    The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    Don't care for the new look-it's way too generic. I was hoping for something like Music City Link-after all, Nashville already has Music City Star and Music City Circuit. This could be Anytown USA. Nashville is not Anytown USA.

    CBD/SoBro/RutledgeHill/Rolling Mill Hill Projects

    I too am worried about Lower Broad losing its grittiness-it's starting to get way too swanky and perhaps even a bit oversaturated with this concept if the trend continues. As for "Cabaret" I'm thinking the revitalized Printers Alley would be the perfect location for that concept. I want to see the Alley lined with clubs from Church Street to Union Street! A good counterbalance to LoBro that would attract a different crowd.

    As someone who traveled overseas a lot when I was younger I can tell you that Nashville is getting there but is not there yet-an improved transit system obviously needs to happen but a major corporate relocation of two (or one Amazon type!) would help immensely. Also, some more world class architecture to accompany the growth would show that Nashville not only sounds good but looks good as well. I say this as a native Nashvillian living a few hours north with a serious case of homesickness!
  4. Printers Alley is very underutilized...now with the hotels finishing up it's time to see more development going on there.

    Ideas for Nashville

    Great idea Mark! Those buildings burned down in the mid 80's when I was working for BWSC a block or two away and that parking lot sticks out like a sore thumb!
  6. Skydiving and golfing belong in Music Valley. With thousands of more people moving into and next to Downtown Nashville there is a need for additional green space and the East Bank is the place for it. Manhattan has Central Park why can't Nashville have East Bank Park?

    PSC Metals scrap yard

    Many thanks for that! I was wondering since I thought I read somewhere that PSC was taken to court at some point for stormwater contamination.

    IKEA to Nashville

    Correction: Mad Dogs was the CFL Team. Not Hound Dogs.

    IKEA to Nashville

    If I remember correctly, HoundDogs was the nickname of the short-lived CFL team there. I lived in Memphis in the early 90's and I think the other reason the NFL passed on them was the Liberty Bowl. It just wasn't up to par for what the league was looking for.

    What criteria would this site have to meet to qualify as a Superfund Site?
  11. One thing I wish would change is the name 12th South itself. Couldn't they have called that area Sevier Park (kinda like Sylvan Park)? After all, the park is named that. It would just sound a little more distinct. As for the road itself, I think it needs streetscaping all the way from 440 through Edgehill to the Gulch. If anyone is familiar with Bardstown Road in Louisville, that is the look that I would like to see.
  12. I worked in that building in the early 1980's. Brings back memories!

    As I mentioned, this will probably end up being an EPA Superfund site or else there won't be any buyers. Come to think of it, a good portion of the East Bank should probably end up being a Superfund site. My dream is to deindustrialize the Cumberland River From Opryland to Cockrill Bend and relocate industries to the vacant land that's available in Cockrill Bend. There's quite a bit of it if you look at a map. Then the cleared land could be used for parks and residential development.

    Ideas for Nashville

    Here's an idea I forgot to include earlier......move the Maxwell House hotel back to its original spot on the corner of 4th and Church and build a 30-40 story art deco building to house it. Maxwell House is an internationally recognized brand and would become (once again) Nashville's signature hotel.

    Yeah, Memphis gets the IKEA too.... Where are they putting the aquarium? Mud Island?
