    East Nashville/Inglewood/Madison/Donelson/Hermitage/Old Hickory

    I don't think I've seen this mentioned here yet: BarkBox will open their new concept BarkPark--a membership-only dog park with amenities--at 800 Meridian Street in East Nashville on September 8th. It'll run through November with the goal of a permanent outpost.

    Your daughter and I were friends at Belmont, actually. We had a handful of classes together.

    House of Cards is his too, isn’t it?

    I agree regarding retail. I think the still-developing nature of SoBro gives us the opportunity to recreate some of the great boutique shopping experiences of 12th South or The Shoppes on Fatherland in a more urban environment. Those types of stores are loved by locals and tourists alike and would create a unique and artful urban environment. I’d love to pull inspiration from some of our smaller niche neighborhoods and composite the best of each into SoBro. A theather—or even an arthouse theater—would be great. We could support another comedy club. Urban Target is a fantastic idea. Let’s use this area to develop something different and more livable than Lower Broad.

    Soccer in Nashville

    As a former flea market vendor, I have to express my fondness of the market and my belief that it is a very important part of Nashville’s culture. It’s one of the largest flea markets in the nation and is at the core of the “vintage revival” of this city. That said, MLS will not destroy the flea market. I have been looped in on anti-MLS petitions and protests since the possibility of MLS at the fairgrounds was announced last year, and this has always been their fear. They believe that regardless of what Metro says, that they will attempt to close the market once the stadium opens on the site. I’ve been very vocal toward those involved that this will not be the case, but there seems to be a pervasive distrust of government (both federal and local) within this demographic. It’s the same reason that many people voted down mass transit—even though the dedicated funding did not raise property taxes, they believed that the government would inevitably raise property taxes as a source of funding once all of the other pieces were in place. This mindset is a huge problem and I’m not sure what to do about it. If we are distrustful of any and every plan put before us regardless of however beneficial it is because we believe that everything is a lie intended to trick and rob us, how are we ever supposed to recognize and accept actual good plans, and how are we ever supposed to make any progress?

    They’ve grown so much even just over the past six. I graduated in 2012 and when I went back last week I didn’t even recognize the campus. It was crazy! Beautiful, though.

    It would certainly be less hypocritical if it weren’t a Christian organization, but it would still leave a bad taste in my mouth.
  8. The Turnip Truck is making its way into West Nashville. It bought the property at 5001 Charlotte Avenue for its latest store.

    JW Marriott - 385' - 34 Floors

    Someone from the JW Marriott team told me that they're taking on guests by the end of the month. It'll be fully operational within a week or two.

    Well they finally got a new vantage of the skyline. I mean, it's Melbourne's skyline, but close enough, right? Nashville Among Top Cities For Home Appreciation

    Nashville Population Boom Creates Condo Shortage But Investor Opportunities:
  15. I just had a conversation with the woman spearheading this project in Briley’s office. They’re planning to start public forums regarding this next month. She begged for anyone in support to attend, as most public input thus far has been in strong opposition (of course). Also, it’s 100 units of permanent low-income housing for the formerly homeless, not transitional housing. However, they expect a decent amount of turnover as tenants move up and out.
