Ok, I took one for the team and went to look. There’s a crane at Weston Centre for some reason. There’s some netting on the garage, so maybe doing something up there?

They're planning to two floors to the Weston garage.

This link has the building elevations and some renderings of what they're planning.

This will add 30+ feet of height to the garage with a total of 12 levels and 116 feet in height to the main roof (top level) of the garage. Plus, the elevator tower will go up another 14 feet 5 3/4 inches from what I measured. So overall, the new height of the garage will be 130 feet 9 3/4 inches tall.

They're also planning some new lighting for the top of the garage using what I'm guessing is LED lighting.

Thanks Txdev and Kevin! Now if they would just alter that sign on top the westin...:koko:

Thanks for the picture and update, guys. When I saw the crane pictured, not yet having read anything,my eyes popped. I thought the boutique hotel planned in that area was finally under construction. I'm not a fan of these tall garages, which, unfortunately, look taller (because they are) and more prominent (you see more of it than that of buildings). If we had taller buildings, fine, but these garages often dorf other nearby structures (i.e., buildings at 601 N. St. Mary's St.). On that note, has anyone heard anything regarding the building at 601 N. St. Mary's?

I didn't know they were going to change the exterior. This new exterior looks much better and more modern. I closed it before finishing to read it. Yeah, I'm lazy. Does anyone know when it is projected to finish?

It's an interesting change for sure, but I'm not the biggest fan of the perforated panels at the top.

I drove by the site recently a took a few pics... sorry for the low quality as I was in a moving vehicle. :D

Very nice. Thank you. I don't think the pics are low quality at all.

How many floors are correctly constructed, and how many are planned (without skipping numbers)?

jaga185 Aug 31, 2019 9:34 PM

I'm not sure how many are constructed. But I think they have about 4-5 more floors to go.

Not sure how many floors, but I'm pretty sure it will top out at about the pool level of the Drury.

This is the only hotel built downtown in years that I'm not mad about. So cool! Great pics as usual, Raul.

I counted 18 floors, including the 13th floor, and the levels on the river level.
Building doesn't look to tall from the highway, but from street level it is very impressive!

It will be as tall as the Holiday Inn Riverwalk, so it should make a good impression. Though, as I drive on I10 South, it is already making a good impression. If the 24 floors for this hotel is true, from a article a few years ago, then it should only be needing 5-6 floors, depending if they don't count 13th as a floor. It's interesting thing - the counting of the number of floors per building/tower is not as simple as going outside and counting the windows in parallel fashion (especially the building at 33 Thomas Street, the Long Lines Buildings, located in Manhattan, New York, New York). There are so many variables to the number of floors per space between window as one counts in parallel fashion. Most, for instance, would be surprised at how few floors exist at the Bank of America Tower in New York City due to its impressive height of 769 ft at roof and at 1,200 ft at spire, with only 55 floors.

I tried to show how far it's cantilevered over the Esquire in this one.

Are they working on the last floor? The stairwell to the backend, closest to the River isn't there. :shrug:

It’s not the top yet. Not sure what you mean about the stair?
