  1. I agree with your thought about universities. I’ve concluded that most TN universities are just beginning to approach their coming out age/maturity. Most offerings have been necessity-driven basics and, let’s be honest, if they’re public universities they’ve been hampered by politicians and having to play second fiddle to UTK and it’s football fantasies. A few years ago when the TN Board of Regents shifted focus to community colleges and technical schools, it gave the TBR universities the autonomy they needed to brand themselves. I really think this will take time and demand. Local business w
  2. Star and diamond ratings are mostly assurance that a hotel has, at least, the capability of providing a minimal level of service. Loews will be the market leader when it opens, the brand has a strong delivery reputation in the upper upscale segment. I don't think the market will command the common sought after luxury brands for a while.
  3. Wonder why the Governor likes TECH so much? He went to Auburn so it’s not like he’s tied to Cookeville. Don’t get me wrong, the investment in TECH makes me happy. When I was in school no new buildings were built because MTSU and UTK were getting all the money.
  4. Anyone know which airline will move to Concourse D? Maybe Delta? They're supposed to open a new Sky Club in 2020 but you'd never know it by looking around the current one. Just something I noticed.
  5. I have noticed Concourse D on the drive after arriving. The thing that stands out to me is how nice D looks compared to the other concourses. I am sure the rest will get an update but D looks like it be a pleasure to use while the rest are just so-so. I fly a lot for work so I'm in and out of BNA a lot.
  6. It is a handsome facade and those details are missing in so many projects in Nashville. Developers should take note.
  7. Here’s a street view of the Apple store in downtown Portland. The Nashville store may look similar. I’d suspect Microsoft to follow as they’re both in downtown PDX.
  8. a 35-floor one in downtown and another 25-floor on on the east bank. Name them all accordingly: West, Downtown, and East. Just need someone who wants to fund it. The tiered crown (can it be considered a crown?) would look nice poking out of downtown's skyline.
  9. Totally agree with it adding to our hotel game here in Nashville. Its the fun ones that people remember. The boring corporate hotels, unless they have exceptional service, are completely forgettable.
  10. It looks to be designed for the female traveler. I don’t think many guys are going to like the decor and finishes. It’s cool for what it is though.
  11. Found this beauty in Hounslow just outside London (near Heathrow). I think it is a local government building. Would be cool to see something like this in Nashville.
  12. Kroger on 8th. I think we can consider that “downtown” now.
  13. The DGX reminds me of a Tesco express or Sainsburys local in the UK but with probably less focus on meal prep or pre-made meals. So cool to see these stores opening.
  14. Good deal for Belmont. I wonder how private school students will react to starting at the bottom of the food chain within all these hotels upon graduation? College hospitality graduates are woefully unprepared for the workforce and they can sometimes also overestimate their worth. The expectation is that they should walk into a new career with a senior leadership role but reality means the gross majority of them will be working shifts at the front desk to learn what really happens in the industry. Putting it in the biz school is a good choice though because today's hospitality industry is more
