Im still waiting on the Banks. Till the Banks is finished, then it would be nice to see Queen City Square start.

^ meh, i see it more as a bishops hat than a bad hair day, but whatever. the crown is so kooky that i actally kinda like it, and those that know me on this forum know that i am no fan of the postmodern, but this one is so extreme i think it works.

FIGHT? No, not at all. Everyone's entitled to their opinions, and each person has their own different tastes and preferred styles. I'm still very new here, so I'm not trying to make waves. Just making conversation - trying to learn more about people and the projects they like (or dislike, in this case).

Thoughts about this building? I think it's a gigantic jukebox that is a mixture of Rosie from The Jetsons and Pee Wee's Playhouse's toilet seat. It's trash. Cincinnati should've atleast built the giant "Heroin Needle" in Newport.

The crown? What crown? It's an elongated St. Louis Arch, filled in with Photoshop CS2, stretched in SketchUp, and plopped over a blue-shaded Chemed Center. It's bad. How can you like it? And THEN over the Convergys/Atrium towers...tsk tsk.

What would work better? Perhaps a glass structure about 500ish that would reflect Mt. Adams' Immaculata Church. Or maybe a giant palm tree with signs saying "Miami, Florida, 1,000 miles." ANYTHING but Robbie the Robot, please.

And on a serious note, if we are going to be building a "tallest" in Cincinnati, atLEAST put it on 5th and Race Street.
Invented architecture, huh? Wow, you're still going pretty strong for your age!

Well, nice to meet you. I guess we have differing opinions about the building design, but that's okay. As I said above, everyone has their own likes and dislikes. I think the crown is interesting, but maybe that won't be the final design for the building. (Or is it?)

^Thus, Robbie the Robot.

And don't worry secondson, you seem like a nice guy. But we'll agree to disagree about the crown.

I can't believe that's Phase I next to it, Phase II makes Phase I look like an extended lobby.

That wasn't a model rendering shown previously but an artistic rendering.

Nice try, young one.

The rendering is irrelevent, but the building is not.

BTW, I'm older than you.

Robbie notwithstanding, I would think the space inside the crown would be breathtaking. Perfect for a ballroom or something like that. Does anyone know what it's supposed to be?

Since when is any mortal older than God?

Keep trying, rookie.

Shorten the crown but make the building taller so that if its going to be the new tallest, at least it'll beat the Carew Tower by a couple of floors.

And then I remind myself that this is Cincinnati we're talking about. It ain't gonna get built.

I don't mind the crown, though it looks like a giant clam. Then again it kind of reminds me of the Chrysler crown, but flattened.

I just looked at the close up pic, and it looks like a fan.

Like Phase I, right?

Just like a suburbanites' way of thinking ... what part of Cincinnati did you grow up again?

Newtown. We couldn't live in Anderson Township because they found out my dad's a Kentuckian and my mom's from Milford.

Ah ha!

Good to see that you are still in the loop of things ... you know ... pretty extrordinary living 2,000 miles away. Very impressive, I must say (must be the knowledge of the much-delayed Enquirer).

Okay, not sure if I'm supposed to do this or not, since I altered someone else's design and rendering. If the mods need to remove this, I understand. But how about a taller version, minus the crown....?



Forgive my poor attempt at creating some sort of roof.

No, that looks about how I'd like Queen City Square to look if its going to be Cincinnati's new tallest.
