If its one of those cheap little things like has been built in the burbs for the longest a bulldozer could have it down in half a day. Even if it was a big one, as they are usually just metal shells. Tearing down a building is relatively cheap in the grand scheme of things compared to the pay back you get with residential.

They are now building a lot more of the multistory projects, butt those are not very numerous in the burbs.

Your comment gives me hope that the math will work for a developer there though the teardown cost isn't a problem. The loss of storage revenue will be the bigger cost for someone wanting to make that change. One would probably have to buy the business to shutter it or offer another property to relocate it. Hopefully, Markam East, the two developments planned across Lebanon Pike, & the residential  adaptive reuse development  planned for Donelson Plaza can make that seem possible. I have high hopes that our existing commuter rail will densify through more transit oriented development (TOD) around the Downtown Donelson UDO.

Not sure if this is the appropriate place for this.  Please move it if not.  This story left me pondering the bleaker side of the hot development market that is Nashville right now...

If you can't access the article, it's about tenants/mobile home owners who are being evicted so the owner can cash out (my perspective).

(excerpt) 

Around three weeks ago, the owner of a mobile home community on Dickerson Pike started to deliver notices to tenants telling them to leave their lots by Aug. 31, according to residents. The evictions will take place as the owner of the mobile home park, Tony Clouse, seeks to sell the property and will follow renovations made to the area.

Some more details about Music City Roots Barn being built in Madison:

- The 600 seat venue is scheduled to be complete by spring of 2022.

- It is modeled in part after the Barns at Wolftrap in Virginia.

- Will be the permanent home for the Music City Roots shows, as well as a Sunday Soul Brunch with the McCrary Sisters.

- It will also host ticketed shows of all kinds.

- It will also have a catering kitchen and event staff, permitting private events such as fundraisers, corporate dinners, release parties and more.

- Adjacent to the barn, a separate building will house a remote studio for partner WMOT Roots Radio 89.5 FM, the 100,000-watt Americana-format public radio station out of Middle Tennessee State University.

Well, this thing has finally opened: a tiny house hotel/motel close to my neighborhood. Was hoping for better density at this prime position on Riverside Dr & Rosebank.  At least they're wrapping things up, as it stood half-finished and forlorn from early 2020. Interesting concept and curious to see how it does.

There's also one at Glencliff UMC next to I-24 and Thompson Lane, but that belongs on another thread.

Don't believe that is a tiny house hotel. Those are tiny houses for homeless.

Quite true.  In my haste to read all the UP posts, I didn't see the "hotel/motel" word.  I've been watching this grow since I pass it once a week after church.

Still, I think it's wonderful that Glencliff UMC has created this project.  I spoke with someone from the neighborhood who does not attend the church but volunteered to help with the gardening.
