I think that was an earlier rendering and what is there now is the finished product.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Sort of a light and airy Dulles in the main part of the terminal. Who doesn't love fountains indoors and out. The high open ceilings will be much better than the current concrete honeycombs. We need to see what they layout is.

Re: The Gallerie - 27th & Gillham Apartments and Condos

Tremendous amount of construction has happened, but it is all but invisible from Gillham above. Mountains of rock excavated with huge retaining walls. Columns poured for the retail levels facing McGee.

Re: Martini Corner near 31st/Gilham

If the parking ratio is the problem, just do a renovation similar to the Battery Lofts just to the north. Put on a penthouse level and gated surface parking behind the building where the new building was going to be. Not as good as the original plan, but much better than now.

Re: Amazon searching for second HQ

Playing up the caves as a secure location for a data center would be smart. The caves are the one place that would offer protection from electromagnetic storms whether from a hydrogen bomb burst in the atmosphere or a solar storm. The 1859 Carrington event bought down the early telegraph, the only t...

Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

I think if the facades of this building were reversed, with the current north side moved to the south, there would be less complaint about the appearance.

Re: OFFICIAL: Penn Valley Park (Ideas+redeveloment)

The only thing Union Cemetery needs to be a functioning park is gates on all sides open during daylight hours. People in the neighborhoods around it(me) could use it as a pleasant shortcut to Crown Center or Main St or PV Park.

Re: P&L District: 14th & Baltimore site proposal

I was walking down the east side of Main and noticed for the first time how very narrow the lot is on the south side of the Mainstreet theatre. I looked east over to Two Light and can tell that it is much wider than would fit on this lot. A conventional apartment unit/hallway/apartment unit would no...

The drugstore is still there, the retail spaces being finished out are to the north. The Congress apartments are quite nice and much less $$$ than anything DT or Union Hill.

Still have the 1977 paperback. Biggest difference is the original was all b&w photos. New edition is color, still not that much info on each building.

Re: OFFICIAL: Penn Valley Park (Ideas+redeveloment)

Originally one side of the current Broadway was the through street, the other was a slower traffic carriageway. There are some absurd measurement of the indirect paths neighbors of the park have to walk to get to the park: http://urbanangle.net/reconnecting-penn-valley-park/ http://pennvalleypark.org/

This may be one of the most important rehab and restoration projects ever DT. We just do not have many large buildings from the 19th century that were not demolished.

Only two more floors to go. Will this be topped out by the end of July? Like the stone element on northeast corner, wish they would have wrapped it around southeast corner as well.

Having floor to ceiling wall to wall windows, the views were actually better from indoors due to the pi...
