Ok, the Capital Center. I have never lived in Columbia, so I didn't know the proper name of the building. Sorry. Only one tower before this one proposed for here was supposed to be a new state's tallest, but it never really got past the planning stages thanks to rising construction costs. I think this one has a little better chance due to the fact the developer already sent in money to close the deal and the city along with the arena district is saying things look promising regarding this potential highrise. I will; however, not hold my breath on this one until I see a tower crane go up on site and the building starts to rise. Also, residential is starting to have more feet on each floor than office is. Take a look at the Pinnacle on Main for example of that: http://www.pinnacleonmain.com/ Other than that, it sounds like you're jealous.OK first it is not and has not ever been called the Suntrust, Its has always been called Capital Center. Also do you know the height of residental floor in relation to office floors this will be well under Capital Centers 349 foot mark now this maybe the Tallest in Greenvale but this once again fails to break Columbia rein. And as well let me know when they poor the base, till then its another waste of forum space , i mean hell how man states tallest have you guys had these past two years? Three four and man those imginary buildings look really nice in the Greenville Skyline
Well, not all new highrises do, but some like the Pinnacle on Main will. It's hard to say if this one will be like that or not. Remember, I didn't say this definitely would become a new state's tallest, I said it could. Also, not all of the project is going to be residential. Seven to ten floors of it will be a hotel too. I can't argue with that last part you said, that's for sure. Our 12-story Peacock Hotel and Spa just got downsized to eight stories and it looks hideous from looking at the new rendering.Since when do residential towers have more height per floor than office towers. If this gets built and is the state's tallest, I will congratulate Greenville, but as we know, there is a history of announced projects not coming to fruition.
