In my opinion I think that Greenville SC should go more out of the mid range building range. Don't get me wrong Greenville SC an amazing city. But i would love to see taller buildings so when I come to the downtown area it would overwhelm me and others as well. But I think eventually Greenville will but i just would love to see it.! As far as growing I would love to see Greenville to have better transport around the city. But walkability is great right now but not everyone wants to walk. But I don't mind but there are the elderly and other people who could really use public transport. This rendering looks amazing,I would love to see this pattern more around Greenville. And with the One City Plaza I think it looks amazing and more areas would be amazing.!
A couple of months ago several of us contributed to a conversation on the increase of urban crime. It was in another thread and , if memory serves, the mods were getting troubled so we ended the conversation. I came across two articles this week (and included two others) on the subject and I am posting them in the hopes of discussing the topic in a civil manner.
I assert the rising crime rate in US and many international cities is due to progressive policies - decriminalizing low-level crime and banning preventative policing tactics. I believe urban crime is well on the way to the high-water mark of 1990 (in most statistical areas).

ANNOUNCEMENT: Google Earth has updated its 3D renderings of Nashville satellite imagery.
I'm not sure if I'm the only one who spends too much time on Google Earth, but I wanted to make everyone aware. Last update was maybe 2 years ago?
SoBro, the Gulch, Music Row, Vandy/Midtown just few with a noticeable impact from the update.
Mods: Is this an appropriate place for this? I'm sorry if not.
