Is there anyway to get a skyline rendering...

54 posts in this topic

with the Signature Tower, completed Viridian, and the new SunTrust?

Also, this might seem like a monumental task...but if anyone wants to see how good/bad/out of place the Signature really looks, then maybe someone should create a digital recreation of all of the downtown buildings to see what they all look like computerized. Of course the Signature is going to look out of place if all of the buildings in a picture are real and it is computerized...

I can provide the picture(s) if someone can provide the expertise.

I think the view from the south side (I-65, or the reservior hill) would be the best for the skyline.

These you mean......

May not be a high enough perspective for the entire tower to fit in the pic.

And this one.....

Maybe perhaps this one will do in place of the first one.....and yes, that is a rainbow in the pic.

The middle one would be the perfect shot (just without the telephone poll).

tistic and I are working on a few angles. We hope to have them finished and posted by tomorrow night. Hang in there, we're trying.

Lexy, we're going to try to use one of yours too if that's ok.

I look forward to seeing what you guys do. I could whip one out pretty fast, but this is more fun.

Plus I would really need to clear it with the Tony. So I'll kick back and watch.

SSG & I worked on these tonight...

Thanks for the photos to work with, Lexy-- Tony's tower is so tall, it gets into the matte!

Behold the lens flare :rofl:

Here's what it might look like to have another large project balance things out. Against the wishes of a few homeless members of the Homeless Advisory Counsel, we plopped down a ~700 ft hotel in the city park across from the library.

In this case, there's a big party going on poolside at the patio. (Or maybe at the dog run?) :ph34r:

I think it really complements the skyline based on those renderings.

Wow! - I like that last pic. I don't know why but it makes me think of Minneapolis. It makes the skyline look decidedly Midwestern or it could be somewhere in Colorado - without any mountains. JMO.

Nice job on the scale guys. Is that the lipstick building in Manhattan?

Bigger. Good eye, though.

Man...that makes me now wish we had a 700 footer being built with it!! That looks awesome! Looks like a totally different city. At first I thought it was Denver or something!

I know what you mean. Even CC2 would have made a big difference. ST will still look great while we wait for another tower or two. Hmmmmmm, maybe we could put in some of those fake skyline backdrops for tourist pictures that make it look like you're standing in front of NYC etc. Instant 700-800 footers! :blink:

Anyone else notice how small the Cumberland looks compared to all the other talls?

While I hope we see some 700' towers I would like to see another 20+ floor apartment towers go up to serve the market for those who don't want or cannot afford to buy downtown.

SSG--from your avatar--I see you are hovering by the Sig spire and crown, ever ready in your internationally recognizable superhero garb, poised to save our fair city from...from...

Thank you good and faithful friend. I have you to thank for the new "Skyscrapergeek physique". Fear not, for I will do my best to protect our fair city from all things scary and those who fight for...all...things...scary. :blink: -SSG

The pic in the middle looks like a big middle finger pointed at Atlanta and Charlotte.

What's that really tall building to the left of S.T.?

That there my friend is the 700ft hotel me and my partners have in the works. We have all the financing lined up, we are currently taking construction bids. We hope to start digging in the next month or so.

Which street?

btw...I like the rendering...and I agree it will take just one or two 600-800 ft towers to balance out tSig.
