    SPORTS AND ATHLETIC FACILITIES

    I doubt the existing stadium was built for the added weight of a roof. The retrofitting could be as expensive as starting over. Perhaps you could tear down half the stadium and fast track rebuild that half before the next season and then do the same on the other half. It would be an interesting exercise to see what is possible.
  2. I'm also a member of the LGBT crowd and I see a pretty good representation downtown, everyday, among the tourists. I see no problems with everyone interacting. Most don't really seem to care. I've been to most all the bars and at least at the multi level ones, there is more than just country music being played. You may find a country band on the first floor, but on another, a band playing a mix of genres. I think there will be more types of music as the bars will need to differentiate from each other.
  3. I Personally, I think it has to do with more options for entertaining and interacting with their clients. More restaurants, hotels and music venues than on Music Row.

    I like the clock too, but I've seen too many of these clocks break and never be fixed. Then they're just sad.

    I know that C&B looked at Green Hills (years ago) but the location and timing never worked out. I'd like them too, but not sure where they fit at this point. RH may also have been granted some lease concessions to prevent their ever coming to the actual mall.

    It is a corporate design. They have built several similar stores. I would wish the rest of the mall could be this nice. In walking the rest of the mall yesterday, there are a lot of empty storefronts. Some, like Apple, are remodeling. The new Apple will be huge, but for now is leaving a large blank area in the Mall’s Nordstrom courtyard. Brooks Brothers is also closed for a downsizing/remodel, until next spring. They relocated to a minuscule temp. space.

    Restoration is amazing...raises the bar. Far bigger inside than it looks from the outside. The restaurant is pricy, I mean really pricy.

    My experience, with these parties, is that they end up in a 12 South restaurant, are overly loud, with families at adjoining tables. The boys (and girls) can get pretty drunk and foul mouthed, again, right beside folks with kids. This isn't all of them, but a noticeable number. Downtown it's more expected than in the "quieter" neighborhoods.
  10. I didn’t not know how you get payback on $7 Million leaving the buildings intact.
  11. I see all the points that this is not a net positive for the neighborhood. My point is, this is almost inevitable. I looked at just the 3 blocks that comprise my street. 52% of the homes were sold in the last 5 years, 69% in the last 10. Only 27% have a history of more than 15 years. The demographics have changed. The Tap Room recently renovated, I think for the better, without totally losing its original vibe. You can adapt. That is what I think is sad. Many businesses so cling to their original concept, they die. I’ll also say that 12South becoming a little less hip may not be bad....I wouldn’t have to eat dinner at 4 to stand a chance to get into these places.....
  12. I’m no business whiz, but isn’t business 101, sell what people walking past your business want to buy? Why is change bad? I like the point that this neighborhood has transitioned many times. How far back should we look? 200 years when it was farmland/woods?
  13. I agree with Mark. As a more recent 12South resident, the businesses didn’t speak to the neighbors. Pehaphs 2/3s of the area residents have changed to more suburban types (young families) in the last 5-10years. It may be lamented by some, but it’s where we are. We’ve known it was a matter of time before they left. I went in to Corner Music once. Not a thing in the store I could use. They could have tried to appeal to the tourists and new locals, but didn’t.

    On paper, this may not have looked so bad.....
