I drove west on blanchard the other day and noticed a "proposed land action use" sign for a 24 story mixed use building at the empty lot at 6th just on the other side of the ramada from the insignia site. Does anyone have any information about this or does a thread already exist?

thanks

they are. and they'll be apartments. this one got slowed for a while with the rise in construction costs but a friend who is working closely on the project told me last weekend that they are a go, hoping to break ground this summer.

Nice. Are there any renderings floating around out there?

(Probably a stupid question seeing as how they'd be posted already otherwise--but, gotta ask just the same)

I'm staggered by the beauty and architectural detail! The setbacks! The curves! The modulated and angled roofline! The thin and elegant profile on the skyline!
It's almost as gorgeous as the rendering of 'The Martin'!

Wow the full balconies are really awesome actually, and you know the lower levels are going to interact with the streets in interesting ways

I like what's happening to 6th Street. Used to be the only thing between Denny and the shopping district was a liquor store. Looks like we'll have a lot more with this and its neighboring project.

Oh and for the record, this project looks to be called 6th and Lenora not Blanchard if someone wants to change the thread name.

Very true -- my apologies to anyone expecting a smaller download. The design review docs get huge.
I was going to say something similar to Bond. I'm glad the city is posting the DRB docs but they really should try to offer a lower resolution or executive summary version that's less than 5 mb OR split up the massive pdf into logical chunks with the first chunk being a summary.

I canceled the download as soon as I saw the filesize. Crazy size. If someone feels like posting an image in the thread that would be great.

Cancelled? It took me about 3 seconds to download it, get off the 56k man.
