The view from my 27th floor at Avenue.   I take one image every Thursday, to follow the progression.

I have it on good authority that all three hotels that are currently stalled in construction phase will restart by fall/winter. This includes Intercontinental, Homewood Suites and a new flag at Stonew

Not sure if these have been posted (I looked through about 15 pages and never saw them). Anyway, I thought these were pretty spiffy renderings.

I hope we get about 10 more of these in his area. This tower looks great, and more part meant density in the area would be amazing

It's the perfect project for the area. Good looking and it's got a high rise and a ton of retail. Maybe Levine can use this as a model of how to develop the rest of his first ward holdings.

These pics are really terrific, but you get a better sense of how large it is as you drive by / walk by it. It has this thick, bad boy feel to it. Once the skin gets developed better and it is up and rolling and lit up you will really appreciate this addition to uptown. Not optimistic about timely and intelligent development around it though. There is so much opportunity for vibrant life in this ward.

Timely, maybe not, but I think intelligent is more assured now, because of the orientation of new developments towards the Rail Trail rather than, or in addition to, vehicular streets--which Ellis/Market 42 has introduced to the First Ward. I would be shocked if those empty blocks along the Blue Line--when they finally do get developed--don't continue the trend. College Street's potential as a vibrant city street may suffer a bit as a result, but the ward overall will be hugely improved.
