Skyscrapers That Take Southern Hospitality To The Ultra-Deluxe Level

Share this Post!

Remember Gone with the Wind? That epic historical romance film, adapted from Margaret Mitchell’s 1936 novel. The movie is set in the American South against the backdrop of the American Civil War and tells the love story of the beautiful, strong-willed Southern belle, Scarlett O’Hara, and the sexy, kind-hearted rogue, Rhett Butler. The only thing more memorable than the epic love story itself is the film’s real estate that ends up being a cinematographic ode to the grand Southern homes rich in architecture and stunning design.

Notwithstanding the above, these days below the Mason-Dixon line, contemporary skyscrapers seem to be the South’s preferred design. The iconic allée of moss-covered trees and vast lands are slowly becoming part of a bygone era; today’s Southern homes are about vertical living, built high enough to exhibit the glorious and the most compelling contemporary architectural elements featured today.

Imagine the sequel to Gone with the Wind being filmed today. What would the real estate look like? Scarlett would surely get Rhett back and the couple would, perhaps, be in search of finding a new home that exudes 21st-century grand style Southern luxury living. The sequel’s real estate would likely include one of the sensational Southern towers described below. And the movie’s trailer would be of Rhett, with bourbon in hand and smirk on his face, saying to Scarlett: Frankly my dear, it’s time for neither of us to give a damn. Let’s live indulgently in one spectacular skyscraper that takes Southern hospitality to new heights.
