Amazed that remnants of the signage for the Nashville Sporting Goods Co. is still there.   At one point that was the primary retail store in Nashville to buy all types of sporting equipment.  Are there plans for that building?  It would be nice to keep that section of Rosa Parks Blvd intact to provide a break from the modern towers going up in that area.

The building I would miss most is the three story brick next to Sporting Goods. It has style, especially on the inside, is 19th century, and has a great history. For some time it has been an upscale restaurant and if you ever eat in there you will fall in love with it. It was called The Townhouse Tea Room and currently is called The Standard.

Hoping Nashville has some sort of landmark process for buildings that are of strong historical value. If not, these will probably be razed for the highest bidder--sooner or later. Here in NYC, this issue is a constant. There is a tremendously huge amount of properties designated as landmark buildings, and can't be touched, but there are so so many that are not protected--and are constantly under threat of destruction.

@PostRuralrendering is popping up everywhere on my FB timeline! And this is from people not into development. One of the postings was on my Franklin neighborhood FB page

I added this  to several non UP posts to clarify to many now commenting the context of the graphic.   I thought folks should be aware that it is only a part of the whole development picture of Nashville.  Too many IMO would think this is a complete synopsis.  Therefore I added "This is ONLY illustrating the proposals in the core and down Broadway/ West End/ Church westward. This shows very little to nothing of the East Bank/ Germantown/ 4th Avenue S.proposed highrises. This graphic was made by PostRural, a friend on the Urban Planet Nashville site. There is at least as much red and teal NOT shown as there IS shown in these photos. Here is a typical new proposal on the hiil near the Fern Street overpass off Dickerson Pike. LOTS more like this proposed over there that are not shown on PostRural's graphic. This is just the tip of the iceburg folks."  Perhaps as a service to folks not on our forum, y'all could add a similar disclamer.  Congrats PostRural for creating a very informative post.

The building you speak of is the last remaining 19th century three story townhouse in downtown Nashville. I’ve been told that the first indoor bowling lanes in Nashville were in the basement of the ballroom addition at the rear of the original residential structure.

TBT: West End Methodist Church at Broadway and 16th Ave. (circa 1890) around 1935. It was torn down in 1940 to make way for a car dealership.  Church relocated to new structure at 2200 West End Ave. which still active and stands today.

To think Nashville once offered a church of this grandness. This is a fine example of why I sometimes am envious of the Cincinnatis and Pittsburghs of this great country. Those cities offer such churches. Nashville doesn't. Sad.

Something about this 1989 skyline.  The skyscrapers look like titans among the numerous smaller buildings below.   The old guard.

I wish the Dominion tower would use the lights that once graced the top of it...
