Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

It perfectly matches the exceedingly infuriating elevator shaft-induced asymmetry of the Power and Light Building's upper floors

Re: Downtown Buildings with Activity

Hope that building ends up in better hands someday. It's a great building and makes for a wonderful companion to the Pickwick as well as the Egyptian Revival next door

Re: 1800 Walnut

Nothing new here, but I found this super high res render of the building. You can see into the rooms really well if you zoom in

Re: Hotel Bravo- 17th and Wyandotte

I’d rather have new construction like this than have the Federal Reserve converted to hotel. Not that I’m not glad it’s being redone, but it would be much better as residential and seems to just be a hotel to avoid parking requirements. I think its perfect for a hotel. There's only two other hotels...

Yep, I once explored the building and got into some of those rough areas in the video fairly easily.
Not sure they will ever be rehabilitated as they are definitely off the beaten path.
How did you get there? I would've assumed areas like that would be locked up

Re: Union Station

It's incredible that the building is so huge that there are still large portions of it that are essentially untouched

Latest TIF Packet mentions that the renovation of 1616 Broadway as a "performing arts rehearsal hall" is now part of the Hotel Bravo plan.
