I have heard rumors of plans for a new development to include a hotel and apartment. Also, to include a daycare and fitness studio. Word is that it will be shorter than the original. Hopefully, the lack of heigth will be offset by an interesting design.

That would be cool. Doesn’t necessarily have to be super tall. I would be more concerned about the mix of uses.

Interesting that, in a six-month or so period where (almost) every other proposal in downtown has finally broken through the six-story barrier, that this one would get dropped down to six stories.

Shorter doesn’t mean six stories, the original proposal was 12.

As long as the building has a good street frontage, I don’t necessarily care if it’s tall or not.

Funny story I was walking Downtown with a coworker and he looked at this building and noticing they topped it out and logically said, "I thought they were going to make that taller?"

Say what you will about the height of this building, but the Armory looks much more 'in place' now that something tall-ish is across the street from it.
