Pickwick Plaza. A huge project taking about about 3/4 of a block.

For the time being it's in a sort-of remote part of downtown. I'm sure other stuff will be built around it over time, there's sure enough parking lots and junky buildings to put a lot of new development in this area!



"Union Bus Terminal"





These next 2 are the back side of the development. Not sure exactly what's going in here, doesn't really look like it'll be residential?



Can't tell from this pic but those are all new windows.

Thanks for the photos! Yeah, it's the renovation of the Brookfield Building-boutique hotel and apartments on the upper floors. Too bad Marriott can't reopen the upper floors of the old Muehlebach hotel next store. Baltimore Avenue is probably one of my favorite streets downtown.

On a side note, I keep hoping to run into you guys sooner or later. I was running the downtown delivery route last week. It's not my favorite route, deliverywise, but being in and around all of this construction taking place, not to mention future plans, it's exciting to see it all coming together.

This was definitely a building I wondered about for years why there was no interest in renovating it. Now, it's good to see it taking place. Better late than never, I suppose.

Final (I think but hope not) Blueprints of the Hyatt Medical center (Convention Hotel) were released today. Disappointing but i guess we'll all have to deal with it...
I guess they just said "Screw the pedestrian experience"
