  1. I'll politely disagree with Michigan not emulating Texas. Not everything of course, but Michigan can certainly benefit by incorporating things they're doing there.
  2. But why hold it so late in the season? Why not late July? Why not hold it in conjunction with Festival?
  3. I have no insider knowledge, but think this is getting way overblown with optimism. An annual, several day event does not change a community and draw people from all over the world to live and work there. Sure, it can be fun, entertaining and fill up some hotel rooms, but the hype is leading people down a disappointing path, I believe. It is great to have the family name where everything you say gets press coverage, but if he is really just trying to get free publicity by inflating the importance of this, it really is a jaded thing to do.
  4. Wow, some very interesting designs. What is the location/cross streets?
  5. That would be correct, jbr. I prefer the white metal panels to the darker brick.
  6. I prefer this one to the darker one.
  7. Is it either/or? Stadium or GWCC? Do both need to be done, or it is only a question of which first?
  8. That is so exciting. It looks fantastic. What a great turn-around. This will be used for visitors and lectures, right?
  9. Well said, m'Lady. Still stand by my previous comment. I would rather wait and have a great building than a city filled with mediocre designs. Atlanta has "settled" far too often. It is a great city and deserves better on this location that will be seen by millions of people for many decades to come...
  10. Glad the location is being developed, but I have to differ on the design. That is one ugly building.
  11. I think the fence is to stop people from being killed by falling facades. This neglect has singlehandedly killed this area for what, decades?
  12. Besides, they had some left over trusses from DeVos Place and needed to use them somewhere...
  13. The ultimate in "green" building? Re-use of materials? With the price of steel, may not be a bad idea.
  14. SO CAN ANYONE TELL ME IF THIS IS A LEED PROJECT? AND THINKING THIS MIGHT BE THE FIRST LEED HYATT PLACE. THANKS FOR ANY INFO" Yes it is Hyatt Place Hotels qualify for Silver LEED without having to change anything. The question is how important the designation is to the franchisee to go through the expensive certification process. I have heard in FL that all State employees will need to stay at LEED certified hotels when on State business. That would certainly be incentive to go through the process.
