Somebody wasn't thinking...

I had to drive up to Ashland City yesterday. It's the county seat, and it's 45 minutes away. All back country roads. I don't like going up there, but I had to go pay for Kelly's court-ordered traffic school.

Ashland City is 45 minutes outside of Nashville, and is a very blue-collar town with a population of about 4,000 people. It's on the Cumberland River, and there are a number of small factories and industrial-type companies located there. Home prices range from $100k to $350k. And that $350k will get you a big ol' house with some land.

Which is why, for the life of me, I can't figure out why someone thought it was a good idea to build these luxury condominiums there! They are priced between $450,000 and $1.2 million. The boat slips in the marina are sold separately. Is it any wonder they are nearly empty, development/construction companies associated with the project are filing bankruptcy, and the marina has about a dozen boats in it's 161 boat slips?

In my opinion, these buildings stick out of the rural/industrial landscape around them like a neon sign flashing "Stupid Tax."
