  1. Canopy is something high that provides shade to everything below right? So this has to be tall? I mean, it's in it's name, don't lie to us Hilton!!!

    Nashville, as MLB Expansion Market

    I don't know if it would. With the money already spent on First Tennessee Park, and the fact that it cannot be expanded, I'd say the taxpayers would have a tough time ponying up for an even more expensive park. Plus, what would happen to First Tennessee Park? I really don't see Nashville getting an MLB team in the next 10 years, even if the MLS deal fails (fingers crossed it won't). Add to that the future of Nissan Stadium and Bridgestone, and it really looks unlikely. The fact that the commissioner listed Nashville without us bidding speaks VOLUMES of how well this city is perceived on a national scale though. Turning down possible professional teams isn't necessarily a bad problem to have.

    I love their commercials. Didn't know they even had brick and mortar stores.

    That is good information, but part of the reason that people live 20+ miles away is due to housing affordability. It's cheaper for someone to live in places like Antioch or Murfreesboro and commute into downtown. If we could get a viable mass transit plan in place, I believe that dedicated parking structures would be a much less attractive thing for developers to build. Trust me, I'd love to see other things than garages built downtown.
  5. To be fair, what Nashville has been putting out as country for the past decade or two isn't really country. Florida Georgia Line is more like a southern Nickelback. And I mean that with the upmost disrespect to both groups.

    While I'd love for us to not need parking garages in our urban areas, the fact is, Nashville has no good form of public transportation, so the majority travel by car. You make it hard to park and downtown gets less accessable, and revenues/tax dollars go down. What kind of risk are you taking by limiting parking in hopes that people begin to see the light of public transportation? Is it short sighted? Maybe, but mass transit is unfortunately a long way away from happening in Nashville. I just can't agree that they are dead spaces when they do have an actual, functional use at this point in time in Nashville. It doesn't mean I like them however, they're a necessary evil, if you will.

    Nashville Bits and Pieces

    I've noticed that Nashville has been the site of some auto manufacturers press releases of their vehicles. And not just Nissan. https://www.motortrend.ca/en/news/2019-lexus-es-first-drive-review/ https://www.motortrend.com/cars/mercedes-benz/e-class/2018/2018-mercedes-amg-e-63-s-review/ It's interesting that these luxury car companies are choosing Nashville for this. Now granted the AMG E63 was probably more due to the proximity of the track by the Corvette plant in Bowling Green, but they sure love to take pictures of the cars around SoBro.

    I'm definitely with you on hoping they'll add some kind of ground floor activation, but I wouldn't say it'll be dead space if it's just a parking garage. A 2,280 space garage is a very useful thing to have. Parking is going to be at a premium with more and more lots being snatched up by all these developments. But yeah, it would be a more efficient use of space if it was multi use. I really like the parking garage in downtown Chattanooga that has a climbing gym and store in it, not to mention the cool climbing wall on the side of it. And it has a bus pull through and bike rental stations inside. Chattanooga, even though they are smaller, can really teach Nashville some things about making downtown more pedestrian friendly.

    Come, enjoy being eaten alive by mosquitoes at The Shay! But seriously, that looks like a massive breeding area. I wonder if they spray over there for those terrible little bugs.
