Re: Crown Center: urban disaster, shining star, or in-between

Not currently, but the Hyatt House on Broadway will have one.

There’s also John’s Big Deck, but I’m not sure if that counts

Re: What Makes a Good Rooftop Sign?

That Salesforce sign breaks all of my rules. Impressive.

In fact, it makes me want to make a new rule: Text must be large

Re: What Makes a Good Rooftop Sign?

Rooftop signs are banned in Pasadena, with the exception of those built before 1960, which have been grandfathered in.

They can’t design the thing for a Northloop removal that could or couldn’t happen in the future.

Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

Nyc-based names can be pretty cheesy, and calling something East Village is about as bad as you can get. Maybe call it something like East Park, assuming the stadium indeed goes there

Re: Mark Twain Tower going residential?

There are at least three large parking garages within a block, which I have never seen full, but I have no idea if they're planning to lease spots in one. I can't imagine that building has any parking at the moment, but I have no idea. Surely someone around here knows more than I do. It features no...

Still full of junk

Are the For Sale signs still up? There were 2 or 3 on there.

Re: Mark Twain Tower going residential?

I wish more of the historic interior had survived. I assume most of it was probably torn out when it was converted into an office building?

Re: Mark Twain Tower going residential?

Thanks for sharing these photos! Any chance we will see that signage structure reused? I've always wished something was on it! From what I understand, the signage structure will remain but there are no plans to actually add signage. Not a fan of that choice, but it probably has to do with the expen...

It's encouraging to finally see this building getting redeveloped.

I can't remember. Are the ballrooms going to be an rental event space?
Yes, at least the one I got to see will be an event space

Boy do these bring back some memories. I use to go here all the time when it had a Gold's Gym...loved playing racquetball there.
What years was the Gold's Gym there? What facilities did it have?
