The 5 story, 19,000 sq. ft. circa-1900 brick structure at 200 Broadway is being designed for whiskey bar, artist's den, and rooftop bar. The Ardent Company (TAC), which bought the property over 2 year

OK, Right now the number of towers over 100' lets say could be around 32 by this next year. (probably conservative) That will include some of the ones that are under construction now. I will say this

Great news!  The Geist House (circa 1888) restaurant has been rebuilt utilizing all of the original bricks they could salvage from the severe tornado damage.  I'll try to get better shots soon. Loo

Article was 99% about the former Apple employee and spouse and their inspiration.    Few details about the project itself and what is going to happen to this jewel of building.     To get 55-60 rooms there will have to be a sizable addition, I would think.

  They wish to incorporate within the historic Germantown design guidelines. 
 

I don’t think they have to on this site but GREAT that they are willing to!

Saw this article on News Channel 5 about the Downtown Antique Mall closing on May 31.  Did any of the other businesses in this triangle also get notices?  There was a posting here about the owner asking the city to condemn the street and two alleys so that it could combine the parcels.  Sounds like there is some movement here.

The move to abandon the alleys was started abiut 6 months ago. I do think something is up, but I hope and think the buildings will not come down. The owner from my understanding loves the older buildings.

I did a lot of walking around Washington and I just kept my eyes open, If there were areas that started to look sketchy, I started booking it back the way I came or in the direction I came from. Many times and I am not the usual tourist, I check out the surrounding areas out on a map before hand and when I get there and I am driving I drive some of those areas. 

I dont walk at night in areas that are not well lit or late if I can help it and always get nervous when no one else is around on the street, then my Spidey sense goes into overdrive and I am hyper aware of everyone and everything around me. 

I also travel with a minimum of cash, one C Card, and my license that are both in my sock or my shoe. Yes, I am not your typical person, but it has worked for me so far.

The above advice is very good and I pretty much do the same things. The first time I drove to Washington I parked my car and immediately a man came over and asked for money. He felt it necessary to tell me that he was not going to kill me. When you speak in generalities you always miss the mark. Part of most towns is educated and part is not. Part of Nashville is educated; we have a number of good universities. The only place I ever felt relatively safe walking around at night was Venice, Italy.

The Atlanta Financial Center is a prime example of what we could do. Built right over Ga 400.

OK so I've driven under this several times. Appears like an actual bridge supports the edifice. Given that concrete bridges and overpasses last about 60 to 65 years, what does that mean for this structure?  I know that water damage, corrosion and fatigue from vibrations is much less than an actual traffic carrying bridge, but can anyone tell me how these factors into the future of this whole structure?
