  1. Well I disagree. It is both a PR and monetary windfall for both Amazon and the eventual city selected. This is an NFL relocation x 50. The stature of any city who lands this leviathan is instantly raised (some like Nashville exponentially). Other industries and especially HQs will follow the path blazed by AmazonHQ2.
  2. Obviously, but Nashville seems to be knocking-up against its speed of gri with as it is. There are numerous lengthy delays from Metro on approvals from permits and other oversight rules......PLUS....we saved $9Billion....winner winner chicken dinner.

    Raised 2 boys in the CBID for 14 years with no issues....well the schools suck a$$, but no other issues.
  5. My statement was opaque. My opinion is that transit is NOT a prerequisite for residential density in a growing city. This is easily evident as Nashville’s boom continues....even picking up pace....post transit defeat. Anecdotal, but I have yet to hear or read of any Nashville development that was scuttled or scaled-back because of the dearth of transit. You ask me to prove a negative, yet no one seems to be asking the question - how much development would have occurred REGARDLESS of the transit? Nashville is a meta answer to the query. Case-in-point Charlotte TODs Charlotte, NC exemplifies a southern city that has utilized land-use zoning changes, in conjunction with strategic planning for transit, to help create numerous new TODs along its 9.5 mile LYNX light rail line. LYNX, which opened in 2007, records 15,000 daily users. Charlotte has seen ROI well over 300% since the rail line’s completion. The $1.87 billion in private investment and development along the south corridor spurred $515 million in additional real estate tax value, an increase of 121% since 2000. The city established an acquisition fund to purchase land near the stations planned along its South Corridor light rail line to ensure the development of mixed-income, mixed-use TOD. Charlotte’s City Council capitalized the fund with an initial grant of $5 million
  6. I am not being negative about transit, but it shows the fallacy that transit drives development ....at least in many (most?) corridors. WestEnd, Church, Franklin Road., 12th Ave. S., Charlotte Pike, Nolensville Pike, 21st Ave., Hermitage Ave., are doing great and adding dense clusters of residential at a fast clip...maybe even Gallatin Pike.... Lafayette in the South and Dickerson Pike in the North are developing more slowly and transit may be part of what is needed on there routes. My point is Nashville is doing better since the transit plan was voted down....there are 25 - story developments (see this thread) popping-up overnight....

    This all sounds like 'frat bro' wannabes. True frat bros do not mix with hipster bros.... unless of course we have located the legendary PC bros...

    Not sure what a fart bro is, but if you meant to type frat bro you are probably mistaken....no self-respecting frat bro would be on Ellington pkwy?
  9. No picture since I was driving, but the entire 15+ acre site is now completely razed of buildings except for the long pizza shop on church.

    This thread us comical. Rest assured that Beaman will not be selling any assets to pay for a prenup divorce. btw, I have no clue what the truth is regarding their long marriage...I would venture a guess that no one forces this lady to do anything against her will...
