  1. 805 Lea, 35 stories, residential, 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.
  2. CBD/SoBro/RutledgeHill/Rolling Mill Hill Projects

    I'd think the exhaust fumes from the cars would be bad enough. *hack*cough*
  3. 805 Lea, 35 stories, residential, retail

    Rectangle box + square box + planter base. *sigh*
  4. Federal Courthouse

    A 40 or 50-story skyscraper should go on this lot. Way too short and an underutilization of the property.
  5. A THREE-story building called "Stratos" ? Whut ?
  6. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Rebirth of Downtown Chattanooga (2006 and on)

    ^Wow, a 4th floor. Let's not go insane.
  11. You'd end up smelling permanently of curry.
  12. Those cheerleaders aren't as pretty as they used to be.
  13. When it comes to skyscrapers, you can never overdo it on height.
