    The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    I'm not sure having a recognizable logo makes that much of a difference. There's only one organization running transit buses around Nashville. When my firm works with transit agencies (admittedly, of which branding is an afterthought in the planning process), the emphasis is towards finding a consistent motif. For example, you may want to paint all of your buses a single, bright color, and continue that through bus stop infrastructure, route maps, etc. It can be a stripe, pattern, whatever, it just needs to be something you could pick out of your peripheral vision. You don't necessarily get that with just a logo. (As an aside, it would be my preference if the FHWA, via the MUTCD, designated a single sign color for public transit. Light blue and coral are left as available colors. They did this a few years ago with purple being reserved for tolling facilities, with many tolling companies such as E-ZPass changing their branding to suit, and it's made a world of difference. In fact my first thought in seeing the WeGo branding was that it was a highway tolling company.) Anyway, maybe MTA wants to own the color purple in Nashville, I don't know. But if it's just going to be a logo change, especially if they continue to run branded services like the Music City Circuit, then it's not going to provide an improvement. I will however give them tons of credit for managing not to make a single music reference in their branding package.
  2. That block is going to be weird if/when the Joseph is completed, those three hotels will basically have a giant courtyard in the middle on top of the parking garages.

    Nashville food and beverage scene

    It's kind of a double whammy, because not only was it in her food, it's not vegan either

    MSA South - Williamson & Rutherford Counties

    The easiest way to delineate the exact limits would be to take a door-to-door survey of residents in the area and map how angry they get when you use the term "Brentioch".
  5. They are moving A/C and electrical units to the roof today, I can't imagine this crane stays up much longer.

    This is the crux of the issue. You can't use Nashville's current brand recognition as a gauge because it's an outlier, it will inevitably decrease once the next It Cities come around.

    Project Thread/New Construction/Photo du jour/Const. CAMs

    I'm pretty sure (but not positive) it's a private residence. No advertising signage on 96 or anything, I imagine people have driven by it a hundred times without noticing it. I wouldn't have known it was where it was if not for wandering around on Google Earth one day. My point about the Parthenon is that I don't suppose there's any reason the buildings couldn't be reconstructed to original specs, either at Centennial Park or elsewhere. They would be just as historic as the Parthenon is, the original in Athens notwithstanding.

    The Parthenon wasn't built to be permanent, it was reconstructed in the 1920s. The Knights of Pythias Pavilion is also still standing, it's just in Franklin.

    As much as I want to keep the fire burnin', I can't fight this feeling that these guys are gonna take it on the run.
  10. For some reason I'm reminded of the urban legend that sorority houses were once prohibited on UT's campus because, per language in the state code, they would be classified as brothels.

    Soccer in Nashville

    I mean I get the first two but the NBA Finals has been the same two teams for like the past twelve years.

    Nashville B-cycle, but it is managed by the Nashville Downtown Partnership. Not purely private. Ofo is a private bikeshare service, but they are limited to the Vanderbilt area at the moment.

    The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    TDOT originally wanted to add the section from State Route 109 to State Route Interstate 840 to the design-build widening from State Route 171 to State Route 109 in 2010. It was supposed to be constructed immediately after the D/B job wrapped up, but was pushed for budget issues. However, you'll be happy to know that funding from the IMPROVE Act is allowing it to go to construction in FY 19.
