  1. And today I saw some actual surveying equipment, so I would reckon someone is likely preparing a detailed survey of the property.
  2. BTW, I saw someone marking off utility locations on the sidewalk in front of Jim Reed a week or so ago. Maybe it was for the Broadwest development, or who knows.
  3. It was one of the best hotels in town when it was built and enthusiastically welcomed. That's how pathetic the hotel stock in Nashville was at one time.

    The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    The soon to start, $37,000,000 'Smart Corridor' project which will allow better operation of I-24 from Nashville to Murfreesboro by using Highway 41 as a parallel option to relieve some of the overflow through advanced Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) technology to balance traffic between the two routes. Some information.... The official video This concept is based on Integrated Corridor Management projects implemented in five cities (Minneapolis, Dallas, etc.) by the Federal Highway Administration a decade or so ago. It is a less expensive option than adding lanes. And yes, if rapid commuter transit ever develops, it would easily be incorporated into the management scheme of this corridor. I hope the next project will be developed in Chattanooga to relieve congestion on I-24 which is persistent and ponderous by using Rossville Blvd/Georgia State Route 2 as a corridor alternative.

    More Accolades for Nashville

    Nashville's Schermerhorn Symphony Hall ranked as one of the 21 most spectacular 'theaters/concert/opera house' in the US by 'Curbed Magazine'... Picture from the website...
  6. BTW, per our discussion about Asheville, NC at the meeting, it's population increased by one this afternoon. My Grandson.

    West End/Mid Town/Music Row/Vandy Projects

    The Vanderbilt 'College Gothic' buildings lining West End will also add much to the 'Grand Boulevard' look of West End.

    Nashville Bits and Pieces

    It was odd how that happened. It seemed to be a last minute decision for security reasons. I wondered if they had gotten some news of concern from somewhere.
  11. A comparison of Nashville tallest buildings, current and proposed. The Paramount will impact the skyline, no doubt, but not like the Oklahoma City skyline.
  12. It's a picture taken of a digital billboard showing the rendering. The ads on the billboard are typically flashed for about 6 seconds as all the ads cycle through at 6 seconds each until the repeat of the original. It would be tough to get a quality snapshot.
