Looks like the deck will be stuck at floor six for a while. The Westin will be built on top of the deck after the entire parking deck is complete which will be in the spring of 2023. Not sure why construction is dragging so much. Once construction starts on the Westin on top, add another 8 or 9 months or so which would put the construction time around two years starting with the rise of the crane back in January to completion. That crane is going to be up there for a while. This has got to be the slowest downtown project in Greensboro's history. It was first proposed a decade ago.

The new Moses Cone Day Hospital near Battleground Ave. and the N.C.A.T. Building on E. Market St & Dudley went up quick, what is it about Downtown GBO that is different? This city with downtown is special in a sad way when it comes to pace on projects. Slow, Slow, Slow!!! While other peer cities march right ahead.

The Hampton Inn took 2 to 3 years to build and its only 6 stories. You are right, everywhere else in the city construction goes up fast, even during the so called worker shortage era. I don't know why downtown projects are so slow.

It's like, they understand the importance of properly utilizing space downtown... which is good.... but then they engage in complete paralysis by analysis.

I just wish the Greensboro Westin could be as creative like this one in Cleveland, at least make the parking deck not be so boring and bland.

My guess is that there were cost overruns due to a number of issues including lawsuits, unforeseen property issues that led to the uninspiring design. That explains why the design went from pretty good to plain.
