oy....these people make me almost as sick as bad architects.....DPD made them go that tall. there's no way they'll chop them down.

they'll get them entitled at that height, but there's probably no way Enterprise will build them that high unless they wait about 5 years for the demand to come back around.

right now they are their own worst enemy, STILL trying to sell out some of their own buildings that are STILL under construction and word on the street is that they may have overextended themselves.

Any updates on this? I understand their concerns, and I too would not like to see a part of our city park covered in shadows, but I am a huge fan of this development, and I like the idea of a Southern wall to the park to go along with the Northern and Western walls

OMP on far right. It's easy in this pic to see how high the glass progresses as indicated by the golden reflection of the sunlight.

That shimmer is not from the core cladding, it definately does not go that high.
