I hope everyone takes advantage of this knowledge for built environment studies. I'll post more when I can. I just added the Urban Land Institute. This is a great site.

The online magazine Salon has started a new series on cities called "Dream City: How Should We Design the Cities of our Dreams?"

The first article basically sets the stage, outlining the shift in attitudes and reinvestment in cities, making a case that many of the big changes and big projects have been spearheaded by local citizens, rather than by governments and planners. The big problem, as outlined in the article, will be how to ensure that cities are affordable and not exclusive enclaves for the wealthy.

Anyway, it should be interesting to check in from time to time and see where this goes. I guess this could go in the resources page as well.

So I've been working on developing the Wikipedia pages for Nashville buildings and landmarks for some time, with the end goal of getting detailed articles for every building listed on this page: http://en.wikipedia....gs_in_Nashville

You'll note that a lot of the buildings do have pages, but most of them are just stub articles that don't have a lot of information about the building itself, and almost all are lacking images. Since I'm not actually in Nashville at the moment, that makes it kind of hard to go around taking good photos of the existing buildings, so I really need help in that area.

Anyway, just wanted to get the discussion started. If you're already registered as a Wikipedia editor, perhaps we can get enough interest to start a sub-project of Wikiproject Tennessee http://en.wikipedia.....26_task_forces

Also, if you want to hit me up on my Talk page, that's right here: http://en.wikipedia....er_talk:Nfutvol

Good idea. I have never worked on updating any info that way, however if you soem some pictures, I have a lot of photos as do some of the other guys here. Maybe if you can give us a list of what you would need to get started.

Awesome, thanks guys. I'll definitely be making use of that info, Timmay.

With the licensing structure of Wikipedia, it's simplest if the person that takes the picture uploads it. If anyone wants to do an upload, but is unsure of how or the best way to integrate it into the article, just let me know and I'll be glad to lend a hand.

Okay, so here's a rough wish list...

Needs improved photos (Existing photos inadequate):

Fifth Third Center - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fifth_Third_Center_(Nashville)

L&C Tower - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Life_%26_Casualty_Tower

Nashville City Center - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nashville_City_Center

Needs photos (No photos uploaded):

Renaissance Hotel - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Renaissance_Nashville_Hotel

Regions Center - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regions_Center_(Nashville)

Sheraton Nashville Downtown - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sheraton_Nashville_Downtown

SunTrust Building - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SunTrust_Building_(Nashville)

Bank of America Plaza - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bank_of_America_Plaza_(Nashville)

Palmer Plaza - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palmer_Plaza

Needs article expansion:

Fifth Third Center - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fifth_Third_Center_(Nashville)

Renaissance Hotel - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Renaissance_Nashville_Hotel

Polk State Office Building - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_K._Polk_State_Office_Building

Viridian Tower - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Viridian_Tower

Sheraton Nashville Downtown - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sheraton_Nashville_Downtown

SunTrust Building - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SunTrust_Building_(Nashville)

Palmer Plaza - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palmer_Plaza

      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:
