    I'm not crazy for Stix but I really don't think it's that bad. It'll look better once there is more development around that circle.

    Federal Courthouse

    I'm glad this is no longer all talk, and that the courthouse project is happening. It will look great on that city block, being so close to the Capitol/ gubernatorial plaza

  4. I remember seeing those renderings for 505 back in 2011.

    Meet the meBank building in Melbourne, Australia
  6. Even Mobile, Alabama, boasts a taller tower. The Battle House Tower stands at 745 feet with only 35 floors. The crown beautifully accents the building. Would love to have something like that in Nashville. If Knoxville has a proposal for a 26-story residential building (!!!) then there is no reason Nashville can't crack 700 feet.

    MSA South - Williamson & Rutherford Counties

    I think it's a cosmetology school, if I can remember. I always remember the hideous design of the builing, so I'm glad to see it go.
  8. If Atlanta is the destination, I can say I called it. Agree. Obviously I know nothing about running a massive company, but this whole thing has been pretty dramatic. Considering what's at stake for a city if it is selected by Amazon, the suspense is warranted. Hurry up Amazon

    Knoxville Construction and Updates

    Thank you for the updates, @MLBrumby!
  10. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.bizjournals.com/nashville/news/2018/08/07/controversial-land-swap-with-tony-giarratana.amp.html From the article: "Under the proposed deal, Metro would give Giarratana the city-owned Church Street Park, at 600 Church St., in exchange for a parking lot Giarratana owns at 301 James Robertson Parkway. As part of the deal, Giarratana would commit $2 million to turn that site into a park and use city funds to build a services center and apartment building for the homeless on Metro-owned land at the intersection of Second Avenue and Gay Street."

    Thanks! I thought it was in greater Orlando.

    Nashville Bits and Pieces

    I may stand alone on this, but I'm glad that isn't being built in Nashville. That design suits Orlando well- Orlando is known for theme parks and resorts. The only other city something like that would belong in is Las Vegas. It kind of reminds me of the PolerCoaster (anyone remember this proposal?) but to a lesser degree of ridiculousness. Tl;dr: I think it's tacky
  13. From that angle, the Westin and Cambria flanking JWM to the sides look like a smaller version of Detroit's Renaissance Center
