You can see that the "limestone bands" are actually just a white fill with 50% opacity over the brick kicked out by the render software. Just some sloppy photoshop work -the bricks are literally visible still.
Based on massing, I'd say better. Materials, we will just have to wait and see.
Agreed here - I like the more classic design. Real (looking) brick, and a cornice! It seems like a real compliment in design to the 19th/20th century warehouses as opposed to the earlier proposal that took one element: brick. Either way, this location is going to produce one of the highest quality 5-1s this cycle.amiller92 wrote: ↑September 14th, 2018, 8:55 amMaybe I'm crazy (and I'm certainly less qualified that some of you), but this looks like a major improvement to me, with the massing of each half being much more congruous with the historical references. At an angle or at a distance, they look good and like separate buildings.
Saw crews onsite there yesterday marking up spaces on the ground. Hopefully they're able to get started on this on in early 2019.lordmoke wrote: ↑November 21st, 2018, 1:30 pmNew plans again from HPC: http://minneapolismn.gov/www/groups/pub ... 215460.pdf
