Well that really sucks that they didn't keep the old smokestack, this town is such a epic failure with keeping aesthetics. I know you guys are so vanilla that you'll all are probably like why would you want to keep that ugly thing

some drugs might really help with that putting sentences together in a coherent fashion thing. It's quite possible that you had something interesting to say but I could not make heads or tails from what you wrote.

He thinks that we're too plain to see the aesthetic in keeping the smokestack with the new development. The rendering actually looked quite colorful, I don't see how keeping an old, gray, ultimately useless stack helps here. If this was a brick or concrete design it might have worked.

Whether one likes the aesthetic or not, I can't see how there would be much point in keeping this disembodied stack in place as it appears that it would be hidden by the building regardless.

Just looked at google maps and seeing what was there before, this will be a huge improvement for the neighborhood IMHO.

5 years later ...

There's been an excavator on site for the last while. They implemented the construction easements last week so it is safe to say work is beginning at this site. Camille Residences across the street still has its easements in place and The Bloom is finishing up a block away.

Crane base has been installed. I'll grab a photo the next time I see sunlight.
