  1. Nashville Bits and Pieces

    My goodness that was a lengthy read!
  2. 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.
  4. This just looks like a tiny hotel atop a disproportionately large garage. Guessing there is a level of Meeting rooms below the guestrooms.
  5. Nashville International Airport

    Maybe a Westin since there’s only one other in Nashville?
  6. Cambria Suites Hotel|255 Room|19 Stories|200 feet

    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.
  8. Cookeville News

    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).
  9. I feel like a caviar & bananas would be a good location for Dean and Deluca...
  10. Nashville International Airport

    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
  11. Scary that Nashville's "College Population" is so low. I don't think the "Tech Labor Force" score is any big shocker. Overall I would say Nashville is in pretty good company in these rankings - aside from Newark (which benefits from proximity to NYC) these are top-tier American cities.
  12. CBD/SoBro/RutledgeHill/Rolling Mill Hill Projects

    Well that Hampton Inn addition doesn’t look too bad. It kind of balances the building when you see it from this angle. I’m sure they wish they had 200 more rooms but they’re rather large for a Hampton Inn. The biggest is in Berlin (Alexanderplatz) and it is just shy of 400 rooms.
  13. This looks much more stylish than anything else built recently. Is Nashville design turning a corner? It really should be 10 floors taller, I am thinking people will want to be in this tower and it might fill up rather quickly.

    I liked it when all those trees had twinkling lights strung through them (they may still have them). It made for a festive atmosphere all year long. Of course that may have just been a 1990’s fad but I liked it. LOL
