I love this project! It is very interesting and unique. I've driven by the site a couple of times and it is hard to imagine this building in the spot, it seems so small. This will be one of the most unique buildings in the USA, the only thing I don't like is the facade but I can live with it.

I have heard multiple people say this and I highly doubt that anybody is going to completely avoid the city since MP is going to be there so for that reason alone I will go ahead and say I like the building. I have gone back and forth on this project, but I do like the little design tweaks they have made to it and Im starting to like it more and more now. Can actually say Im looking forward to seeing this thing.

wow i cant wait for this thing to rise, looks like site prep has begun and the steel will start to rise by the late fall. also may i add how cool the construction photos will be. in their plan, they are going to build the bottom four legs first. then they are going to construct the center island at ground level and raise it up the four legs! then i think they are building the 3 towers atop the middle island after that, very cool stuff.

This is such a strange proposal... But, I really really like it. It's modern, different, and just plain sweet.

Now that the bill passed, is MP definately going to rise or are there still big things that need to be cleared in order for this building to go ahead with construction?

It will really be a large addition to Louisville's skyline and it looks exciting, but I must admit it is not beautiful. It is like 60s futurism.

Strange, but unique, looks like a deformed oil rig in skyscraper form!

I think this is a great building, and will look so different from every angle and view ! Complex and sophisticated and not just a single boring 450foot glass box !
