New Signature Rendering

91 posts in this topic

I visited SSP while ago and our old friend, Justin (Sulley/Dallas Texan) has done his research and posted the following pic. I'm not sure where it came from, but take a look at this. A Sounds stadium rendering is included, but probably isn't really close to the real thing, but for the sake of demonstration, works well).

Just look at this! This sucker is enormous.

Another thing, looks like Encore has morphed a bit too. The 3rd Avenue side looks wrapped with units and now there's a 3rd Avenue AND Almond setback. Looks good for the street level retail. Who needs those 3 extra floors anyway?

That's a great shot. Now imagine that with RMH filled in at the bottom and you're looking at a city.

I noticed in the presentation that was done for RMH that Streuver Bros. showed the Sounds Park with home base in the corner towards DT (northwest?). I guess that would be a quarter turn from the shot above (with first base line along 1st Ave.)

BTW: Where is ole DallasTexan? I guess he got fed up with all of us.

IJDave,

The Doorman and I are looking at this shot while talking on the phone. His jaw is on the floor and I'm in tears with happiness.

DT, if you're reading this, thank you. You get all the credit for this find. I'll be on the floor crying with you when I see this in the newspaper. ;)

Justin's in Buffalo, probably up to his cheeks in snow about now. Hopefully, he'll come home someday.

Ha, I just noticed in the rendering that the outfielders had better watch out (in this preliminary shot, anyway). They'd be sure to get run down by the Wilson commuter rail crowd. It's almost funny.

I'll venture a guess and go with Hank's estimation. Over 900 ft.

Pushing 950-1,000 by the looks of the surrounding structures.

Very cool. I wonder how many units he's added to the building. It looks like he added about 10 floors, so there are probably about 600 units, am I correct?

So wait a minute! Do you mean this is legit? Is this actually a new rendering from the man himself? :shok:

Well notice the copyright in the bottom right corner. That is the company that has done the 3-D presentations of Signature to the public and media. They are based out of Memphis. I can't find this pic on their site either.

It has a copyright of "2006". This has to be recent then. If this is legit, it is just a representation. Surely he hasn't added THAT many units to the tower. If so, that is very impressive to put it lightly!!

Yeah, I just don't see why they would randomly release a rendering that has a different height, let alone take the time making it.

Well, I am trying to get out of work the 4th day of march for the next meeting. Email me some of the bullit points of the last one Dave.

I would love to know some of the things said.

I saw this last night and had to sleep on it before commenting to make sure it was real. I love it, it is bold (big), dynamic (big), statuesque (big), and not the MP in Louisville (and it is big)! I agree with all of our esteemed urban plannning gurus that belong to UP about street presence and human scale but come on, sometimes big is cool too.

Anyway I had better like it because it is the only thing I will see each morning when I look towards the river. :)

Way to go Tony.
