Project Thread/New Construction/Photo du jour/Const. CAMs

Recommended Posts


Now that the excavation over, whats next? Has this project started and will there be any cranes soon?

I assume you're referring to WES. There are no currents signs of construction on the site, and I don't have any information on when the construction will start. I hop the wait will be short 'cause I can't wait to see this "bad boy" rise.

I'm sorry for not being clear but yes I was speaking about the west end summit. Does excavation happen often in constuction and whats the point of excavation? Thanks for answering my questions Hankster, I too can't wait to see this project rising./.

Thanks Hank for showing off such great pics of all the major projects around the city!

I am a definate fan of the new Suntrust Tower. Its weird to remember that not too long ago that corner was just empty, now it has that great gem of a building on it. I think its the green glass that I like about it so much.

I definitely agree about Suntrust. It's such a clean looking structure.

It is so exciting to see all of these new places being created all over the city. There are so many new and unique views and environments and scenes worthy of being photographed being formed that it is hard to keep up!

The excavation will be for underground parking. There will be about a 1,000 parking spaces, I beleive.

First time poster, long time reader. Don't know if this belongs here, but did anyone else see the bottom on the Tennessean's business section? There was a picture of the WES with a phone number.

Oops, I meant Sundays Tennessean , not today's.

I don't know if this had been posted or not, but there is a small crane behind the old Belle Meade Theater as work continues on that project.

Also, a larger crane is up on the Kenner condos site right beside that. Belle Meade has it's own little crane skyline right now haha...it surprised me.

Also work continues on the former Fuddrucker's site...steel beams are still being placed and they are above the first floor now...it's amazing how much of a difference you can tell a building like that will make with how close it will be to the street in contrast to the old Fuddrucker's building and the other fast food buildings beside it that are setback with parking lots...I know it's not everyone's favorite project but it is an improvement.

Indeed it will be. If West End ever becomes a pedestrian blvd., this project will fit right in. Next?...

Is there a rendering for this project?

Coming across the Victory Memorial Bridge, the TWO new tower cranes at the MTA Transit Center site look really good. I never really gave much thought about large cranes being on that site, but like I said, looks prettty cool.

This is a picture I took last December, but just rediscovered it recently. It's not the greatest picture from a photographic standpoint (lotsa clutter in the foreground and a poorly placed tree), but I like it just the same. Taken from Fort Negley.

Just checked out the Charrette site and saw that somebody had posted some pics of a few lesser known construction projects. A shot of the rhythm crane is included.

We have a spreadsheet which summarizes development in downtown Nashville. You may find it of some interest. It was current as of Jul 07.

I would like to make it available to those who participate on this forum, but am struggling to figure out how to attach it to a post. If someone could send me instructions, that would be great.

In the meantime, if you would like a copy of the spreadsheet, drop me an email.

^ Welcome to the forum. It would be awesome to have you provide us with that spreadsheet!

Update: The only document type the site supports for upload would are .JPG, .JPEG, .GIF, .PNG and .PDF, but to do so you either have to have 100 posts or a paid account. I was afraid this would be the case.

If you have emailed it to a member who has either a 100 posts and/or a paid account and the file is one of those types then they could post it for you.

A couple things. It seems at least preliminary work [window installation] has begun on the Broadway Lofts project. Also, a very ugly aggregate rock facade is being removed from an old building across from the Phoenix Lofts on 3rd Ave. North, presumably for a renovation.
