    I've wondered when this will happen, as well. The replacement will certainly snarl traffic but the Demonbreun viaduct replacement proved to be a huge catalyst for growth on Demonbreun.

    Nashville Bits and Pieces

    Interesting. Nashville recalls over a 100 short term rental permits issued in error in 2018. "Metro Codes officials will send cancellation notices in the coming weeks to more than 100 short-term rental permit holders who got their licenses by mistake in 2018. Staff members accidentally overlooked a rule in the complicated law governing vacation rental permits in Nashville when approving requests, officials said. The January 2018 ordinance prohibits licenses in residential areas to lots with two-family homes — such as duplexes and so-called tall-and-skinnies — unless the properties are all owned by the same person, who also lives in one of the residences on the lot. But that rule was not followed. "

    2003 song of his featuring Hank Williams Jr. Kid Rock, or Bobby as he likes to be called by friends, is around town a lot. Bobby is a good hang. Kid Rock is vaudeville. He rides around town in a Rolls Royce with a license plate holder that says "Follow me to Waffle House."
  4. Red Horse has done A LOT of the new homes in Wedgewood-Houston. One of the owners, is the son of Edward Ewing, the developer of the proposed West Trinity Lane project with new bridges over the Cumberland. An affordable housing project like this should carry some favor with the affordable housing advocates on the Metro Council. See here:

    Some shots from the 6th floor leasing office at Niido/Olmstead. Angles include north on 5th Avenue South, and west towards the KVB roadabout.

    Pinnacle may have been a target in early 2016 as they crossed the $10b in assets mark. Which is a mark that comes with much more regulatory scrutiny. They’ve charged ahead since then and I don’t view them as a target any time soon. I’m pulling for CapStar to grow via acquisition but they’ve taken some lumps since going public, both by writing off bad loans in behavioral healthcare and fighting an activist investor.
  8. As a Wedgewood-Houston resident I can add the police substation (right word?) that was kept at Fairgrounds has also moved. Chinetti and Milner might be only folks who know what I'm referencing.

    Amazon: The Thread | 5,000 Jobs | 1M SQFT in Nashville Yards

    With Amazon making a bid this morning on the Fox assets that Disney will not be holding onto, including all of the regional Fox sports channels.... I'd like to point out that in the latest renderings the towers next to 'Team A' are for 'Station One.'

    Bezos hasnt replied to my text asking if the tower will have a helipad yet so doubtful Im going to have the answer to this either. In all seriousness, I havent seen this information anywhere yet.

    Tax incentives were structured with the condition that all 5000 jobs are here within 7 years. From what I've read Amazon to begin hiring in early 2019 at all HQ2 locations.
