I have no emotional attachment to this terrible/ awful land-use. What's next, preserving the asphalt plant to the south?
Asphalt is the 'terrazzo" of 70's.

Re: Gateway Tower (Four Seasons/RBC) - 43 stories - 513'

About 40 people from the four seasons have been staying at the hotel that I work at. I mentioned to a couple different guests that we were excited to have them as neighbors. All of them said that a hotel here is rumors only. That the media has promoted it but there's nothing official. So maybe it's...

Anyone snapped a picture of the demo today? I assume it is being "disassembled" rather than imploded.

Re: Gateway Tower (Four Seasons/RBC) - 43 stories - 513'

There won't be a sign on top - the city is extremely clear on that... I think the allowance on the Wells Fargo Towers were truly an exception... The city has no intention of seeing names on the tops of prominent buildings. I'm sure RBC would like to push this issue - but I highly doubt it will get a...

Re: 200 Central - Alatus Tower (Washburn-McReavy Site) 483' / 40 Stories

To me the threat is if the economy at large tanks... experts say there is still major appetite for urban living and apartments and the condo market has been grossly underserved/under-marketed for about a decade. I think what feels different for me with this boom is that the housing prices haven't go...

Re: Nord Haus - 315 1st Ave NE (208' - 20 Stories)

My brother in-law works in the steel industry - he buys and sells to large manufacturers like Carrier in Indiana... he said that Trumps whole tariff stunt has created chaos. It's made it so volatile. It was so fragile before and this has been terrible. Such a bummer right now because the market dema...

Re: Alatus Residential Project - 228 South 12th Street (31 stories - ~350'/415')

I live in Whittier and I think it would e great to have more light on this side of downtown. The south side of downtown gets really dark and because of the convention center it is a bit walled off. I keep imagining how great that could be from the long drive up 35 from the Crosstown...
