Since 1999, SkyscraperPage.com's forum has been one of the most active skyscraper enthusiast communities on the web. The global membership discusses development news and construction activity on projects from around the world, alongside discussions on urban design, architecture, transportation and many other topics. SkyscraperPage.com also features unique skyscraper diagrams, a database of construction activity, and publishes popular skyscraper posters.
Sorry, there are actually a couple of threads for the project itself so I assumed most had seen it.
Here's a post I made in another thread a while back.

There are 3 more midrise (condo complex block 9, pembroke retail office park, and city center), plus another midrise apartment tower in a development called CityView right on the edge of TC. There are 3 more highrises planned as of right now, the 2nd 20 story office Tower and 2 highrise towers for the City Walk development across the street.
Great tower, but I really hope it isn't surrounded by grass like in the rendering.
No, in fact the first picture in this thread is the same angle as the night rendering of the Westin. The only different being that the photo is taken from some 300 feet up and the rendering is practically ground level. That should give you an idea of the surrounding area.
BTW, most of the trees in this area are Sweet gums, pines, and oaks.
