I am Reality Posted March 3, 2018 Report Share Posted March 3, 2018 On 3/3/2018 at 12:46 AM, prahaboheme said: This project, along with the Yard, are two of the more interesting and ambitious developments to hit downtown in many years. It'll be fun to watch them both come together over the same timeframe. Unfortunately, there is little interesting or ambitious about either building. One is a rather ordinary building that is essentislly a talk parking garage. The other is a standard apartment building. For interesting, how about the Amazon building in Seattle, the Comcast Innovation Center in Philadelphia, the Apple building in Palo Alto or the Salesforce building in San Francisco? The common theme..all are corporate headquarters and all are home to thousands of great jobs! Actual jobs! And they are architecturally superior to anything here. The Amazon building has a $4 billion indoor garden to encourage creative thought. The Salesforce building is earthquake-proof and has a freaking fountain on top. The Comcast building has 16 ft high ceilings to create a loft-like feel for NBC's creative team. Everyone kniws about the Apple Ring already. Cutting-edge stuff. Those are interesting.
