This tower is going to look so good in the overall downtown equation. Way to go, Nashville! Can't wait to see it in person. That town ROCKS!!

Beautiful tower for Nashville with a modern and classic design at the same time!

lol...yeah, the top of the building greatly resembles the shenzhen wfc and the suzhou int'l commerce city center, making this tower looks sorta chinese.

it's a copycat of chinese skyscraper designs, but it makes for a way better city's tallest than the batman building since it seems to soar a lot better.

We are patiently waiting for the announcement of the groundbreaking date. We have heard anywhere from May 2006 to May 2007.

Awesome tower. The crown, in particular, is very well executed and proportional to the rest of the design.

My only question is why they'd stick such a nice building like this in a city like Nashville? :p

Hey STR, go to hell! A city like Nashville? Chicago is any better with the crime, filth, gang crime, and political corruption? Losing teams like the Bears, Bulls, and Cubs? In the name of Nashville I give you a loud **** YOU AND A SOUTHERN KISS MY ASS!

Yeah, I was just thinking the same thing.

Emporis.com has Signature Tower as "proposed" (some more information on it too) as does skyscraperpage.com.

The crown/spire will be unique:






...the base, uhmmm, will look kind of OK by these renders:

Doorman? Have they figured out whether or not they're going to stick to the May 2006 date? I saw in one of your previous posts where there was talk about groundbreaking starting in 2007. I can only hope its sooner. You have a hell of a city there..

They want to start as soon as the city will let them. They believe they can sell 50% of them rather quickly to get the construction loan. This developer who also built the 24 story Cumberland and the 31 story Viridian is building two 20 story towers called Symphony Tower one and two next to the new symphony hall. They planned on 2006, but it may be 2007 because of so much construction downtown, the roads are a mess. Church Street is also being widened. There are 10 towers going up in the downtown area before 2009. It is an exciting time here.
