Northbound lane of N. Spring St., from E. Coffee to E. North Streets

Wednesday, September 19, 2018

Lane closure to allow for relocation of a water main for the new federal courthouse. If the work is completed sooner than anticipated, the road will reopen early.

I'm guessing since we never not a new rendering they are going with the brick box from before? :sick:

I think it's still being developed.

:lol:

Seriously though, I would think as years have gone by, and construction costs have soared, the money secured years ago would no longer be adequate. Also, the studies done 20 years ago for space needs would be terribly outdated by now; wouldn't there need to be more recent studies? If it had been completed 15 years ago as originally planned we would be looking at a 15 year old building, probably needing additional space, no?

If they're going to go through with building the giant windowless cardboard box in the latest drawing, then they can start in 3019

In other words, business as usual for the Federal govt.

The building design is currently being studied by the Architect/Engineer and will be revised to align with the construction budget. Completing and issuing early construction packages in December 2018.

so it's somehow getting worse, great. Maybe if it had no windows - perfect!

A complete failure of South Carolina's legislative delegation.

The new design is being studied not the old one. This is being funded by the federal government. Has nothing to do with the state of South Carolina.

I was referring to the state's delegation to the United States Congress. 

And since seeing the old design I will be skeptical about the new one until I see it.

If only the federal govt would just stick with the federal style, their buildings would be worthy additions, no matter how tall or squat they might be. I'm not looking forward to an 8-story brick with a tiny cupola on it.

But judging from the size of the parcel, it can only be so squat. There will have to be some height, one would think. At least taller than most of the stuff going up right now.

Well at least it can't get any worse than the previous rendering. I know you're never supposed to say that but I think we hit the basement with that one!:P

Looks like the Nashville building cost 194.5 MM. What do we have, 110MM? Don't expect ours to be that nice looking.

Ewwww, San Antonio's is worse than ours!:shok:

Toledo's

Savannah's,

Can't find a pic for Des Moines. The Savannah style is nice but it's very horizontal. Man that San Antonio building; ok, maybe ours wasn't so bad after all!
