    Bridgestone Arena: further development of property

    Ideally, there wouldn't be empty seats for people to move down to. That comes from putting a better product on the field. Otherwise, ushers should be checking patrons tickets as they come into the section. I haven't been to Nissan is several years but I've been to a dozen other major league sporting events and every game I've been to has ushers at each section entrance checking tickets. Better training for ushers would be cheaper than building a fence. Also, I may be mistaken, but I believe fencing off sections is against NFL Policy.
  2. I went to a food hall (Grand Central Market) in DTLA this past Sunday and it was packed to the brim with visitors. I was surprised it was so busy given that I walked past maybe 50 pedestrians on my 12 block walk from my hotel. There were probably about 20 restaurants with a large variety of offerings. I waited in line for 45 minutes to get an egg sandwich. I think the food hall in this development is going to be a resounding success given it's location on Broadway. Side note, there are 4 food halls opening in San Diego by the end of this year, so it will be interesting to see how they perform in different areas of town.
  3. Kind of reminds me of Atlantic Station in Atlanta. There aren't any actual below grade roads, but there is a huge parking garage beneath the majority of the development with free parking for the first hour.
  4. When Hard Rock (then Sun Life) Stadium in Miami was in need of renovation, the city/county rejected using tax dollars for renovations. The Dolphins were in no danger of leaving South Florida, but the NFL told Miami they were unlikely to host another Super Bowl in their current stadium. That, plus fickle attendance for a sorry a-- team (I'm a Fins fan) forced owner Stephen Ross's hand. He made a deal with the county that he would pay for the $800 million renovation himself. He's one of the richest owners in the sport and, iirc, donated $800 million in two $400 million payments to the University of Michigan. In exchange for paying for the renovations, Dade County will pay Ross millions in tax dollars for events that the Stadium gets as a result of the renovations. Those events include World Cup games, World Cup Final, Superbowl, College Football playoff or Championship game, NCAA Final Four (with special tarps over the roof), International soccer matches, and other events that reach certain attendance marks. I can't remember the specifics, but I believe that Ross would be due the full $800 million he invested if South Florida got 1 of each event that was listed in the agreement. This could be an option to explore when it comes time for the Titans to build a new stadium.

    JW Marriott - 385' - 34 Floors

    That is one of my favorite skyscrapers. There is also a Ritz Carlton in the same building that takes up the higher floors in the building.

    JW Marriott - 385' - 34 Floors

    Looks like it'll be tough to read if you're driving through town and do not know that it's a JW Marriott.

    MSA South - Williamson & Rutherford Counties

    New Interchange in Spring Hill FHA approved an interchange at Buckner Rd. and Interstate 65 in Spring Hill. This is desperately needed in that area and should significantly reduce traffic on US 31 and Lewisburg Pike south of Franklin. Work will commence within 8 years.
  10. I went to a food hall in Florence, Italy that was next to a bustling street market multiple times while visiting the city. I think it will be a great addition to Nashville. It will be nice to walk in, grab a beer at one place, then walk around the hall and decide what to eat between the numerous offerings. It would also be nice for a visiting family or large group of friends to sit and eat in one place when everyone wants something different. It will also be a great place for visitors who aren't mobile, or do not know how to utilize ride sharing services to try different types of "Nashville" cuisine without have to worry about traveling all over town.
  11. It would be cool if they would put one of those new Taco Bell Cantina on the first floor. Would be a good location for one, considering there would have previously been a Taco Bell on the site.
