If I'm not mistaken that looks like a new one, and I love it!

Looks to be about 1000 or so to the roof.

That is not a new design. That rendering was revealed last year and represents the final design for the East tower (the one on the right) that is moving forward, but not necessarily the final design for the South tower. The height and programming of the South tower have not yet been determined.

A super tall is not impossible but it has never been the intention of the developers to build one here. We reached that conclusion based on enthusiatic speculation.

I SPECULATE that we end up with something in the low to mid 800' range.

Which would be a shame. I've said it before that Wolf Point would be an incredible stage to show off a supertall. And there's a historical factor there too.. with it being one of the oldest European building sites in the city.

True, but the renderings have constantly shown a 950-1000 foot building. Let's keep our fingers crossed.

because the south tower has yet to exist as anything other than a conceptual scheme up til this point in time.

when/if it ever becomes a real thing, it will be designed in earnest.

for now, the east tower has been designed and approved, and its construction start is anticipated any month now.

Thats because the East tower IS a thing. The rendering is OF the East tower. It's been approved, soil testing is taking place and groundbreaking is imminent.

I would love to see a supertall South tower as much as anybody else but them bananas ain't ripe yet.

Obviously not economical, but wouldnt it be better functionaly for the site to at least put foundation for the south lot. I guess what im getting at is how much more money is it going to cost to get part three going after tower two is constructed? Its going to take two hella cranes and alot of barges right against the river. Not impossible, just much more complicated.
This is why i am not an engineer. Haha.

Why put in a foundation for something that's not designed?
