So my girlfriend went into Performance Studios today (the costume shop on Church across from NES) and they told her they are moving to Nolensville Rd. Their landlord is selling the property to a developer who will tear it down and build a hotel. This is what they told her anyways. Has anyone heard anything like this? Apparently the building is in bad shape and leaks alot.

A slightly different view...

timmay,

The first pic is actually Beaman Auto Group doing a major overhaul of its dealerships along Broadway. From what I've observed over there, Beaman Toyota is getting a new building (the now-standardized look) and a new two-story structure (I think) is going up that will house its other dealerships.

Yes, this is true. The owners of Performance Studios bought (leased?) the old H. H. Gregg location on Nolensville Road (they have a sign over there that says "Coming Soon" attached to a tractor trailer), so that's where they're pretty much moving to.

It's been under construction since this past summer (despite the two-year delay), and should be finished soon. I'll take a picture when I can.

Actually, I think I've seen that building. Looking at the map on the craigslist listing above, I thought the location was closer to Germantown, but it's actually on the commercial strip of Jefferson close to Popeyes and Capt. D's. A picture would be welcome.

A few updates:

The Acropolis, across from Centennial Dog Park near 31st. Ave and Long Ave

Town homes right around the corner form the Acrapolis:

1700 Midtown (I'm not sure if anything Bristol's built in the last 5 years will be standing in another 50, but God bless them for doing so much)

That's my motorcycle down there. Ain't she cute?

1700 is funky, I like it from the pictures.&nbsp;&nbsp;Hey Nashvillan, did you know you spelled Acropolis Acrapolis the second time?&nbsp;&nbsp;Was that a Fruedian slip? Hahaha, <img src="http://www.saveaplanet.org/cdn/img/public/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif" class="bbc_emoticon" alt=":)">.&nbsp;&nbsp;I like the dark brick and bronze green roof, but that is just me, easy to please.&nbsp;&nbsp;The second group of photos of the homes reminds me of a project that I thought was canceled.&nbsp;&nbsp;It was supposed to be high-end town homes, and they looked similar to these, but I thought the project was out towards Belle Meade.&nbsp;&nbsp;I remember I liked this design because they were all different and reminded me of ancient Roman villas!

<div><br></div><div>Edit: Ok, I got confused. &nbsp;The dark brick with the green roof is the Artesia, and the town homes are the project I was thinking of that I thought got canceled. &nbsp;I found them in the old (we don't use it much anymore) pinned Nashville project thread. &nbsp;Man, you guys should go back and check out the old projects that didn't get built. &nbsp;It would have been cool to see them all in fruition. &nbsp;The ones that stick out to me were the apartments above the MTA hub, Art Avenue lofts (did these actually get done?), Werthan Mills (how much of this got done?), WES, Eakin, Neuhoff, the Manning, H2O, Fern Avenue Loft, Cumberland Yacht Harbor, Westin, of course Siggy, Treble Flats, the Whitney, thermal project, and Griffin Plaza.</div><div><br></div><div>Does anyone know the status of Rolling Mill Hill?</div>

I know this stuff's been more or less completed and open for biznass for a while now, but no one's posted pics yet.

The Velocity is an arbitrary jumble of ill-conceived and bad-mannered rectangles made of a mish-mashed melange of mystery material (best architecture criticism ever). I think 1700 Midtown is miles better. I mean, the façade seems so arbitrary and non-rhythmic, with little bits of building peeking out here and there and some parts sticking up further or being wider than others. Doesn't make sense. And the two paper lantern/devil horns jutting out on top? Cheesy.

Thanks for all of the pictures guys. I've gotta say, i really like the Artesia by the dog park. I take my dog there often and almost every time, i find myself admiring that building. The dark brick with the tarnished bronze roof looks very upscale to me. I think we will see more growth in the area around the park.

Personally, am am baffled that there are not already several mid-rise buildings immediately next to the park. If i had money, that is where i would want to live. Then again, the mid-rise on the corner of 31st doesn't appear to have sold too well, so maybe i am wrong (but it seems low-end to me). I think the retirement home might hamper things a bit. If i were a developer, i would build an extremely high end mid/high-rise at the Rite-aide site (or the McDonald's site, or the lot across from Rite-aide where the jiffy lube is).

Maybe i am just up too late.

For realz. Both Centennial Park and Bicentennial Park should be lined with mixed-use buildings with ground floor retail; restaurants and cafés and civic buildings like museums and performing arts centers. The little side streets between Centennial and 31st already have a lot of residential; single family, duplexes and apartments as well as various offices and services but there is an opportunity for much greater density. I don't see the retirement building as a problem.

Maybe someone could relate this to the proper authority about the improvement of Centennial Park. I thought I remember where I saw they were asking for the public's input on the park overhaul. Also, I just thought of an additional improvement. Is there anyway to connect it to the greenway system?

They are, here is a link to info page.

One meeting has happened, they list many public comments. It seems like most people want to hold onto the past and/or not change the park very much. Personally, I would love a dramatic change.

Ok this is getting a little off topic, but this place has been dead lately! I hope you guys don't mind, but I quoted your statements and sent some of my own ideas in to the email. Anyone have additional suggestions? On second thought I am going to create or find a thread for this.

A follow-up on what's going on over on the Beaman Auto Group property on Broadway:

- A new two-story building for Beaman Toyota-Scion is currently under construction (as forementioned earlier)

- The existing two-story building (which currently houses Beaman Toyota) will be renovated and become the new home for Beaman Buick-GMC (with a new one-story addition to be constructed; most likely a new main entrance)

Well,

The first non-Vanderbilt related cranes are going up in the city. I haven't seen/heard any number that we'll have for the MCC, but here is the progress so far. I would imagine at least 2 more will be used on the west side once the Greyhound is demolished.

Gah! What a city-killing monstrosity.

Ahhh what a beautiful site.... progress no matter what some may say! Now lets work on a baseball stadium on the thermal site, the new waterpark project on the East Bank and potentially moving PSC so we can get some development going in that space......

No private developments in significant and sustainable quantity will ever come along in the vicinity of the MCC. Any hope of SoBro becoming an in-town neighborhood is effectively dead with the construction of this fiscally moronic monstrosity.

It would be equally sensible to build a baseball stadium in the flood area. And while we're pulling out all the stops replicating urban planning's worst moves of the past 60 years, why don't we force a property tax generating, jobs-providing, good for the community and environment service--aka PSC--out of the county so the city can buy the land and let it sit vacant for decades. Genius. Nothing says "Don't tread on me!" and "We'll give government the boot!" like government forcing a private business to move (especially with nothing of higher, more valuable use coming down the pipeline) because it offends our aesthetic sensibilities. If the old facility is not up to current code, then they should cover the scrap heap with a roof and call it a day.

It is ironic that metro spent $75,000,000 to buy this land for the MCC and now the public works department does not have enough money to process all the flood damaged materials, metro beautification is over budget and has no money, metro general services is out of money, metro government as a whole is laying people off continually, school budgets have been cut, teachers have been cut, fire and police are not getting the recruits they need yet we have money in reserves for the MCC and now the mayor wants a new baseball park. What gives? I don't mind seeing the cranes for the fact at least we have some construction jobs because of the project, but this flood has caused metro and the city as a whole such incredible damage it will take decades to repair and where is the money going to come from?
