  1. Nice cake! Would have loved to swing by this month to hear about some of these new developments, but my flight from Ft. Lauderdale didn't get into Nashville until the wee hours of the morning on Saturday.
  2. The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    I think that's a fair enough take. Again, I will definitely support the proposal and I've already signed the petition. I don't want to see this effort tanked just because some of us feel that West Nashville is underserved. I just want to see a bit more analysis of what factored into the decision-making process for routes. The preliminary plans sort of gave us an expectation that it would go further down Charlotte Pike, but I will suck it up and deal with it if extending it further there makes less sense right now. It appears that there will be public meetings for each corridor. So, I will address my concerns at that time.
  3. The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    There seems to be a fair number of used car lots, light industrial, older retail, and other underdeveloped lots ripe for redevelopment along and near the Charlotte corridor to my eye. Personally, I would like to see that entire shopping center at Morrow Road redeveloped at some point. I also think that traffic situation can be problematic particularly when there's an accident or construction along I-40. That said, I understand if the current density and bus ridership make the corridor a less attractive option than the proposed longer lines in other corridors. I simply would like to see it compared to the density, single-family homes, etc. in other areas so I have a better understanding of why the area will be underserved in this plan.
  4. The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    Is the current density of the Charlotte Pike corridor to White Bridge that much lower than the far reaches of the light rail lines through other corridors? I would love to see a comparison. I will support the plan regardless, but I am a bit disappointed to see that West Nashville will be so underserved given the current growth taking place along Charlotte Pike. I don't see the value in extending it to Nashville West at the moment, but not extending it to White Bridge seems like a missed opportunity to me and is somewhat visually jarring even just looking at the map. For me personally, it's a bit disheartening to have pushed for a better transit system for years and committed to living in a close-in Nashville neighborhood only to see that the first major viable plan will essentially ignore your burgeoning area. So, I'll be supporting a line that will likely end up being impractical for me to frequently use unless I move.
  5. Buckingham Gulch Tower 38 Floors|450+ Feet |Proposed 2019

    Start of proposed Gulch project placed on indefinite hold
  6. Since we're not really getting much of a crown, I think it would help if the glass was a different tint than the blue that's been so common in the recent SoBro towers. Is there a reason why so many of these towers have a similar tint?
  7. Bridgestone HQ 30 stories - 460' | Retail.U/C

    It looked like they were testing the Predators color scheme and Christmas colors (green and red) for a brief period last night. I know we were initially a little worried about the lighting scheme, but I must say that I was quite impressed with how great the lighting looked from Ascend Amphitheater last night.
  8. 505 CST - 545 feet - 45 Floors - U/C

    I saw the lights changing colors on one of the corners last night from a concert at Ascend Amphitheater. It looked like they were alternating between red, white, and blue.
  9. West End/Mid Town/Music Row/Vandy Projects

    That looks fantastic! It would be a welcomed addition to West End Avenue.
  10. Yes, we seem to be on the path to building good core density without much height. This proposal looks great, but I definitely hoped we would get a tall tower or two from this one.
  11. Bonnaroo 2017

    I'm not going this year, but I hope everyone has a fun and safe time.
  12. IKEA to Nashville

    I'm very happy to see that IKEA chose Davidson County as well. This is great news for the Antioch area.
  13. Repurposed/revitalized historical buildings in Nashville

    This looks great. I would love to see more entertainment options like this downtown.
  14. This is such an exciting and transformative project for Nashville. I don't remember when I've been so excited about a major project.
