Duany-BwayBridge.jpg

This is the Broadway Bridge dressed up to become a gateway for the city and more friendly to pedestrians. The building at the right is a random rendering Duany's people did for what could be at the circular gas station site. Since then Proc. Group has released their plans.

Someone asked for something like this in one of the other forums so I thought Id put it here.  I did this in Photoshop using some photos posted on this site - so I can't take much credit other than compiling them all together.

This includes the proposed Westin Addition, the Gtech Headquarters, and the proposed Parcel 2 buildings at Waterplace park.

Later I might fire up 3ds and Autocad and polish this up a bit with buildings that fit the perspective... for now Im at the mercy of the photos available.  I also want to put some row houses or something along the river near the Amtrak line.  Anyone know whats going up there?  And anyone know about that parking lot downtown across from the Eastside?  Id love to plug that up.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Great job!

You are right, once put to scale the GTech building will get smaller, the Waterplace Condos larger, and the One Ten will get taller if they do what they told me (add 3 floors and a lighted tower for "well over 400'). Actually, the Westin is slated to go from 356' to 380' now.

The Parcel along the river is set for 5-7 floor condo/apt type low rises.

Those lots (on Memorial) and those damn Citizens Plaza lots need to be the next things developed. I hate how such a nice building (Citizens Plaza) has a huge parking lot as its background. And something needs to un-isolate Avalon-I don't mind the building itself but it just seems like a huge apartment island in the middle of nowhere from the south side.

I have this whole tutorial typed up in another thread, and I was trying to find that tutorial while I was watching you blunder through trying to post last night, but I couldn't find it, so I just left you to suffer. :lol:

You can see what were typing when were posting???????

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Of course I can. :whistling:

Ok, no, I can't actually see what you are typing, but I can see what threads people are in and if they are in the process of posting or not (I'm not sure if regular members can see that or not).

I've done some updates to the first page of this thread. There's still more additions to make, but it's a bit more put together than it was.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Great job! After some thinking, additions of projects (that I don't think are dead) would include Greene St condos and the Intercontinental hotel.
