Hope this isn't a gigantic hex on the project...but 40 stories / 625 feet deserves its own thread....a few new pictures from Picard Chilton website:




Thoughts on this side of the parking podium?...



that is some serious uplighting!

This is the building that's similar to the Hines-developed tower in Calgary, correct? I was in Calgary last week and saw that building up close and in the flesh, and it is shaaaaarp! Can't wait until this one starts rising.

No, it's perfectly fine for a major project. It's a beautifully phallic building, too. Quite thick. please forgive me

I don't think the parking podium will stick out nearly as much as this rendering shows...it almost looks like the rendering has the building sited on the old Great Gulf site (or even closer) when it should be back directly adjacent and to the left of the Four Seasons. I think it will be fine.

EDIT: This is the actual view when taken from Google...you can see that the building will actually be quite a bit further back than shown in the rendering. It actually almost looks like the rendering shows the building on the corner of Speer and Market!

From that angle you won't even be able to see the podium. It will be covered by the 22 story 1401 Lawrence.

Driving down Lawrence it will be a little jarring but I've heard it will at least be precast concrete. There is a proposal (rendering has been posted before) for a 30 story apartment tower on the lot next to Four Seasons so that would effectively cover it up.
