Looks pretty good. Was that building originally a parking garage?  I think I recall a windowless building somewhere around there. That goes back before Google street view.

I guess the "NASHVILLE" food mural is not long for this world.

A nice summary piece on what is developing around Centennial Blvd. in The Nations, and where things are headed.

Michael Kenner, Miken Development founder who has long focused his efforts on The Nations and nearby Charlotte Park, says the intersection of Centennial and 51st Avenue North is becoming the “epicenter” of the area. He points to looming mixed-use projects (retail and apartments) from Phoenix-based Alliance Residential and Lifestyle Communities (LC) of Columbus, Ohio.

Kenner says it is unfair to compare Centennial Boulevard to Nashville streets that move through popular commercial districts as they terminate into downtown or Midtown — for example 12th Avenue through 12South, Woodland Street through Five Points, 21st Avenue through Hillsboro Village and Eighth Avenue through Melrose. 

Centennial is not a gateway into the city,” he says. “And that’s why it’s key to get the right mix of retail and residential.”

 

Screen Shot 2019-09-25 at 8.23.19 AM.png

 

In part, the isolation of Centennial Blvd. was the direct result of the I-40 interchange network at 46th near Alabama Ave.  and the city's decision to close off Centennial Blvd. between 39th and 40th avenues.  Centennial Blvd used to serve as a direct connection to the North Capitol sub-district, providing a path straight through the main campus of TSU (Tenn. State Univ.) and aligning with Jefferson Street at 28th Ave.

Indeed this had been problematic with commercial industrial vehicles, particularly petroleum tank semi's, passing through that point, en-route to or from river terminals and the state highways.  In this respect, Centennial had been somewhat of an arterial (along with Charlotte Ave.) for the Cockrill Bend industrial area.  Additionally, the absence of direct conveyance for motorists between certain major job centers and the neighborhoods adjoining the western-most portion of Jefferson Street and beyond only became exacerbated, when Tennessee State University was granted permission during the early 1990s, to permanently close John Merritt Boulevard (formerly the eastern end of Centennial Boulevard) at 33rd Ave., for construction of the university's Floyd-Payne Student Center, opened in 1992.

While construction of an entirely new roadway, Walter Davis Blvd., and the realignment of 28th Ave. north of Jefferson St. (to form Ed Temple Blvd.) were undertaken to allow Centennial Blvd. traffic to bypass TSU, this might have had the unintended effect of further disconnection of the Nations and North Nashville from activity centers closer to the urban core.  On another note, Jefferson Street itself has become a major source of gridlock with induced demand at 18th Ave (D.B. Todd), 10th, and 8th avenues, mainly the result of severe reduction of surface-road connectivity with the construction of I-40 during the late 1960s.  That actually had been predicted by the former Tennessee Highway Department during the planning of urban I-40, when change from the initially proposed more socio-economically neutral path paralleling Charlotte Ave to the current alignment through North Nashville had been finalized without notice.  Some concessions offered during the construction to help compensate for the predicted increase in surface congestion were never implemented (for reasons beyond this comment).  Before Jefferson Street could have been capable of accommodating former traffic lost through changes just cited, choke points would have to be addressed that now cause traffic nightmares, during weekdays and now even weekends.

So historically the reasons become apparent that Centennial Blvd. would be somewhat sequestered today.  It's a shame that contiguous North and West Nashville in the Centennial Blvd area, remain invisibly separate from each other to this day.  That may change within one or two generations, with increased density and new activity centers rise within the Nations.  The demands on the infrastructure and may evolve with an urge to re-establish a more seamless connection to downtown to relieve pressure on the interstate and on Charlotte Ave.

Why does Nashville insist on renaming portions of streets and naming them in full after the person honored by the renaming?  For example, why Walter Davis Blvd (not to mention who he is?)... and just name the whole darn street Davis Blvd? All these names become a jumbled mess when trying to give directions. I'd even add that would contribute to the disconnect between the numbered streets (and there ought to be a law against renaming any numbered street!!!). And is there any rhyme or reason behind what street is officially a "boulevard" or "avenue" or "street"? I know! I know! Some council unit thinks s/he's doing some member of the community an honor and then the whole damn street system gets out of whack.  OK... rant done.
