A quick drive by this evening. This building looks great up close! One of the best new projects currently.

Great looking project.  Are they not going to bury those power lines ?

I walked by there last weekend and the power lines are an eyesore for sure. The need to be buried.

This is one of my favorite new projects.  It uses the right amount of brick for an 8 story building.  The base looks terrific, hope to see some good restaurants in here.

The only complaint is at street level, the power lines really distract from the building.  It it was a normal power line, it may not be as bad, but this is a bundle of lines which could power New Hampshire.  It really should have been buried.

Are power lines only buried if the developer pays for it in the vicinity of their building? Otherwise Duke just does their BAU plan of above ground everywhere?

Duke is generally the problem here

All State signage was up this morning, on the north tower wall facing uptown. WeWork signage looks good, better than their uptown sign. All States could be a lot better.

thanks and I will check it out next time down that way.

They even nailed the door and awning/canopy  choices on this project.  Great attention to detail

Off topic and a dead horse from me but the WeWork sign uptown smack dab in the middle of the most photographed — by far — angle of the skyline?  I hate it so much and I don’t blame wework but my gawd it’s a travesty for any medium to close-up view from that side of town. It’s akin to if someone drew a mustache on the Mona Lisa.

If you think that's important make sure you email city council members and let them know. It was enlarged after first proposed and had no opposition. The Panthers have a signage related rezoning coming up and it could well help to start to set a precedent with giant signage.

Micro apartments rising around the RailYard garage and your bonus shot of Flower Child and their peace bunny mural (drive by) Today.   Still love the Railyard and Dimensional Funds buildings.

I'm jealous for whoever gets to live and work in that building. That's a commute that cannot be beat!

This is basically the facade that had been originally proposed at atherton.

 

 

Atherton has actually started to look much nicer as they've started cleaning it up and finishing things.

The South Blvd. side looks decent until you hit the parking lot. The back seems to have no association to the mill whatsoever

Looks like only 2 floors left on the micro apartments:
