  1. Mayor John Cooper has nixed a potential deal to relocate PSC Metals' sprawling scrapyard off the East Bank. https://www.bizjournals.com/nashville/news/2019/11/19/exclusive-mayor-cooper-nixed-proposal-to-relocate.html
  2. OH! But DON'T YA KNOW.... "Widening the interstate does NOTHING to alleviate the.... blah blahhh BLAH!"
  3. Like Nashville, London is booming! The skyline has changed a lot since i was studying there just 5 years ago. It's a perfect city for everyone, especially young people. I enjoyed every part of it. Especially the efficient mass transit.
  4. I disagree. Hackberry trees are VERY replaceable..... Yuck.
  5. I think the white exterior is beautiful! It's going to be big, bright, and imposing, as all impressive federal buildings should be! I'm excited to see the finished product. I have been thinking the same thing! One would think that, being a federal building, they wouldn't want the general public knowing all of the details of the internal structure/construction/weak points, etc.. Granted, anyone can take pictures from afar, but I thought there would be some type of security preventing someone from gathering close photos, or lingering too long nearby.
  6. Another "big fix" that would make our downtown area really POP is developing all the PARKING LOTS!!! I can't stand that so many locations in our city, perfect for a 30-story apartment or office, are just slabs of asphalt. This tower is one that will help create a homogenous skyline. Even if it's only 15 stories, the massing from the Kimpton/Aertson, Adelicia, Kennect, Morris, and on to the Virgin will be a big visual impact.
  7. I love Tesco, and Boots, which is owned by Walgreens, but in the UK, nothing beats Pret a Manger! I wish Nashville had one downtown or in 12th South. It would stay very busy.
  8. It WILL do well. People are hungry for a new private place since "The Spot" above Paradise Park closed.
  9. I couldn't agree more. If the city can't figure out a solution to develop better, more user-friendly mass transit, then you can believe private companies are going to swoop in and solve the problem for us.
  10. I'm glad the news is finally out! Skanska was in talks with Apple for a while, and Apple finally sealed the deal months ago when they told Skanska basically "No, tear all that down, we're gonna' do our own thing." I couldn't spill the beans, so just left it at "large tech company." I have been thinking of the idea of the giant apple logo, cornerpiece of a shiny new downtown development, staring down the Honky Tonks of Broadway. I love the juxtaposition. A flagship Apple store across the street from a one-story honky tonk with a mural of all the country greats on the side. This will be the line of demarkation between the touristy "cowboy boots" part of Nashville, and the metropolitan city that is growing up around us.
  11. Now are you referring to Sun Ra, or Lady Gaga? Both start a song with the same lyric.
