Whistle-Stop (3/14)



  1. Yeah I'm a big fan of the clustered height & density, because it allows for less car dependency. Downtown's height spilling into Midtown (which is a lot more adjacent than Atlanta's midtown) gives a lot of room to grow vertically, while keeping that cluster. But after the loop, Midtown, and East Bank are developed, were would Nashville (or Middle TN's) next vertical expansion go? Will Metro upzone another area (Crossings, Bellevue, Trevecca area?) like they did with Midtown? Does Cool Springs upzone/densify into our version of Buckhead?
  2. We're looking at 511 parking spots in Prime for 714 apartments (356 in Alcove & 358 in Prime) plus a retail spot (in Prime). IMO, that 0.7 spots/unit is worth cheering for. IIRC, one of the full-block developments in Rutledge Hill was claiming that a residential tower had "zero parking" but it's like Tony's towers where the rest of the development has a few extra spots "just in case."
  3. It's in part due to the Dickerson Corridor studies that have updated the land use policy to be moderately more dense, it's in part due to Oracle & East Bank, it's in part due to "everything else" being too expensive. https://www.nashville.gov/departments/planning/long-range-planning/local-planning-studies/dickerson-south Once the dozen+ 5-story apartment buildings get finished, there will be more demand for restaurants and services, so we should get some decent mixed-use as well. Curious what the last couple Hill Center developments have looked like - could give us an idea of what to expect here.
  4. What it means is that apartment buildings don't have to build a required 1 spot per unit or 1 spot per bedroom when they build. Most builders will still build parking (same as they do in the downtown core - DTC, where parking is optional today), but some won't build parking (see Alcove on Church St.), and some will build fewer parking spots. That lets the market determine the parking needed, and lets people build neighborhoods and areas that don't require cars for daily life.
  5. Is Madison Station (with 8 phases likely to take 6+ years) worth its own thread?
  6. Any recent news or movement on the Ragland lot and Ragland building (old Asurion site)? Edit: never mind, just saw that the magic 8 ball might be hearing rumblings...
  7. This turned out way better than I expected - think the massive windows help a lot.
  8. Phase 2's residential/hotel component is absolutely still in demand, but with the excess capacity in Nashville's office/commercial market, as well as the sewer work going in along Grundy St a block north of this lot, there's plenty of things that could be causing the slow-roll here. What's Highwoods building currently? Are they just sequencing projects? Are they waiting for a few tower cranes to free up?
  9. Great location! This inverted image had me questioning reality for a minute. Anyone know if the oil/gas terminals (the big round tanks) along the Cumberland will end up moving? Or will we see apartments & gasoline as neighbors for the long term?
  10. Ron, my pipe dream is that Culdesac is going to build their 2nd car-free development here in Nashville. ( https://culdesac.com/about ) Can you confirm that you don't think they're the buyer?
  11. I have the same thought. Had a colleague who lived at the Encore for a while… apparently a bit of noise comes in from tourists / Broadway / Ascend - be sure to check out noise levels on a Friday night before you buy.
  12. The hundreds of units underway around this intersection (and future hundreds likely to come) mean that we’re about to need two things: a crosstown bus route on Trinity, from Gallatin Pike to Clarksville Pike; and a passenger station on the future heavy rail commuter route where the tracks go over Trinity.
