Local Life - Batman

Not quite but we have a local landmark nicknamed "the batman building" because of the shape of the roofline. Real name the AT&T Building - yep our local phone company. Tis currently the tallest building in Nashville (617ft.), some say also Tennessee, and when you are driving south into the city it's about the first part of the skyline you see. In 2009 "Le Journal de Net" named "the batman" one of the 12 most original office buildings in the world. It definitely adds drama to Nashville's night-time skyline. Daytime it towers over all the downtown historic buildings and changes color from grey-ish blue to bright blue depending upon the weather.

I love the 'ears' rising above the downtown skyline, I always think....we are now in Gotham City ;)
