NASHVILLE | Signature Tower | 246m | 807 ft | 50 fl | Canceled






Based on the public unveiling today in Nashville, the approved Signature Tower will stand an impressive 65 stories / 1,047 feet tall making it the tallest U.S. skyscraper outside of New York and Chicago. Wow!!

Additional visualizations:

Nice design, worthy of a major tower.

That is a very nice tower; I hope its construction comes to fruition.

Another skyscraper, but this time it's interesting to look at, and will no doubt be the centerpiece of DT Nashville. IMO, it looks like it has the potential to become one of the world's greatest scrapers, designwise.

I love it. The detailed crown and pinnacle looks wonderful, it has nice setbacks, a slim elegant design and awesome height.

I wonder how the new tower would look at night, with the lights illuminated.

Any photo renderings

Look at the pics. The spire is typical in ratio but is designed to be a part of the buiding, not just something to boost the height. Atlanta should design something that cool.

As far as 65 floors, Atlanta's BOA tower is 1,023' and only 55 floors. Add to that the fact that residential/hotel towers tend to have more height per floor and it is easily 1,000+ feet.

i agree, haha, it makes the other buildings look physically small tho, but if they did build something like this in london, it would set off a boom of buildings all trying to bigger than the others, that would be cool.
