The land is clear and renderings are on site, but now the lot is overgrown and an eyesore much like West End Summit. Any word on this development?

Why don't you tell me what you want a developer to do when the economy tanks and the commercial lending market freezes up? I know they are both eyesores but you have to be realistic about the situation. Do you think Alex Palmer wanted to spend a ton of money on a project just so it could turn into an eyesore? Was that Concord Hospitality's plans for the new Marriott? In my opinion the only real tragedy in either situation was the demolition of the Masonic Lodge on the WES parcel.

I asked a simple question, I did not ask to get my head bit off. No wonder no-one posts on this site anymore.

My apologies go out to you for creating a hostile environment. However, I do believe the reason no one posts on here anymore is the economy. UP really took a hit after all of Nashville's projects went dormant...there was very little to discuss.

You have some valid points in your post. One of the main issues is banks not loaning money. Many American banks had no problem loaning money to Dubai, Jakarta, Shanghai, etc... for their mega-skyscrapers yet most Americans cannot get a loan for a house let alone any commercial developments, and that is frustrating to say the least.

I appreciate your apology. I may have been a bit oversensitive.

Best to you!

I did notice the that the rendering has changed a little at the WES site. Dont know when it happened though

I thought it was a new rendering but what you actually see is the old rendering behind the current sign. They simply pasted a new rendering over the original and one of the newer panels fell off.

Could be. Its been so long since I saw the old rendering I forgot what they looked like.

As far as the 2 hotels being built on West End, the grape vine says by the end of the year they will break ground.

I hope the grapes are ripe and don't go sour! It would greatly benefit the area to have that start sooner than later.

It seems to cover a lot of ground.

Friends,

I talked recently to one of the developers of the project at 18th and West End. Her name is Diviya (I think that's the correct spelling) Patel and she is very professional, pleasant and sharp. She and her husband (as I recall the chat specifics) want to develop the site and hope to break ground by the end of this calendar year. They have done other developments, she told me.
