This is a very minor gripe, but something I don't particularly like about that cluster of Sobro highrises is that in certain shots you really have to be staring right at them in order to even notice that they are there, because they kind of just blend into their surroundings depending on the lighting, especially Bridgestone.  Anyway.. . great shot.

Oh, if only 6th Ave. still connected from Broadway to Commerce.      Note the block of storefronts fronting Broadway between 5th and 6th (where the old convention center is currently being cleared for 5th and Broad).

^ ^ ^ There weren't nearly as many cars then, and there were plenty of street cars and busses that more folks utilized at that time.

Yeah, that gap between Demonbruen and Broadway and the AT&T's odd architecture tends to draw your eyes away from the buidings in SoBro.

SAP, 5th/Broadway and Embassy will all go a long way towards correcting that.

Per a story behind the paywall at NBJ, Pinnacle bank to double the size of it's signage on Pinnacle Tower.

I actually don't mind that because if you're going to have naming rights atop a tower, make it big and bold. The size of the current versus the two glass faces they're on is pretty bad.

That will make it sound taller.
