I'm all for any development DT but height impresis people and attracts them to the core. People feel comfortable if they can relate a building to where they are at instead of midrises which will just blend in...again and again and again. So does anyone know of even the slightest proposal for future buildings that will stick out of the skyline...but hopefully not they way the Grand Hyatt jolts out. (though I must say that there are certain times during the day and evening that the Grand Hyatt doesnt look too bad). I guess I just want to know if SA is ready to move forward with the present and not play catch-up over and over.
beggars can't be choosers...

there is the potential hotel tower at rivercenter (phase 3) which has no rendering, no flag, and no actual prospect of being a reality.

other than that, i only know of a few mid-rises speckled throughout DT that may or may not happen.
