1000 Church, with a Bart Simpson cut, but I love it. It is a shame that we can’t go over 750’ because of the FAA. Stupid rule IMO, but this would be very cool!

Would that be the height limit for that particular location?  Also, are there any locations in downtown Nashville that could go higher?  I remember that the proposed Signature Tower was much higher than this building!

There is a big brew ha ha in Arlington over an Amazon building that is 13’ over what the FAA allows.

Well, at least we know it's not just us.  Safety first AND build 'em tall!

Looks like this one will be just outside of the FAA restriction zone.

Scratch that; this is the wrong map. Still looking for more info though.

Yeah that's for drones and such. 

Ha, trying to look for what the limit would be and found a thread on here from 2013.

If you've flown into NYC you sure can get close to all of the really tall skyscrapers there and La Guardia isn't very far from Manhattan.  It makes me wonder why that's not a problem and if they get special treatment.  If this gets cut down to just over 600 feet I'm really gonna be pissed!

Same thing with Chicago, the Chicago Midway International Airport is probably about 25 mins from Downtown.

Charlotte's airport is about the same distance from downtown as BNA is to Nashville's downtown.  The flight patterns in Charlotte I've experienced have been similar to those in Nashville as well.  The Bank of America building is 60 stories and 871 feet.  I just can't imagine why Nashville's skyline would be a safety issue for flight patterns taking off towards or landing from the Northwest .  When I lived in Northwest Davidson County you could see the planes go over and most of the time they'd go just northeast of Metro Center.  Has the flight pattern changed?

If the flight pattern to the northwest is really that cumbersome, why not fly around it and then make a turn westward?  It'll add at the most 10-20 mins? What I don't get is, Nashville doesn't have any buildings over 700 feet. But Chicago/New York has a bunch of 1000 footers and their airports are able to adjust?
