I just hope that they are going to build all of their projects. I would love to find out if the rendering villagerealestate had of Novare 3 is what the 47 story building will really look like.

I doubt it that rendering looked like Element in height in design we know this one will be a good bit taller and now that its a TWELVE it should look different.

^and most importantly, the architect for the Twelve project is different than the one who did Skypoint and Element.

BY the way they are clearing the site and have a contractor banner up on the fence which - unlike most proposals - is in the middle of the street

actually, Rule Joy Trammell + Rubio of Atlanta are the architects of record for Element and the newly proposed Twelve hotels projects.

(see article dated 10/26/2005 at their website link below)

Odds are it will be a beautiful project.

Someone post a picture and I'll be more than happy to explain what they are doing and why.

Caission work seems to be exactly what is going on. Just surprised they haven't had an official groundbreaking ceremony.

....or Sales Office opening :p

Jasons right they're taking soil samples. The auger is too short for piles and not wide enough for caisons. I wouldn't get too excited about it yet.
