  1. I randomly met the director and was interviewed for this French documentary about Nashville a couple years ago. Looks like I didn't make the cut, but it was just released this week:
  2. Amtrak released a map for their 2035 expansion. It includes Nashville, but as a one-off arm from Atlanta. It'd be great if we could connect to Chicago via Louisville... https://twitter.com/AmtrakConnects/status/1494421265658093569/photo/1
  3. Fun fact: Tennessee is the state that borders the most other states (Tied with MO at 8 states).
  4. "Corp of Engineers Plans To Develop Nashville Lake Recreation Area" https://tennesseelookout.com/2022/02/14/corps-of-engineers-seeks-to-develop-nashville-lake-recreation-area/
  5. There have been ongoing major plumbing leaks and moisture issues in the floors below TPAC (old TN State museum). There’s been a project for the past several months to remove the state collection out of the building because it’s no longer considered safe for storage. It’s a great looking building but not really usable for anything anymore.
  6. "The Joys and Challenges of Being a Hot City" https://www.governing.com/community/the-joys-and-challenges-of-being-a-hot-city
  7. The exterior of 1 Hotel is going to be covered in 10-15’ flowing ivy on the lobby level, which should really add some life to all this glass and cement. A friend of mine is in charge of the greenhouses that are supplying all the plants for this hotel. The rooms themselves are to be filled with all sorts of tropical plants as well. I’m excited to see how it comes together.
  8. with recent expenditures at our current museum and archives, I wouldn't count on any state money being earmarked for new museums for the foreseeable future, unfortunately.
  9. They had their opening event on Halloween Night, although it was only in the venue section. Last I heard, there’s a small section of flooring still missing and the materials are held up in the supply chain, and inspectors won’t let them fully open until that last bit is laid down. Everything else has been ready to go for a month or more.
  10. It’s obvious from the video too. The narrator had already started filming, so already an incident was underway. Then the narrator shouts, “do they even know him?” Then he walks away from everyone after. But everyone jumps to the conclusion that the pedal tavern had overserved him, which doesn’t fit at all.
  11. I was able to read it without a subscription. This jumped out at me as seeming erroneous: Davidson County lost 10,000 households? Do they mean people who moved but were replaced? Because they’re making it sound like Davison lost population.
  12. I'm not and I can read it, but I think there is a monthly limit for free articles.
  13. NY Times: "Nashville's Twisting Journey" https://www.nytimes.com/2021/08/24/us/politics/nashville.html
  14. A few residential developments around Madison Park. Land has been cleared at 223 Roosevelt Ave for what looks like a condo/townhouse complex. Work has resumed on the townhouse development at 1207 Pierce road. Several other new builds in the Cumberland Bend development and the surrounding area.
  15. I saw that. I'm pretty sure it was just being transported. Looks like King Of Hustler is a new male strip club and I guess that'll be their mechanical bull? It's not a downtown "transportainment" thing though. And if it is, we should riot.
  16. Aw man, Baronakim, you just razed my apartment! Haha There’s actually a bit more life in that strip of warehouses than most people realize—lofts, maker space, vintage stores, a flea market, go karts, etc. I personally would love to see the Davidson Street strip down to Shelby Bottoms rezoned and infilled with some more height—it could make a really great, unique neighborhood with just a little tweaking.
  17. https://theathletic.com/2184287/2020/11/07/nashville-toronto-raptors/ Nashville being considered as temporary home for Toronto Raptors for 2020-2021 season.
