is that a  compliment or do people not like this design?

Not a compliment. I liked the original glass designs (see post #1). This just looks like bad, dated apartment tower architecture of what '70s dystopian movies of the future thought our cities would look like. :sick:

Agreed, when I first seen the updated design my first thought was wondering if Mike Brady was the lead architect.   This could end up like the Westin, brand new going on fifty years old looking building.

As an architect speaking, this reminds me of the old ESa apartments that were imploded  a few years back over by White Bridge Road.    If I were designing for Nashville, my druthers would be more like 21st century like this rather than a POS design from the 1970s.  The first design proposal was infinitely better.

True, it's not perfect but it doesn't look boxy and I also like the lattice design of the building in the middle.  I do tend to agree that the balconies look dated though so it's kind of a mixed bag for me.  On the positive side I think the landscaping and greenery around the buildings as shown on that video look very nice!  

The balconies are awful, and every building with them in Nashville looks cheap instead of sleek.

I've said it before and will say it again.  Give me the original design.  I'm staying positive about the new one, even as I have some reservations.  The original design was IMO sleek, modern, would stand the test of time, would have had a huge and stunning impact on the skyline, and the street level activation & design were meticulously impressive.

      A massive 14.5 acre mixed-use project to be called Skyline East will populate the western edge of McFerrin Park, facing Dickerson Pike (where it parallels I-24) at Joseph Avenue.  It could involved numerous 6 to 15 story structures, 1,400 residential units, and 500,000 sq. ft. of commercial/office space, as well as parking decks.  This will be the largest project of its kind in East Nashville. No renderings as of yet.

      Currently there are 212 apartments and townhomes on the site (some of them Section 8 Housing).

      The technical addresses include 301 North 2nd St., 651 and 660 Joseph Ave. Riverchase bought the 3 parcels that make up the site in 2017 for $1.2 million.
      “Riverchase Holdings LLC is excited to be part of the planning and revitalization of the Dickerson Pike corridor and East Nashville community," said Scott Morton, an associate at that firm. "The 15-acre site is located at the 'gateway' to Dickerson Pike and is well positioned to set the tone for quality redevelopment on the corridor."
      Morton said the group has participated in ongoing workshops Metro's Planning Department is hosting to create concensus on what future development should look like along Dickerson Pike. Metro's Planning Commission could adopt a final plan this summer at their June 13 meetings
      Morton said the Skyline East proposal "is consistent with the theme and intent of community recommendations."

      One of The Gulch's visionaries, Bill Barkley, has a large development in mind for the 9.5 acre Nashville Pottery & Pipe Works property at 515 Foster St. in Cleveland Park. It would entail a 12 story residential tower (490 units),  an 8 story boutique hotel (125 rooms), conversion of the massive 1890s-era former factory into 155,000 sq. ft. of office, retail, restaurant space.

      He has formed Foster Street Partners with Emerald Real Estate Partners for the development.  Manuel Zeitlin will be the architect.  No renderings or diagrams yet. 
      The site is bordered on its western edge by train tracks used to accept clay and coal to power two kilns, and to ship finished products that included jugs, jars, pitchers, flower pots and milk pans.
      Today, Ellington Parkway runs along the property's east edge. A pedestrian bridge spanning the parkway is part of the property, and CSX gave its permission last month for Barkley's group to build a vehicular bridge over the train tracks, according to project plans filed with Metro.

      Barkley bought the property last August for $6 million.
      Key details remain unsettled, including what Metro will make of the rezoning Barkley is requesting. It will be May, at the earliest, when Metro's Planning Commission might begin formally vetting the proposed project.
      "We're obviously in the very early stages. There's a lot more work to be done with the community," Barkley said. "It's been an isolated piece of land, cut off by the railroad tracks. We felt like it was an opportunity to integrate it into the community … and hopefully it creates some opportunities for people in the neighborhood."
