Re: Red helicopter

I always had thought that these were the St. Luke's helicopters because if I remembered right I think I'd seen them land there.

Re: New Convention Hotel

Had a chance to speak with a member of the architect team for this project last night... He said that these renderings, while still current and quite accurate to the final project, are actually kind of old (some as old as two or three years).

is it just me or does the model show that the convention center would have a small expansion to the west of the building?

Re: New Convention Hotel

As for me, I was at a meeting with a developer and an architect(back in early January). They were talking about partnering with each other for the project but were very hush-hush about it and wouldn't give me many details.
