^ Is that a Chevelle in the bottom right? Beautiful, whatever it is. 

Looks like a 71' or 72' seeing that it has the single headlights.

So how much of the existing house was saved? Or did they build it all from scratch, which would be cool also if they did.

Found this aerial pic online of Vandy Children's Hospital expansion from August.  Am fascinated with how they put this 4 story, 80 ft. addition on top of the existing 8 stories.

I imagine that this must also be a point of intrigue to patients. Children looking into the sky in awe, or out of their windows at the progress. I'm sure it's most certainly a pain at times, but at other times, what an unexpected pleasure it must be.

My niece was in there a few months ago and you can’t even tell what’s happening above. They’re making a point to make the construction as non-invasive as possible, the only change is a slight increase in elevator traffic.

There's also this enlightening 2013 article from TIME on what the MOXY/IKEA concept for hotels aimed at millenials ("Whatever that is")

Quote

But a new hotel brand called Moxy has been specifically “designed to capture the rapidly emerging millennial traveler.”

Moxy rooms will be offered at price points and amenity levels somewhere in between a hostel and a four-star hotel. Typical nightly rates will range from $80 to $100. Considering that today’s millennials are living with high unemployment and underemployment amid a global economic slump, the below-average hotel price point is apparently a necessity.

In this case, being “wildly self-sufficient” translates as being OK with self-service. (Here’s where you might see the IKEA influence, what with its renowned cost-cutting DIY business model.) Guest shouldn’t expect a gaggle of fawning hotel staffers at Moxy properties. If anything, staffing will be minimal—which also helps Moxy keep prices down. Self check-in will be available via mobile devices, in an overall atmosphere designed for “savvy travellers who thrive on self-service and embrace new technology.”

While I generally get annoyed with the generalizing “millennials prefer....” statement (especially as a millennial myself), this hotel concept actually sounds extremely appealing to me. I barely use any of the features in hotels I stay, so not having to pay for those features while still getting to stay in a cool part of town is my kind of hotel.

Anyone know what's going on with the Shur-Brite Car Wash at 17th and West End?  It's closed and chained off as of this past weekend.

Nashville-based Regent Homes is targeting a January groundbreaking on a 13-home $5.8 million project on a West End Park site at which a three-story luxury condominium building had been planned.

The four buildings (three with four homes each and one single-residence structure) Regent plans will sit at the corner of the T-intersection of Long Boulevard and Burns Avenue. A small home and a quadplex recently were demolished at the site.

David McGowan, Regent president, said the construction timetable will be about nine months. The project is called The Long and Burns Row Houses.
