^I was thinking the exact same thing.

Luma is turning out to be very nice in contrast to ugly Elleven.

I just find Elleven to be very ugly. The color, the glass, the shape, etc...

I'm not too big on Elleven either from an aesthetic perspective. I think it has more to do with the color of the panels than anything else. My guess is that the salmon color will age very poorly. But only time will tell. From an urban design perspective, the building is very well designed, however, and it's a very important project in regenerating downtown. It's just not the best looking project, IMO.

Elleven is far from being ugly but it isn't pretty either. It a nice building that does it's job as a nice residential building.

I know Grand Ave should be breaking ground in the next couple of months. Does anyone know what the final design for Gehry's signature tower would look like???

No, because you don't have to be gay to live there.

Grand Ave. will not break ground until October 2007 at the earliest. Gehry is still finalizing the design so we don't have any official renders or models, other than the versions that were released mid last year.

^ Good looking out Coleman......

Since "$cost$" is a big factor here how many floors are we looking at?
