Got my camera back and took a bunch of aerials from two seperate towers both before and after shipping the thing off to get fixed. This is my collection of pics that I have from both excursions into downtown towers. One set is from the Renaissance Hotel's 31st floor, and the other is from the Financial Center's (old Suntrust Tower), 30th floor YMCA Penthouse. Enjoy and btw, happy spring.

I may have snuck a few ground level shots in here two, so kiss my butt. LOL!!!

Renaissance Tower views. Some of these have been posted on here before so sue me.

How many are illegal?

I'm going to guess none. Do I win?

And thank you for allowing me to vicariously go to the top of buildings.

DING DING DING!!! LOL!! Yeah, I thought with the recent march downtown and stuff, a little satire would be okay in this case. It was meant to be a joke for those wondering. LOL!!!!

BTW, you're welcome.

Funny you bring that up. I did a Murfreesboro tour today. Just got to get everything ready to post.

Well it was downtown and the Greenway that got my attention today, not the housing stock (which is quite impressive I might add).

It is a bizarre complex, but it is good to know that it is for the betterment of the community. LOL!!!!

I have often wondered just how many buildings make up the hospital complex.

As I look at that photo of the West End two things come to mind. First is the slew of new buildings about to go up on that side of town. Second is the amount of absolutely amazing houses that you can't see, but they are all around that ridge in the distance. You can also see that condo tower out in Bellevue.

I lived in Nashville for a while in the mid-1970s. GOD has it changed.

Please tell me that the building that appears to be eating the L&C tower is just going up directly across the street and isn't an addition to the L&C tower itself, the way it looks in a couple of your pics. I think the L&C tower is one of the finest examples of a mid-century modern office tower in any city, anywhere. I hope that it will be preserved, even if it's becoming invisible in the midst of a bunch of nowheresville knockoffs.

The BellSouth tower, I'm not worried about. No other building would dare go near it!
