Nashville is nice, but, it could use some more buildings with height. It doesn't appear to be a commanding skyline that really grabs your attention. 7/10

Skyline is quite small but looks good, and skyscrapers are really interesting (especially that one with Bellsouth logo)
7/10

You can clearly see where the boxiness of the 70's and 80's gave way to the almost neo-gothic ornamentation and spires of the 90's and beyond. Nashville is very lucky to have such an attractive signature tower. 8.

A very nice and original skyline for a city of its size. I give it a 7/10.

It's a nice skyline for the size of the city. I like the variety (esp. as you get closer to street level) and the presence of a "signature" tower in a relatively small metro. It will be nicer as it continues to grow and fill in around that core of towers-- especially as it gains more residential towers.

More Towers on the way for Nashville!

Currently being built is the 31 story Viridian Tower at 410 feet

Proposed a 55 story Signature Tower at 700 feet

Starting Construction on a 13-16 story mid-rise at around 200 feet

Proposed a 23 and 26 story tower combination at 350 feet and 406 feet respectively.

That will be five new towers built by 2009 if all completed.

I live in Nashville, thanks for the nice comments!

Nashville is much more impressive when driving from the north along I-65...the downtown is on a hill, so it looks much more impressive than it actually is. Bell South is cool, but it should have been much taller. Once you get downtown, the skyline isn't as impressive. There needs to be more density.

Groundbreaking for new Tower

Thursday May 26th, the groundbreaking for the new 16 story Suntrust Tower will take place. Also breaking ground is the 18 story Adelcia Tower in July. If one were to drive through Nashville today, the amount of cranes seen in the sky would be quite impressive. A lot of the buildings are not tall perse', but the "density" is really growing. On West End Avenue, directly west of the CBD and urban core, the density is getting thick. There are dozens of buildings in the 10-18 story range giving Nashville a "second" skyline. Nashville has a county population of almost 600,000 and a MSA of almost 1.6 million.

Not only is Nashville home to country music and the Tennessee Titans our NFL team, but we also have the Nashville Predators our NHL franchise and 13 colleges and universities in the downtown area. We have almost 20 hospitals making us the healthcare center of the south, and 10 major banks and dozens of printing plants and book publishing companies.

Nashville was voted the Number 1 transfer city in the USA for companies wanting to move, and we are listed in the top 20 metro's in the USA.

I love Nashville. Downtown is awesome for a city its size, and I don't have any problem whatsoever with the architecture. I give it an 8 out of 10.

Arch Madness, I have to wonder what the hell country music has to do with a skyline and the subsequent rating system above? Just how are those two things interconnected? I am not a huge country fan, (but I don't dislike it either), but to throw that comment into the mix when zeroing in on an opinion of buildings, their architectural value, and the size and density of any downtown anywhere, just seems weird to me. Sorry.

7/10 - I've driven through Nashville a few times, and the skyline really surprised me.

Nashville will be breaking ground again with an 18 story 300 foot building called the Adelicia. It is a condo project in the West End area that will increase the height of the "secondary" skyline.

Just wait until next year at this time when the Viridian is finished and part of the skyline! The New Suntrust Plaza should be all the way up, just not finished yet, and there may be changes to the Suntrust Bank Tower which there is talk of adding a 100 foot spire on top since it was recently sold.
