Nashville...11,228

For some reason, the Census list doesn't include the Morristown MSA.

The Nashville MSA is ranked 9th in the country for new housing starts, after Dallas-Ft Worth, Houston, Atlanta, NYC, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Washington DC, and Seattle.

The full report:

The city and county figures are interesting, too (but incomplete).

Of note, Nashville's (city) 6,148 housing unit starts is more than all the other metros in Tennessee...combined.

Nashville, Franklin (1,024), and Murfreesboro (753) account for 70% of the entire metro.

If the Nashville metro were it's own state, it would rank 14th in the nation (excluding Tennessee, which actually ranks 7th overall).

Knoxville has a lot of commercial construction going on, especially downtown and on the UT campus.

I'm far from a statistician (I had to take that class twice in undergrad, and definitely had to study hard in my quantitative methods grad school classes...) - what is the best way to normalize this data, to a degree? Any person can see that Knoxville's SF home starts are blowing Memphis out of the water, compared to their populations. I'd like to see the data in a more comparable way.

So what is going on along Cumberland Avenue from Volunteer west to Alcoa Hwy? The road is all torn up.

Boy is it ever!

Great question! It boils down to a beautification plan. Construction started May 2015 and is expected to end December 2017. Some of the things they are doing include underground utilities, medians, trees, turning lanes.

I don't know if you noticed, but there is also major construction going on at UTk. That's probably an understatement.

Yes... definitely noticed the construction on and adjacent to the campus. It's a full boom going on there. And it looks better than anytime in the past twenty years. The Hill actually looks very impressive. Strong Hall is enormous!

hik - are there any websites/blogs that are following Knoxville development news? I used to follow Property Scope (Josh Flory), but since he moved on from the KNS, I haven't found anything close as far as updates/frequency.

I contribute to/follow a number of development-oriented websites, but there seems to be a real lack of Knoxville folks!
