That's a great mardi gras pic, Alxx. I was standing just on the other side of that float.

Are there any renderings for the new federal courthouse and does anyone know it's location? I thought I read a while back that it would be in the DeTonti area but I'm not sure.

Hampton construction to begin in May. Great location - the last thing that needs to be there is a surface parking lot - can't wait to see a rendering. There was a rendering on a architect firm website a while back for the courthouse - a lot of glass. If you Google it might still show up...

EADS @ Brookley - Looks like the engineering area is almost done and the manufacturing facility is TBA.

FYI, those first two RSA pics were from lumis.com, not from me.

I remember seeing two renderings for the courthouse on urbanplanet.com a year ago maybe, but its no longer there anymore and I can't find it. It was kind of boring, it had a really modern, state of the art look to it, alot of glass, but looked kinda small and boring.

And I lied, there was actually one rendering for the Mardi Gras themed park at the site of the old courthouse, I can't seem to find anymore. it was small and broad, but I remember it showing a clock tower, and a few small buildings.

The Maritime museum still has a website I think, but there's really been no construction or new word on it in forever.


Water Street Landing is still the CSX building, and I'm still not sure if they're building the pedestrian bridge along with it still.

Is there still gonna be a spire for Riverview?

hey if any of y'all go to the pardes in the next couple of weeks, could you take some pictures and either post them here or start a mobile mardi gras pictures thread? i think that would be a lot of fun. you could also incorporate downtown buildings into the shots as Alxx611 has done so well. just a thought.

the Hampton inn is going to have balconies on Royal street side for viewing Mardi Gras parades. If construction is going to start in May shouldn't there be renderings.

The renderings for the federal courthouse can be found at www.msafdie.com. Go to projects, then location.

In yesterdays article it mentioned the Hampton being designed by LLW architects in Memphis TN. Could not find any renderings.

Wow, courthouse looks nice and all, but lets hope they don't use the same contractor as Govt Plaza did.

Has anyone noticed that the Courthouse will break the street grid? Any thoughts on this? I dont think anyone has mentioned in a very long time, if ever.

I wonder if the moderators could change the title to "Downtown"? Pretty please?

Sorry... OCD mode is off now.

If anybody has the whereabouts for the new Hampton Inn Downtown plans please let me know. I will be forever grateful!

I did see that. I couldn't make out the street names on the architect's site. Does anyone know where this new courthouse will be?

Courthose was supposed to be in DeTonti area, but not sure exactly where. I emailed my(my parents actually as I am in Auburn for school) councilwoman Hudson about the Maritime Museum over the summer out of curiousity. She gave me some vague broad stuff and said construction would begin soon. That was before all the stuff about adding the Hurricane center to the project came into being. I would assume it is a safe bet that is the reason no progress has been made. They have yet to decide if the center will be included and there is also the issue of being a republican pork project(alot of which are getting axed left and right at the moment). I think the museum could start immediately from what Hudson told me, but the hurricane thing has cause it to wait. Does anyone have a phot of the mattress factory conversion they could share?

Should have looked at the courthouse renderings before making that last post...Yeah it does appear to break the street grid and it will be a decent sized building to fill up two blocks, especially if it is 4-6 stories as it appears to be. I did think it looked like alot of wasted space(big glass atrias, etc). Very Goverment Plaza-esque. I would have preferred something more like Montgomery's Federal building: http://www.wausauwindow.com/images/g...Courthouse.jpg
