Nationally noted Atlanta-based restaurateur Ford Fry will open in late summer Sea Wolf in Germantown.

Sea Wolf will focus primarily on seafood. It will share a roof with Star Rover, a live music listening room for local acts with taqueria-style snacks and cocktails, and Le Loup, a French-esque space that a release describes as a “dimly lit and over-the-top cocktail lounge.”

The restaurant will be part of the Hammer Mill development located near the Cumberland River. It will operate from a former warehouse (pictured at the left in the image below) fronting a segment of Adams Street that is undergoing an infrastructure update.

Hopefully this development addresses the river with some outdoor seating.  I've never seen a city completely ignore a river through downtown like Nashville has.

I couldn't agree more.  I hope that in the future Nashville reintroduces itself to the river that helped to build it.  It should be much more than just a highway for the occasional barge.

I'm amazed at home many areas of the city just have shrubbery and trees by the river, with no attempted development. I understand some have a steep grade, or are limited access due to the railroad, also, it may not be cost effective to build something in an area thats flood-prone or technically with a "dangerous current" but I envision sturdy stone steps leading down to the water in steep areas, like the whole city of Paris has around the Seine, with the river lined in wide walkways.

I jog down the greenway along the river all the time and i've always wondered what that little old dilapidated building is in the first picture- right to the left of where it says riverfront park in green. anyone know? i always thing it could be cleaned up and rehabbed.

I have been inside all the way to the bottom. It's in bad shape. Not sure what it used to be but it was owned by the TVA until it was sold to Nashville in 1964.

Interesting....as I was on my rounds yesterday, I saw a crew core drilling on the large State Employee parking lot that is bordered by Rosa Parks Blvd, 10th Circle North, and Gay Street.  I asked one of the guys what they were working on, and he stated he would get fired if he were to tell anyone.    Hmmmmmm.  

Looking NE from Gay Street, 1/2 block west of Rosa Parks Blvd.

The equipment was just to the south of the State Employee Parking Lot 15 marker on this screen shot.

I passed by this yesterday and haven't seen it mentioned here yet. Vista at White's Creek is a development of single family homes just off of Briley Parkway on White's Creek Pike, opposite the UPS expansion. It seems pretty well underway at this point with at least 50 homes built and it looks like they're planning many more. IMG_2179.thumb.jpg.9444d22ce1e27c38a3e9ee15ed811a7d.jpg

This is the closest thread I could find for this. Does a White's Creek/NW area thread exist?

That started about 3 or 4 years ago with all the utility work and they started building I think about 2 years ago. I pass it everyday and they’ve built a lot of houses in the last year. There’s something else being built across the street from ups and the rock quarry but don’t know what it is and wondered if any one had a clue. I had heard another ups facility but not sure if that was true or not.

I'm glad this project is on the boards, and at least they're being specific about pushing back the start; but I have to wonder couldn't they have worked in some curves into this building? Just sooo blocky.
