^ Finished Libeskind residential towers? I don't think so... If there has been, not that many. So this is a new chapter for Studio Libeskind

I believe the towers for Sacramento and Saint Louis will be among his first, though he stated he wasn't out of the WTC game yet.

There's also that one in Covington, KY across the river from Cincy.

But the one in Covington KY has not been built yet either. I was just curious to see if he has ever designed a project like this in the past that has actually been built. I have heard in the industry that often times designs by celebrity architects are extremely difficult to construct. The process of going from a beautiful work of art on paper to an actual structure in the air can be a real challenge and can blow a developer's budget. Since all of these residential projects (or any other private project not using public funds) have to pencil out economically I wanted to know whether he has a track record in this area or not. Apparently not.

Aura construction

I agree too, since taylor and nassi have agreements on the development of lot a, and the work already started for prepping of 621, Aura might be started and completed before the towers, and financing for Aura seems to be in place, will be interesting to see how it all pans out.

The Taylor Made Wedge

We're all expecting eminent construction site prep on the parking lot better known as lot A Right? ...But what about the latest project info handed out regarding 621..Yall know...the stuff that was handed out the night Aura was approved. Any new info on whether 621 is 29 stories now??? if so, that would not seem to bode well for a quick start. My guess is the handout was produced by the Bee... & we all know how acurate they are about project profiles. If it is inacurate, as I suspect, then I think we'll see more asphalt hauled out, & more fencing going up by next month.

Here’s another model down at the AURA office.


8th Floor
On the left, movie theater, work out gym

On the Right, separate saunas for men and women and
several guests rooms for visitors so they don't have to get a hotel room.
Beyond the bottom of the picture are condos

:hilarious So that's who "the man" is!!

Seriously though, it looks like they're getting close to staring construction. That's great news.

What a sorry excuse of architecture. This looks like something some marketing people whipped up, not an (exalted) architect. Put some curved cuts that serve no function into the facade of an otherwise-typical box and call it a day. Yes it's better than a typical box, but I wish Libeskind would've put juuuust a little more effort into integrating his swoops and angles and all that bullshit into the mass. But rather, he produces this dumb design. Sigh, I guess it's better than nothing.
