^how do you snake their renderings from the flash crap?
Jan 19, 2007, 8:21 PM

Jan 19, 2007, 8:31 PM
^yep, those are the rendering they have...I couldn't find your last thread on this tower...I miss the search function!

yah supposedly we are getting it back when we get a new server but it hasn't happened yet...

I don't think those designs are current any longer. Thankfully.

I thought Williams and Dame were looking at developing the block south of Atwater? Are they considering developing both blocks at the same time?
I wonder how long it will be until W&D or G-E pairs up with some company like Guardian to build apartments? No respectable developer would let Trammell Crow be the only one with a high priced apartment tower?

Last I heard the block south of Atwater was being re-designed to be cheaper to build (less geometric action) after some folks got cold feet. I doubt Atwater sales are helping. Apartments must be more likely than condos at this point.

how are the sales for atwater doing?

^ Sloooooooow as molasses. Block 27 doesnt look any more boring than the meriwether IMO.

I'd like to see a couple of perfectly round towers on the block, kinda like that one in the 'Couv...
The next block north is supposed to be a hotel, right?

i want to see some really slender point towers in sowa (like benson tower skinny)

11 months later... anyone heard anything?
can we presume on hold as the market shakes itself out?

Wow another 11 months have gone by... Any news? They planted some grass on this block last I walked by.
Nov 15, 2008, 2:52 AM
all or much of the dirt that was excavated from the Mirabella ended up on block 27. I suspect they planted grass just to tidy up the area, and minimize erosion and summer dust, since development on this site is probably years away now, unfortunately.
I also wonder if they'll open this new grassy area up for dog owners once they start construction of South Waterfront Neighborhood Park?
