Thanks for posting. I guess all I can say is it's not a thing of beauty, but way better than the brick rendering we had before. Definitely not as nice as some of the other ones going up; Nashville or even Mobile, but could be worse. Pretty boxy with lots of corners, but at least it has some traditional and classical elements.

But it’s only six stories tall. :rolleyes:;) 

I know it says 10 stories but it sure looks more like 6 to me. Look at the front entrance. That looks to be 2 stories, no way you could add 4 more of these to the height shown. I know I'm wrong but that's the way it looks to me. :) BTW I really like the building, it looks huge even though it is only six floors. :rofl:

Not much else to talk about. Everything else is dead, on hold, or just flat out boring. That is unless you have a 30 story high rise you know about and you’re keeping secret. :D

Only some of the most dynamic projects in the state of South Carolina are taking place in Greenville right now. Granted, a few of them are requiring cranes. :good:

Pinnacle, obviously. 

They both now have something in common. There should be a mass funeral.

Just looking back and realizing that this thread is 10 years old! Wow! 

We've learned a lesson...it takes a long time to build a Federal Courthouse.

Lindsay Graham said he has been working on it for 20 years. Hardest thing he's ever done in politics. I believe him.

It just dawned on me what this is missing. A decorative cornice would really dress this thing up, take away some of the boxiness, and add a traditional element to really make this thing pop. Wish that could have been incorporated.

From my first post on December 27, 2004, in the New Greenville developments thread:

"Also, does anyone have any further details on the $50+ million Federal courthouse planned for downtown? The Last I heard was that it was possibly going to be pushed back several years; however no definite timeline was given."

That was the first mention of the project on this forum and I never imagined it would take this long to start of construction.

I believe either setbacks or protrusions near the corners would help a bit, and definitely a few variations in height around the perimeter would improve the "blandness" of the design.

Unfortunately the sides of this thing remind me of the Bank of America and Landmark buildings.

Scary thought...perhaps that's why it was designed this way  :shades:

Yep. Better than the original, by far; but won't win any awards.
