New annexations!

Just had to keep you guys posted on the new developments for the Pueblo Metro area. According to the Pueblo Chieftain on Monday December 24 there are at least 3 more annexations going to take place and probably more. In one of the annexations the developers want to build a scientific park by the university to get scientific based companies to move to pueblo! That would be awesome and I believe boasts Pueblo's chances of getting some high rises in downtown before long.

I'm not sure where you found that information, but that is not the way buildings are officially measured. Things like antennas, flagpoles, masts and signs are not counted as the official height. These are temporary structures that might only serve one type of tenant. Let's say the building is an office building with an antenna on the roof, but then the building becomes vacant at some point and then is turned into residential. It would likely be renovated and the antenna would probably be removed. This has happened many times before. Unless a rooftop structure is part of the design and is intended to be permanent, it shouldn't be counted. Anyway, this is an age old debate/argument and this is not the place for it.

There is a thread posted at the link below where it's being discussed though.

If antennas count, then the USA has 57 structures (built or under construction) taller than the Freedom Tower going up in New York. They are called communications towers. They are giant antennas.

Here's the link to the diagram Eeyore, check it out...

As for the hope of Pueblo getting to high-rises soon... What I would hope for is that all those parking lots along the nice River Walk downtown Pueblo, soon get built up with quality, mixed-use low to mid-rises. That would transform your city bro! Really, a dozen low to mid-rises (in the 4 to 12 story range), would make downtown Pueblo vibrant and interesting.

I agree however I would not mind a few highrises above 20 stories in up town.
