No work when I stopped by but they're definitely driving piles into the ground.

Any word if Dranoff is going to take down that eyesore of a billboard after this gets built?

I wonder if any prospective buyers asked about the billboard? Especially those who can't quite afford river-facing units.

Dranoff refers to One Riverside as a "supermodel," because Cecil Baker designed it tall and thin, with the smallest footprint to accommodate the most open space.

"A thinner building is more expensive," Dranoff said, "but I didn't want a cookie-cutter one."

I think the design is fine but I'm not sure about repeating that it's tall and slender and expensive as if it's Mandeville Place or something. To me, it looks fairly generic and is neither significantly tall nor slender.

I dont think the design is anything special but its obvious they are putting some extra money into this building to make it something different. Based on the article this isn't being done to the lowest common denominator. I think much of what was mentioned cant be seen in the exterior design- they used a specialized column design to minimize intrustion into the units and they spent extra to totally submerge the garage in a floodplain.
