  1. This one is actually under construction, no longer a proposal.
  2. The vertical development in Nashville the past 10 years has been nothing short of incredible. Exciting times for the city!
  3. 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.
  4. 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!
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. That's awesome to hear! I'm definitely Team Whataburger.
  8. You sort of butchered the spelling of 'Syracuse', my hometown, but nice post! Always loved this building.
  9. 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.
  10. 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,
  11. 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?
  12. 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.
  13. I knew the hotel was always on their list of plans for the arena, but I wonder with COVID if those plans have been put on the back burner.
  14. A lot of what you said is very true. However, I will argue there are plenty of beautiful areas in and around the city! There definitely are many ugly areas due to the lack of zoning and cheap building materials, plus the signage off the highway is something everyone on the Houston development forums complain about. That being said, if you get off those massive highways there are some truly beautiful neighborhoods around the city. I'll always point to Buffalo Bayou Park and Memorial Park as areas I consider to be prime examples of just how underrated of a city it can be. You get some beautiful
  15. Apologies if they go by a different name on this site, but Schmoe on the SkyscraperPage Nashville forum posted yesterday concerning the project (from what I understand, seems as though his previous employer was involved with Nashville Yards): "When I left, they were still doing VE on the AEG/MGM project, but the fundamental design has not changed much. As for Phase II of AEG/MGM (the B and C parcels along 9th Ave), the last I saw was two or three office towers. I pushed for some residential, but it seemed no one was listening. I have little insight on the rest of Nashville Yards, thoug
  16. I'm a current resident of Houston, and there is definitely some truth to the tweet. I can think of several neighborhoods (The Heights, Buffalo Bayou Park, Montrose) that are taking the initiative to make areas more walkable. But this walk-ability comes in pockets, meaning you can get around specific neighborhoods on foot or reach a park, but if you try to reach a different neighborhood you are still going to need a car. Our public transit system isn't really up to par either. It doesn't help that highways cut up the neighborhoods, but there have been proposas, including a highway cap park to c
  17. With the pandemic and the likelihood of sports returning without fans, I think it's safe to say we won't be seeing a new/renovated stadium for the Titans anytime soon.
  18. Perhaps the potential risk for more COVID cases given the tight proximity of people? (Personally it doesn't bother me, but I know a couple OCD people who have expressed that concern)
  19. I know it's not complete, and the lighting isn't doing any favors, but good Lord those townhomes look ugly.
  20. On a positive note, that's probably the cleanest Broadway has been in a while!
