  1. New Official BAT Request Thread

    Hey, well im trieng to somewhat make a skyline of phoenix arizona. But there are'nt many BATs that have Phoenix skyscrapers. I was wondering if anyone would be able to create these buildings. Please and thanks very much 1- Phoenix Chase tower 40 stories hxTallest1.jpg">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image hxTallest1.jpg The Chase Tower (formerly known as Valley Bank Center and Bank One Center) in Phoenix, Arizona is the tallest building in the state of Arizona. Built in 1972, it is 483 feet (147 meters) tall. It was originally built for local financial heavyweight Valley National Bank, which Bank One acquired in 1994. Bank One merged with Chase in 2005, and the building was renamed in December 2005. It is 40 stories tall but the highest occupiable floor is the 38th, where the private Arizona Club Restaurant is located. There is no observation area in the Chase Tower. Unlike many traditional skyscrapers with zero-setback retail/lobby space on the ground floor, access to the tower is through an underground restaurant/retail concourse set a comparatively large distance away from the bordering streets. The building was designed by the prominent Los Angeles-based architectural firm Welton Becket and Associates (now Ellerbe Becket). Upon completion, the tower marked the beginning of a renewed investment in downtown Phoenix that would last for almost twenty years until the savings and loan crisis brought about the 1989 real estate crash. Located at 201 North Central Avenue, the tower was renovated in 2003 to accommodate 800 additional Bank One employees. In March 2007, Chase Tower was sold for record $547.9 million, the highest price paid for an office building in the western United States. 2- Us Bank Center 31 stories http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:US_Bank_Bldg.jpg https://brenet.brephoenix.com/filecabinet/Property/008822/US%20Bank%20Center1.jpg The US Bank Center is a highrise in Phoenix, Arizona. It is the second tallest building in the state of Arizona. Built in 1976, it is 407 feet (124 meters) tall. When it was built it served as the headquarters for The Arizona Bank. Bank of America then occupied the tower until 2000 when the Bank of America Tower was built at the Collier Center. In January, 2005, this tower was renamed U.S. Bank Center and underwent a modest renovation to reflect the building's newest and largest tenant. New ground-floor restaurants were added and the building was repainted. The new U.S. Bank signs were installed in February, 2005. The building is designed in the International Style. Above the lobby sits a 7 level garage. The tower rises an additional 23 floors for a total of 31 above ground floors. 3- viad Tower 24 stories hxTallest5.jpg">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image hxTallest5.jpg The Viad Tower is a highrise in Midtown Phoenix, Arizona also known as the Viad Corporate Center and formerly the Dial Tower. The tower was constructed in 1991 for the Dial company, which is why the building resembles a Dial soap bar. It rises 374 feet (114 meters), topping out at 24 floors. It was designed in the modern style by HKS, Inc. Originally, the tower was supposed to have a twin, rotated 90 degrees from the current tower, but due to the Savings and Loan Crisis of the 1980's and 90's, the tower was dropped. Today, the Viad Tower stands as Phoenix's most prominent skyscrapers, being located next door to the Phoenix Art Museum, its large landscaped public park featuring many statues and fountians, and its visible location on Central Avenue between Downtown Phoenix and Midtown Phoenix. After its completion in 1991, the Viad Tower was the last major skyscraper to be constructed in Midtown. 4- 3300 North Central 27 stories http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:3300.jpg http://www.emporis.com/en/il/im/?id=440893 3300 North Central Avenue (also known as 3300 Tower) is a high-rise located along Central Avenue in Uptown Phoenix, Arizona, United States. The tower rises 27 floors and 356 feet (109 m) in height.[1] Designed by Skidmore, Owings and Merrill, 3300 North Central Avenue was built in 1980.[2] Upon completion, it stood as the fourth-tallest building in Phoenix and the tallest building outside of Downtown Phoenix. Today, it stands as the 11th-tallest building in the city. Like its next door neighbor, the Great American Tower, 3300 North is rotated 45 degrees from the street grid. It is, however, an eight sided building with a 45 degree angle cut into each of the four corners. The building is covered with reflective glass with the exception of the corners, the crown and the lobby, which expose the concrete construction. 3300 North was designed at a time when the architectural trend was shifting away from the International Style and towards Post Modernism and thus, has elements of both architectural styles.
