This new garage will be located in between Compton and Delmar, just south of the new Performing Arts Center. It looks like it'll be connected to the Curb garage with the new road they're constructing in between Bernard and Compton. 

Thanks for the great post! There is so much happening here and so many websites to follow now we miss stuff now. Use to be it was a one man job. Now there can be a 100 of us looking and we still miss stuff. 

Thanks for looking out for us.

Please feel free to join us at a meetup, details listed here:

TSU Health Sciences Building (4 stories) update. 3rd and 4th elevator shafts/stairwells nearly topped out. 

Looking NE:

One thing that this image really highlights is just how much those front parcels will have to do with the streetscape. It appears that the front of the hole will be the front of the building foundation, so those front parcels (which are 140'-0" deep) can be dedicated to gathering space, formal entries and be a sense of grandeur.

Without a doubt, Lipscomb University has some of ugliest buildings ever built.  I would hate to think they might someday start a degree program in architecture!

Good deal for Belmont. I wonder how private school students will react to starting at the bottom of the food chain within all these hotels upon graduation? College hospitality graduates are woefully unprepared for the workforce and they can sometimes also overestimate their worth. The expectation is that they should walk into a new career with a senior leadership role but reality means the gross majority of them will be working shifts at the front desk to learn what really happens in the industry. Putting it in the biz school is a good choice though because today's hospitality industry is more business than anything. It will be interesting to review their curriculum. As of right now, there are no professors listed with a bio which includes hospitality (they do have the program listed as an option).

I am also curious about how this will impact TSU's hospitality degree program which is also in the college of business. My first concern is with learning partnerships within the local industry. Will potential industry partners choose Belmont over TSU because it is a private school and carries with it a bit of local name branding? Two similar degrees competing in one city might be an interesting dance to watch.

If Belmont does this right, they will build a hotel on campus and let the students in theprogram run it. Many Universities do this as a way for students to get hands on training and it goes a long way to help with a successful program.

Great idea. The land they own on 12 South would be a great location.

And they already have a great hotel name: The Belmont.
