Not a fan of the explosive growth.

I understand the enthusiasm of the bigger is better crowd, but Greenville has lost it's charm for us. It is crowded like Mainstreet USA in Disney World.

Glad to see Greenville thriving, but not why we came here.

Why are you so afraid of a little height?

But if everyone else came here for the same reasons that you did, what did you expect? Secrets don't remember secrets forever.

Achieving vertical growth should not be a stretch. There have been opportunities to maximize developments with mid and high rises. There has been too much status quo with dull low rise developments.

I just think it's ugly. They don't make skyscrapers like they used too. Everything has gone minimal and glassy because costs are so high now, or condo focused. If this building is going to potentially dominate the skyline, I'd like it to have some character.

The 505 in Nashville, literally everything going up in Austin, One City Center in Durham, Icon Midtown in Atlanta are examples of what I don't want to see. Greenville is also so boxy, like Los Angeles, I'd love to see something more pointed or sloped. The Legacy Union aka 620 South Tryon that's being built in Charlotte would be perfect for Greenville imo.

That Legacy Union building is a nice looking building - at least from that picture!

Looks like a pyramid on top of a boxy building.

It's still better than the Landmark building, and whatever is on the first page.

Of course you like it, it's base is southern red brick, lol. Honestly, it's kinda ugly, but to each his own.
