It's okay to me.   Oddly shaped lots present an opportunity to do something really unique.  I don't get unique in this design.  This is a lot that should be iconic for the area.

I don't mind that it is a mid-rise, but more of a nod to the Flatiron Building in NYC or one of my other favorites the Sentinel in San Francisco  would be nice for that lot.  The Sentinel holds its own even though it is right near the Transamerica Building.

To me what has been proposed will just blend in with the other glass structures.  It's lacking presence to me.   It will have a relatively flat facade with a few balconies.

 

People simply don’t build anything that looks like this anymore. These buildings only come from age.

Not sure this is a delayed news story or this is movement on this project? But just saw this news story.

YE GADS there’s that nasty old stock photo again. It needs to be banished from the internet..That has to have been taken 25 or 30 years ago.

Was there ever a PT boat docked at Nashville?  What is that thing? 

Two things on the water-a floating staged docked at Riverfront Park and a barge and tugboat headed downstream.

LOL... that floating stage fooled me!  [embarrassed]

Don’t be too embarrassed-our eyes love to fool us! And sometimes that even works to our advantage. My mirror keeps trying to convince me that I’m young, thin, rich, and sexy.

:rofl:

Now that you mention it, I think there was some sort of historic PT boat or landing craft or something tied up next to Nissan Stadium for a short while a couple years ago but I can't rustle up any news mention of it.

I found a link to an article at nps.gov but it's not there now.  There is probably a few posts somewhere on this forum about these boats that were made in Nashville early in WW2.

LST-325 from Evansville was downtown in September 2012 at least, I think it has been back since then.
