Redesigning of the Union Planters and NBC Towers

11 posts in this topic

Our skyline needs to be upgraded, and the first thing we need to do is redesign what we already have. I'm not an artist, and I'm really not that technical, but I do have a vision for something. I would like to see these two buildings redesigned. I know that Union Planters no longer exists and has been bought out by regions, and that NBC has been bought out as well, but I still look at these buildings as the old buildings that belong to those now defunct banks. They need a change. Please put any renderings you have here on this thread. Maybe a design with a sphere that would make them taller, but also some new designs down the sides of them that would make them more appetizing to the eye.

Let's wear this out, and then take the ideas to the people who have the money to make it happen...

I think the 100 North Main Building could be renovated with completely glass siding and a glass stepped pyramid at the top. The top would look something like the top of SunTrust Plaza or Promenade 2 in Atlanta. I could try to work on a rendering........ don't know how that would turn out. :silly:

As for One Commerce Square, I'm not sure what to do with it. For the most part, its a nice, clean, run-of-the-mill, international style building. It doesn't look like its in need of any dire renovation.

I would definately like to see a rendering of that if you can do it. My plan is to get as many ideas as I can for these two buildings and submit them to Harrington and Hyde.

If I did a rendering its not going to be anything spectacular. I'll probably just make a little model of it on Paint. :shades:

With Pinnacle moving downtown hopefully, maybe they would be a part of doing something to One Commerce to add some spice to it...

First, why is suntrust moving away from our downtown, but building in Nashville's downtown? Where is Suntrust's headquarters?

Come on guys, you aren't giving any ideas here. I know there has to be some creative minds out there. Let's think outside the Memphis Box. Heck, let's think outside the U.S. Box. How about some ideas that would resemble something from China or Japan?
