Have you seen the renderings? Do you know what this building looks like? Wait - you don't! Because you live in Georgia and didn't sit through the meeting. So why don't you reserve your uneducated judgment until after you see the renderings?

There were only two, actually, and they weren't that vocal; there was applause from them at one point when a LCB member criticized the design but that was all.

The last time I was so eager to see photos was when I waited for Kim Kardashian's Playboy issue to "cum" out.

I simply made a neutral statement claiming I like the buildings you compared it too and said I doubt it'll look bad. I don't know why you think your opinion is more important than everyone else's just because you saw the renderings. I didn't pull my opinion out of a hat. In fact, my "lack of education" came from what you said. No need for me to fly 1,000 miles for a damn meeting when you went. Thanks for letting us know what it looks like, really. Just please try not to take out your anger on me because I prefer different than you.

Sounds like a doozy.

I eagerly await... (to be disappointed). Meanwhile down the street, JDS just revealed a masterpiece.

Light NIMBY opposition. Extell should go ahead and release all the renders and get on with building this bitch.

I hope that the delay in posting this video is due to the fact that two super hot chicks accosted BBR on his way home and demanded that he engage in a threesome with them. Hopefully he'll post that video too (at least of the birds).

Too bad BBR is a homo!

The video is taking forever to upload to Dropbox but I promise it's coming.

You can't take a quick screenshot of the vid? We're dying here.

Here it is via Dropbox. It's 636 megabytes; I deal with photos not videos normally, so I freely admit to my incompetence & the camera is also shaky.

It gets 'good' after the 3:30 mark, and that's when you can really see the tower; they showed several videos in a row, not all depicted the entire building.

Agreed its a little awkward, however not quite as bad I was expecting. Great scoop - thanks for attending.

They dont seem to show the entire tower. I wonder if the tower portion of this design is finalized.
