I like those angles. For river cities in particular, the side of the skyline that faces the river often hides wonderful density on the "back side." This is true of both Louisville and Jacksonville.

right now, louisville has the biggest/ best skyline, IMO. however, in a few years, i think nashville would be right up there with atlanta...especially with the signiature tower, again...my opinion.

sorry but i don't a whole heck of a lot about what's shakin' in jacksonville. i should know more becuase it's a big and fast groing city. so far, its skyline is modest for its size.

Great pics of Louisville. Here's a couple of skyline shots from the Ville on the Atlantic Coast.

Northbank/Southbank from Brooklyn neighborhood (looking NE)


Northbank/Southbank from river (looking west)


aerial from Arlington (looking west)


pano from Ortega neighborhood (looking north)


pano from Beaver Street railroad viaduct (looking east)

Soul, that nighttime shot of L'ville's skyline from across the river is a nice shot. However, it shows me two things that I don't like about Museum Place: the boxy overhand and the steep ramp. Those two things detract from the height of the buildings' two highest towers.

I think it would be a beautiful structure with just the two tallest towers and that angled and everything else left off. If the museum portion were put at street level, then it would have all the best elements of a new building.

Thats is a GREAT shot of Jacksonville but it still doesn't appear to have as many buildings or be as dense as Nashville.

BTW isn't the area across the river considered another neighborhood...meaning not downtown.

you can see a lot in the picture there seem to be several small street canyons..the aerial doesn't do it justice imo if you can imagine driving down one of those streets and seeing the tall skyscrapers to your left and right like walls of a canyon, it would probably seem a lot more denser.

And the density and number of buildings in both Jax and Nash appear comparable to me. I find it amusing that people seem to consider Nash this uber-dense city compared to Jax.

It will house Louisville’s largest contemporary art museum as well as the University of Louisville’s Master of Fine Arts program. ....

what else can yo uask for?
as far as skyline goes, its like having two 50 + story towers built in one. it will add a lot














Come on. If the designers there abandoned that eyesore and built two new sleek towers with the same amenities, you know as well as I do that you'd jump on it with both feet. Ugly is ugly and that thing is just terrible. I think they could take the two towers and attache them at the bottom if they want but leave off that horrible middle section and that slanted ramp thing. It's just a poor design.

Soulbrotha- why does everyone hat the Museum Plaza. I think it is a work of art and is beautiful. Parisians thought the Eiffel Tower was horrendous but now its one the most visited landmarks in the world. Museum Plaza will probably be the same. It is like taking architecture into a new time period like the Eiffel did. BTW i think it is a magnificent addition. Don't listen to what the others say. Their cities cannot build something unique like yours can and I applaud you guys for doing that.

Soulbrotha is right, the camera lens doesn't do it justice. For example, notice the brown older tower at the base of BOA (city's tallest)! That's the original 1920's era Barnett Bank Building. The pic below is of Laura Street, taken from the 5th floor of the new library. The old 19 story Barnett is the dark brown building on the right.



Both sides of the river are considered downtown. One is the "northbank" and the other is the "southbank". They are connected by a water taxi system, three bridges and the Skyway monorail line. According to urban area population density, Jax is denser than Nash. I believe Louisville may be denser than both.

Sorry Louisville, I always root for you but I think Nashville takes this one.
