If the rendering is even somewhat accurate, the building looks to be right around 400 feet tall. The Riverwalk building next door is 100 feet tall to give you some idea: https://www.hughesinvestments.com/riverwalk/

“Hughes Investments has never failed to construct what we have announced. We will only announce projects that we are fully committed to completing, not studies that are still under consideration. We appreciate when quality architects present us with interesting and exciting concepts such as this – these are compelling surveys of what could happen,” they said.

Yuck.

Personally, I think the charm of downtown Greenville is the lack of very tall buildings. Let's turn it into every city you ever saw. I really hate it.

Couldn't disagree more, nothing "charming" about being midrised to death. This project is awesome!

I didn't know that lower buildings couldn't be charming. All this time, I thought it was all about architectural details.

You must really hate historic Charleston.

They can be, but when 95% of your skyline consists of them they become a bit monotonous and start to look like a business park in suburban Northern Virginia.
