IMHO. I think that our building looks quite a bit better than theirs.

Has there been any news on that ultra luxury hotel next to the Loews? Did the project end up dying? If so, I would love to see a Loews branded residences or second hotel tower there eventually.

Agreed. The base on theirs is too long. It looks like it isn't filling up its site well.

Ours just looks more balanced. Personally, I'll take better architecture over height any day.

Though these renderings presented to Council are rough sketches, Loews executive vice president Alex Tisch promised the hotel will be beautiful.
"Promised"

The meeting room wing is looking massive. Anyone know the floor heights of the ballrooms?

Elevations are on page 20

The lower ballroom is up to 30 feet
The one above 35 or so

Depends on if there’s a false ceiling or not

Enjoyed fanily time downtown today and this project is moving along great. The look of the renderings for Memphis are way more disappointing than our Loews IMO.

Curtain glass is starting to go up on the north side
