Gallery on Fulton

I'm no big fan of modern architecture, but I sorta like it. I'm a bit disappointed by the lack of balconies though. Oh, and is that a pill box/gun turret window I see in the dark grey area in the center? I don't get why they design those windows like that.

I think it's because those floors are the theater floors of UICA, so they probably want minimal windows.

Not a fan at all of it from an architectural standpoint.

I totally beg to differ. It's about freakin time that GR is finally getting some modern architecture into the scene. As nice as all the buildings are - about what 90 percent of them are brick?

We need more funky architecture like this into future projects. Now if that mystery building renderings that were found for market/fulton would come to life...

I didn't mind the architecture for those mystery buildings. I think what bugs me the most about this is it looks like made it out of legos and had a bunch of lego pieces that were too big, but used them anyways. There's no cohesion between the tower and the bottom at all, it looks dropped onto the top as an afterthought by another architect who had not seen the plans for the rest of the building.

GRAM = Good modernism.

Gallery = What are they thinking?

But, I still want to see it built. It does have what matters most: the street-level transparency, and what it will provide to the area and community.

Maybe they are looking for Jimmy Hoffa. :shades:

Oh, it must be that new parking lot the city has been asking for. :silly:

Oh, none of the above. Nice to see this project appear to be starting construction. Has there been an official ground breaking yet? You know guys in suits with shovels.

Maybe someone (eridony?) can get some better shots tomorrow. I was on my way somewhere else and had to stop.

I'll try to get some shots after work if no one has beat me to it by then.

This is a surprise, I didn't expect to see any work for months still.

Well not much to see on the site. Judging by GRDad's picture it looks like nothing happened today.

entire site (notice the construction fence doesn't cover the whole site):

I wonder what they are doing, it doesn't look like the actual start of construction. Besides, I don't think they've even had their groundbreaking yet and you know how much developers like those PR events.
