  1. Another one of those silly metrics to rank a city by, but still interesting. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-10-18/nashville-s-million-dollar-homes-are-shrinking-fastest-in-u-s?utm_campaign=news&utm_medium=bd&utm_source=applenews
  2. Maybe I need to look again. My comment was based on a knee-jerk reaction as I was driving past. I know that I can miss the details at 35mph.
  3. You hit it spot on. I did NOT enjoy the article. But the comments were hilarious!
  4. I’m beginning to think we are approaching this whole traffic reduction idea in the wrong way. Every time I sit in traffic on the interstate, I look around and notice an abundance of semi trucks. They are big, slow, and less maneuverable. They are a danger to us, and even more so, we are a danger to them. Perhaps, we create a dedicated, barrier controlled, center lane for semi-trucks only. Electrify that roadbed, so they have constant power for electrical drive systems. Charge per hour. Apply autonomous measure so they can self drive. You would free up a lot of the “normal” lanes of traffic, increase flow, reduce fatalities and lawsuits. You would essentially create a road train. This could essentially do a 180 to freight operations making rail freight less necessary. That could free up rail tracks that could be used for transit. I believe it would be much easier to implement to commercial trucking than to the personal vehicle. There is already a high level of standardization in trucking. There would also be great savings potential for freight companies as well as increased speed, less lawsuits, and possibly better logistic opportunities. There also wouldn’t be as much “freedom/rights” resistance. Just a thought experiment.
  5. How many parking spots will this be? I feel like this could require a shuttle just for the garage. In all seriousness, if they had included some robotics in this, I feel like this could house every car in Nashville.
  6. Absolutely love this shot. Perfect timing at dusk.
  7. I talked to the PM on this job yesterday. He said they are already behind schedule as they are having a difficult time getting through the rock. He said they continue to break chisels and bits trying to get through the surface.
  8. I’ve long forgotten the politics behind it, but there was a short run during those turbulent years where I found myself at nashvillecharrette.com. I don’t remember much about the “why’s”, but I do remember dropping off of UP for a short while, in favor of that site. But that webpage is long gone.
  9. I’m biased, but I’m not sure I would exactly call it “fake”. I haven’t seen it in person, but I would guess that the brick is most definitely real. Was it laid by brick mason’s? Obviously not. But it’s most likely real brick, albeit slivers of brick, but real brick in precast panels. It is possible that it’s red concrete in a brick patterned mold, but I can’t tell from the picture Beats the hell out of stucco, or gfrc.
  10. Is this really even a big catch? They don’t have an assembly plant in North America. I’m pretty sure they don’t even build cars anymore. I think they just take models from other auto makers and re-badge them. I’m not sure that’s 100% accurate, but honestly, when is the last time you remember seeing a Mitsubishi on the road that turned your head? When I first saw the headlines and the excitement over it, I assumed it was Mitsubishi Heavy Industries. Now that would have been a huge catch. Then I found out it was a nearly defunct auto “maker”, and I was severely disappointed. Edit: Just looked into this and apparently the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance is one of the worlds larger automakers. So they are probably just trying to move closer to Nissan.
  11. Sorry I don’t have any pictures to share, but I just made my first visit to NYC’s Highline. That thing is magnificent! It’s a very tranquil retreat from the chaos of street level in Manhattan. We walked it from 14th up to Hudson Yards and the Vessel. It was one of my favorite parts of the trip.
  12. I heard from a reliable source this will be 42 floors. I’m not sure if that included 2 floors beneath, but just what I was told.
