Hinman project - new 13 story hotel at 10 Ionia

I was up close to it last night and agreed it's definitely looking really cool. If people feel like it stands out now for how cool it looks vs the surrounding buildings, imagine how much it would stand out if it were 30+ stories? It'd look like those ridiculous projects where people tear down 2 or 3  tiny homes and build one massive home (or lakefront cottage). 

I think it's a good height for that area. Hopefully Orion will go taller across the street and we'll have the best of both worlds. If the Hinman project had gone tall, the Orion project might not exist.

For how long it’s taken to seal this building (which matches the bottom really nicely), I wonder what the cost difference would have been to just finish the panels like they did on the bottom two (three?) floors? And I wonder how often they’ll have to reseal it (every 10 years? Is it permanent?).

Driving by it yesterday, this building/hotel is going to look really nice.  I am impressed with it (the skybridge seemed to be nearly completed as well)

Another blase' building - just different detailing, doesn't standout IMHO.  And however deigned the signage up top, needs to go back to school or even cheaper, look around at other signage. Pretty poor design IYAM

Now that it's dark at 5 PM :tw_bawling: you can get a glimpse into  the work goin on in the hotel rooms. 

Good news. Sunset gets later after the 8th. Though you won't notice for the first week or so.

The beauty of this building strikes a marked contrast to that bunker next door known as GRPD.    Maybe they could add some lighting to it also, or is that kinda like putting lipstick on a pig?

Also,  anyone notice google satellite view is  badly in need of an update?   Curiously street view is more up to date.   Maybe their satellites caught COVID.

I don't mind the lighting on the parking deck. In fact, I think that I prefer the look of this refreshed, older garage better than the new one at Studio Park.

Went around town the other day too. Noticed that there is rust running down the building already? It looks like they are power washing and maybe still have to put on a sealer though.

Nah, my parole office wants to see me.
