I can't see the name "August Moon" without thinking of the old Chinese restaurant in Green Hills.  Now I'm hungry for some Hunan Chicken.

Huh.

So...where, exactly? I've marked the intersection of I-24 & J-Rob. I'm curious if this would go on the Thai Phooket property? Maybe displace the Gerst House? Obviously, this city is too attached to their surface parking for it to replace one of those...

It has to be one of two locations.... The Stadium Inn  or the Shoney's , Thai location. Either one of these is fine with me. We cant tear them down fast enough, however I do like the Thai Rest.

Johnny Fritz has a great song and video about the Stadium Inn.  (warning- the video is appropriately creepy and almost NSFW and involves a guy in his whitey tighties)

I'd be glad to see it go though.

"Come one, come all and watch the world cave in. Right through the windows of the Stadium Inn"

I would prefer the site that is at the NE corner of I-24 and Main (where the loop comes off I-24 north onto Main Street/James Robertson Parkway heading west).  Currently is a rarely utilized surface lot for Titans games.  It is in a bit of a flood plain and could be perfect for this sort of thing.

Interesting concept, but I hope it isnt going anywhere that an urban residential neighborhood might be in the future.

That would be awesome! My family used to go to the Dickson drive in every summer until it closed a few years ago. I just can't get myself to drive to watertown to see a movie.

Can someone please tell me what the development is in the far right of this picture. I believe it has a yellow crane. Thanks!

Great read. Make sure to look at the comments though. Someone from New Orleans couldn't help but say how much better and really it is compared to Nashville. What's the point???

From the Nashville Post a few days ago:

JLL releases office, industrial reports showing strong numbers

The Nashville office of JLL has released its Office Outlook Nashville | Q4 2016 report, with the market showing the market’s vacancy remains the lowest in the country.

The overview:

"However, for the first time in 6 quarters, vacancy has begun to increase. At the end of Q4, vacancy sits at 6.2 percent overall compared to last quarter’s 4.6 percent. Class A and B space saw an increase in vacancy, while Class C decreased. Class A space increased the most from 6.3 percent in Q3 to 8.5 percent in Q4. Despite an increase in supply, the increasing demand in the market has contributed to rental rates climbing. Overall rent landed at $23.59. With rental rates this high, Nashville has surpassed some hot topic cities. Nashville’s construction pipeline is heftier than most."

In its industrial report, JLL writes the following:

Year in review: Q1 to Q4 growth profile

"Nashville rental rates neared new highs and vacancies hit new lows. Over the course of the year, rental rates grew by 6.4 percent –from $4.07 to $4.33 –between Q1 and Q4 respectively. Vacancy in that same time period remained stable at 4.4 percent, largely as a result of new construction coming online. By contrast, from Q4 2015 to present, vacancy decreased by 22.8 percent. On the development front, industrial construction activity is strong (4.2 million square feet currently underway) and has a robust pipeline (7.6 million square feet planned or proposed). Nashville also experienced the growing national trend of repositioning industrial buildings and land to office and mixed-use projects, further limiting the availability of industrial sites near the urban core. Overall, the year witnessed strong market fundamentals."
