yep, cant have logos published in the paper. I'm working on a sweet night time skyline rendering viewed from the depot and the Lincoln Financial Building is included. This one is going to take a little longer to draw but its looking awesome so far and its amazing how one tower like that can really alter Greensboro's skyline. stay tuned! I must say having a two tier design keeps the tower from standing out too much. It almost looks like two towers and adds some serious density.

Interesting that they failed to even mention the building by name, or note that Carroll is supposedly looking to build such a building. Instead they referred to it simply as a "skyscraper". Doesn't sound like Roy is very interested in the project anymore.

It appears that it was never really viable to begin with and he knew it. This seems to be a trend in Greensboro.

I agree with your first sentence. Disagree with your second. G'boro has a pretty impressive d'town revitalization going on right now.

It was never meant to be an official rendering for his project. Its just presenting the general idea of what he has planned. That's why it was published in the first place. I have heard from a few folks around town that he is indeed interested and Roy Carroll has been showing my rendering around.

Why is the project not viable? It's not a pie in the sky proposal. Remember 3 office towers totalling more square footage than Roy Carrolls proposal were built in the late 1980s. Its happened before, it can happen again. With the growth trends in downtown Greensboro today it's only a matter of when not if.
