Although I have nothing but praise for the this building's design, I'm beginning to wonder if it will ever get built. I believe Nashville wants this skyscraper and needs this skyscraper ... all to often Nashville has been over looked (a city of this size and it has no Amtrak connection?).

No comparisons should be made with Miami ... Miami metro area has a population of 5.4 million and Nashville's is 1.8 million ... besides Miami has one of the busiest airports in the world and serves over 35 million passengers annually and also has the busiest cruise ship port in the world. It's like comparing Tulsa to L.A.

Hey Nashville metro just added 400,000 more people, lol.


As far as this tower goes Nashville definitely does not need it in any way shape or form. It would be nice to have a 1,000 foot tower but the city will be fine without it.

My opinion on this tower is the following: in terms of real estate, this tower is not something that is "needed." That being said, Nashville does need an iconic landmark. And no, the AT&T tower (Batman building) is not it. Nashville is the fastest growing city in Tennessee, and turning into one of the largest cities in the south, but that's not entirely obvious to someone who's never been here. If this tower is built, it will be plainly obvious that this city is growing and means business. In addition to that, even though this tower is not "needed," if it is built I guarantee that every unit will sell. It would be a catalyst for the city, putting Nashville in the spotlight and sparking new interest in living here. This is a beautiful tower, and I hope it is built.

I was at the Predators game last night and saw a really cool Signature Tower advertisement. Check it out.

Harsh! Actually this building's design is absolutely wonderful. However, I agree that it will never be constructed.

of course the design is wonderful. architects mixed two perfect towers (Jin Mao and Marina 101) and get Signature Tower. the problem is that the design doesnt look original

Dumbest statement I've ever heard. This tower looks nothing like Jin Mao, I could name at least ten towers that look much more like this than the Jin Mao does. Why? Because this is a classic skyscraper design. And there's nothing wrong with that. As for Marina 101, this tower was designed first. Marina 101 is horrendous, and I think the vast majority of people will tell you that the architecture in this tower is far greater than the architecture of Marina 101. It's your opinion though, so if you want to like Marina 101 more, that's up to you. But you saying that the architect ripped off two other towers is just ludicrous. At least pick two towers that actually look like this one.

number 1, this tower is beautiful. comparing it to a hideous tower like marina 101 just because it is tall an skinny makes no sense

number 2, the only think Jin Mao and Sig tower have in common is some jagged points and a spire. nothing else

I think Signature Tower should get built. I still find that tower attractive. I hope it will get built soon.

This one has nothing to do with Jin Mao, that's like saying GE building looks like Empire state.
