  1. CBD/SoBro/RutledgeHill/Rolling Mill Hill Projects

    Quality materials and workmanship from a time that knew about elegance and style. Glad it was saved!
  2. Project Thread/New Construction/Photo du jour/Const. CAMs

    The very best photos of Nashville I have ever seen! (These are nice photos, but I am referring to the ones on page 277).
  3. HOPES, WISHES, AND PREDICTIONS FOR THE NEW YEAR

    I wish for the preservation of our cultural heritage, for the Titans offense to fulfill its potential, and for the continued growth and general improvement of the town, including sidewalks, high urban survivability trees, mass transit, taller, more stylish buildings, more and larger corporate relocations, and a continuation of our status as the "it" city.
  4. The Westin Music City - 27 Floors/320', 452 Rooms

    The Westin has a certain amount of presence, it extends the downtown, and the stylish rooftop lounge affords the best view anywhere of Nashville's ever expanding core.
  5. Federal Courthouse

    A longtime eyesore in a prominent part of town. Good riddance!
  6. CBD/SoBro/RutledgeHill/Rolling Mill Hill Projects

    People love intimate alleyways (medieval Europe).
  7. Project Thread/New Construction/Photo du jour/Const. CAMs

    Thanks for the hypothetical pics! I think two or three super talls are all that is needed to make Nashville look very cosmopolitan. No city can compete with New York, but some get credit for being large metropolises that only have 3-6 super talls. Where Nashville kills it right now is through what's at ground level, i.e., an attractive, compact urban core with a ton of things to do. I remember when Nashville had a nothing downtown and a main drag that was a porno district, and I had no idea that we would ever be where we are now.
  8. The Gulch Projects

    I have used the connector several times and have had it all to myself. I park free there and get out and enjoy the skyline view, then drive north into downtown.
  9. I have very little trouble getting around downtown. I'm using the new Division Street Connector which doesn't seem to be getting any use by anyone else. I can skirt the southern edge of downtown and cut north on whatever avenue I think will be the most expeditious. No problem. Dealing with traffic here is largely a matter of knowing the roads least travelled, the times of day that have the least traffic, then having the ability to relax, maybe while listening to 91.1 FM.
  10. Nashville Bits and Pieces

    I've lived in Nashville for a very long time, but have found the last several years really entertaining.
  11. Stylish, elegant, substantive addition to the city.
  12. Project Thread/New Construction/Photo du jour/Const. CAMs

    Good style, workmanship, and materials. A jewel.
  13. Project Thread/New Construction/Photo du jour/Const. CAMs

    Great eye! Beautiful, comprehensive shots!
