I mean...there are tons of locals who think this tower is ugly:
Maybe because IT IS UGLY!

At list you can say something is getting build in your town, I can not say that for Branson

I didn't see this thread in a long while, at one time you can only scroll back up to 3 pages and the rest, it was unable to access. I'm glad they return the same format again..

Some new pictures from Springfield

Springfield is a city that is really hard to capture on camera. Most of the taller buildings are spread out and there's really only one building that stands out, the Hammon's Tower. However, with my recent interests in photography taking off, it's inspired me to get out and make the most out of what Springfield has to offer. It really is a beautiful town! Will upload pics shortly once I meet post count requirment

Springfield, MO:

Springfield is a city that has 165,000 as of 2014 (estimate). The metro area is 450-470,000 people. It's a town that is turning into a city, in a short way of saying it. More younger people are moving into the area, which helps give the city a nightlife effect.

-Downtown Q & A (opinionated)

Q: Why are there not as many taller buildings in Springfield for its size?

A: Well, most projects get started, but eventually lose interest in the location, or do not have the funds to complete. But, Springfield doesn't need that many tall buildings until later, probably when the population reaches 200,000 ( and is likely to happen, giving population trend)

Q: Why do some of the buildings seem dead?

A: Due to the age of some buildings ( like in commercial street area) are older, and then not tended to after business leaves, since no other businesses replace that missing spot. I'd say that by 2025, most or almost all buildings will be accompanied and treated for.

City Life Q & A

Q: when in some parts of the city, why are there buildings vacant or not built around major areas?

A: Well, years ago, the city tried creating or expanding the city, but older people complained about the creation of traffic or rude and bad neighborhoods. By ( like I say) around 2020-2025, vacant areas will be bought out, and places will be built along major areas. This is due to younger people moving into Springfield, as I said earlier.

Q: Is Springfield culturally important?

A: Yes, without a doubt! The city has been through some of the major history events in the U.S. At one point, Springfield was at number three at show making and producing, Behind N.Y and Hollywood. The city is starting to see a pickup in cultural and touristic growth the last year or so.

Q: Is Springfield a great place to live?

A: Yes and No. Ill pinpoint the yeses and nos

Yes:
Boom in economy
A growing and fast-paced downtown ( for partiers)
Calm city if you like peace and quiet (in some neighborhoods)

No:
Some people can be rude, ill admit that (but im from there, so I don't care)
Some neighborhoods are a little bit noisier and more troubling than others
Still is a small city (big town), so growing out can cost you sometimes for roadways ( idiot drivers, btw. just saying)

I hope you guys enjoy this post!!!
