From the city's development tracker..
ANNOUNCEMENT: Google Earth has updated its 3D renderings of Nashville satellite imagery.
I'm not sure if I'm the only one who spends too much time on Google Earth, but I wanted to make everyone aware. Last update was maybe 2 years ago?
SoBro, the Gulch, Music Row, Vandy/Midtown just few with a noticeable impact from the update.
Mods: Is this an appropriate place for this? I'm sorry if not.
A 20 story, 421 unit residential tower that will include ground floor retail and a garage to be called Kenect Nashville is slated for 1815 Division Street in Midtown. This is the former site of the Florence Crittenton Home for Unwed Mothers at the T-intersection of Division and 19th Ave. South. No renderings as of yet.
Chicago-based developer Akara Partners will be in charge of the project. Going before Metro Planning on Oct 12 with more specifics.
Here is what Kenect Chicago looks like (just 16 stories):
Hello all fellow Nashvillians,
As you can tell I am new here to the forum, so I apologize for any mistakes I may make. I currently do not live in Nashville, I actually am studying abroad through my university in London, however I lived and grew up in Nashville from 2000 to 2016 (moved to Nashville from New York when I was two years old lol), so It is very exciting for me to follow and catch up on urban development and economic growth in my previous hometown.
Introduction aside recently a group of evangelical christians decided to use (in my opinion defame) Nashville's name in an anti-lgbt statement, and many people across America (including Mayor Megan Barry) have taken time to publicly denounce the statement and its values. Without getting too much into politics, I ask the question whether this statement, even with its lack of direct association to the city of Nashville, will have a negative effects on the city's image and reputation. I understand Nashville itself doesnt support it and has no association, but unfortunately in this day and age not many people read into details and may erroneously interpret this statement as being from Nashville leaders themselves. In fact a close friend of mine on facebook thought the exact same thing as I just said and posted negative things about Nashville itself. tldr: Do you guys this nashville statement have a negative effect on our city's image or not?
For those who don't know here is the Statement itself: https://cbmw.org/nashville-statement/
