  1. Well Ron, at least it’s not a rectangular glass box...ok so it’s four or five of them put together but it’s not a box. Boxes maybe...

    Then again, maybe they've invented some kind of negative crown.

    I agree, the numbers don't add up, especially a tower with office space. 505 was originally 60 stories at 747'.

    Ron is correct, the church voted years ago to remain and stay committed to downtown. They do indeed bring in significant money from parking and along with wise stewardship and generosity, are in sound financial shape. The sale of the former Rescue Mission/Next Door ministries site is paying for the majority of the new building. Unless something drastic happens, the church will remain downtown. Not only would it be a poor financial decision to sell the large lot or the entire property for that matter, it is important to keep in mind that the decision to stay downtown or flee to the suburbs is ultimately not a financial one at all. The church believes that this is where God wants them and likewise their ministry. This is why they are planning a new multipurpose wing. I know there are renderings but I haven't seen them. Demo of the once savings and loan building will begin early 2018 with completion of the new building in 2020. More is known but I'd rather not say at this time. I'm sure it won't be long before the renderings and details are made public.

    I was wondering about Hank a few months ago. So sad to hear. Hank was a good man and always had a good and positive perspective on things. God bless you Hank!

    Excellent, hope to see you there Todd. Fatherhood is even greater than I anticipated. Truly amazing!

    The stacking plan from the 505 app shows 524' although it's difficult to see in this screen shot. For the sake of accuracy the thread title should be corrected.

    Wow! Btw, how's it going? Any chance you make it to the next forum meet?
  11. You could be right Ron, although I spoke with a friend of mine yesterday who is a property attorney and he believes it is likely to settle before it goes to trial. We'll see.

    There have been a couple different designs over the last few years. The two previous versions have been drastically different so I'm not sure what to expect. Architect has changed from HH in Dallas to Earl Swensson in Nashville. They are in the design phase now so there should be new renderings out later this year, early next year.
