There is a panel on front of Viewpoint which says retail will be available Summer '08. Also I walked by the back of Viewpoint yesterday - most of the floors (up to 21 or 22) are numbered. Based on that numbering it looks like they are on floor 24 or 25 currently.

Actually, if it's going to be exactly like the model, there's 10 floors left plus the two-story top.

I heard recently that McCray's and Loca Luna are slated to close their doors in August of 2007 in preparation for Phase II. I may have to move now that McCray's will be gone.

Actually its not in preparation for phase II but for the buildout of the retail portion along 6th street.

Nice updates. As this building gets taller, I'm beginning to see that I really don't like it. The glass on the tower portion is great, but instead of using the same glass on the parking podium, they put some other color, and then accented it with nasty green panels. It looks like the podium and tower are two different buildings, which I think is just ugly.

They had a great thing going with the smokey gray glass and the wavy top, but why they had to destroy it with a horrendous base is beyond me.

Luckily, the base isn't finished yet...as it looks right now, yes, it's hideous. But there's still a ways to go. I'll reserve my judgment for now.

Regarding some of the proposed retail, I heard mention of Urban Outfitters and Sur La Table as being 2 potential tenants. Obviously, Urban Outfitters makes a lot of sense...I think a Crate & Barrel would be nice!

The parking podium is horrendous in scale alone; the best thing they could do is bury that monstrosity but it's way too late for that. We'll see if they can work some magic and at least integrate it, but I for one am not holding my breath. Another Novare gem!:

Acording to the web-cam there is still about 9 floors to go before we hit 37. When do you suppose they are going to relocate the camera to another building or skooch the angle up some?

At $25-30k per space for underground versus $15k per space for deck, underground parking is not feasible. They should just build less deck spaces. Instead of 1 per bedroom, why not 1 per unit? Or better yet, sell the units and the parking separately (unbundled) so that people actually think about how much it costs to own a car. Unbundled parking typically reduces supply by 25% - even in areas without transit.

I know the last units to sell at Plaza Midtown were the two-bedroom units with one parking spot...I guess developers are staying away from this because they aren't selling.
