  1. Weren't there renderings of this project posted on this thread, or another? Can someone repost the previous renderings??
  2. That's the word I'd use: handsome. I like the dark reds and grays. Nashville really needed something like this, especially in SoBro
  3. But remember, country music is not the only thing drawing travelers to Nashville. Nashville's international banking community, as well as several businesses, is strongly connected to Asian markets, aside from the more obvious connections with Hankook Tires and Nissan. Also, the Ingram companies do a lot of business in British/European markets, and have frequent business travels.
  4. Correct. The Renaissance is keeping it's Ballroom, which is the structure with the light-grey roof. Everything under the green and brown roofs is pretty much restrooms and open areas for small-scale convention use. The Green/Brown roof is part of the convention center will be torn down, i.e. nothing is being built around it/on top of it while it remains intact.
  5. Uber
  6. Demolition of the Mazda Dealership will begin in the next 3 weeks according tot he Nashville Post (The article is locked so i posted it below) Hendersonville-based Environment Abatement Inc. will handle the demolition of the ex-Mazda dealership building located on Broadway and at which a mixed-use tower anchored by Whole Foods is planned. Demo will start within three weeks, according to source who asked to go unnamed. . Austin-based Endeavor Real Estate Group will develop the project, to include a 26-story structure that will rise at the northwest corner of the intersection of 12th Avenue North and Broadway in the North Gulch. Apartments and office space are part of the mix. Jamil Alam, Endeavor managing principal, could not be reached for comment related to a possible groundbreaking. Metro has approved all site and concept plans. Endeavor has created Broadway Whiskey Partners to undertake the project. The project could carry a price tag of about $100 million, according to previous media reports. The building would rise about 320 feet, ranking it among Nashville's 20 tallest if standing today. The Nashville office Turner Construction will serve as general contractor.
  7. Right! How long has this been going on? It's just a bridge. I know there was a lot of grading and infrastructure involved, but it's still a short little bridge.
  8. Mockingbird Restaurant being developed next to Tánsuo in the Gulch
  9. What's wrong with "L" shapes?
  10. I visited Caviar & Bananas yesterday afternoon and it is divine. Perfect little corner market/lunch counter but with a very classy metropolitan feel.
  11. MDHA said they "need more details" about the outdoor decks because they might not be up-to-code.
  12. Big stuff in Nashville. Tall downtown hotels are more impactful than a townhouse in the nations I will probably never see
  13. So can someone post a picture of this rendering? If it's "floating around" then let's see it
