You have got to be 18 to talk the Bull Shit that you do on here.

Ok, so our friend harlem87 has posted in one of the southeast threads:

It looks like some people from the NorthEast Forum aren't too fond of Charlotte and Atlanta:

sociopath (soh-see-uh-path, soh-shee-uh-path) - a person, as a psychopathic personality, whose behavior is antisocial and who lacks a sense of moral responsibility or social conscience. Someone whose social behavior is extremely abnormal. Sociopaths are interested only in their personal needs and desires, without concern for the effects of their behavior on others. (Compare psychopath.)

I agree

No one goes to downtown Atlanta to go out. They have less middle and upper miiddle class living in the city than Baltimore. Buckhead is a suburb of Atlanta like Towson is to downtown Baltimore. Buckhead is basically malls and chain stores. It is similar to Rockville or Tysons Corner.

I'm trying to determine if the new Legg Mason tower and the Four Seasons will share a common 3 story base. If they do, I wonder if there will be a mini shopping mall in there? If there is, I'd like to see some high end national chains locate there. Crate and Barrel, Tiffany, Sak's where are you?

They should build a low rise there and not something tall. You can't have high rises on every single block in the city. A building there will block the views of Water Street and the Cordish condo tower. What about the people who paid for those views? That is the wrong place for a tall structure. Bla. Bla Bla. I'm practicing my NIMBYism in case I ever need to use it. It won't be for that project though. I look north.

yep, i believe that it will share the same base, just like the older renderings of the 2 four seasons buildings.

I coulda swore they didn't. I looked closely at the renderings to see, and I thought they didin't. I think they simply share the basement garage. But I may be misremembering.

When you buy a condo or rent an apartment in the middle of an active urban downtown and you soley base your buy on a particular view then you are taking a huge gamble. You always run the risk of losing it. That's just the chance you have to take. That's one of the reasons why the waterfront high-rises are so expensive. There's no chance of that ever happening.

I don't think they will share the same base. The older renderings did. However the new design has the two towers sitting on their own base.

That was just my sarcastic sense of humor (or lack of it). The J/K means just kidding. You may not own your view, but the developers certainly sell it to you when they set the prices don't they? Seems like anytime something tall is proposed in this town, that is what you hear. It was sort of a satire of the Icon controversy.

oh...sorry...hehe. I missed the j/k. When I read through it again it makes more sense that you were sarcastic. I have a tendency to ignore all the smileys and moving things.

Looks like "The Vue" will no longer have much of a "view" , esp. since 4S just got so much bigger.

Maybe they should change the name to "Vue of 4 seasons"?
