  1. The Pinnacle site:



    Can we please get some mixed-use development going here. Anyone heard any news?


    This parking lot across from the Schermerhorn is an ideal spot for bottom floor cafes and restaurants with outdoor seating. Nashville has such a tremendous asset with the pedestrian bridge, any developers with some vision or at least a modicum of brains could really get things moving in this area.


  2. Did anyone else see the story on intown condo and loft living on News Channel 5 at six o'clock? They reported that the SigT would start construction later this summer and that the project was one third "sold."

    It was an interesting look at a lot of the projects around town (the Icon is taking forever) with lots of free press for Tony G whose big V show condo looked like it was collecting some water on the balcony despite two drains. Perhaps he should have taken a quick peek-a-roo before showing it off to the news audience.

  3. There's a new 3/4 view rendering of the Rhythm/Music Row tower (at least I hadn't seen it) which shows a significant set back of the tower portion that I was not aware of. You can catch a brief glimpse of the rendering while the webpage loads, rhythmnashville. Or you can see it in an ad in the real estate section of today's City Paper.

    I think it looks decent but does anyone have any idea what the two window-like sections flanking the central window over the main street-level entrance are? In the plan, it looks like it's clad in shutters but in the overhead rendering it looks like some brown marble-like surface or maybe jello-pudding.

  4. According to a Wikipedia article, Highest income counties in the U.S., 2000 census figures rank Williamson County as the 27th wealthiest per capita in the U.S. The only county in the state to place in the top 100. I've heard it placed in the top 10 or so more recently but I can't offer up any sources. Another google search listed Belle Meade as the 27th (coincidence?) richest "place" in the U.S. regardless of population. With an average income of $104,908 (!) and a population of 2,943. That's certainly more impressive, statistically speaking than, say, #3 Baker, Missouri, income $182,000 pop. 5.

  5. Walked and drove around town yesterday and today. Here's a few photos.


    I think he was getting a ticket for that stupid-ass hat.


    HG Hill market was really busy around 1:00 or so yesterday. I took this while stuck in traffic around 3:30.




    The Pentagon, er, the Icon (this thing is gonna be huge)


    Nissan headquarters underway. Kind of an interesting project with the three immense concrete pylon things and the steel frame going up in between. I got a better look at it this morning on northbound 65.


    Here's some photos of the Brownstones in Franklin, I think I remember somebody expressing some interest regarding those.

    Looking down 2nd ave back towards downtown.


    From the same corner looking the other way, one of many very pretty streets in Franktown, Tenny.









    These sit directly across Church St.


  6. ok, not trying to copy smeagolsfree or anything, but uh....here is today...

    Great job, don't worry about stepping on anyone's toes, new pictures are always welcome. I really enjoy the high up views of the Sun Trust (I've lamented the loss of the Viridian Cam in order to keep tabs on this one) and the view of Broadway looking towards the river, but ...

    now just imagine the Westin...


    No thanks

  7. Great job smeagols, thanks for the pictures, too. I think I remember reading that the developer of the Utopia didn't really have the financial muscle to pull it off at the time, so maybe they've kind of retreated to try and secure some more credit, collateral and whatever other 'c' words are needed to pull off such a project.

    Where is Glass Factory being built?

    That is Phase III of the Wedgewood Park loft/condo development at the corner of 8th ave. and Wedgewood, you know the one that looks like a cheesy Hollywood Western lot.

  8. That building is going to have a massive effect on that corner. It is past the first level now and it looks as if level two will start rising soon.

    On another note, the Adelicia is really starting to rise along with the SunTrust and the Encore. All will be very visible from the interstate very soon. 1101 eighteenth is topped out as are the dorms at Vandy. One of the build outs from Vandy that is in the 11, 12 story range is now very evident from I440. The West End, I think has topped as well or is very close. The Glass factory is well under way and the Belle Meade theater project has a lot if work going on now. The property across from the Theater is now roped off and is about ready for construction. I know there is a Publix going in there and I think there may be an office component. Someone help me out here. Bristol on West End is starting to finish up. Harrison Square 1st phase completed and the second phase are up to 3 out of I think 4 stories. Work continues across the street at The District. 5th and Main has a huge hole and will start rising above street level soon. East End Lofts have topped at 4 and are in the completion stages. Hampton Inn is topped and brick is going on now.

    Pictures are worth a thousand words so somebody get this man a camera!

  9. Wow, that's just way too much to take in for li'l ol' Murfreesboro. How 'bout they just demolish everything outside Old Fort Parkway, Main St, Rutherford and start over with a plan. :whistling: Hey, same goes for most of Nashville.

    They could start by making the parking spaces downtown parallel and building a garage a la downtown Franklin (I couldn't find a damn space this morning so I could get a cup of coffee before class) so that the square doesn't consist of the courthouse surrounded by parking, access street, parking, sidewalk, parking, street, parking, buildings.

  10. Glad to know one of my favorite buildings on Broadway is about to see new life.

    From nashville.bizjournals.com

    A pair of Georgia developers are spearheading a condominium project on Lower Broadway that could revitalize one of the shabbiest stretches in the downtown tourist district. Gene Gilbert, of Atlanta, and Ansley Williams, of Savannah, are heading up a group that recently bought a building at 308 Broadway and a surface parking lot at 310 Broadway for $1.4 million.

    Uh oh, here we go again.

    I wonder what they paid per square foot as compared to what Barber paid for the Westin property?

    Can't wait to see what, if anything, they have planned.

    Gene Gilbert and Ansley Williams of Music City Suites

    Love that duster!
