  1. I think that it might simply be that, at certain points going east, living in the area is deleterious to the health. Having said that, as someone from Pasadena, the city (or other cities, populations) have sprung up near the water.
  2. There's a scene in an early Frasier when one of Daphne's exes comes to Seattle and is invited to the apartment and he looks out at the Space Needle and he thinks for a second and then says "Big", which is how I feel about this.
  3. Feel like BEES?! is on point. What was a weird choice in the smaller building, with the larger will transcend taste and create its own center of aesthetic gravity. I suppose that's a traditional definition of kitsch, but, I dare everyone involved to do it.
  4. OK, I'll come in here with the medium view. I don't entirely dislike the floor. The statuary is...a bit...well this isn't gonna be the Trevi Fountain. The mix up of curtain glass colors was...odd. But I think the proportions of the building aren't terrible, and I'm really excited to see what such a tall tower looks like here. Really excited.
  5. I feel that. All these Austin-y towers popping up thereabouts makes 8 stories steel framed seem like a townhouse crop
  6. The design (while clearly preliminary) is.... ... ... ...good? Like you want to look like those other cities you'll have to have some people build around them. As for Kyoto, I mean, I guess it's nice that we're comparing ourselves to Kyoto, real arriviste hours here!
  7. I was in Houston over Christmas and was surprised by its proximity to downtown
  8. Really goes to show you how easily the human mind is bamboozled...when I see comments on here that latch onto American car hegemony and say "Well I CERTAINLY wouldn't want to live at a place without a place to park" and I nod sagely, when IN FACT, the project is still surrounded by seas of surface parking and I have PERSONALLY rented a parking spot in a garage within two blocks of this project.
  9. I lived very near this development, nearer to the 610. It always seemed to me that this corridor, that is the narrow band of streets running from the future train station to the already developing center of the heights, would and should densify rapidly.
  10. I'm going to pretend you mean getting New York numbers of people in the street.
  11. Would do! I'm thinking of quitting my job adjuncting. Then I get up there and have a panic attack.
  12. I'm here to say Pasadena does it's best to knock down mid-century stuff too and certainly not for such density as this.
  13. I've heard some bougie things on here too, I'll tell y'all. That "building blocking my view of other building" is the season 2 episode 8 of Fraiser-est thing I've heard.
