Is south shore going on the Kentucky side, or the Ohio side of the border?

One Market Square's status is still in the air, due to poor sale (for a variety of reasons), they've been given until Thanksgiving to come up with a new or revized plan.

There's another proposal for Indianapolis, the InterContinental Hotel. It's 44 stories and is expected to be the city's second tallest (so it's over 530 ft.).

A few renderings from IndyBob over at SSC









I'll try to dig up the day time rendering, it's around here somewhere.

This is an incredibly good idea for a thread, Steely.

Just curious, though--why are you using 300 ft as a cutoff here as opposed to the 12 story cutoff you're using in the Chicago superthread? Also, I noticed you put an Evanston highrise on the list. Does that mean we should include Chicago suburban highrises here as well?

because i had to make a cut-off somewhere and i didn't feel like keeping track of every 15 story marriott suites proposal in suburban bumblefuck midwest. 300' is incredibly arbitrary, but it's a height that i feel seperates skyscrapers from mere highrises in most midwest cities and i'm really only interested in seeing what the tallest projects in the region are.

i included the evanston proposal because evanston doesn't get enough credit for itself being so completely hidden under the chicago shadow. if there were any other suburban chicago proposals that were 300+'/30+ floors, i would have included them as well, but currently no such projects exist.

The only thing that is really vertical proposed for downtown Cleveland is 515 Euclid Avenue. Which at 26 stories would be in the 300+ ft range.

Most everything else is clusters of residential or mixed use collections of buildings being built in phases one at a time in the 5-15 story range.

Pretty cool to see Milwaukee has the second tallest buliding under construction in the Midwest, right now.

I hadn't until now seen renderings of the Greektown;

But the first thing to pop in my mind was this:it reminds me of a waterd down version of the Ruvin proposal for Milwaukee, even though Greektown's design likely came first.

A few notes on buildings listed.

In Minneapolis:

The Carlyle is 469 ft/41 floors. This information comes directly from blueprints, and is revised down from 473 as originally published.

Two Twenty Two is 375 ft. This comes from the documentation submitted to the Minneapolis Planning Commission, which was approved. That rendering is the version that was approved, by Durrant Architects. They've since changed architects, but no rendering has been released

Eitel Hospital should be renamed. That elevation drawing is of the residential tower approved for 1368 LaSalle Avenue. The adjacent block contains the old hospital and is being renovated into apartments by the same developer.

In St. Paul:

The Penfield is 33 floors.

The Westin St. Paul is estimated around 364 ft. This comes from the Urban Areawide Review Mitigation Plan submitted in December 2004 to the State of Minnesota and City of St. Paul, and approved by the FAA (the site is moderately close to Holman Field, St. Paul's downtown airport, but not under a runway).


In Covington:

The Ascent at Roebling's Bridge in Covington is 293 ft. This comes from the project superintendent at Danis Building Company, the GC.

The Lindell aka Lindell Condominiums will be 310'. It will be 26 floors above grade and 2 below. $93 million in cost. I have all the info on it that you could ever possibly want from a meeting last year between opponents and the alderwoman for the area. Some NIMBY's from the surrounding streets tryed to get it cancelled, but lost. I got a front row seat during an internship with the alderwoman for the area.

^ Has that started contruction yet? In my past several visits to STL I always saw signs for that but wondered when it would start.

That's a great development for the CWE

^From what I understand, they are working on final details. The variance for the historic district has been granted, and that was the biggest hurdle. They seem to be wrapping up loose ends at this point. The schedule they released when these renderings came out had them wanting to start work in March or April 2007. I think this may get pushed back a couple of months because Opus has said that they want to start the Park East lofts project next to the Park East tower before they start The Lindell. The Park East Lofts are going to start construction once the staging area for the tower is cleaned up, because it is being built on this lot. The tower is nearly finished, and the some people are now moving in.

While I'm guessing that large highrise announcements are fairly infrequent in the greater midwest, this thread has the potential to be pretty significant, and I'd hate to see it have to get bumped all the time (esp since people may not know about its existence). This is skyscraperpage after all. Any thoughts about getting it stickied?
