  1. West End/Mid Town/Music Row/Vandy Projects

    Appears to be. If he is, he won't hold on long b/c that's a really steep price. Incidentally, I used to go to doctors there when I was at Vandy for allergy shots.

    Is that a red tower crane at the Embassy Suites site?
  3. Project Thread/New Construction/Photo du jour/Const. CAMs

    Too far away. And the hill at 8th avenue will obscure much of it. Standing on the bridge at its apex, you'll be able to see all the buildings mentioned. But at that point, the gap between north/south of Broadway isn't as pronounced as it is from farther away. As noted, the best chance of narrowing that gap will come from 5&Broad. You can imagine how much the apartment building will affect it by looking at the location of the Bridgestone "radio antenna" and the zebra Renaissance. So it will loom over where the dark addition of the Nashville Bridge Co. building is in the photo to about the same height as the zebra.

    Between the ATT ("Batman") tower and the zebra Renaissance hotel tower will be an office tower under construction. And to zebra's immediate left will be an apartment tower (also u/c). From this vantage you will not be able to see much of zebra. I don't think you'll be able to see much (if any) of the new Hyatt (under construction), which would be in a line of view (blocked in the photo) by the white, 4-story building adjacent to the bridge (on this side). There is a long sign on pilings atop that building. From this p.o.v. you might be able to see the (to be built) Embassy Suites tower which should peak out above the top portion of the metal framework of the bridge. So some filling in, but there will still be the gap because that's Broadway.
  5. Nashville College & University Expansion

    I don't recall seeing this before. Lipscomb University plans a new building and parking garage for their College of Business, enabled by a large anonymous gift of $23M The future building will be located within a pocket of the northern segment of the Lipscomb campus framed by Belmont Boulevard on the west, Grandview Drive on the north and Rosemont Avenue on the east.
  6. CBD/SoBro/RutledgeHill/Rolling Mill Hill Projects

    Activity (construction trailer) reported on the site of the LC residential project on 3rd Avenue South. Columbus-based Lifestyle Communities now has a construction trailer on the site on which previous reports had the company prepping for a 10-story building. Lifestyle Communities envisions that building for one of two sites that span about 2.3 acres combined and that are located on either side of Third Avenue.
  7. The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    Have any Pro groups even attempted to tie passage of the plan to Amazon? Seems the whole possibility is dead if it's defeated.

    It passed. Sunday sales could happen by the end of the month.
  9. The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    Where in Dallas is that? Stemmons? I-35? LBJ? If that's LBJ, then that was taken before the Toll Express lanes were put in. I rode on that for the first time not long ago.
  10. Nashville Bits and Pieces

    Yikes!! I actually know what this means. Atlanta gets knocked for its fakeness. So does its little sister. I remember when it seemed everyone in Nashville said, "We (as if it had been mutually discussed and agreed) don't want to be the next Atlanta." So when was the last time anyone heard that said? None of these developments are novel to Nashville; at least a dozen people told me “Nashville feels like Austin, 10 years ago.” But that decade is telling: Austin’s ghost has largely been bulldozed and built over with box condos. Nashville’s is still just visible enough to haunt it.

    Nice shot. Now get to work on the Hensler, SAP, and Embassy towers. Finish up the stuff just starting, and "BOOM"!

    Fascinating to me. I once knew a man who owned part of Gray Knox marble company which supplied the sheathing for the building. He says he was very involved in the placement of the pilasters and one toppled and fell on top of his leg. He was 22 when that happened and had a limp the rest of his life. Before this project he managed the marble placement at the P.O. in Ft. Worth which used the same basic floor plan. That one has a row of beautiful longhorns along the top ornamentation.
