    The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    This interurban train system in Nashville was news to me.....pretty cool.

    Soccer in Nashville

    Not sure ( “I hope you choke on a soccer ball you sons of beotches.” Older adult women ) = "Own the libs". Are you assuming soccer fans = libs? Being 'part of the solution' means what? They going to lose income. They are not guaranteed that at the end of this process they will have an affordable place to ply their trades/wares. Look, I am not saying the sweet heart deal they have had, evidently for decades, should continue...changes is forced upon all of us. But, I do think it unreasonable that we castigate these voters because they are not happy about the changes that may/will disrupt their lifestyle/income. As I stated before, it is my belief Metro should have been out in front of this situation prior to the site selection.

    ^^ Well graft is all over Metro, so not unique to 'these' people as they are perceived on the board. They have every right to push their claim and have it adjudicated. I am a strong MLS supporter and stadium proponent, but they have been screwed over multiple times in the last 5-10 years and maybe that is why they have a 'chip' on their shoulder. By the by …. I love the 'own the libs' comment! Are we talking politics now? It is just such haughty attitudes that handed the 'libs' their own assess in 2016.... lets hope Metro's dismissive disposition towards the 'fairground people' does not cost us an MLS franchise.

    I found this past/present (Google present so minus the JW) pic on FB and thought it was cool.
  7. ONE KVB is cutting floors to get it started...losing 5 floors per WW
  8. ^^ Yes, I read the same. I will be elated is this is 'real' and happens in a reasonable timeframe. My worry, as we have all seen, is the difficulty in getting other buildings(SAP, KVB Circle building, former WES) out of the ground in much (much) better locations and some with signed tenants. This is a brownfield development in the middle of nowhere..... again I an rooting for its success.
  9. Possibly.... I hope they have more information than just diagrams.... West End Summit had pretty pictures.
  10. Would the city approve those funds unless it had a clear understanding of the owner- developer’s plans? If there are not development timetables and capital in place this seems like a foolish move by the city. I say this because the outlay is so closely tied to the River North development.

    More Accolades for Nashville

    ^ That is the kind of experience Nashville delivered in spades. My wife hosted her corporate management meeting in Nashville last spring... 150 senior management and C-suite executives from all over the country and the UK. Since then 3 couples have decided to relocate to Nashville - from Chicago, San Diego, and Boston. For Nashville seeing is believing.

    Yes, the hotel developed, Ted Welch, had office space in the tower since it opened. He passed several years ago.

    The story is not very informative. The storm water rationale would have been worth exploring. There were also three facts presented worthy of more detailed reporting. 1- Metro has a forestry manager 2- Why? "If you look around, the places that have lost tree cover in the last 10 years or so, they are predominantly areas of high poverty and they are where we have high concentrations of African-Americans in our town," he said. "That's why we have decided to focus initially on those areas of town as we go out and plant trees for this community." 3- Is this just a jobs program by another name? The new tree campaign will help employ youth involved in Metro's Opportunity Now program, according to the mayor's office.

    So Metro constantly pleads poverty for MNPS but spend 2 million annually on trees? What does that translate into, 20-40 teachers?
