  1. The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    You vote on it when you elect your State Senators and Representatives as this is a state project.
  2. More Accolades for Nashville

    All of these list are very subjective. I saw this several months ago and just laughed.

    Thanks Pete! Great to have you on board.
  4. Wooden Skyscrapers

    I saw an exhibit at the National Building Museum in DC and the new technology for wood construction is amazing. Some of the new composite wood material has a tensile strength greater than steel and will not burn or melt as fast as steel does. Pretty amazing stuff.
  5. West End/Mid Town/Music Row/Vandy Projects

    Good Riddance. I hate JITB! Just think outside the Box (hmm heard that somewhere) but it could be that Graduate may be taking the site for a larger footprint.
  6. The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    Back on topic before the paddle is brought out folks. Take it to the Coffee House This is the Transit thread!
  7. Hypocrites. It was OK for them when Portland brew opened, but heaven forbid anything else. The ding dongs want it their way with no changes when in fact they were the ones that came in and changed it to start with.
  8. The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    Sounds like they will not be around for long or someone is skimming billions from the profits.
  9. Not sure Todd, I was wondering about the same thing. One option would be to use the point of the property to enhance and get better access to the parcel on the other side of the Greenway or work with Metro and move the Greenway at the owners expense.
  10. CBD/SoBro/RutledgeHill/Rolling Mill Hill Projects

    The current land owner is a developer himself and a poster on the forum. Not seeing it happen, however we could get surprised, but I doubt it. Per MDHA, this lot will not be developed for a while. Sorry for all the posting and reposting. Dug a hole and couldn't get out so I reposted.

    Report post "I know it's several years down the road, but when Asurion vacates their current downtown HQ at 300 2nd Ave. South and 105 Molloy for their new Gateway Gulch campus, I will be very curious about what landlord Michael Hayes might have planned for those structures, along with 105 Molloy, where XO Communications is currently located. All three of those properties make up the entire block encompassed by 1st and 2nd Avenues on east and west, and Molloy and KVB on north and south. Obviously, this is prime real estate. I could envision the possibility of the front 2 and 1 story warehouse strip (where XO Communications currently resides), which was built in 1939, coming down, and a thin 20 story tower of some sort going there, facing 1st Ave. and Ascend Amphitheater. That way, the other two structures--which were each originally built in 1928 and massively refurbished for the Asurion lease--could be retained and utilized for a new tenant. Or, I could see all three coming down eventually to make way for something even more stout. And, of course, we all have dreams about the massive block just to the west that is currently a surface lot. I still believe that could be home to one of our big boys (maybe two!) in the future. Thoughts?" I do not see these buildings coming down after all the money that has been spent upgrading the buildings and adding floors. I really would hate to see these come down.

    First and KVB has three options at this time. One is the CB Ragland building that houses XO communications and I have heard nothing about anything going there. Two is the parking lot that was just completed at the SE corner, which is owner by MDHA. I do know of a certain individual that is interested in this lot, but nothing will happen here until the rest of RMH is totally built out, and Asurian makes the move to the Gulch. Three is the site of the One World Hotel project, that I hear differing things about. One is the project is dead and two is the project still has legs. That was or is depending on that POV would be 40 stories. So many times people get confused, especially if they do not live here or don't follow it as closely as some of us. At this point in time I even get confused or forget just because of the sheer numbers of projects that have been finished, proposed, rumored, proposed and scraped, etc.

    Correct, those are the new renderings for the project and is 26, not 20 floors with a couple of additional buildings. There is a 20 story hotel proposed for the old Listening Room site and another 18 story hotel at 1st Ave behind acme feed, not to mention the 40 or 45 story on 1st between Demonbreun and the pedstrian bridge, so that is 4 large projects sort of along the river south of Broad. The 20 story hotel they are talking about may be the one at the listening room site which will be a Hyatt brand of some sort.
  14. East Nashville/Inglewood/Madison/Donelson/Hermitage/Old Hickory

    The listing on loop net states a development opportunity, so it could be either, or. Its an area that could be listed as both as the boundaries are not that clear.
