    805 Lea, 35 stories, 375 residential units, retail

    I'm not against it. I'm just rather tired of the same banal type design, especially the always-hideous "planter" base. Put that underground and let the tower portion rise from street level.

    I'd think the exhaust fumes from the cars would be bad enough. *hack*cough*

    Rectangle box + square box + planter base. *sigh*

    A THREE-story building called "Stratos" ? Whut ?

    Margaritaville Hotel,12 stories, 145 ft., 215 rooms

    That's pretty bad, too. But really, I think of Margaritaville, I think of something tropical. Tropical like, say, Miami Beach. And what does Miami Beach have ? Lots of stunning Art Deco/Art Moderne architecture. I mean, you know if I were in charge of approving plans, I'd want our downtown lined with Nouveau Second Empire buildings with some Nouveau Art Deco/Moderne sprinkled in for contrast. Take some inspiration from MB, have a giant neon-lit pink pelican on one side of the building and a green neon-lit palm tree on the other.

    ^That managed to go from mediocre late '60s design to just plain butt ugly.

    MSA South - Williamson & Rutherford Counties

    ^Should rue the day that went up, that helped to deliver the death blow to Hickory Hollow Mall and Antioch. As a lifelong resident, I can say without hesitation things were better in my neighborhood 30 years ago than they are today.
  8. That is more beautiful than about 90% of what's going up in Nashville these days. An excellent attempt at classical beauty. It looks like it could've gone up between 1920-1935.

    Rebirth of Downtown Chattanooga (2006 and on)

    ^Wow, a 4th floor. Let's not go insane.
  10. You'd end up smelling permanently of curry.
  11. Those cheerleaders aren't as pretty as they used to be.
  12. Oh, my stars. I see where they get the inspiration for it... I presume the rooms will each slide out and guests dropped into them ?
