  1. Somebody over at SSP is claiming that he has a credible source telling him this building is confirmed and going up. Rendering looks to be 40-50 stories and says Q1 2013 completion....so I would expect a 2009 groundbreaking.

  4. I think of it as office-park brutalism. Most of the "classic" modernism was years before these. The plain concrete-facade office building seemed to have its heyday from around the mid 1960s to late 1970s, when architects got sick of it and moved into post-modernism. My guess is that a large part of the rationale for these designs wasn't as much the theoretical tenets of minimalism as much as economics. It must have been relatively cheap to stamp out hundreds of standardized concrete facade units that could be plugged into place. Re: One and Two Allen Center, the exteriors are rather banal but I think the interiors are rather nice, considering.
  5. Three Allen Center: Office Tower At 333 Clay St.
