Not sure if anyone has seen this, but I don't recall it being posted previously. Found a fly-around video of Palm Court Tower. It's low res and not in color. But it does give a really good idea of how it will improve the massing of the block which I think will really look good once built.

How tall was the AC Marriott supposed to be again? Looks pretty tall in the video...unless not to scale

AC Hotel is not actually in the video. It will go in the space circled in red in the snippet below. It's proposed at 15 floors which will put it around 180'ish.

It is 15 floors and it should be about 2/3's the height of the APS building next door.

Thanks for posting, although I found it to be a rather annoying video.

I was searching for anything indicating Made boutique/gallery closing but it seems it will be incorporated into the project and remain open. I mean if this project is a go, this is an all around win-win! I’m still a bit confused if there’s already application being filed for this property why a kickstarter page exists. I mean, if they’re already moving forward they would be set back if they didn’t achieve their kickstart goal, right?

Also, on their Kickstarter blurb about the project, there’s some cool sketch renderings showing that it will add a new building to the lot currently occupied by the shipping containers along Roosevelt with a beer garden between.

I'm providing evidence and responding with pie-in-the-sky arguments is silly and annoying.

1) Link phase 1 is on a half acre lot. Literally less than a fifth the size. Completely not possible to compare the two.

2) Not anything is possible. Developers are working to make a profit in a third-tier metro.

3) I was right.

You disagree then agree with me in two sentences. Weird.

Stewart is on .8 acres.

Do you guys just have no concept of how this works? Like, how unrealistic it is to have a highrise with a 2.7 acre lot size (we don't do "towers in the park" anymore) and how much bigger that is than < 1 acre?

I was simply addressing your claim that "322 units is not enough to build a high-rise" and to your new claim that its unrealistic to do a highrise on 2.7 acres, the Union Tempe is 20 and 12 story "high-rise" on over 3 acres. I rest my case.

Union Tempe has 31,000 sqft of retail and 607 total hotel and residential units on a similar size block (3.22 acres). It is 188 du/acre. That's highrise density, even without the retail.

Fore Fillmore is 119 du/acre is dense for woodframe but not the densest lately and compares very close with Fore's other property on Central and Columbus.

Your insinuating that I had no idea what I was talking about when I was right speaks for itself. Moroeover, my being right wasn't coincidental, I track these projects deeper than you.

self-worth should not be dependent on whether or not you are right on the internet.

I'm watching them finally tear down the apartments on 3rd and mckinley from my office window. Quite interesting they had to do so much prep work before the actual tear down came, I assume remediation of lead and/or asbestos?

I'm not going to let shit slide regardless of who it's from. Do not make this personal.

There are many reasons for you to not do so.

Also, I'm done. There will be no more posts about this.

Looks like cafe space fronting McKinley, I hope that happens.

Oh nice! I checked the assessor site and those lots still show as owned by the city, so I wasn't sure. Thanks for clarifying. This will be a great project for the area and start to tie in the other McKinley townhome developments.
