Best New Office Building 

Pinnacle at Symphony Place

Finally, Nashville has a skyscraper with a finely detailed glass curtain wall that proudly acknowledges its contemporary provenance. Courtesy of its energy-saver reflective coating, Pinnacle shimmers on the skyline like a desert mirage—hence its nickname "The Phantom." The green roof atop the six-story parking garage—with its garden cafe ambiance—turns sustainability into tenant amenity. OK, the proportions of the tower are a little stubby. But the architects at New Haven's Pickard Chilton firm have nevertheless set a benchmark for future designers to live up to. CHRISTINE KREYLING
