I don't like the 'L' shaped mass on the corner...That needs to be much slimmer and taller imo. (meaning as tall as the FAA goons will endorse)

Yeah, I see what your saying, Maxim, about the Place II not seeming tall enough. I agree. Also, I'm not sure what that tall building is behind Grand Central East. I don't think that's supposed to be the Martin. Whatever it is -- it seems to be the tallest building in the sketch.

I don't really like the garage in the back. It kills it somewhat. But the rest looks amazing.


PS:bueller come and talk to us. You only come and post renderings that I have no idea where you get.

I don't mind the garage if there is some sort of retail space on the bottom floor, which there looks to be. If this is where I think it is (Towers at Channelside and Seaboard Square will be to the East side, Channelside to the SE, Forum to the SW) then there def. needs to be some sort of consideration taken to the street interaction. Very prime lot. I like the use of the land, though. Thumbs up.

So, if I counted that right, they're 17 and 21 stories...

And I wonder what big box retailers they are courting?

I hope their final plan has a better looking garage area. Maybe a better color scheme or something...

I actually like this building. Do they have a timeline for the building?

Now that I think about it, I do not like the parking garage on it. I say put the parking garage in the building and then increase the height.

That building looks awesome. I'm guessing it would be 1 block West of the [email protected] If the buildings get built, I don't mind the crappy garage one bit. The key to this project are the apartments and office space which gives it a huge edge over other projects of being built.

However, bueller, there is a no rumor policy on these boards so I'm sure everyone here would appreciate you telling us maybe where you got the renderings or the status of the project or something. You gotta talk to us.

Here's some rough crappy renderings of seaboard square from VillageRealEstate.com....





I hope it looks better if/when its built then here. The base is cool though.

That is a rendering of a possible replacement for part of the dead Pinnacle Place project...The next block west is where the O2 condos were.

In regard to the renderings for the northwest corner of Meridian and Channelside, if my map is right that puts these 17 and 21 story buildings on the west side of the twin 30 story Towers at Channelside; on the east side of the Blu (formerly O2) twin 40 story condos; north of the twin 30 story Downtown Channelside towers; and southwest of the 29, 25, 25, 26 and 10 story towers in Seaboard Square. Add the 30 story Plaza at Channelside further west and that'll be quite an impressive downtown neighborhood in the south end of Channelside. I know some of them are still very much proposed, but at least someone besides hard core tower fans like us have a dream - they are actually doing something about it!

Nothing is planned for the O2 site, that we know of. Blu and Downtown Channelside are the same project.

All of this updating for the master list. Will it ever get done? :-P

I'll go edit these projects in. All we need is to take the initiative to upload the renderings.
