    I don't usually start a new thread...but I just think we could all give a round of applause to markhollin for posting so many great photos every single morning. Around 4am or so...I start looking for his posts, knowing he's going to have more goodies to show us. This board wouldn't be half the board it is without his input. Thanks so much!

    As far as the prison goes, they should do their best to save the main entrance building that looks like a castle. That actual prison cell areas can probably be done away with (they're spooky as hell, anyway. Went and saw the place close up about 8-9 years ago...including Ol' Smoky's death chamber room...and eek). This building would make some kind of cool museum or something. You can't demolish such great architecture.

    You can be grateful for the the headquarters and disagree with their signage. The tower they occupied is basically Charlotte’s Chrysler building, and should have been respected a little more. I’ve been very pro Truist, and I’m pro their lighting scheme, but this diminishes the architecture of one of Charlotte’s classiest buildings.

    I was inspired by Alley to get away from the CBD and take pictures of the skyline. These views are from 33rd and Nevada Avenue today.

    this Southend skyline shot rivals most cities in NC and SC. Looks as big as Columbia's for instance. And we have our signature building the Lowes Tech tower.

    You nailed it -- at least drop it 40' so it's aligned with the horizontial elements of the building. Problem is -- it will intefer with the view of the executive on the top floors. The whole thing needs to be abandoned. Imagine someone putting a sign on the Empire State or Chrysler Building. Imagining Georgians ruining the rest of the world

    If this isn’t the original design for the roof, then I’m not sure what is going on here. It’s definetely not the newest flat roofed rendering. It’s not a v either, from several angles it almost looks rounded downward towards the center. If that’s the case, the building will turn out better than both renderings in my opinion.

    I cannot believe this happened to one of my favorite towers. I have a deep feeling of outrage, which doesn’t happen too often. Tact and taste is what is missing here. Not a good look Truist. Please re-evaluate this decision as it’s not going to go over well with the public.

    My guess as to the name of Comers alley is that it has to do with the founders of the Washington Mfg. Companies. They had numerous facilities throughout the S.E. U.S. and the founders last name was Comer. They had two factories downtown, one on 2nd and one on 5th at Church. This is just a guess, but they were a prominent family here. The grandson died in 2012 and he oversaw a company called R.W. Comer & Sons Trust after serving as president of Washington Manufacturing Company, founded by his grandfather, Robert Wickliffe Comer in 1914, he managed 20,000 employees at 26 separate manufacturing sites in the southeastern United States. source TN. https://obits.tennessean.com/obituaries/tennessean/obituary.aspx?pid=161496252 and the Post https://www.nashvillepost.com/home/article/20446290/guy-comer-and-his-nashvillebased-empire

    Thanks for the kind words, T-Hog. 'Tis a fun hobby to be able to share with others. : ) Sure appreciate the kudos, everyone. I just realized yesterday that last weekend was the 5th anniversary of me discovering this Urban Planet Nashville community. Love the info we share, the Meet-Ups where we commiserate together, and all the friendships that have sprung forth. : )

    Found this on “Charlotte through the Years”. It’s amazing how much focus has been put on Charlotte’s central urban core in the past 25 years. This skyline went from a Slightly Larger Greensboro type skyline to a major city skyline in that short of a time period.

    Miscellaneous skyline shots mainly from the westside. Today. Charlotte from Wilkinson reminds me of rolling into downtown Dallas.
