That view looking down Woodward - holy SHIT. Basically a mirrored version of Woolworth looking down Broadway.

And I can’t get over how good the overall massing of this tower is now. It looks amazing and iconic from every angle and pays heavy homage to nearby pre-war landmarks. Can’t WAIT to see the cladding, which will surely be of the highest quality.

If I’m not mistaken, the massing represents what the shape of the building is going to be, correct? The only thing that is missing is the exterior finish?

hmmmm. Maybe I'm reading too much into it, but that's a very interesting coloration used for the site plan proposal and in this massing. SHoP has proposed to use green terracotta before. In NYC and in Boston.

When I get the chance to make it downtown now and then I'll try to update the site with progress shots.

Pretty sure that’s the taller tower in the Monroe block project.

This tower was moved to U/C over on SSP. Can we do the same here?

It looks like a single foundation piling might have been driven. I'm wondering if it was something ceremonial considering the date. We can wait for more photos to confirm active foundation construction.

officially released renderings of the new design.

Hudson's tower design evolves again as it gets taller

Quote:
"Stepping allows for terraces for amenities and possible hospitality spaces," Sharples said.

[...]

Plus, the tower's setbacks are a practical feature, preventing the need for more expensive features that limit the swaying that wind can cause with buildings that height, he said.

[...]

In addition to the Hudson's tower, another building, slated to be 14 stories and 232 feet tall, is planned immediately to the north on the same Woodward Avenue site, where an underground parking garage has been demolished.

The total project, to be built by Southfield-based Barton Malow Co., is anticipated to be about 1.424 million square feet spread across the two buildings, a more than 40 percent increase from the previous total of about 1 million square feet, according to a copy of a site plan dated Sept. 10.

Office space in the 14-story building has increased to about 363,000 square feet across the top six floors, up from 263,000 square feet. It also includes a skylight.

Hotel space is penciled in at about 500,000 square feet, while residential space is expected to be about 251,000 square feet across approximately 250 units and 22 floors. Retail space has been scaled back from 103,000 square feet in a previous plan to about 73,000 square feet, and exhibit space has decreased from 93,000 square feet to 77,000 across floors two through five of the tower.

Event space has grown to 185,000 square feet from 168,000 square feet and includes a 1,250-seat event hall, a 445-person capacity ballroom and various meeting rooms. That would be across most of the third, fourth and fifth floors of the podium.

A 700-space underground parking deck and a public observation deck atop the tower are also planned.

as I figured, not much going on with the foundation (yet!) Maybe a single pile casing.

Hey Hudson. I'll be downtown this upcoming weekend for a major convention. Would you want me to see if I could get any updates for the forum? I don't know if for example, Bedrock has any scale models in their office / sales area, but it seems their headquarters is in Detroit anyway.

Since you just posted a site photo I doubt too much could change within a week if they're just doing ground work and prep still.

anything can change from day to day. All updates are greatly appreciated! It's up to you, of course.
