  1. Maybe it’s the higher ceilings with brighter interior lights, but I prefer the look of office towers to residential at night. I don’t dislike the look of residential, but I think office just pops more.
  2. CBD/SoBro/RutledgeHill/Rolling Mill Hill Projects

    Agreed, third needs some work.
  3. I live in Madison and I either have to go to Hendersonville for a Moe’s or hermitage for a qdoba (ugh) if I want a fast casual burrito place. Blue coast, baja, Moe’s, and chipotle are missing a major market on the east side of the river.
  4. The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    It’s like advocating buying 100,000 microwaves to send to a place that has no electrical grid.
  5. This. Just save the $ on design and dust off the ole Siggy blueprints.
  6. I actually think the design is interesting, especially considering the roadside-motel brand and the location.
  7. The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    That’s the biggest issue I have with the “regional transit alternative” group, that it doesn’t matter how many trains come from Franklin and M’boro if they don’t have a network to plug into.
  8. It’s even more amazing how close they’ll be when you drive past in south loop. It strikes me every time that from the cranes of endeavor to 1201 there will be a 22,28, and 16 story building in a few years. Almost overnight urbanization.
  9. CBD/SoBro/RutledgeHill/Rolling Mill Hill Projects

    There’s already a thread about this project, along with the workforce-housing/homeless services building he wants to build as well.
  10. + drive through coffee place.
  11. Great use of that little plot of land! Pretty great location for whoever ends up living there, directly next to the bus terminal (especially if the transit referendum passes). Good to see some more density on the north side of downtown, and great to see another surface lot get better usage.
  12. Happy it’s in the CBD, going to be a great centerpiece to the skyline. Hope he puts some serious effort into a good crown to make it distinctive. Bummed about the loss of that park though, I’ve always thought it was a wonderful little oasis.
  13. The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    I got my first anti transit mailer yesterday (well, my first of any side of the transit debate) and it was incredibly frustrating how incorrect it all was. The anti-transit Facebook pages are even more frustrating. They don’t seem to understand that highways are federally funded, not city funded. Plus we just passed an infrastructure repair bill in the state legislature last year, why would Davidson county need to pass additional road repair bills.
  14. Nashville Bits and Pieces

    The country music industry tends to move a little slower than it could, which may be a good thing since it creates the “outlaw” mentality among those who aren’t following the trend. Hank Sr., Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Hank Jr, Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash, and the aforementioned Stapleton, Isbell, and Simpson weren’t accepted by the country establishment, and its their “f#%* you” mentality about it that gives them that edge that made/makes them great.

    Midtown is also a good possibility, maybe the emery spectrum building, or that newly announced one on I believe 16th Avenue (can’t remember the name).
