Also the windows on the top floor have been removed.

While we can't compete with the booming skylines all over the world anymore, maybe we could go for the record rumber of 39-story buildings!

At least it's better than vancouvers record number of 32 story buildings.

Uggh!

Nothing spectacular here, but here's the hotel project for Boren and Stewart:

Odd location for a hotel - at this time.

This project is almost going into the "I'll believe it when I see dirt move" file.

From August 2011

Is that not just Boren One, a project we've been talking about for a long time? It's discussed on the first page of this thread and in others before that...

Looks like a nice project and a very central location for a slightly budget brand. This looks like a nice box with good street level uses/set backs. If it's detailed well and built well I'd like it more than a design that's more blatantly interesting.

This building always reminds me of walking down Howell Street at night to the Dina Martina Christmas Show at Rebar when it's pissing rain out. And that is the only good thing about this shitty building.

THAT side of the block should have had a high-rise. Isn't there one planned for the two-story Yamasaki building site? That would put it right next to the Aspira.

I'm wondering if a lot of the interest in hotels in this neighborhood is the tacit admission that Convention Place station will eventually be utilized by WSTC?

Not the worst thing in the world, but nothing special either. My main problem is that it appears that the office building cafe and the hotel restaurant won't have their own entrances, and rather patrons will be funneled through the lobbies. The facade should be as permeable as possible along the sidewalk.

I think it is all right looking building but I think it will turn out better than renderings when it gets built.

That thing is reminiscent of the original building of the San Francisco Hilton. They've tried (unsuccessfully) to disguise it via a series of additions. It takes quite an architectural knack to make stacks of rooms into an attractive structure. IMO, Hilton never got it.
