Something is amiss.
Source on the architect?
Methinks maybe some newspaper intern took a building from Google Earth to make a diagram of what it would look like size-wise and it got published.
So I was close...
According to the article from Bizjournals, this is a state redevelopment agency project that hasn't even gone out for RFP yet. So in this case as of right now, THERE IS NO DEVELOPER, NO ARCHITECT, NO DESIGN, just an idea. There will be if the state can make a development partnership work out money-wise, but until then this is little more than pie-in-the-sky.
So change 'newspaper intern' to 'state redevelopment agency intern' who is responsible for the hack-job.
