^ I'm interested to see how they handle the entrances to the storefronts along 8th. The entrances seem like they'll be relatively higher than the street level.

From today's Nashville Post:

Metro officials have landed a major permit for city's police headquarters facility under construction in South Nashville.

The permit is valued at $10.4 million and will allow for continued construction of the shell of the two-component structure. Messer Construction Co. is handling the job. Hastings Architecture Associates is doing the design work.

What will be called the Metro Nashville Police Administrative Headquarters and Family Justice Center is located at the site of a former car dealership at 600 Murfreesboro Pike.

Designed by Nashville-based Hastings Architecture Associates, the buildings will incorporate brick, concrete, glass and wood materials into their exteriors.

A four-story, 120,000-square-foot administrative headquarters will "serve as the face" for the Metro Police Department. The family center space will span 66,000 square feet, according to the permit.

Is anyone else a little underwhelmed by the design compared to some of the other MLS stadium proposals?

Core Development is prepared to start on the 20-residences second phase of its Tech Hill project in South Nashville.

Similarly, the locally based company is targeting a November opening for the two buildings comprising phase one. Called Alloy 82, those residential structures offer a collective number of condominiums from which the name is derived. Of the 82 units, 66 have been presold, according to  Kent Campbell, Core vice president.

The Alloy 10/10 residences, for which a summer 2018 completion is eyed, will start at $200,000 and range up to $360,000.

  • Property Value: Non-residential property values increased 47%

That's a good way to get businesses on board... Those Keep 8th 4 Lanes signs would be gone at the end of the sentence, haha.

I bike some and there is no way in hell I am going to bike down that busy A$$ stretch of road. Keep the cycles off of it and this comes from someone who rides. People driving on that road are carless. I pick and choose where I ride my bike carefully as it is not safe even with bike lanes.

The Wedgewood-Houston property home to general contracting company The Carter Group is being marketed with a three-story replacement building.

The existing structure that houses the longstanding local business stands two stories and has an address of 517 Hagan St.

Charlie Gibson, a broker with the local office of Cushman & Wakefield, has the listing the owner, Carter Group/Hagan Street Properties. That entity acquired the 0.21-acre site in April 2009 for $275,000, according to Metro records.

An image posted on a LoopNet.com listing shows a proposed Class A office building spanning 27,000 square feet, with an 80-space parking garage referenced. A per-foot price related to any future lease is not given.

Why is there a potted tree balanced on that beam? haha

From Wikipedia:

"The practice of "topping out" a new building can be traced to the ancient Scandinavian religious rite of placing a tree atop a new building to appease the tree-dwelling spirits displaced in its construction.[2] Long an important component of timber frame building,[3] it migrated initially to England and Northern Europe, thence to the Americas.

A tree or leafy branch is placed on the topmost wood or iron beam, often with flags and streamers tied to it. A toast is usually drunk and sometimes workers are treated to a meal. In masonry construction the rite celebrates the bedding of the last block or brick.

In some cases a topping out event is held at an intermediate point, such as when the roof is dried in.[4]

The practice remains common in the United Kingdom and assorted Commonwealth countries such as Australia,[5] and Canada[6] as well as Germany, Austria, Iceland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Hungary, the Baltic States, and the United States, where the last beam of a skyscraper is painted white and signed by all the workers involved.[7] In New Zealand, completion of the roof to a water-proof state is celebrated through a "roof shout", where workers are treated to cake and beer.[8]"
