Making your way in the world today takes everything you've got. Taking a break from all your worries sure would help a lot. Wouldn't you like to get away?

All windows removed from remaining Carmichael Towers in prep for implosion within the next 10 days. Looking SW from West End Ave., 1/2 block east of 24th Ave:

Oddly…those buildings look 100% better without the windows.   Actually looks like a brand new building. :rofl:

Sounds like a song, "I hate these windows and I want to paint them black."

And, one has to wonder if Vanderbilt can pull it off with a dorm, why can't a developer in downtown?  Just imagine the impact a similar building would have in downtown as a 30-40 story office or residential building.

It’s all about the $$$.

Tuition is essentially a guaranteed revenue stream versus the rentable square footage. Especially since schools seemingly always increase their tuition year over year. I'm all about holding developers feet to the fire for better design, but developers just don't have the level of guarantees that universities have.

Not to mention overall cost of attendance.
