    Way to go, TECH! Success like this can’t be underestimated. It can eventually lead to enrollment growth and the development of better athletic facilities,.

    I like that canyon look - it gives downtown two distinct skylines.

    Is that where Maddox Hardware used to be?

    Has the Hilton Garden Inn and conference center broke ground yet? I think Target would work but I’d be happy to see Meijer set up shop.

    Didn’t the Hotel Indigo on Broadway convert to an aloft?

    Nashville International Airport

    Being able to process 400 arrivals an hour is not bad for a temporary solution. I’m guessing that would be dependent on it being fully staffed. I think the 787 carries considerably less passengers (quick look at the less-tha-reliable source, Wikipedia, says 242 - 335) so it should be an okay experience. Besides, if you’ve ever landed at LHR around 6:00 am you know that U.K. Border Patrol is not a pleasant experience at all.

    Austin’s original convention center hotel was only 800 rooms (Hilton). There is now a 1,200 room Fairmont connected to it, some 14-15 years later. Something more impressive than the current stuff being built will pop up at some point. Meeting planners still want big box hotels in which to acommodate convention attendees. It becomes such a nightmare to piece together large blocks of rooms when there are 500 here, 200 there, and 800 in another place.
  9. This just looks like a tiny hotel atop a disproportionately large garage. Guessing there is a level of Meeting rooms below the guestrooms.

    Maybe a Westin since there’s only one other in Nashville?

    I think this decor is going to go out of style very quickly. however, it certainly makes you feel as if you're "in the music" so I understand the concept.

    I wish we still had Cain-Sloan & Castner Knott. They’d eat Macy’s for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

    I’m glad to see Cookeville come into its own. It’s high on the list of places I want to move to (at some point). And, if you think no one in Nashville knows about it, you should see the faces of Memphians when it is mentioned. LOL Now if we could just get TECH out of the OVC and into something a bit more interesting, like the Southern Conference (the OVC has sucked since the TECH/Middle rivalry died).
  14. I feel like a caviar & bananas would be a good location for Dean and Deluca...

    Except those really long escalators in subway stations. I’ll walk a few steps but then stand to the side for the over-achievers. LOL
