They forgot to mention that it would have a moat filled with sharks with laser beams plus each corner of the building will be equiped with a machine gun nest to keep those @#&^@# pedestrians away. Afterall, it is Portman we're talking about.

All I want is a link. I have little doubt that Portman could pull it off.

I have no doubt that this article is as phony as a three dollar bill.
  1. The Business Chronicle doesn't publish articles on Sunday.
  2. There is no vacant lot in the "Arts District".
  3. There is no "Arts District".
  4. Noone in Atlanta with a life gives a rats ass that Nashville is trying to build a bunch of overpriced condos in a building that's taller than anything in Atlanta. Its just silly.

in other news: Charlotte to build 1/2 scale Empire State Building. "This way, we will KNOW we are better and more historic than Raleigh."

-

p.s. i just checked to make sure that Raleigh is the city with the baby ESB and found a wikipedia article on ESB that talked about other buildings, saying that the Reynolds Tower was the first skyscraper in the southeast. editing Wikipedia is fun.

p.s.s. no need to edit Charlotte's entry. "Charlotte's penchant for looking ahead -- a drive for economic development that kicked into particularly high gear during the mid-to-late 20th century -- led to the destruction of a series of landmark buildings as the city's downtown expanded. Historically-driven preservationists often struggle to maintain old-city landmarks in the face of modern-minded boosters."

I think this is bullsh*t. I couldn't find it on the page for the Atlanta Business Chronicle, or the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Any luck searching for anyone else?

who said anything about nashville? got a chip on your shoulder? and btw, why is this thing so tall but only 70 stories? the sig will be 200ft shorter and has the same amount of floors and a 150-200 ft tall spire. is it going to have a 400 ft spire???

I did.

This phony article suggests the reason a developer would propose such a building is "showing the country that we are still the unofficial capital of the South". Since I doubt any developer in Atlanta would make such lame comment let alone propose a massive project for such a lame reason, I suspect the article comes from a forumer in a third tier city with a really tall building (though just a proposal) and we all know what city that is.

I'd be interested to see other postings by jeremy stephens.

so being a dick makes it ok to talk poorly about a city that wasn't even mentioned in the post? you're the one who brought up nashville. apparently you're the one who is more concerned on if nashville is going to build the signature or not. i don't see why any of that had to be brought up. this was simply a post about atlanta. i don't see what was so hard about that.

There is nothing wrong with Nashville. Atlanta is all right also.

Wow, just amazing !

Satalac, I was wondering the same thing about BOA in Atlanta. I read that it was only 55 stories and was wondering how it is the tallest building outside of NYC or Chicago. The spire helped out a lot.
