  1. The building is amazing. I wish I had more time to take everything in, but I had to run. Next time.. The guide recommended we take the elevator to the top and work our way down. With the flow around the open central atrium and stairs, I couldn’t help but think of Wrights Guggenheim. The Kusama infinity room is closed right now. I heard multiple variations for why, from not being able to manage capacity while it’s busy during this free grand opening week(?), but “should be open after that”, to the unfortunately more likely reason, covid. The skylights in the tunnel between the Kinde
  2. Surely thats not permanent/they're not tacking on a plywood shade structure on top of this development that they just spent hundreds of millions of dollars on.. Guess ill have to reserve judgement until I see for myself or we get more detailed information.
  3. Whats going on here? Kind of looks like they built a wooden shade structure below the trellis, but that cant be right.
  4. I guess no more downtown views from the lawn at WOMH.. though if this deal is the difference to keeping womh afloat then I guess no skyline view is better than no concert venue.
  5. Have they moved in the Kusama room?
  6. From what my buddies father told me about the bid, the buildings were spec’ed around the original height in the original renderings.
  7. Thanks for all the pictures! I wonder if they plan on lengthening the boardwalk or if those stubs at the X are just design?
  8. I was a little skeptical too, but someone I know was bidding on work for the project recently, though the bidding process sounded kind of weird. Apparently they have financing lined up though.
  9. Yeah there was a plan floating around probably a decade (or more?) ago for making a rooftop observation deck on Wells Fargo with glass bottom floor that extended out past the edge where the offset/set back walls in the $ are. I would love for that to get brought back, but I doubt that’s much of a priority. I didn’t realize those tour busses made the Chase tower observation deck a stop 😳. No wonder they closed it. I would occasionally take friends or family up there who’d never been/didn’t know about it, and noticed it getting busier each time. Someone high up with Hines that I spoke wi
  10. 🤦‍♂️😑 it’s a box with rounded corners now. Value engineering strikes again.
  11. I guess making i10 wider through there isn’t part of the redo plan for the highways around downtown? You’d think they’d leave space to accommodate for future expansion.
  12. I like how the 45* angles on both new towers play off each other in this angle.
  13. Ugh.. speaking of ugly. I’d take Arabella over Bowen any day.
  14. Right? Breaking ground right before the economy crashes and we tumble into a deep recession? Ballsy Great point! I wonder if they considered that option.
