to mid 90s was when it reached its apex.
  7. JP Morgan Chase & Co. plan to build a new bank structure at 3811 Hillsboro Pike. Up until recently, the site had been home to SunTrust Bank for decades. GBT Realty has purchased the property last month for $5.1 million, so it would appear they will be involved with the construction and then lease. No word on size or renderings yet. This will be the third JP Morgan Chase & Co. local location announced in less than 6 months (Berry Hill and Inglewood are both u.c. right now).

  8. Speedwagon Enterprises has joined up with Mark McDonald to buy the lot at 1001 16th Ave. South from Belmont Church for $5.1 million. The church had purchased the property in 1979 for $150,000. No further word on the hotel plans as of yet...but that should start to roll out soon.

  9. ^ ^ ^ Thanks, WebberThomas4. For those unable to access that link, here are some of the new renderings for the refurbished Voorhees Building at 700 8th Ave. South . By adding a 5th floor, it will now be 48,000 creative office workspace. They will also add a 2 level garage at the back of the 1.2 acre site:
  10. ^ ^ ^ There is still much to be done with Envision Cayce. Several more phases of NEW buildings like these that have been shown, and then get all the current residents transferred into the new digs before razing the OLD homes and starting on several more phases of construction. I believe there is still about 6-7 more years involved with this roll-out. Once that is all complete and they begin to get a sense for how the logistics are working, then they would start on Napier next, and then Edgehill after that.
  11. Franklin aldermen last night voted to annex 7 acres of land for a new Refuge Center for Counseling. To be located at 4321 Long Lane, the 2 story structure would have 15,000 sq. ft. featuring counseling rooms, play therapy areas, exercise therapy areas and a community waiting room. The land would also provide an open air prayer chapel, picnic pavilion, an outdoor play structure and gardens. Some of the land is on an incline, which will render it unable for development. That land will become open space and hiking trails. No renderings yet.

  12. 516 5th Ave. South (.5 acre) is for sale, but no asking price revealed. The one story nondescript brick structure built in 1960 on the sight covers 4,750 sq. ft. and is currently home to Sprocket Rocket, a pedal tavern business, and a small surface lot. The neighborhood is being developed quickly with 8 hotels either built or planned within a block in any direction. The owners, Stephen Snasu and Shine Stephen, paid $300,000 for the site in 2005. Should fetch a very handsome profit for this now.

  13. St. Thomas Midtown has requested clearance to demolish a rehab facility to build a larger, 40 bed, freestanding facility in partnership with Kindred Health. The proposed 98,000 sq. ft. will have a price tag of $48 million, and would include a two story garage. The article does not notate where the location will be on the large hospital campus. No renderings available yet. More behind the Nashville Pst paywall here: https://www.nashvillepost.com/business/health-care/article/21074937/saint-thomas-proposes-48m-rehab-facility
