You have any other info on the Hyatt expansion to share? I had not even heard of this.

Here's a rendering of the Westin St. Paul that Steely asked for. It's obviously the taller tower on the right. It's part of the massive Bridges of St. Paul project.

There is a Four Seasons hotel currently under construction on the St. Louis riverfront and I understand that it's going to be over 300 ft.

There is a thread about it at UrbanOhio's P&C forum. It along with two other condo towers currently u/c (though I don't know their heights, they are atleast pushing 300).

The renderings are below. It will be 25 floors, so it could be tall enough. I can't find an actual height.

I checked it out. There was a pic of the proposal..*shudder*. I guess they just want it to match the ugly dark sideways slab-on-stilts that is already there...of which the only saving grace is that it was limited to 20 floors(fortunately).
There is a ColDayMan that is listed as the adminstrator there..that would be you right?

Yes, that would be me.

The proposal for the "Bridges of St Paul" project was withdrawn by the developer yesterday which means no Westin Tower for St Paul. Something will probably be built there but I doubt it will be a tower.

To each his own, I guess. This is one of my favourite projects in the country.

The project was probably never going to happen anyway. The developer was fishing for a $120 million subsidy from the city. That is a lot of money for a city the size of St Paul. Had it gone forward St Paul ran the risk of subsidising a project that could crash the city condo market and cut property tax revenues. It just didn't make sense to do it.

IMO the cancellation of the Bridges makes the Penfield much more likely to happen.

I agree wholeheartedly with Drewcifer. The Disneyesque components notwithstanding, Bridges was still the wrong project for the wrong site at the wrong time.

No ffense, but I don't care for either of them. And why wasn't the 71 storie building in St. Louis mentioned ??
