  1. This thread will be committed to spotlighting and discussing historical Nashville structures (older than 1940) that have been repurposed/revitalized or should be considered for such. With all of our booming new development, it is nice to also see older structures with character being utilized for fresh purposes. Some of these were once working factories, or administrative buildings, or warehouses, or churches, or machine shops, or mills, or armories, or retail/restaurant establishments. When posting about a particular structure or block, it would be great if you could provide links or brief mentions as to their histories, what they are being used for now (or what you envision they could be), and photos would most certainly be welcomed. Let's get things started with a group of buildings that have been re-imagined numerous times since their initial construction in 1883: Cannery Row. Located on the NE edge of the railroad yards known as the Gulch, and facing 8th Avenue South as it's primary entry point on it's eastern edge. Originally it was built as a warehousing for the food processing industry, with an emphasis on wheat products. In the 1920s it was known for it's coffee distribution. By the late 50s it had converted to canning for jams, jellies, mustard, ketchup, and peanut butter. In the late 70s one of its large rooms was converted in a music room for country artists. Since then it has evolved into several well-know such rooms (Cannery Ballroom, Mercy Lounge, High Watt), as well as the home of many businesses, many of which are for more creative types. I believe that the revitalization of The Cannery was a main factor in the same happening at Cummins Station, and then spilled across the tracks into the transformation of The Gulch. More history and a nice slide show is available here: http://canneryrownashville.com/

    Urban Crime Conversation

    A couple of months ago several of us contributed to a conversation on the increase of urban crime. It was in another thread and , if memory serves, the mods were getting troubled so we ended the conversation. I came across two articles this week (and included two others) on the subject and I am posting them in the hopes of discussing the topic in a civil manner. I assert the rising crime rate in US and many international cities is due to progressive policies - decriminalizing low-level crime and banning preventative policing tactics. I believe urban crime is well on the way to the high-water mark of 1990 (in most statistical areas). The City Journal article discusses the dramatic crime reduction of the 1990s in NYC https://www.city-journal.org/html/who-saved-new-york-15804.html?utm_source=City+Journal+Update&utm_campaign=cde0c3b65f-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2018_04_04&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_6c08930f2b-cde0c3b65f-109485629 http://abcnews.go.com/International/londons-murder-rate-overtakes-yorks-time-modern-history/story?id=54171310 https://www.nytimes.com/2015/09/01/us/murder-rates-rising-sharply-in-many-us-cities.html http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/maryland/baltimore-city/bs-md-ci-davis-replaced-20180119-story.html
  4. Work is scheduled to begin this month (July, 2016). Some pertinent facts: From Metro project tracker, heights are officially 255 ft for Apartments and 188 ft for Hotel The existing house is to be demolished and rebuilt near the Marathon Motorworks complex One half block off West End and will have a significant impact on the Mid-town skyline My own crude mock-up.
  5. ANNOUNCEMENT: Google Earth has updated its 3D renderings of Nashville satellite imagery. I'm not sure if I'm the only one who spends too much time on Google Earth, but I wanted to make everyone aware. Last update was maybe 2 years ago? SoBro, the Gulch, Music Row, Vandy/Midtown just few with a noticeable impact from the update. Mods: Is this an appropriate place for this? I'm sorry if not.
  6. Hello all fellow Nashvillians, As you can tell I am new here to the forum, so I apologize for any mistakes I may make. I currently do not live in Nashville, I actually am studying abroad through my university in London, however I lived and grew up in Nashville from 2000 to 2016 (moved to Nashville from New York when I was two years old lol), so It is very exciting for me to follow and catch up on urban development and economic growth in my previous hometown. Introduction aside recently a group of evangelical christians decided to use (in my opinion defame) Nashville's name in an anti-lgbt statement, and many people across America (including Mayor Megan Barry) have taken time to publicly denounce the statement and its values. Without getting too much into politics, I ask the question whether this statement, even with its lack of direct association to the city of Nashville, will have a negative effects on the city's image and reputation. I understand Nashville itself doesnt support it and has no association, but unfortunately in this day and age not many people read into details and may erroneously interpret this statement as being from Nashville leaders themselves. In fact a close friend of mine on facebook thought the exact same thing as I just said and posted negative things about Nashville itself. tldr: Do you guys this nashville statement have a negative effect on our city's image or not? For those who don't know here is the Statement itself: https://cbmw.org/nashville-statement/
