Cool. The elevations weren't attached yet when I last looked at the file. Despite the rendering, I'm going with 358'/33-stories as the height based on a preponderance of evidence.

Yep... everyone likes the pretty pictures until they find out how much those details cost and how much sellable space is lost on beautiful sweeping angles.
Sad but true.
I agree it lost it's edge.

The site plan was approved and released today. The elevations are included, and there doesn't look to be any changes from what we already knew.

It's been over two months since the site plan was approved, and there has been nothing but crickets - until this morning. A permit was filed this morning for the construction of this thing. I would feel better about its chances if the developer would announce a groundbreaking. But at least it's moving forward.

My source says it is definitely moving forward.

A new Statesman update tonight says groundbreaking is expected by the end of the year. Although the article indicates the design hasn't been finalized and financing has not been secured.

The tower crane plans were posted today. It'll have two cranes.

That's progress. But they haven't filed for the crane permit yet. I'm surprised this is going to the AULCC. I haven't been keeping track, but it seems like projects going through that step haven't gotten their site plan approved yet.

After reading the AULCC meeting notes, I see why this is going through the AULCC process. They need to move overhead power lines to install the tower crane. There is another note that says the estimated construction period would be from this October through January 2020.

I hope the most recent rendering stuck as the final design. I thought it looked like a very sleek and classy building. I liked the black beams that extended up into the crown and the a jagged pattern of the windows on the side.
