  1. Speaking as someone who relocated to the Chicago area (from Houston if you can believe it!), I think I can say with some confidence that the crime is generally overstated. Now don't get me wrong, the murders are a significant problem, and the loss of life is unacceptable regardless of the total count. That being said, I think Chicago, fair or unfair, sees more national attention for its gun violence compared to other cities with less people that have significantly higher murders per capita. Perhaps some of that comes down to the fact that Chicago is the 3rd largest city in the country, and tha
  2. This one is actually under construction, no longer a proposal.
  3. The vertical development in Nashville the past 10 years has been nothing short of incredible. Exciting times for the city!
  4. Agreed. Wish they could build a new science museum near the Tennessee History Museum and Library. It would be great to keep all the museums in one area similar to the mall in DC or the lakefront in Chicago.
  5. As a current Houstonian, THIS. The roads in and around Houston are rough, and it's made even worse by how car-centric we are as a city!
  6. I honestly love the design and think it has the opportunity to be pretty iconic for that area. But I have to admit, the more I look at it, the more it reminds me of the poop emoji.
  7. I just got back to work after having COVID for the past 2 weeks. One of our clients asked where I was and I told him I was under quarantine with the virus. He straight up told me, in all seriousness, that the virus was fake and that I probably had something else. It's beyond me how people can still believe something like that after almost a year of this.
  8. That's awesome to hear! I'm definitely Team Whataburger.
  9. You sort of butchered the spelling of 'Syracuse', my hometown, but nice post! Always loved this building.
  10. Seems that small plop may be better suited for a park or green space. A dog park is the first thing that pops in my head, but they probably already have a dog park somewhere on the site.
  11. Nashville Scored the #8 spot on Conde Nast Traveler's Top 10 Best Big Cities in the U.S. for 2020 https://www.cntraveler.com/gallery/best-cities-us?fbclid=IwAR2HndktuRdW5fX9DJrcNjhXa4k8srFYm_-aKX8txVE-2KPP3JoDwVWnm7g From the article: "A southern city with a small-town feel, you might find that a weekend isn’t enough to get all you can out of Nashville. Music City is known for its legendary honky tonks on Lower Broadway, but be sure to take time away from the buzz of the strip to explore the city’s shops and restaurants. You’ve likely heard of Prince’s Hot Chicken Shack,
  12. Soooo, any word on whether or not they are going to kick off construction on this portion of the project? Or is it just going to become the next giant swimming pool for downtown?
  13. I'm from Houston and I noticed a couple of their projects, the Ivy and the James, are located near the River Oaks District, an area generally associated with the richy rich crowd. I've seen the buildings in person and I can tell you they at least use quality materials, inside and out, and the brick looks good. Sure the designs are vanilla, no argument there, but at least the buildings themselves seem to be solid and sound.
