Did he ever have a flair for cool architecture ?

What was wrong with Signature Tower, Sheet Music or the first couple things he wanted to build at 5th x Church?

Sadly, I'm pretty sure every building Tony has built started out with a great design...then the "real" design came out later.  If that holds true, I'm not sure what this design will become in the end.  Square it up and knock off a few stories and you have 100% the 505 building.

Yep...been here before... Several times.

ehhh. Better than I expected but we all know it will end up being just another rectangular box with a drastic height and floor reduction... True distinguishing architecture (at least in Nashville as well as other Tennessee cities) is dead.

....The building will include a glass-bottom swimming pool to extend over the street-level drive aisle in a cantilevered fashion....

At last a true Swimming Pool of Death!  They better get going on this thing before the economy craters.

You've been hurt, I can see.

No need to be nasty....it's just an opinion which is most likely shared by several others

wow, what exactly was nasty?  It's a joke.   We've all been disappointed.  Let's don't be bitter.

I don't dislike the design, but I'm not moved by it either.  Need to see a better rendering.

Would love to see the curve building that has been posted or something more along the style of this building if a curved building isn't a good fit for the property...

Is this a real building? 

I love the skinnier base  and then the flair out.

Even though it is box-ish, the design really is not half bad.

I think the small lot size reduces the design choices and almost forces a box-ish shape.  To get some slight angles on the sides and some type of crown may be the best we can get here.

I was thinking the exact same thing, and although a nice crown would be awesome, it may increase cost and height too much to be out of balance in both regards.

What odds do we give this of being built given that it looks like we are at the tail end of the current economic cycle?

Sorry; I just can't see that coming any time soon...  Especially not for Nashville.
