It just looked horrifically out of place, and incredibly distracting to the beauty of the downtown core.

Based on my experiences, I really enjoyed my travels to Louisville, and as my folks now live near the area, I'll be travelling there quite frequently in the future, and I definitely look forward to it.
I've only been there once, but I agree. I thought theirs was a very nice skyline and again, I am delighted that horrible building isn't happening!

Your opinion about the building is very different from that of many others. It was going to be a striking addition to the skyline of Louisville. The only thing we've all seems to be accomplishing recently is tearing down historic buildings to build surface parking lots. Most of the deals for this type of de-development have been done in the back rooms of government between our mayor and several developers (mainly Todd Blue).

I am very sad/sorry to hear they could not make that project work. What a forward thinking and ambitious project. I hope Their creative sights are met with more sound financial dealings in the future.
That tower would have been an incredible architectural landmark AND civic destination.
Alas..... it's been fun watching smaller projects sping up around downtown. Always enjoy my visits here. ( Live in Austin) Cheers ya'll!
