  1. JW Marriott - 385' - 34 Floors - topped out

    Demonbreun is shut down next to the JWM and a crane seems to be going up. Is that for removing the JWM tower crane?
  2. Nashville Bits and Pieces

    I think there was actually an article in the NBJ about this a couple days ago. It was behind the paywall so I’m not exactly positive it was, though. I would have to expect they’d go down quite a bit considering the added room numbers. I can’t wait for it, I’d love to stay at some of the 4th avenue rehabs without spending $400 a pop.
  3. The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    I don’t mean to put words into grilled cheese’s mouth, but I took his post to be a parody of how many surrounding county residents view Nashville’s transit plan and the taxes used for it. If that’s the case, I thought it was pretty funny.
  4. Complete and utter sarcasm, haha. I’m in love with the Tower Life building. San Antonio is an incredibly underrated city, partly because of their amazing pre-modern architecture. Sure they haven’t had that much new construction over the past couple decades, but the buildings they have are well maintained and worth preserving.
  5. Nashville Bits and Pieces

    Violent crime rates have been nationally dropping like crazy for a couple of decades (a fact often ‘forgotten’ by all sides of political debates), but Nashville has seen an unfortunate uptick in homicides in the past few years. We’ve gone from around 40-45 murders in like 2013 and 2014 to over 100 last year, close to an all-time high. Hopefully it’s just an aberration, but I think it’s worthy of concern and action, which the police seem to think too.

    The story Mark posted mentioned that the second of the two existing Franklin Park buildings has the Schneider Electric offices and the CKE offices. Does anyone know who occupies the first building?
  7. It really is huge coming from 65 south into south loop. If something substantial is built on the adjacent RJ Young property it would make quite an intimidating wall along the highway there.

    If delta eventually adds an Amsterdam flight from BNA, as has been rumored, the focus city idea could totally work if only for the connections. Kind of like their situation in Raleigh-Durham. In any case when the Airlines fight for routes it’s good for us, the consumers.

    Saw a couple pro-transit signs in Forrest Hills earlier. Interesting area for support, since I don’t think they’ll see much impact there. Good to see it though. The only impact you’ll see is a miniscule sales tax increase. Shouldn’t be more than 4 or 5 dollars with a $500 purchase.

    I’m curious to see what delta does to retaliate, besides cutting their own prices. They’ve been know in the past to start “spite flights” when another airline encroaches on their turf. Like in the early to mid 2000s they greatly increased flights at JFK, to the extent of losing money, simply so JetBlue’s on-time record would suffer. I could see Delta increasing their service to Orlando to daily and year round to bite into a lucrative Southwest route, or perhaps increasing frequency to Los Angeles. What will we have now, 15 flights a day total to ATL? Seems excessive haha.

    Wow, 5 times daily, that’s bold. I expected them to eventually add Atlanta (since it’s such a huge focus city with lots of connections), but I figured with delta’s dominance it would be maybe 2 times a day. 5 per day seems crazy, but I like the vote of confidence! Now hopefully someone will wise up and add a Portland, Oregon flight!

    A two year affair is hardly a “mistake.” It’s a persistent and repeated betrayal of promises made to the person who should have been able to trust her more than anyone, not a one-off flub-up stemming from passion and too much to drink. It’s her wanting to have her cake and eat it too. That definitely reflects on someone’s trustworthiness in other aspects of their life, most certainly as an elected official where public trust is so important.
  13. The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    Yeah I’m pretty sure like 90% of the comments on there are people who live outside of Nashville yet still think they should have a say in internal Nashville infrastructure debates. Like before I just threw in the towel and stopped trying to argue I got into several debates with citizens of Rutherford, Sumner, and Williamson county about the transit plan. They were all adamantly opposed because it doesn’t do anything to address traffic on 65 and 24. I kept telling them that this was an internal Nashville plan that was not meant to address traffic concerns of other cities in the area, but they just couldn’t get that. When they started complaining about their commute I started just replying “man, that sucks. Maybe Rutherford county should try and fund a train to Nashville to help with y’alls traffic. But don’t expect the citizens of Nashville to pay to make your commute easier.”

    When is this supposed to break ground? I completely forgot about this project, if I knew about it at all. That intersection is going to be insane if all these projects actually take off.
