I love it. Heck, I'd love it in Austin. It would look great in Austin's West End.

I think it's pretty cool. SA has a lot of old art deco-ish buildings and this fits in very nicely. So what if it's not tall or modern.

you know... they fucked up the hyatt more than anything with all their damn rules and regulations! i'm not gonna beat my meat over this building... but it beats beating it over an asphalt covered parking lot.

i don't love it, but i am happy that something new is happening1!

You spoke what all of us were thinking...lol. But I'm still glad we are getting something from the Hyatt even if it is our Wall. This can be our Deco-Box.

I believe they are beginning to assemble a crane on the southeastern end of the block. The steel base is up already.

Not from far away, but you will definately be able to see it from the 10/35 freeway.

Will this be visible from I-35 and I-37? I assumed it wouldn't be since it'll be on the other side of downtown. There sure are a lot of buildings between that view.

Great to see that the crane is up. I love this building. Can't wait to see it.

Is this going to be 17 floors and not 14? By looking at the floorplans it seems that way. The units on floor 13 are two floors and the tower unit which would be floor 15 is three floors. Anybody know for sure?
