Talk about bringing something back from the grave, lol. It's pretty cool to see how everything turned out. The 12 story Villa Rica condo tower was left off Jax's results but I don't know how well it sold. It has about 70 units or so. Also left off the Jax list was our permanent monument to the real estate bust....

Berkman Plaza II





Hopefully someone will tear down this thing before it falls on its own. Anyway, I did get a chance to visit both Nashville and Louisville since this thread and came away impressed by both.

Oh my God dude, that quote is like almost six years old and I've only been in metro Atlanta for a year and a half. I guess that's "far, far too long" if you have the lifespan of a shrew.

While I like Nashville's skyline, I don't think it is as memorable as Jacksonville's, I am partial.

Of the "villes" in question, I like Nashville's skyline the best. It has a nice mix of sizes, shapes and styles, and they are nicely clustered. The "Batman Building" and the Pinnacle especially stand out. And of course it all has a nice river setting. I also think that Nashville has the most potential out of these cities and its skyline will continue to improve. The 21 story Omni is under construction as we speak, and I'd love to see some of the proposed buildings (like 505 Church) go up.

Jacksonville has a great water setting, but I don't care for the particular buildings...mostly boxes with one pointy top.

Been a while since the last post, but it now appears that Nashville may have a substantial lead for the best skyline by 2020 out of the 3 "villes". At the moment, Jacksonville has very few large-scale projects in the works and I don't see that changing anytime soon. I'm not so sure about Louisville, since I didn't notice anything of significance recently announced in that city's development thread.

Louisville's thread has been pretty much dead for the past eight or nine months. Nothing much to talk about, particularly relating to new potential skyscrapers. Ever since the Museum Plaza project died, it seems most of the enthusiasm has died in the Louisville SSC threads. The recent financial struggles of the YUM! Center (downtown arena) haven't helped add much of a positive spin to the local development picture either.

Skyscrapers take a while to get off the ground. I seriously doubt you see any highrises built in downtown Jax before 2020. Same probably goes for Louisville. IMO, Nashville wins hands down.

Agreed. The only potential high-rise for Jax would more than likely be residential in nature and not office. The proposed 700' St. Johns condo tower that was cancelled a few years ago would have been sooo sweet!!

I just read the last two pages of this thread so I'm pretty sure I missed a lot. Anyway's, I thought I would throw my in my .02 on the subject, as bias as it may be...

I agree with the last few posts and think it's pretty much a given at this point that Nashville will have the best skyline in 2020 and beyond. Nashville is a very hot commodity right now and is booming! Also, there isn't any sign of it slowing down anytime soon.

Besides the rather large list of stuff that have been recently completed. The list of current projects either under construction or about to start in Nashville (over 15 stories) is pretty substantial in comparison to the other "ville" cities mentioned. (See below) Not to mention the massive new $600 million dollar Music City Center that was just completed. (currently the nations newest convetion center and 15th largest. One of the nicest too if you ask me) That alone will spur development for years to come.

Nashville
SoBro 32 395’
Omni Hotel 22 260
Mondrian 23 270
Green Hills 22 250?
West End Summit 1 22 350
West End Summit 2 17 269
West End Summit Hotel 16 190’?
Buckingham Hotel 17 190’
Marriot SoBro 16 190’
Hyatt Regency 16 200’
Marriot Spring Hill 16 200’

Louisville
RiverPark Place towers both at 16 stories is all I know of.

Jacksonville
As far as I can tell seem's a lot busier than Louisville, but I couldn't find a current list projects under construction or about to start, which leads me to believe not much is happening as of right now.

The list of proposals and stuff in the pipeline that will probably start in the near future here in Nashville, almost seem's endless and is growing everyday. You can check them out in the link below.

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1648155

Anyway's, it's kind of crazy that not too long ago, all three of the cities listed above were very comparable in terms of growth and development, and all of the sudden Nashville exploded out of nowhere and hasn't looked back since. Other than the usually mega cities like Atlanta and Miami, I think Nashville and Charlotte will lead the Southeast in terms of construction/development/highrises for the forseeable future. With that said, I give Nashville the clear edge in the skyline department vs the other "villes" for now, and definetly into the future...

All of the villes have weird-ass skylines. Nashville already has the best of these unfortunate skylines. If the new buildings obscure that hideous batman atrocity then Nashville easily wins.

That train wreck of a design "batman" building looks terrible. The rest of Nashville looks great.

Well, your certainly in the minority of people that feel that way, but your entitled to your own opinion. With that said, curious as to what you think is such a "train wreck" about the tower? Please, do tell.
