I'm thinking we'll see a tower crane here pretty soon.:D

Yep. The hole in the middle of the site is for the tower crane base.

Blue Heede tower crane base is being installed today. Full thing should be installed within the next month.

Going off the Camperdown webcam, it looks like the tower crane is going up. 

You are correct, it's going up!

It's up. Doesn't look very high. 

Sadly, it's not supposed to be. It's a midrise hotel. Hotels have shorter floor heights than office buildings.

It's not that high, but it still adds to the cranes downtown. I think that's 3 or 4 right? I would assume that the hotel across from the ball stadium will be getting one too.

Three tower cranes and one boom crane.

Likely to see one for the AC Hotel, as well. I'm not sure the reach or overlap of work with the apartment building crane allowing for it to be shared.

There could be. That's a pretty big project.

I haven't seen these renderings before:

Nice....appears to be glamorous renditions of the one on the (site) sign.  This will be a great view on that corner if the lighting is what is represented here.

More of the same, no creativity or imagination. Every block is going to look the same. Look at those two buildings in the second pic, looks so institutional, no charm or warmth. :(

I’m kind of curious. Do you have any photos of the type of architecture that you like? It seems like this look is going up in most cities so I’m not sure what the compare or contrast could be to something else.

You're right, it's going up in every city but that doesn't make it look better. Unfortunately Greenville is building too much of it.  I just don't like this boxy institutional modern stuff.  I prefer more effort and imagination. And more classic stuff. Just a couple examples; Look at Spartanburg' s AC Hotel then look at ours. Look at Florence' s or Easley' s library, and look at ours. I don't mind some of it but there's just no variety going up right now with these hotels and appts . A couple examples of good Greenville architecture? I love the condos at the corner of Univ Ridge and Cleveland (name?),  the falls/main building that went up is nice, and the hotel at S Main and Markley is nice as well ( one of the better looking modern buildings).
