This is it. It is confirmed from the party this evening that the tower is 1047' with 65 floors. Here are the official pics from the unveiling at The Cumberland this evening.











Thanks to barakat over on UP for taking these shots.

That is really sweet looking. That also means that Nashville will be the 3rd tallest city in the US. It will knock Atlanta out of 3rd place and into 4th. Who would have thunk it. Way to grow Nashville.

Now, we need to see Nashville get a couple of more towers that are slightly less tall, so the Signature Tower doesn' look so out of place and weird. Glad to see Nashville get this tower...I love everything about the tower, outside of the bland crown. It looks like a modern day attempt at immitating the Empire State Building.

HOLY freaking GAWD that is quite a tower! Well done. Congrats to Nashville. I can only hope Wachovia's new tower in Charlotte gives this one a run for the money but I think it's a longshot.

Wow.

This was my first thought.



But I must say. I prolly like sig a whole lot more, buuuuuuuuuuut I do wish there was something a bit more.... strikingly never-seen-before about it.

Right after thinking of BoA, I thught of Jin Mao's tipy top crown, which I admit in retrospect is odd, but maybe not. It's like you have:
Jin Mao crown + BoA(and maybe Key Tower)= Sig



Not bashing at all. This thing is a flucking bombshell. ;)

Agreed.

Congrats Nashville. Still hard to believe this is a residential tower though.

Isn't Miami building something taller than this?

Sales begin in September with construction to begin on or before Jan. 31, 2007. I think it is to completed in 2009 (not 100% sure) and it has been mentioned that residents may begin living in the lower portion of the tower, by 2008, while the top is finished.

The skin of the building will appear blue on sunny days and have a silverish color when cloudy. The glass, diamond-shaped beacon at the top of the spire will shine at all times and serve as the FAA beacon

1,047 feet tall with 65 stories. The top 6 floors of penthouses will be 4,000 sq ft each with 24 ft windows

Amazing!! Nashville is a very progressive city and this will be a wonderful reflection of that.


The MDHA meeting is scheduled for sometime in the month of May. No later than the last day of the month, what day I am not sure of though.
