I have no problem with it. It is just that when I saw 3 levels of underground I thought so many levels above ground would be overkill for spaces. But I have no idea how many Sexton contracts they would be having to fill. With 7 stories of parking on the 4 Marq, I sure can handle 3-4 on this tower. Especially if it allows some of the smaller apartment building in the area to do contract parking and we get rid of a few more parking lots that are used for those units.FISHMANPET wrote:It's almost like the free market is able to provide parking without heavy handed intervention from the zoning code!
Downtown - North Loop - Mill District - Elliot Park - Loring Park
Almost done with the subgrade parking, they take a one floor breather and then do how many more levels of podium parking. Still have close to a month of parking levels before they start working on the residential floors I'd guess.
I know someone posted a link to a Portland Tower construction cam somewhere but I can't find it in either this thread or the "Construction Webcams" thread. Driving west on 94 yesterday I spotted a second crane in the same area.
^^^In a way, it looks better as the tower and podium colors blend in better compared to the previous version. But gray can look pretty dull and cold, and the building might appear pretty severe, especially in the winter. I dont know, but I sometimes wonder if this developer is color blind or something.
The parking podium looks like its squashing the retail space making it appear shorter than it is. None of Stanton's projects are very pedestrian oriented on the first level. Maybe the Portland side will be better.seanrichardryan wrote:The ceilings in the retail space look to be about 7.5'
I love the all glass-walled living room opening onto the angled balconies. It adds a dimension that effectively confuses my eye into believing it's not a basic box tower.
