Wow, I knew Kildares was going out, but it looks like the Colony apartment building was razed also.

Here's a pic I took of the site back in July:

I got a couple of pics yesterday of a couple of projects downtown.

First is the Rise tower on the east end. Not great pics, but at least it's underway:








Next is the Metropolitan:

from the south





from the north

Was in State College last weekend and drove by the Metropolitan site. The envelope isn't quite complete and lots of steel beams showing inside. Checked their FB page out of curiosity and they are still telling residents about move in on Aug 1x. That's six weeks out. While I don't know a ton about tower construction, doesn't finish work still take several months? Wonder what they'll do if 500+ students can't move in before classes start and have to house somewhere during football weekends. Glad that ain't my problem!

Something similar happened at the University of Pittsburgh. They had to put up students in hotels until the building was complete. State College does not have nearly enough hotel capacity for that, though. Should be interesting.

The Residences at College and Atherton - the huge proposal at College and Atherton - has been given conditional zoning approval by borough council. Interesting conditions include:

-a mid-block crossing, allowing pedestrian to cross through/under the building from College to Calder Alley.

-Design modifications, including setbacks, to reduce the "monolithic" look of the initial design.

among a few other rather standard things.

Both of these conditions seem both fair and necessary for the site.
