  1. actually, not necessarily mansard roofs, but gabled, gambreled, or hipped. I worked on the St. Luke University Parish building in Georgetown Township a couple years ago. Their zoning ordinance sets the height limit at 35'. For gabled roofs, that limit is the "mean height" of the roof form. The initial building design put the roof apex around 55', but because the spring point of the roof was around 18' it put the "mean height" above that 35' limit. We had to change the roof pitch to accommodate the ordinance. The funny thing is that if the spring point of the roof was at grade, we could technically have built a 70' tall building, which elsewhere in the community would have seemed quite out of scale.
  2. has the new tenant at 50 Louis not been formally announced? it's not going to be retail, but rather business use most of the time with occasional assembly use.
  3. a thread with a poll for the top ten should be started (somebody who knows how to do that) to get the UP voice, I honestly don't know who I'm going to vote for, but 5 that I absolutely won't give my vote
  4. my thoughts exactly, I hate how words like "sustainable" get tossed around like that. I chastised my co-workers the other day for putting "sustainable" in a marketing piece. if he would have stuck it in the river and geared right, the slower flow could have gotten the wheel spinning at the right speed for the frames/second that it needed. that would have been something and you might be able to call it "sustainable"
  5. thanks for reminding me... soon I hope... its been an incredibly hectic summer, getting married and all... I still have a backlog of photos from the summer that I need to process and upload to flickr I do appreciate the interest in my work though
  6. "excuse me, coming through..." John, I must say, that's a really great photo, it says a lot very simply. Excellent capture.
  7. already open for business... http://andrewsoncherry.com/home.php
  8. Just saw a new one on Grandville, north of Hall, and there is another next to the Jimmy John's in Eastown.
  9. in the video, at 2:30 he says that the passerby just looked at him like he was a mugger, my first thought was 'he probably looked at you're walking around all crazy like and carrying a camera' then at 3:20 you see his reflection in the City Market window and dude is dressed like a bum with a couple filled trash bags strapped over his shoulder ooooh, undercover reporting!
  10. heard disappointing news today that Urban Mill will be closing on May 1
  11. does this have anything to do with it? http://www.artdowntowngr.com/
  12. It looks like they've tried to be contextual to the neighborhood with the treatment of that west facing portion of the apartments with those vertical gestures of lighter color. They look out of place to me because the don't introduce a second material onto any of the other massing elements. Balconies aren't part of the neighborhood context either.
