    West End/Mid Town/Music Row/Vandy Projects

    The MBA I was lucky enough to attend vanished a couple of decades ago. The new is all outstanding, but I miss the character of what is gone. By character, I mean everything was really old and decaying......
  2. I used to live just a mile or so south off Old Hickory from here and I have to question how they will handle traffic. Taking a left out of this site will be a challenge.

    Green Hills/Belle Meade Projects

    IMO - There are many more big (and small) box stores in that area that get the shoppers. In Green Hills there aren’t those options. Cool Springs mall is doing well by adding a lot of unique stores and restaurants as well as being viewed as a “safe” place for kids to hang out. Rivergate has no really unique stores, other than Macy’s, Dillard’s and a lot of folks just go in and out of just those stores. I think if there was an easy answer for Rivergate, the owners would be enacting it. The last time I was in Rivergate, and it’s been a year, it was depressing and dark, with no stores, other than Macy’s/Dillard’s that had what I was looking for. Lots of non chain, mom and pops. I don’t pretend to be an expert on Rivergate.... I remember when the old Bellevue Mall reached a “tipping point” where too many chains had left and there was no real reason the go there unless I needed a department store and that was rare. Providence, the new Bellevue Place, maybe Nashville West use the formula of gathering the big/small box stores around an easy parking, rather easy walking environment. I think Rivergate Mall needs to be scrapped clean and reimagined like those. Again, just my opinion.

    I find it a little ironic that the old strip portion of the mall, once viewed as a detriment, is now helping keep it vital. Cool Springs had to demo portions of its mall to create the outdoor spaces that Green Hills already had. From the new Restoration to the new restaurants, these renovated areas should keep people coming to the mall. Crate & Barrel will encourage people to go inside. A far cry from what appears to be a dying Rivergate Mall.

    Nashville International Airport

    I understand that this is the permanent location for these services. I understand that the airport folks loath ride share. I do think there will be many complaints from the convention/hotel folks on the location of their pick up areas. Everyone enters this vast space from the upper most left corner of the posted plan. A 1000 AARP age conventioneers aren't going to like the trek to their hotel/charter buses. What I was trying to say about the short term aspect is that I have a coworker who routinely parked in short term for her numerous single overnight business trips, because it was convenient. She mentioned, with this change, she may switch to Uber, which she uses for longer trips. I don't know if I'd use the new garage to pick up my aunt, with bad knees, when she visits. I used to walk her to the edge of the short term area and then get my car. I might just pick her up curb side, and not park, instead. (yes, that sounds bad) I just wonder if this temporary loss of "convenient" short term parking, could permanently change a good number of folks parking habits.

    In looking at some of the other permits, it seems to be in the addition, first level. They can't sit on the news for long. It gets harder to keep news like this quiet, every day.

    Thanks! The information looks good, I'm surprised that it isn't in the news. This is big. I'm wondering where it will be at the mall. They like exterior access.

    Where do you see this? What is the date? I can't find any reference.

    Nashville International Airport

    First, I'll admit to being a bit whiny in this post. I used the new Uber/Lyft area in the new short term garage Sunday evening. IMO - It is a schlep to get there, especially if you are hauling multiple bags, kids, strollers etc. Not an unreasonable trek, just annoying. The signage leading you there works, although why they can't actually use the terms "Uber/Lyft" is lost on me. "Ride Share App" can be nebulous to some, and the repeated "Ground Transportation" signs are very broad. The phrase "are you sure you know where we're going" was repeatedly heard. Having said all that, the space is large and should work well although reaching it and realizing you still have a bit of a walk to the pick up zones was irksome. We requested our ride half way from the terminal to the new garage and it was there within 3-4 minutes. Fairly quick, no complaint. Advice - don't order your ride as you walk off the plane. There were several Uber/Lyfts waiting for their riders clogging up things. I see a certain irony that at a time when parking revenue is down for airports as people shift to Uber/Lyft, the airport is making things worse for those parking, rather than easier. I know it's short term and better parking will follow, but still....

    It would be nice for them to supply some kind of a floor plan showing the new route to the Uber/Lyft areas. Per my last visit, the new building seems detached (no matter it has a covered path) and a bit of a hike to those toting bags/kids/etc.

    Dialysis Clinics, Inc does appear to own everything from 16th-18th, Church-Hayes. I've heard that Nashville Office Interiors is leaving their space in the spring. Unless the economy tanks, I'll bet they are planning something sooner rather than later. Valuable property to just let sit. They've been really pressuring the remaining businesses to vacate asap - I hear.

    My understanding is that someone is consolidating all the properties along there with the intent of a bigger development, at some point. All the tenants, down the block, are gone as soon as their leases expire.

    Looks like a demolition permit was pulled for the former Chappy's space. (1721 Church)
