So did Savannah, GA, by like 3 or so years. They also have had a Kessler Collection and a Andaz for like 5 year

That doesn't surprise too me too much, given the tourist destination that Savannah is. I knew about Andaz, but not the other two. Is Charlotte still on the map for Kessler's Grand Bohemian?

Interesting pic of the density looking south from the corner of Poplar and 4th.

The Glass Railings on Ascent look amazing. I wonder if they will keep them raw concrete like that though.

Not for a long time. That will be the last thing done to the facade

I gotcha, thanks for the update. Hopefully it will be reflective of the rendering.

I just posted something in the Ascent thread. It will be pretty darn close, especially in the world of VE vs glossy renderings

Riddle me this, what are the white orbs on the facade of the Kimpton? Decorative lighting? They only partially cover the building, on the park side it looks like they're only on half the building, split along a diagonal

It's lighting in a checked pattern.  The photo is white lighting, but curious if it's LED that changes colors.  I think there's a photo a number of pages back.  I'd repost the photo, but can't figure out how.

It would be awesome if they turned that awkward parking lot into a pocket park as depicted here in the bottom left.

Posted by RDF a page back.

I'd love to see a reclad for 400 South Tryon.

Its appearance is completely bewildering to me. Two Wells Fargo is even worse. Did people think these things looked good in the 1970s?? Someone was asleep at the wheel.

There has been quite a bit of renovation work on the interior of 400 S Tryon recently, but I'm not sure if that will bleed out to the exterior.  At the very least, they could do something cool with the lighting and make it a pretty interesting building at night.  Those awful gold windows need to be replaced too!

As for 300 S Tryon, I really wish this building was about 100 feet taller.  I dig the design and would love for it to have a larger presence.  The Kimpton looks great!
