I think what people "hate" about it is that in about a year, anyone visiting the city will just think it was another one of the bank towers built in the 90s.

It would be like Apple introducing the iPhone XXS+Max this year and having it look exactly like the original iPhone from 2007. Yeah, sure YOU know it the latest new phone with brain scanning thought password unlock, but everyone that sees you using it will think you haven't been bothered to upgrade your phone for 13 years. A lot of people here want new tall buildings to LOOK like new tall buildings so people who come to visit the city can just inherently see how new and modern everything is, the same way most Chinese cities look. The parking deck also doesn't help.

It is not until the night time where the lighting outs it as a modern building. Hence soccer mom by day, stripper by night. At least that is my interpretation of the last 232 pages of this thread.

Does the regular Joe/Jane even care  or have any clue as to what was built when?  It's just another tall building, really.  Tall buildings project  a "big" city image but ground/street level activity or activity clusters is what most people focus on....stuff to do in  the city.

Legacy 3 is gonna feel massive on this spot. Wonder if it will be tall enough for field views? 

I don’t think so. from that angle, the scoreboard is too big. Def viewable from all the upper deck.

Will LU3 be built upon that parking structure or next to it?

On top of a further expanded parking structure.

 

Apparently I need to complain about this fact more.

Also more loudly.  Ya think we can hire Jesus Saves to get our message out?

I think some of you made it clear you don't like LU1. It's time to move on. 

Jokes on you, I don't like LU3 either!

Can I start a GoFundMe campaign to get the Jesus saves guy to go around Uptown saying that Legacy Union has zero vision and will essentially be an off brand extension of Uptown's office district?

When do you think LU3 renderings might be available?  LU2 is nice.  In fact, I really like LU2.  Are the architectural quality for LU1 and LU3 driven by the anchor tenants or Lincoln Harris?  Not trying to pile on hate.  Just curious about process and timeline.

Legacy I has Johnny Harris' fingerprints all over it. Legacy II IDK, but wouldn't be surprised if that was Johnno. Legacy III is tenant driven from what I'm hearting.

Thanks, that's what I thought that I read.  If that's the case, it could be well underway by next summer since they don't need to build a foundation.  Do you think that's possible?  It would be great it LU2, LU3, DEC2, and the Carolina Theater tower are all at least 20 stories above ground when the RNC occurs.
