Is that number - 195 ft tall, correct? That seems completely off for only 10 floors.

From the original article:

https://www.expressnews.com/real-est...f3aca31416e4ef

"At 10 stories, the development will tower over the midrise apartment buildings on lower Broadway. Plans submitted to the city indicate that its highest occupied floor will be 150 feet up and that its highest architectural feature will be at 195 feet."

Not complaining at all. I just have never heard of such a structure with only 10 floors and over 150 in height. Crazy. I think, comparability, this has BofA New York beat.

Office buildings have been trending toward having higher ceiling heights. Developers are taking advantage of more natural light to reduce energy costs. A 15-story office building that was completed last year in Austin ended up being 219 feet to the top of the mechanical penthouse.

FAA permit for the cranes. These first two are probably the initial height of the cranes once they put them up. The 252 and 220 foot heights are probably the height of the cranes once they reach their peak height as the building is topped out.

192 feet

160 feet
https://oeaaa.faa.gov/oeaaa/external...57807517&row=9

252 feet
https://oeaaa.faa.gov/oeaaa/external...7810189&row=13

220 feet
https://oeaaa.faa.gov/oeaaa/external...7810195&row=14

Anyone aware of a construction cam? Looks like there's major work going on at the site and they seem to be prepping for multiple cranes.

This is my second favorite SA project. It looks classic and classy, and it has retail.

Any pix? I haven't lived in SA for almost 10 years so this and other sites is my way in keeping up with all the developments in SA.
