I'm not so much making a statement for pro transit as I am stating that I don't think that you can make a definitive statement on how transit affects development *in Nashville* without there being a real test case.

My statement was opaque. My opinion is that transit is NOT a prerequisite for residential density in a growing city. This is easily evident as Nashville’s boom continues....even picking up pace....post transit defeat. Anecdotal, but I have yet to hear or read of any Nashville development that was scuttled or scaled-back because of the dearth of transit. You ask me to prove a negative,  yet no one seems to be asking the question - how much development would have occurred REGARDLESS of the transit? Nashville is a meta answer to the query.

Case-in-point

Charlotte TODs
Charlotte, NC exemplifies a southern city that has utilized land-use zoning changes, in conjunction with strategic planning for transit, to help create numerous new TODs along its
9.5 mile LYNX light rail line. LYNX, which opened in 2007, records 15,000 daily users.
Charlotte has seen ROI well over 300% since the rail line’s completion. The $1.87 billion in private investment and development along the south corridor spurred $515 million in additional real estate tax value, an increase of 121% since 2000.
The city established an acquisition fund to purchase land near the stations planned along its South Corridor light rail line to ensure the development of mixed-income, mixed-use TOD. Charlotte’s City Council capitalized the fund with an initial grant of $5 million

lol. In all honesty, this 1ft from making 300ft  doesn't irk me nearly as bad as the 10ft from 500ft that is Fifth Third Tower. Prior to AT&T, developers were somehow terrified to breach that 500ft mark...actually, it seems they still are.

One could just as easily, and legitimately, ask how much more development would Nashville be experiencing WITH transit.

Or who might be able to afford it if they didn't have to build every residential high-rise on top of a mid-rise parking garage.

Obviously, but Nashville seems to be knocking-up against its speed of growth as it is. There are numerous lengthy delays from Metro on approvals from permits and other oversight responsibilities....PLUS....we saved $9Billion....winner winner chicken dinner.

My guess is that this project will not start until after the Graduate is finished.

It looks to me that they are staging equipment for the Graduate construction on land that will eventually hold the residential tower. So yeah, it'll have to wait.

When I looked yesterday morning the site plan had not been added yet. Metro adds this information in stages.  The plan below is for a  10 unit project on 2nd South. There are mistakes on Development Tracker as I have found the wrong Application under the wrong project too.

 

Thanks for getting this up Pete.

      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."
