  1. I clicked on this and saw that photo and had to pause a moment before realizing it's Midtown, not downtown.
  2. Saw population estimates recently showing Nashville with greater population than Detroit.
  3. Thought I'd start a new thread because I'm terrible at posting pictures. I didn't want to mess up an existing thread with my mistakes. And it's so time consuming. But I did a little car tour of town yesterday and didn't realize I took 200 pics. I'll try to post some later when I can find any I might have missed. Lots of houses being built in Southside on both sides of Main. Here are a few of the ones under 7mb which is the limit for me to attach here. I'm sure there's a better way. Sorry the last pic is of one of the new dorm buildings at UTC. None of the pics I took of that one turned out well. I don't know the names of a lot of these. Many of the buildings under construction have at least 2 photos. From my car, it was not easy to get good angles. This is in the reverse order of my tour, starting at North Shore and ending at Southside near Chattanooga Market and Findley Stadium on Chestnut. Will try to label them after I figure out what I'm doing.
  4. My guess it it's going to the highest bidder. Great billboard space. Perhaps one of the record labels.
  5. Believe the sign. Experience tells me not to take the word of a reporter, especially when it comes to numbers/figures related to a construction project. William Williams and a handful of others notwithstanding, rarely do they get all the facts straight. I've often seen billion dollar projects described as "million dollar". And floor counts for buildings proposed in Nashville are often misreported.

    I don't dislike that building. The basic architecture is actually attractive, but it's nothing remarkable. Conveniently located and just good infill.
  7. Nashville International Airport

    If I'm remembering correctly, that garage is also 4-5 floors tall. So that tower will be about 17-19 stories tall. If I'm remembering correctly, that garage is also 4-5 floors tall. So that tower will be about 17-19 stories tall. What is the brand (flag)?
  8. The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    I can vouch for how much this is needed. I drive that route several times a year and I can tell you the stretch from I-40 to the river sucks. It's 2-lane and has virtually no turn lanes. It has been piecemeal maintained for the past twenty years. The stretch from Gallatin to Portland in Sumner is complete, and it's a nice divided (not limited access) four-lane. Planning is underway with construction to begin soon on the leg from the bypass around Portland to the northwest to a new exit underway at I-65 just south of the Ky line. The stretch south of Gallatin to the river is in constant construction, but it was a mess the last time I drove through there. Glad to learn the Wilson County leg is now getting done. When you get to Lebanon (Hwy 70) south to I-40 and continued south to I-840 it's very nice. It's like the stretch north of Gallatin. That said, I read the description of the Wilson Co. stretch and did not see that it will be a divided roadway. Believe they said median with turn lanes (that may mean divided).
  9. JW Marriott - 385' - 34 Floors - topped out

    Could be! There's something going on like that at the top. They just might be going full Pez dispenser after all. And really! I realize it's on a hill, but that has got to be 400'+. Where did the 385' figure come from? Call me skeptical.
  10. Boomerang in The Nations to break ground this summer. Mixed-use with 8 condo residences and ground retail at Centennial and 54th. A late summer groundbreaking is being eyed for a mixed-used development to be located near the now-underway Silo Bend in The Nations. Centennial Partners V LLC, overseen by Nashville-based developer Nathan Weinberg, will undertake what will be called Boomerang at 5403 Centennial Blvd.
  11. MSA South - Williamson & Rutherford Counties

    Fresh Hospitality, restaurant company with over a dozen brands, including Vui's Kitchen, Biscuit Love and Tazikis, plans Liberty Station, a 57,000 commercial project with 18,000 retail/restaurant, 25,000 office and a branch for Liberty Financial at the SE corner of Carothers and Liberty in Franklin. Plans before city review board.
  12. Nashville College & University Expansion

    Belmont to acquire Franklin's O'More College of Design.
  13. CBD/SoBro/RutledgeHill/Rolling Mill Hill Projects

    There is a dumpy low building that fronts 1st Avenue, adjacent to the Asurion building in the same block. Could be talking about that site.
  14. CBD/SoBro/RutledgeHill/Rolling Mill Hill Projects

    Yes, there's a whole thread for it.
