So when did this become "THE ASHTON"?

Personally, I actually like that name better. A little more class to it.

Ahston

I'm very curious about this nighttime light as well. Can anyone divulge any information?

The only one image that we've seen that even hints at the lighting design is this one of The Austonian. They included The Ashton to the left. I would imagine it might look like this. Who knows.

Thanks for that Kevin. I'm sure they'll add some minor lighting to compliment the skyline

Update from 8/21. Views from Joe's Crab Shack on Riverside.

The Ashton (right).








The Ashton (center). The crane is at least the 3rd, maybe even the 2nd highest point on the skyline.

This is a very nice building and I love how dense that part of downtown is getting.

Nice shots. You hit a lot of the prime vantage points.

Here's two more from the Congress Avenue Bridge February 6.

Ashton buzz

I posted this last week, but you guys might still be interested.

"I spoke with a contact at Hanover this morning and was able to dig up a few juicy facts.

1) There will be five penthouse units ranging from 2,527/ft - 3,218/ft
2) No three bedroom units (except for two of the five penthouses)
3) The largest suite is a 2/2.5 + study at 2,200/ft
4) At 880/ft, not including a balcony, the smallest one-bedroom is relatively large
5) Pricing has not been finalized but is expected to be at par with AMLI on 2nd
6) Level seven will feature an amenity deck (pool, fitness, lounge, etc)
7) There are three 1,550/ft live/work units (2bds/1.5ba) on the first floor featuring a garage and access from the ground level"

I wish they'd have an open house of some sort. I wish every new residential building would.

By the way, I noticed they've put in the window(s) at the very top of the building on the west side. And they've started doing the coating on the concrete on that crescent/arch on the roof.

When is this going to be all the way complete. It seems as if this would have been done already.
