  1. Thanks, but no credits needed. It's just fun watching this go viral.

    Nashville College & University Expansion

    I like this one a lot. The way it stands on top of the hill when you drive down 12th.

    Nashville Public Art

    I'm a frequent visitor. There is another piece of art in the yard that is very intriguing under various natural light conditions.
  6. Throwback Thursday….... a card I made based on some internet research by myself. Apparently, these ships made poor minesweepers and were classified as submarine chasers later. From what I could determine, there were only two made at NBC and none of this class are known to still exist. It must have been some sight to see these floating down the Cumberland River on their way to the sea.
  7. Don't know if this was posted before. Just showed up on the development tracker....submitted June 26, 2018... Plan ^^^^ Just across from the fairgrounds. A great re-use of the property, but it seems like a small amount of apartments for such a (future) prime location. However, much of it is in the floodplain, so I suppose there are not many other options.

    I have no criticism of my hometown, Nashville, the town I was born in as was my father. I love it the way it is and the way it is growing up. It is a special city and always has been. It's music culture has been known around the world. I'll bet that if you asked people in other countries to name 10 American cities, Nashville would be on that list. And what the City is and is becoming is beyond comparison to any other city. From an urban development standpoint we have 20 @ ten to thirty story buildings under construction and another 16 or so that could start within the year. We have dense and unique neighborhoods like the Gulch and wonderful Midtown, both of which are unmatched in our peer Midwest and southern cities. I have traveled to all of the top 50 metro areas except San Diego and Grand Rapids and know that our Midtown is totally unique among second or third tier cities with its urban density and height, lively night life and cultural anchors such as Vanderbilt, Belmont, Centennial Park and the world famous Music Row. We don't have the four or five really tall towers that some of the peer cities have, but we match up building to building with those cities once you get below 500' and out number them significantly when you get to the 15 to 25 story range. And our economy is booming with a mad rush to locate in Music City by a diverse population of corporate HQs from the health care industry to the auto and tire industry to the birth of what could make us Wall Street II. There is a lot of hyperbole, but Nashville is a city of hyperbolics. We are number 1 and number 2 on so many lists. We are shortlisted continuously on so many searches and indeed, we often win out over all others. There is a lot of 'Nashville envy' on other boards and I detect a jealousy on the part of uninformed posters when they casually dismiss our boomtown status and chances for prizes like HQ2 and a World Cup host slot. When I see that, I brush it off and laugh and mostly take it as a complement in that they are looking at our unique model of what a city should be and see the shortcomings in their own hometown. I would like to see a 60 story building on the skyline, but if it doesn't happen, I will still know that this city is one of the great cities of the world. How many cities can honestly claim that title.
  10. And I thought ONE KVB (Mainland) had signed on an accounting firm, also. With the law firm occupying 22% of the building, the other firm might push current occupancy up to 30 to 33 % of the building. That sounds like a good start. I don't know how much you need to feel confident about filling it up once it's finished.

    Soccer in Nashville

    I would guess about 3 per car. I don't know if it includes on the street parking along Craighead, but I think it may provide several hundred additional spaces. I'm sure local businesses will sell parking spaces for a price and there will likely be shuttle busses from various locations. Edit; Paul ^^^^^ posted at the exact same time I did, so that's why we have duplicate info. His 3.5 per car is good info.

    Thompson Hotel in the Gulch - 12 Stories | 224 Rooms

    This has got to be one of my favorite recent projects. The way it curves to fit the street makes the Gulch an awesome and totally unique district. And I see where Atlanta wants to build their own 'Gulch' now.
