2016 speculation? The western views should have an awesome albeit temporary view of the Olympic Stadium. If we get it.

This proposal has been been floating around for a little while, there are actual renderings either here or on SSP in the boomtown thread.

I originally read about it here , but the rendering is gone. It looks like TUP linked to a page of the paper, not the exact image.

i've fixed the title of the thread.

and yes, this one has been on the boom rundown list for many months now, it's not a "new" proposal by any stretch.

TONS of NIMBYism on this one, guys.

Expect it to get ram-rodded by neighbors. Poor Antheus--all they want to do is build something urban and beautiful, but they have to face the brute ugliness of anti-everything self-entitlement. Sigh...

I'm loving all of this attention on how light hits the building, and the fresh and straighforward design of the balconies.

Antheus better be licking that Alderman's hiney good and clean, cuz there seems to be a lot of neighborhood sentiment against this.

Either way, I find in interesting but would love to see it from more angles

According to Hyde Park Urbanist, the Windermere West project is now called Solstice on the Park.

Good Lord.

That's one of the most heinous things I've ever seen.

Somehow they've taken the ugliest architecture of the 50's and 60's and made it even worse.

Can you show me some examples from the 50's or 60's that are similar to this, especially after reading the article in Wired?

The only the thing that I can see is the entrance/plaza/driveway, but that might be necessary considering how close it is to the school.

Excessive use of concrete. Extremely unpleasant angles.

From the side it's the worst of the flat, conformist, soul-less modernism. On the front it's just a busy mass of lines and boxes.

I weep for anyone that finds this pleasing.
