  1. Ooooooh.... I bet some folks in the Stahlman won't be happy about losing their view of downtown. But I love this proposal! Keeping a classic building as a base but expanding on top is a great idea. From the alley, you can see inside this building and it seems to have been deteriorating over the past few years. I'm glad it's being repurposed.
  2. Really? Unless the elevator shaft is a source of interior support for a building, they don't need to be solid concrete bunker-type structures. With all the concrete columns on each floor, the elevator shaft in this tower will likely just be surrounded by thick fireproof drywall or simple masonry.
  3. 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
  4. OH! But DON'T YA KNOW.... "Widening the interstate does NOTHING to alleviate the.... blah blahhh BLAH!"
  5. 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.
  6. I disagree. Hackberry trees are VERY replaceable..... Yuck.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. It WILL do well. People are hungry for a new private place since "The Spot" above Paradise Park closed.
  11. 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.
