Downtown - North Loop - Mill District - Elliot Park - Loring Park
If you hire Bob Stern to design a luxury high rise, you know exactly what it's going to look like. I doubt developers are particularly perturbed by the criticism. My favorite thing with this project was when the Strib interviewed the lead architect at RAMSA and he claimed that the design was inspired by the details of the Warehouse District. It's pretty silly all around, but it clearly sells, and it's enough of a tried-and-true product that it never looks awful.
Maybe the design was inspired by the materials of the curbs and sidewalks in the warehouse district. There is no evidence of anything from the Warehouse District above that. No, this will probably not look awful, just unrelated to anything in its neighborhood.
They're aware that the warehouse district is waay on the other side of downtown, right?
I took a photo of the site on Saturday night. Not much activity yet, but they dug up some ground.
I biked through the lot and they marked the corners of the building with spray paint...that and maybe some utility work is all I saw. (I biked from the tunnel over to 11th Ave jumping the curb separating the two lots.
Has there been any announcement of an official ground breaking date? I thought there had been some talk of construction getting underway mid-August, but am surprised there hasn’t been more hooplas given the scale and cost of this project.
they've spent all their money on instagram ads and the project is now dead. i've never seen so many social media ads for a project with not even a ground breaking.
... you know they have to sell units... right?
I don't know about that. I've been getting Alia targeted ads on Instagram regularly as of late.
All I get are ads for Taltz.
