I didn't notice the base and don't care about bricks. As I said I like it because Greenville's skyline is blocky and flat and Legacy Union is not. It's also one seemingly rare skyscraper that is being built these days that nots all blue glass.

I would much rather see that in downtown Greenville than this https://www.gannett-cdn.com/-mm-/71d...t=712&fit=crop.

Oh I'm not afraid of height at all and I wouldn't mind seeing Greenville's skyline grow up a little bit. I just find the reasons for disparaging a lack of height to be off base.

Only if you conflate lowrise/midrise buildings with "old timey" buildings would you consider the response irrelevant.

High-rise buildings only make financial sense in places where the cost of land is astronomical. I can't imagine a high-rise in Greenville ever being more cost-effective than having two mid-rise buildings next to each other.

This market is moving in that direction. I think Greenville will see a 20+ story condo/hotel/office mix use building in the next five years.
