Holy crap, the first 8 years of my life were spent in this town. If this were something to be taken seriously, I would probably shit my pants, but it isn't.. it couldn't be!

Like others said, nothing rises above five stories in town right now.. there's no practical or financial need to increase heights by a magnitude of seven-plus.

silly with a capital S.

To be honest, the rendering looks like a ballpoint pen drawing twenty years ago that someone dropped in water for a month, and just as it dried, it was stepped on. Blurry rendering, even blurrier concept.

Given the scale and perspective of the rendering, the building is going to be very thin (look how massive the background buildings look relative to it), and sitting in a 400' hole in the ground.

I will call BS on it for sure. There is nothing on Emporis on this and that site will even allow for VISION projects on their page. If you Google or Yahoo this the only reference to a WFMA tower in Brattleboro is this thread.

Sorry folks...this is a hoax.

hi

Hmmm....

A 529' bldg in Brattleboro, a 600' in Rutland(any renditions on this one?).... What about Burlington? Why not 800'? That's 10 feet more than Mr. Hancock in Beantown.

Maybe someone found the drawing, which was really of a scene in the Boston area, and thought it was Brattleboro?

There's a bigger town, down I-91, where a building this size might be more appropriate. It's called Springfield, Massachusetts.

Actually, scale-wise, Hartford would be better.

Well, if you read the post above yours, like I did, you'd find that apparently it has approximately 12,000.
