Among the flashy renderings Detroit developer Village Green released of planned changes to the 800 City Tower Apartments was a dramatic view of the mid-century skyscraper with fireworks in the distance through the Louisville skyline. And we can only assume those were Thunder fireworks.
But how well do those renderings match up with reality? Now we know. In a recent Facebook post, the 800 City Tower shared views of Thunder taken from high up inside the tower. And we decided to mash them into the building’s renderings.
Of course, the rendered view features a vantage point higher than the tower’s top floor, but short of investing in a helicopter or drone, these mashups give us an idea of what the architects were going for with this view.
What do you think? How do the reality views compare to the rendered ones? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
