Recently posted pics are real nice, except for the part where they are so huge that they can't be seen without scrolling.


Just for future reference, please don't post such huge pics. Something around 800x600 to 1024x768 is about the most anyone should post (except for panoramics)...

I run a big monitor too (19" at 1600x1200), but the vast majority of people don't...

It's no big deal guys... The pics are still great to have...

Didn't someone post a while back that there is an FAA height limit in Tampa b/c of TPA flight approach vectors or something like that?
What is the actual height restriction in feet because the Wachovia tower in Miami is also 55 stories and over 750ft. A 700-750ft. tower is quite possible with 55 floors from sidewalk to roof. Who knows, maybe we will see one go up before the 2009 Superbowl comes to town!!

Skypoint's definitely going to be a nice addition to our skyline. Does anyone know the latest on TTT?

To the person who took the photos.....I love the fourth one with Victory lofts on the left, Meridian on the right and downtown in background. That's a picture worth framing.

As for TTT, the archaelogical thing should have been done last year. I have seen the site twice in January and nothing has changed. I'm getting a little suspicious that something has gone wrong.

From this perspective, looks a bit better than most pictures from the ground

ALL of them are great... Check out Meridian in the first pic. Downtown Tampa has so much figgin potential. It really is a clean slate.

Thanks Smiley - these give me great ammunition if I have to defend tampa's waterfront setting yet another time.

Thanks, but don't thank me. Thank God for the weather and the FAA for the flightpath - never flown that path before.
