    2019 Predictions

    Economists have predicted nine of the last five recessions.
  2. Knoxville Market Square is a little gem.

    Because I and perhaps one other act as token dissidents who challenge assumptions which are tossed out as neutral-givens, such as alternative = light rail. How can you not see this ?

    How close are we to being a "real" city?

    You used to be able to shop on Orange Ave. As late as the 90’s it was a vibrant stretch. There were even one or two shopping arcades.

    Offhand, I’d guess that every item on this impressive list will be built and be completed, or nearly so by 2021.
  7. From architecture’s bleakest era.
  8. Has it been confirmed that Honeywell is likely landing here ?

    I’d love too. But then I’d have to tell you to get a life.

    Nashville Bits and Pieces

    Capsule review: Columbus’ 21.5 minutes nothing to complain about. Nashville’s 24.3 minutes is “Meh, difference nothing to write home about. Accordingly, Nashvillians have nothing to complain about. What about people without cars ? Well, you have buses. “But the buses suck.” Well, a fraction of $9.4 million went to doubling Columbus’ high-frequency routes and expanding routes. And some of you voted for $9 billion.

    I can believe it. It’s like people who can’t wait to move to NYC, then can’t wait to get out.

    Turns out that the Rays wanted to bilk Tampans. Good riddance and let them bilk Portlanders. Tampa Water Street is going to have a greater short-term impact on its city than Amazon will have on its selected cities.

    Des Moines average commute time is 18.3 minutes and I’ll bet they gripe about traffic. Nashville seems to agree with me that you don’t need to spend $9 billion on transit improvements when $9 million will do just fine.

    I do not get the geography argument. If Nashvillians are closer to work, why the longer commute time. Conversely, if Columbusites are farther from work, why the shorter commute time ?
