Tryon Place - Crescent project at Tryon and Stonewall

Recommended Posts

^ Sweet even better.  Just noticed the big garage next to it.  It's like 20% height of the building.  There is no retail in that at all on Collage or Hill St?  Imposing :/

IMO, Legacy makes this tower look way better. Without legacy, it looks clumsy or odd sitting there.

Any building looks better when compared to Legacy...

If DEC, part 2 delivers, then I can forgive Tryon Place for being so disappointingly underwhelming. As far as viewer presence (disclaiming this before the pro-retail people hop on my junk), it simply just adds density. Nothing more, nothing less. As mentioned before, at least it's not the same height as Regions and Westin, because that would be annoying.

I like Tryon Place.  The entire project, including the tower.

I'll eat my hat if you guys don't like this project when its finished, and also when the JW Marriott hotel renderings come out.  I think the articulated texture will look good when its finished and it will help breakup a district that is primarily flat glass curtain.

I don't DISLIKE it, per se. I just preferred the older renderings and I think it could be so much more.

Old renderings reflected floorplans that weren't conducive for a financial tenant :-(, that was drawn for a Utility Company.

This was version was basically drawn for Ally Bank. After 4-5 years of courting prospective clients I'm sure Crescent just wanted to see a return on the investment they made on the land, the rezoning and the design/marketing. Financial companies want glass boxes with maximized square footage, and thats what you see reflected in the design.

Lets say your house was on the market for 4 years, you might just have to change the wild paint job and put in some grey/beige to get in a new clientele.

It would look better if it was tall, it looks squat to me. Maybe is it was 450-500ft it would look better ??

Then South End will attain more height since I've been begging for ever since the creation of time and the universe itself.

LOL Give him a little credit guys!  He was on another similar forum, which I shall not name, advocating for the same stuff.

The "creation of time and the universe itself" as defined as August 28, 2017?  That is essentially like half a year ago.

@Cadi40, just out of curiosity, how old are you?

Actually like the height, helps transition down to 277 and Southend. Once Legacy is built out completely and Duke Energy Center #2 is complete there literally won't be anywhere for uptown to spread toward the "South" (SSW) except accross 277. 

I’d love a canyon on 277 even if it weren’t one of major height. There are plenty  vacant lots right up against 277 on the South End side that could make this happen. A couple 20-some-odd-floor residential buildings there would be very attractive. With that portion of 277 being in depressed land, even a 15-story building would seem relatively imposing.

I've actually been curious about this as well Hunted.  Not just Cadi40's age, but maybe a little description of everyone on here.  I was actually thinking of creating a topic the other day for people to introduce themselves and tell a little bit about them.  Would be nice to get to know you guys a little better.  Would also be nice to have a meetup sometime.

Back to Tryon Place, I'm really getting impatient on this hotel.  When will we see an official rendering and when will we officially know the brand?!

I believe there was one of those threads years ago.

Cadi40 reminds me of myself, when I first started posting on here 15 years ago, when I was a teenager, and a skyscraper fan boy. So I can't give him too much crap :-).  Still very young, very full of hope and optimism, and not exactly an expert in the development world.

I don’t feel comfortable sharing the exact age but I’d say I’m a generic millennial for sure.
