  1. I was a very little kid when we lived in Tennessee and I remember going from the hills to Nashville and how dramatic and exciting it was to get that first glimpse of the L&C Tower as you approached downtown. It stood all alone but very proud and very tall looking. It may as well have been the Empire State Building to this little boy.
  2. Actually Nashville is ahead of what Atlanta was in 1980 on sheer numbers of high rises. Atlanta had the height advantage of Peachtree Plaza but overall Atlanta only had two buildings over 500’ tall and only nine over 400’. Counting under construction Nashville has double that many over 400’ and three over 500’. But yeah the overall look is similar to Atlanta.
  3. This has to be close to fifteen or twenty years ago, Probably about the time Veridian was done. There’s nothing on the left side so the picture stops there with the stadium centered in the shot. Notice in order to center today’s skyline the stadium got shoved hard right of the picture. This skyline is three times what it was in the first picture. credit to. https://line.17qq.com/articles/ssqtrraqhx.html
  4. It’s a welcome addition to any city (including down here in Atlanta) but honestly an underwhelming, cold exterior. He should sacrifice some of that length, go a little taller, and (gasp) let it have an actual crown or some sort of interesting roofline scheme.
  5. The Four Seasons is making a huge impact on the right side.
  6. I’m beginning to think this isn’t going to hit anywhere close to 542’. With six floors left it’s barely taller than Pinnacle from the angles I see. It’ll have to have some extra tall floors and a crown to come close.
  7. Does Pinnacle sit higher than Four Seasons? With Four Seasons at the 31st floor it still hasn’t overtaken Pinnacle. If Four Seasons is going to be 540’ and Pinnacle supposedly at 417’ the Four Seasons has a lot of footage to overcome in just nine more floors to hit the projected height
  8. Really? So these both are a fine deal and going up together?

  10. It’s easier to ask forgiveness than permission....grab a brush! By the way that’s a nice angle on DT.
  11. So how much more likely does the “hiring a contractor” step make this project?
  12. A spire would ruin this one. Save the spires for a new iconic building downtown.
  13. That’s going to be a fine angle with Four Seasons sticking up prominently in the background.
