Most people would agree that a 40 story office tower would be much taller than the adjacent 30 story office towers, amiright ? 

Yes, as I showed in the more realistic rendering...

For those interested, check out the Developer Questions from the pre-bid meeting and the City's follow up Answers: https://raleighnc.gov/hotelcc#paragraph--283086

Some insight into some of the details that developer(s) are interested in.

Whatever is built at this site will likely look nothing like what's in the rendering. That's why I am surprised folks are harping on this. If the office tower is built like it's shown (unlikely) it will be significantly taller than anything else in the adjacent area, and possibly wider as well. Most people would agree that a 40 story office tower would be much taller than the adjacent 30 story office towers, amiright ? Will be interesting to see what the final products turn out to be.

It would look taller but not that tall. The scale is way off. We are talking ten stories, not 20-30 stories as depicted even from that angle in the rendering. The scaling is dramatically off.

I've already contacted the city, and relayed everyone's concerns about the rendering scale problem. They intend to form a committee to study the problem. Heads will likely roll.

Dang, they are going to form a committee to study the problem of an off-scale render of 2 hypothetical buildings...interesting. Maybe they were pretty serious about those general designs they released.

Not unexpected from the TBJ this morning.

""The city has extended the deadline for companies to respond to its request for interest in the project, which was announced in January. The original deadline was Monday, March 27, but the city decided to extend it to May 1 amid the ongoing pandemic. ""
