  1. 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.
  2. I'd think the exhaust fumes from the cars would be bad enough. *hack*cough*
  3. 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.
  4. ^That managed to go from mediocre late '60s design to just plain butt ugly.
  5. ^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.
  6. 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.
  7. The ones on the left (south side of Union at 3rd) are still there, but 3 square blocks along the north (right) side from 1st to 4th below Deaderick were all demolished in the 1960s/early '70s (and then all the way up to Legislative Plaza shortly after for TPAC). The block between 3rd and 4th was where the First American would go up, but the 2 blocks to 1st were made into parking lots for the Courthouse (now the park). A dreadful loss of 19th and early 20th century buildings (and then the entirety of the buildings surrounding the courthouse were demolished by 1974).
