  1. Project Thread/New Construction/Photo du jour/Const. CAMs

    Well, there really weren’t any sports broadcast before Batman. Maybe occasionally from inside Vanderbilt Gym, but that’s about it.
  2. Project Thread/New Construction/Photo du jour/Const. CAMs

    I’ve never really noticed the side with the recessed windows. I guess I’ve always thought (in my minds eye) the whole building had the flush windows like on the right side of this picture. I wonder what made them do it differently. Its funny the things you don’t notice in a city until something gives you a reason to look.
  3. HOPES, WISHES, AND PREDICTIONS FOR THE NEW YEAR

    Hope- More development focus along the corridors instead of the interior neighborhoods. Wish(dream)- Return of Amtrak with interstate connections. Prediction- “Introducing YOUR 2018 Stanley Cup Champion Nashviiiiiiiiile Predatorrrrrrs!!!”
  4. More Accolades for Nashville

    There is no doubt in my mind that we now have an MLS team as a direct result of the Preds cup run. The latter would not have happened without the former.

    Top golf washes out the entire night view from all points north, even to the naked eye. It’s VERY bright from everywhere. All those houses along Fern Ave et all are probably pissed.
  6. Project Thread/New Construction/Photo du jour/Const. CAMs

    No thanks. I like my office in this location just fine.
  7. Project Thread/New Construction/Photo du jour/Const. CAMs

    I’m a couple of days late here, but this was Wednesday morning at the office. I liked the cloud cover and snapped a photo. I also thought it may be a perspective some of you may not often see.
  8. I’m not sure what you mean by flashy, but I’ve seen quite a few H&M stores in major cities around the country and this seems on par to me.
  9. Soccer in Nashville

    Honestly, they have a really attractive bid. I would hate to have been on that decision making board. If there weren’t 150 million reasons not to, I would like to see them go ahead with the first 3 now.
  10. Repurposed/revitalized historical buildings in Nashville

    I was in the last class to graduate from this school, then known as Cole Annex. It was a 3rd & 4th grade school. When my 3rd grade class moved to 4th, they didn’t bring in another 3rd grade class. I watched the Challenger shuttle explode on live tv while in class at this school. I stood outside in sub freezing temperatures during a bomb threat, while the janitor went inside to get our coats. I saw plaster falling from the ceiling in classrooms. It was shuttered for several years after that. It came back to life as something a few years later with all new windows and I assume a massive renovation.
  11. MSA South - Williamson & Rutherford Counties

    I don’t think $200/month is all that outrageous. I pay $100/month for a family pass to the Gallatin Rd YMCA. It also includes childcare, which is awesome. The Y is decent, but if the facility was top notch, and amenities were even nicer, I can see spending that.
  12. The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    Oh man, I’ve had a 1.5 hour commute before. That was for the birds. I’m sure others have had worse. I don’t miss those days. I had a coworker in San Jose who commuted from Sacramento every day. That’s about like commuting to Nashville from Chattanooga, in rush hour traffic I now have the shortest commute I’ve ever had in my life. About 3/4 of a mile. The sad irony is that my job now is to get in a truck and drive all day. I only go to the office about once or twice a week. Oh those lucky few who get to live above or next door to a storefront they own.
  13. That’s about the last thing I would want built in Nashville. What an eyesore. It looks like something drawn in a high school art class.
  14. East Nashville/Inglewood/Madison/Donelson/Hermitage/Old Hickory

    Would love to grab the wood from a couple of those lanes if they are going to demo.
  15. I also saw it this weekend, and it appeared to me that the were repairing the original windows. If that’s what’s actually happening, that is a huge relief. I figured the first thing they would do is replace those gorgeous windows with some new bland version. I sure hope that’s the case.
