Re: LPM Apartments - (1368 LaSalle Avenue)

Here are a couple images from last night - it's definitely becoming more visible - and the footprint of the base from this distance makes this thing look huge. http://www.twincitiesphotography.com/photos/i-8DLnpHQ/0/X3/i-8DLnpHQ-X3.jpg http://www.twincitiesphotography.com/photos/i-bTkQhhc/0/X3/i-bTk...

Re: Loring Vue Apartments - (415 Oak Grove Street)

I didn't say they wouldn't notice - I said they probably won't mind. I don't know that they really care about their patio area like some people do. I've lived in this area 15 years and have an overview of their patio deck and it is very, very rare that I have seen this family sitting out on their pa...

Re: Loring Vue Apartments - (415 Oak Grove Street)

I don't think they will mind - I can see their deck from my balcony and rarely have seen them on their patio deck - couple times a summer if that.

Re: Loring Vue Apartments - (415 Oak Grove Street)

Their website seems to have been updated with some newer images of the interior of the building and some units. Some of the shots seem like they are more appropriate for a furniture catalog thought - there are definitely people living in this property now - not alot but I do see some units lit up at...

Re: Loring Park Apartments - (1368 LaSalle Avenue)

What's the display issue exactly?
Seems odd the text can be displayed so wide and images can't - especially when they used to display larger.

Photo Size Limit - 500 pixels wide?

Seems like a 500 pixel wide image limit is now in force - why is this?

Most people have larger monitors these days - why the small size?? Anyone have any info on this - we used to be able to post larger size images until today??

Re: Loring Park Apartments - (1368 LaSalle Avenue)

Here are some photos from Friday - sorry for the tiny images - for some reason we are now being limited to images that are less than 500 pixels wide - are we in a time warp - is this 1998 internet? http://www.twincitiesphotography.com/photos/i-S8tLcw7/0/X3/i-S8tLcw7-X3.jpg http://www.twincitiesphoto...

Re: Loring Park Apartments - (1368 LaSalle Avenue)

wouldn't this be considered more residential than commercial - and doesn't that first exception seem to imply it could be heated?

Re: Loring Park Apartments - (1368 LaSalle Avenue)

It would be pretty odd given the rents they will charge for this place if that parking area was not fully enclosed and heating -

Re: Loring Park Apartments - (1368 LaSalle Avenue)

It took about 12-14 months of construction for Loring Vue. I would guess we are looking very late 2014.

Re: Loring Park Apartments - (1368 LaSalle Avenue)

Made me laugh a bit to read this sentence - isn't this exactly what alot of these goofy neighborhood groups have been arguing about for so many other buildings that are proposed - that they are out of scale with the rest of the neighborhood - and here they approved this building - hopefully it's a g...

Lobby Photos

Here are few images of the lobby area - it seems to be coming along. I think there might actually be a few units in this building that are being lived in at this time - even though works continues on the interior there are a couple units on the upper floors on the front side that I've seen people wa...

Night Lights

Walking home tonight I noticed a couple things about Loring Vue - it appears the rooftop has some lighting installed now - I can't tell if this is a penthouse balcony area - or if this is some shared outdoor patio area. Based on a mailing I got last fall I'm thinking this is the shared patio area - ...

It was taken in panoramic mode on my iphone - it's very wide angle - may not look like it to you though.
