  1. Vandy Stadium yes small is a unique looking stadium that could be cool but unfortunately built using cheap materials. Cover the steel with brick and morter. I agree with your two points, they need to replace the double wide in the sky they call a pressbox and replace it with a new pressbox/luxury suites running the whole length of the west grandstand and duplicate that on the east side so both sides match. Take out or build on top of the current east/west grandstands if needed to ensure it fit within the stadium and Natchez Trace on the west and the stadium and Hawkins Field/Memorial Gym on
  2. They actually knocked down/rebuilt the stadium a few years back but I do remember what it looked like. I honestly don't think the rebuild added many seats but could be wrong.
  3. Are you referring to the Horny Toad's? No way a stadium like Amon G. Carter fits in the footprint Vandy has to work with.
  4. But there used to be a ballpark on those grounds, what's changed? There looks to be plenty of room for an MLB ballpark and keep it off the Fort's grounds.
  5. Not ideal but better than in the burbs and some other places mentioned but has the Greer Stadium location been considered? It's just outside the interstate loop and if it were facing due north rather than southeast like Greer was you may get a good view of downtown if Fort Negley doesn't block it. I've never been to Greer so I have no ideal how steep a hill Fort Negley sits on and to know if it blocks the view of downtown. Also I think you would need to add interstate access using Chestnut St. or Hamilton Ave. for this site to work. Again it's not an ideal location but there are much worse
  6. I think this building is going to be on the list with One Nashville Place and Pinnacle for being Nashville's best looking buildings but lacks ten to fifteen stories from being something special.
  7. I've said it several times here, I don't understand why Montreal would ever even be considered ever again. Oh well, people's memories are short these days.
  8. That is true as well, at least that's the word on the street here. That's amphitheater...! I had no idea they were building that in Midcity. Not to lie but something that fancy beside Top Golf and a Dave and Busters, it may feel a bit out of place in that location. Something like that should go in downtown off Big Spring Park.
  9. Dang that took some time, what brought you to do all that? I haven't been over to the Huntsville sub forum in years. @ titanhog yes Huntsville has a lot of tech jobs, Cummings Research Park here in Huntsville is the second largest research and development area in the country behind only Silicon Valley and the fourth largest in the world.
  10. I understood what you meant that the interstates would remain from I-440 and Briley out but what I'm saying you're creating a traffic nightmare from I-440 and Briley in. It would be gridlock from intersection to intersection till you got to the interstate loop. Don't handcuff Downtown for the sake of "Urbanism," Nashville's not New York, Chicago or some European city. Nashville is and always will to be a car concentric city until the time comes that Scotty can beam us up. Even when or if Nashville gets some form of a transit system Nashville will remain a car concentric city. I'd a
  11. Great plan if you want Nashville to be an even more of a traffic nightmare. Sorry to be negative but just telling you what would happen. The only Interstate I could see feasibly (maybe) going away without creating all Hell breaking loose on Nashville traffic would be what was I-265 if you reroute I-65 back where it was and still should be on the east side of the loop. I know I still take the east side of the loop when I'm heading up north despite what the road signs tell me . There's a saying I've heard; "architects don't care if it works as long as it looks good and engineers don't care i
  12. Can someone remind me what the huge hole is? That's 505 or Palmer Lake kind of depth. Is that part of Nashville Yards?
  13. SoBro as it sits now surpasses downtown Birmingham today. Birmingham has 6 buildings over 300', 12 over 250' and 454' is her tallest.
  14. This question may not be the proper place but Batman's been talked about here. Anyone know if it's true when the Batman building was planned South Central Bell or Bell South (which ever name they went by at the time) planned on the tower's height to be 615' in honor of the 615 area code but the finished product turned out 2' taller?
  15. This may be a pipe dream too, but I had a thought a couple weeks along the lines MLBrumby's has been preaching about moving it's location. Rather than relocating it in some far off land relocate it in its current location but under ground. One way in one way out or only accessible through the underground utility tunnels that I'm sure are already there. It would be secure from future attacks being that it's underground and a lot less accessible furthering it's protection and the equipment inside wouldn't have to be relocated/rerouted. AT&T could sale air rights above (I think "Air Right
