I had read from multiple sources that 240" is essentially a max height financially for a lot of structures, unless the push to 480"-500". Anything in between is less feasible.

As long as Tivoli stays

Some more rendering of 7th & Island:

So Beech Street Tower was approved. Let's place bets on how long it takes Bosa or Pinnacle to buy out the project (to keep the market tight). :D

Well obviously this means we have to increase the height to 480 feet!

Much bigger fan of the 2014 rendering:

I'm pretty sure it's this:

Who knows if it's the taller one that was originally planned (and, oddly, listed on the architect page) or the shorter, 183 ft tower reported by the Reader.

I believe this rendering is the shorter version. If I recall correctly, the developer had difficulty securing financing for the larger project resulting in a modest reduction in scale.

Sounds like Lane Field phase 2 (Intercontinental Hotel) has begun construction.

To corroborate this: I saw a sign on the parking lot on that site that said it would close for good May 8 (last Sunday).

To corroborate this even further, I drove past the site today, and it's fenced off with all the asphalt chewed up. It's definitely under construction.

Finally the lot near Sprouts on Park Blvd in University Heights is fenced off and underconstruction. I think it is going to be a 7 floor structure and it's a project by Jonathan Segal.

-- Also noticed huge clearing of land and crappy structures in Little Italy Kettner and Ivy all the way up to India St. Which project is this?

If I understand it correctly after about 240 feet or 22 floor you have to build a separate internal structure to earthquake proof the building. This is why we generally see 20ish story buildings or 45 story buildings. If you are building that internal structure you might as well go up as far as you can.

I'm not a huge fan of his form but I have to give credit where credit is due. Dude's been developing in neighborhoods before, during and after the market fluctuation. I think his intentions are good(and profitable) so I'll give him a pass on wearing the "respect the architect" t-shirt 24/7/365.
