Thanks for the pictures, Mark.  This is DJ (new guy who came to the last meet-up).  Does anyone know if they're going to redo the street grid at all within the Cayce project to make the blocks smaller?  Looks like the grid was made into 2x-3x-sized blocks in comparison with the surrounding Edgefield area when the project was originally built.

Hey, DJ! Welcome to the forum---look forward to you visiting another Meet-Up soon.  Yes--I believe parts of the street grid are being re-engineered in this multi-phase project that will encompass several decades.

Most of what they're doing street grid-wise seems more along the lines of reconnecting the existing grid. Extending Dew St, reworking the big curve on S 8th, etc. Here's one of the maps:

Welcome DJ. BTW, were you at the Metro Council meeting last week? I thought I saw you on the screen.

I was not at the Metro Council meeting.  I have only been to the one urban planning meet-up with Mark around Labor Day.  Is there a schedule of meetings somewhere?  What goes on there?

On my morning walk I noticed this development of 14 houses going in recently.  It's a cluster of 14 single homes all about 1,500 sq ft and $350k sale price.  On what used to be maybe 3 lots.  Parking in the back off an alley.  I absolutely love it because of 1) increased density/increased tax collections per sq ft, near major road (Gallatin), = good for walkability and transit projects. 2) It's somewhat unique (not just same old 2-tall skinnies on a lot) with all the homes facing the center where kids can play.  Kind of a built-in sense of community. 3) Parking in back out of sight, leaving the front side for humans to walk without fear of cars backing in & out of driveways.

Anyone have anything good or bad to say about the development?  I posted a link to a listing for one of the homes below.

^ A truck was at this site today doing some drilling / taking samples. I thought this was dead after transit failed, but I would love to see this move forward. 

My wife, who does environmental sampling & works with drillers says 'It's a good sign that it may be moving forward, but not necessarily a guarantee of anything. Some sites are sampled for years (or decades) before any development takes place' .

Six.O.Nine will be a 120 unit condo complex featuring three 4 story buildings on 3.6 acres at 609 Creative Way in Madison (neat the I-65/Briley Parkway interchange).  Site work has already begun.  The first phase should be done by late 2019.

Basically a dorm for Nossi students.  Nice.

The meets are posted under the pinned thread as The Dave Luna Meetup. We will have another one the first Saturday in October at Woolworths on Fifth.

Yes, this is correct.  H.G. Hill Realty asked me to place the item back on the Metro Council agenda.  Due to Council rules (pertaining to the fact that the item had been deferred indefinitely for greater than 90 days) the item will be placed on the October 2nd agenda and then deferred by rule for one more meeting until the October 16th meeting agenda for third and final vote.  The site plan has changed slightly as the grocery store building is slightly larger and so some parking lot details had to be reconfigured.  The apartment buildings along Greenwood and Sharpe have been replaced by a smaller number of town homes.  The restaurant store at the corner of Sharpe will have a drive-through window service.  The site plan should be updated in time for the October 2nd meeting. 

I have no information to share about potential tenants:  I would have to refer those calls to H.G. Hill Realty.  My general understanding is that some site work could begin during Q4 of this year.

Thanks for the update. Disappointing to hear that they're reconfiguring it to be more focused on car traffic instead of trying to address the neighborhood.

If you're feeling charitable do you know anything about the sheriff's office redevelopment on 5th and/or the project that was being considered on the car lot at 5 points?

Thanks for your efforts!

I will say that the change in parking configuration is probably more of a requirement from the grocery operator - which I still believe is no longer Sprouts - than HG Hill purposefully making it more suburban or car centric.

I’ll wait for the final plan to be released before commenting more on the layout, but overall I think this is a big deal for East Nashville.
