For a city trying to rediscover its downtown, this would be a terribly dangerous project to pursue. It would totally alter the focus of Nashville away from revitalizing its urban core to urban sprawl. Whenever you have a guy like Eric Crafton signing on then you probably know it's not a good idea. I believe the Metro Planning Commission is wise enough to understand the absurdity of the May Town Center Proposal, but I'm not sure many members of the Council do.
Another obstacle has materialized in regards to the construction of the Signature Tower. The FAA has told Tony G. that the height of the building poses a problem to air traffic. I think this is a pretty ridiculous complaint...... As much as I'd like it to happen, I just can't envision all the pieces coming together to allow this building to be built. Read it for yourself. http://tennessean.com/apps/pbcs.dll/articl...TY0107/71101088
