Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

Looks like they are falling behind schedule. No way they can put up two floors on the parking/meeting structure in 2 weeks.

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

It is to show what the exterior finishes will look like. They have something similar at the Gallerie site and have done it for just about every building put up at Crown Center.

Too bad the Nest cam is in the wrong position to get a view of the maquettes they have put up of the exterior finishes.

Re: OFFICIAL - The Gallerie (27th & Gillham)

I like the dark cladding on the upper section facing McGee. The rowhouses have a very shallow back to front foundations. Looks like they may do some interesting terraced landscaping. Room enough on Gilham for a double row of trees.

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

That dark grey precast installed on Baltimore is somewhat foreboding. Not very pedestrian friendly, would make me want to walk on other side of street.

Re: OFFICIAL - ARTerra (21st and Wyandotte)

They certainly hit the exact mark on the Liberty Memorial-Kauffman Center view shed. From either point the other appears to sit on the roof of ARTerra.

Re: Uptown Shoppes

Keeping parking for the Uptown is vital for that venue. Some performance nights parking spills over into the neighborhood. You might think something dense built up next to Broadway was torn down for the strip mall, but it replaced something actually less dense, an old mansion. I think the stone wall...

Looks like they are encasing the exposed limestone bluff above Truman behind a giant stone wall.

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

A very good view of the construction is now visible from the Liberty Memorial deck. It is apparent that due to the tower being set back somewhat from Baltimore that only the lower western section of the P & L bldng will be obstructed from the south.

Looks like the retaining wall is almost finished. It reminds me of the faux stone at Disneyland rides such as Big Thunder Mtn RR and Star Wars.
