Classic American skyscraper design. I like it. It'll be fun to see how much these condos cost.

Usually, impressive height is the result of a certain degree of population density (or need for office space) in a very finite land area. Even Philly doesn't have a supertall.

Now I don't know enough about Nashville to comment on the desirability of the location, or the local personality and its desire to live an urban lifestyle.

I will admit that Nashville is not the typical city with a metro of 1.5M. It certainly has a much larger center of gravity than Milwaukee, Columbus, etc. For a city that is generally regarded as an important hub for a segment of American culture, this could be a very good thing. Putting a face on a city (in the form of a skyline) always helps its recognition. And nothing helps ground a skyline like a tall, and beautiful skyscraper.

That's actuall a really good post.

I loved it when it was short and I love it now that it's tall.

Great looking tower. After all the construction is done, can they put it on train and drop it off in downtown Minneapolis?

Hehehehehehehehehehe, good point. This does go to show thought that if Nashville can get a supertall we can we, it will happen.

seriously... wtf. is there that much demand? this is definitely a bit of a vanity project. this must be what it felt like to be alive in 1929.

great design though, Philly will gladly trade you for our stubby-ass 975 footer

Well, "they" is a Nashville native and very ambitious developer and he is doing it because he can and because the demand for urban living in Nashville is through the roof. What more reason does one need? If it's needed, and can be done...why not? This will also provide much needed retail space and a downtown grocery store.

I agree totally. The detractors on here have these misconceptions about Nashville that are almost always baseless probably from TV shows like Hee Haw. The same could be said about why an 871 footer in Charlotte and even a Wachovia that will probably beat 1,000 itself just to stay ahead of Nashville? Or why an 800+ footer in Indianapolis? Or why a Trump Tower in New Orleans?

While I live near Atlanta, I lived in Tennessee for several years and most business related magazines still see Nashville as one of two recent hotspots (Charlotte being the other) but IMO with Nashville having a location advantage and interstate advantage while Charlotte seems to have the edge in business related construction (not sure). I've been to both cities MANY times and Nashville does have a better interstate system.
