Proposed skyscrapers for Memphis

13 posts in this topic

Sike..here are the UNFINISHED drawing I am working on for East Memphis. Hopefully, this can spark some ideas for the city of Memphis. I will be working on a Liberty Bowl Renovation and something for Nashville. Excuse the Above the Horizon spire, its not straight. I was going for density but couldn't help throwing in some sleek skyscrapers for East Memphis...

When I get finished with the "Over the Horizon" its going to be sweet.

Very cool :thumbsup: Looks like the Target and neighborhood next to it were completely developed over. I hope Belz or other developers lurk this board and build your ideas (giving you royalities ofcourse :) ) We have enough Targets in the metro anyway!!!

Cool drawings (from a fellow artist)! :thumbsup:

I commend your vision for East Memphis, I think it's great.

Now, how about the "other downtown?" :)

Very nice artwork and concepts you have developed. Are your designs influenced by anything? Some are very unique, I like the one to the immediate right of the bank building the best.

Thanks guys. The spiral tower was my girlfriend's idea and I just ran with it. The sleek building to the immediate right of the bank building is my favorite also. It will look alot better once I am finished, just in "developing stages. The "Over the Horizon"/ Jetson look-alike didn't look like that when I started, it was originally supposed to have a triangular base with a huge sphere (like in the picture) and a triangular point.. It looked like a statue at first. It really would look nice downtown Memphis near the Pyramid.. It looked Eygyptian but I am futuristic so I curved all the edges..

I have a ton of ideas; most are very very unique similar to the spiral. Thanks again guys... I will be quitting my job in about 2 weeks, so I will have more time to work on it..

Oh I forgot, the "Over the Horizon" building has an elevator that allows visitors to look outside while going up.. Thats what the dark lines are. I am going to finish it and then start on Nashville.

These are great...but be careful...Pat Kerr Tigrett may voice an opinion to stop any of these great buildings from happening! :thumbsup:

Ha....I know what you mean..Where have you been?

Out of town for the summer! Enjoying the beach and other places...My brother is going international for Continental, so we were hanging out together before he had to head off to London...then I hear Continental was a target for those terrorists! Probably more info than you needed, but I'm back! And I don't think I'm going to even get involved with the Nashville Int'l Thread...haha...but I may post the link to my source of 166,000 jobs related to MEM. BTW, the towers rock!

As far as the Nashville thread, I know what you mean. I saw the 160,000 jobs too; I thought the discussion had something to do with MEM International which the link did show that number at MEM.

I heard about the Continental flight from Houston to Britain and the other airliners where United and American. They are trying to strike while the industry is recovering. I don't think they will be as lucky this time.

Thanks for the compliment. I hope someone involved in the Memphis city development can get inspired. I have a ton stored in my brain, just a matter of putting them on paper...
