  1. The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    The original plans indicated a trolley Line would be installed on Broadway/West End as far as I-440. As far as the 'Subway' portion is concerned, I made another crude drawing that may be proven to be completely wrong. But I present it anyway with all caveats. Not sure where they would 'dive' underground on the north side. But Charlotte/Murfreesboro could be one line and Gallatin/Nolensville the other with a simple transfer station beneath the Music City Central. There would be another transfer station at the mentioned Lafayette Street station. Wow!! A true subway line!!!
  2. This is nice......
  3. Nashville Public Art

    There is a wonderful mural on the west side of town that represents a group effort of people joining together for a great altruistic cause. My daughter, Son-in-law and even my Grandchild were deeply involved. It may not be the most appealing work of art at first glance, but it is the beauty of people coming together to create a visual statement of what they feel is important that makes it great art. And it was done by invitation of the building owners and with their complete cooperation. I'm not going to give the location due to the obvious and appalling threats made in this forum toward other similar artistic efforts. And I'm taking those comments very personally.
  4. Beautiful. Where did this city come from??
  5. Margaritaville Hotel,12 stories, 145 ft., 215 rooms

    He was at St. Thomas Hospital the same time my Mother was there a year or so ago, so he had some connection with Nashville. You never know who you'll run into in Nashville.

    You want to 'Tag' someone's art? You can't be serious.
  7. The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    Looks like the 'underground' portion of the transit plan will go north-south with a station under the Music City Central transit hub and another 'near Lafayette Street south of downtown' according to the Tennessean.
  8. Margaritaville Hotel,12 stories, 145 ft., 215 rooms

    I had heard that 'Little Richard' lived in the top floor of the Hilton next to the arena. Of course, Minnesota Fats lived in the Hermitage Hotel so I guess it's a thing for celebs to meet guests and get a room. Maybe that's what they are going for.

    This may be Amazon HQ2 bait. He only has 30 acres but is suggesting the entire West Trinity Lane corridor be rezoned. Seems like a hurried proposal to me.
  10. From the article..."...a more slender building, at 450 to 475 feet tall...." I didn't realize it could be up to 475'.
  11. Nashville Bits and Pieces

    An interesting article in the Las Vegas Review Journal comparing Nashville to Las Vegas, particularly with regard to having an NHL and an NFL team to root for. It's an interesting dose of Nashville envy from the least likely of sources. After all, 'Nashvegas' sometimes tends to look in the opposite direction with a wisp of envy at Vegas's ability to throw a party. The article concludes with... Maybe they will start calling themselves, 'Las ville' ? or....maybe not...
  12. CBD/SoBro/RutledgeHill/Rolling Mill Hill Projects

    Couldn't be much of a tower here with height restrictions. It would max out at what, 10 stories?
  13. Soccer in Nashville

    Translation... "Detroit , get your act together!!!" No doubt some intentional leakage going on to spur others into stepping up. I would guess it's down to Sacramento in the west and Nashville/Detroit in the East.
