I honestly don’t mind the little strip center. It addresses the street well, and the tenant mix offers a lot to the neighborhood. DGX is a fantastic urban store, and the restaurants are for the most part affordable.

 

I wasn't implying that is was useless, just...

If all of our one story buildings downtown and midtown had these offerings and street activation, we would have a more vibrant city.

What's more out of place is the Sitar restaurant but they get a free pass because their food is great.

Off topic, but:

Spoken like a man that's not been to Taj(?)

Sitar’s lunch buffet makes me salivate, but my Indian restaurant buddies warn of the high levels of bad oil they use.

When you say "bad oil", are we talking it has trans fats in it or it's Quaker State? Asking for a friend

Recycled oil from the Exxon Valdez oil spill of 1989. :D

Looking forward to this....just can't stand all the above grade parking garages nearby.

At least Broadwest is going below grade with its garage.

Saw them pouring concrete for the first time here on Thursday morning. It’s been too hot for a walk from the office, but I’ll try to get over there this week if Barry doesn’t rain on me.

      Tony Giarratana is under contract to purchase the .43 acre site at the SE corner of Rosa L. Parks Blvd. and Church St. from Speedwagon Enterprises for an undisclosed price in order to build another apartment tower that he says will have at least 350 units. No further specs yet, but Goettsch Partners will be the architect (just like at 900 Church Tower) and Barge Design Solutions will be involved with engineering.  No renderings yet.
      "Our contract on 801 Church was only recently executed, so our drawings are trailing behind the 900 Church drawings by about nine months," Giarratana said.
      The tower at 900 Church St. will not have parking — it's not required under the property's downtown code zoning.
      The tower at 801 Church St. will have a parking garage, for tenants of that building and "to accommodate whatever parking demand we might have at 900 Church," Giarratana said.
      "Keep in mind, Amazon is not encouraging employees who have a personal automobile. Neither will we be encouraging residents who have a personal automobile," Giarratana said. "This is a new day for Nashville. Given the fact that we don’t have the $5 billion necessary to execute a public transportation plan, it’s going to be incredibly important that the employees at these downtown companies walk to work and don’t introduce their car into the traffic mix at peak times."
      He added: "We don’t think 'live-work-play' is a cliché. That is exactly the lifestyle we’ve been seeking to create downtown."
