    One can dream OKAY!!! Jeez. Just wishful thinking..... I dream of a day where Nashvillians can play "Where's the Batman" like people do "Where's Waldo"

    The units in 505 are all like mazes; tiny entrance hallways which lead to tiny kitchens, which connect to tiny living rooms, which have odd bedroom door placements opening in odd ways to the bedrooms, and then to contorted bathrooms. And this is in every type of unit; one bed, two bed, even the penthouse layouts are bizarre.

    I may have gotten a bit carried away, sorry.....

    The only lighting that would improve those hideous poles is extremely bright lighting that faces outward, blinding every driver, pedestrian, and passer-by so that they couldn't see the dingy poles. However, as I've posted before, in an A.M. hangover haze/moment of weakness, I drove up KVB one morning and thought they looked quite nice in front of the Westin, distracting the viewers' eye from the disgusting behemoth behind them.
  5. I was under the impression that Giarratana was going to buy adjacent lots. Is this no longer the case? The lot for this tower ONLY includes the Church street park? It seems odd for Tony not to buy the nondescript brick building and small parking lot behind the park.

    That walk-in clinic is very interesting inside. They kept all brick walls and older surfaces uncovered. It feels like a doctors office in a less-glamorous Victorian-era London, but it's still pretty cool. It made me feel like I was dying of cholera or Spanish Flu instead of just the regular flu.

    I love seeing that when my Roku is paused!

    Great idea. Lets build a big wall with no street activation to make sure that block STAYS a dead zone.
  9. This is going to be very useful to 12th South. A good nearby place to get the essentials. I walked in the other day thinking it was open, the sliding doors opened and all the workers stared at me like I was crazy.

    Is it technically illegal to check ID's at these public hearing and only allow Davidson residents in? I recall a post I made some time ago that caused quite a debate. I said "I would love to see the demographics about these people." and many took that to mean I was bad-mouthing car-racing fans, or suggesting they were all overweight rednecks, but the truth was I meant that I would love to learn that all these Anti-MLS people who wanted to preserve the flea-market and racetrack weren't even from this city.

    That Renaissance building tho! Ugh..... So heinously ugly. I wish they'd gone taller instead of wider. And it's true: the 505 is a good infill building. Tall, but hopefully to be obscured by ones that are taller. As for the L&C, it was an architectural marvel when it was built. Very "mod."
  12. I've made this argument before as well. What if one thing Amazon is looking for is a city that needs a bit of "help" with, for example, developing a transit plan. Amazon could be using a city as a canvas to show the world what it can do, not just with shippings packages, but with their new healthcare plan, changes to grocery shopping, and privately funded, low-cost transit ideas.

    I'm wondering this too! The MLS expansion team has always been such a well-publicized gain for Nashville and now that it has to cross the remaining hurdles, the support of our city gov't seems to be fizzling out. Is City Council just cow-towing to the angry demands of the Fairgrounds "preservationists"? If stadium supporters were just as vocal would this be a non-issue? Either way, I have an extremely hard time understanding the mentality of someone who will angrily fight tooth-and-nail to keep the fairgrounds in their current state, or to be opposed to development just because it is development. NIMBYS..... ugh.

    I was unaware there was a Canopy Hilton proposed in SoBro. Maybe you meant the Tapestry Hilton?
