Maybe they will add a railing in front of it so that it can be opened for airflow but not fallen out of. Like this f99c11bc9c79a365ff5e1f45b68e333e.jpg

Cool, thanks! I've seen them plenty of times on, well, Parisian buildings, but honestly have never noticed one on an American single-family home and never knew what they were called. I'm curious to see what railing they end up installing - looks like there are plenty of modern variations with glass, etc.

I noticed that the Shell gas station at the corner of 51st and Charlotte is closed and all the gas pumps have been removed. This is the one next to the West Nashville Turnip truck. Any idea what might be happening there?

It got bought by Mapco so probably another gas station.

Thanks! But hmm, there's a Mapco gas station literally 2 blocks away (at 51st and Georgia Ave) ... unless they're relocating to the former Shell location and then getting rid of the existing Mapco?

Having a Mapco on the inbound side of Charlotte would do booming business with morning rush hour (whenever we get back to a real morning rush hour).  I wouldn’t doubt Mapco’s interest in having convenience stores in both locations.

They will tear the Shell down and rebuild I think, if memory serves me. I think I remember that from the transaction and WW talking to them.

I know the parcel and have wondered why it has not started. Red Seal is doing a number of projects around town in a little more desirable locations. This location is OK, but is a little separated from the rest of the Nations.

With the project at Clifton & Indiana, it looks as if things are shifting back to the East as property is a little cheaper for a rew months anyway. I think the area around the tracks and in between the Nations and John Henry Hale homes ( I think that is the name) may start to fill in now.

There's a Mapco at 43rd and Charlotte on the same side of the roadway, though. It's had work recently too, they rebranded it back from a Delta Express I think in 2019.

The 51st and Charlotte lot is larger and has more traffic volume and visibility so perhaps that is a target for relocation.

Back in my hometown, there are two Mapco's across the street from each other.

Is it me, or has this been the SLOWEST project in recent memory?

I don't think they are in any particular hurry to finish and open during the pandemic.

From an attempt to make a reservation via their app I've learned that rooms are expected to be available at this location after May 15, 2021.
