It seems half the suites on the upper floors will have a nice view of downtown. The floor to ceiling windows are nice. I like the Spartan feel of it.

Nothing (wolf or otherwise) is going to come along and huff, puff and blow this building down.

She's sturdy.

On the basic level, what is the cost comparison of this masonry building vs. the stick framed crap shacks in the burbs? It's more expensive for sure, so rents/costs would be proportionally more expensive?

We were talking earlier in another thread about affordability and that's why we get the crap shacks. So placing a more expensive building in an area that may have difficulty handling rents seems to defy that logic. Or is this area gentrifying such that it can afford higher rents?

^^^ well in this particular case, the owner can use "own forces" for the masonry construction, so that probably helped to make it more cost effective.

It is also tall enough that wood construction (as of right now) isn't possible - so it would have been non-combustible whether where it was built, or out in the 'burbs.

This one has to be the most unintentionally hilarious interior shot:



For those long days at work where you want to go home, relax, and sit down in front of the tiny window

You could always turn the chair around and enjoy the great view of the stove. And turn on the oven light and pretend it's a TV.

It’s that “parent’s basement” chic.

The tyndall actually looks quite fantastic when driving by.

^ The tyndall gives the building an institutional look... it's easy to imagine this building as a 1960s office that was repurposed to residential along the way. It certainly looks the part.

It's a very nice looking building... for sure a cut above the typical lowrise residential developments we usually see around here.

My mind will be in peace if living here as the design elements are so simplistic to the extreme.

Nice take.

It's funny that the render that was probably most widely questioned and prodded on here has turned out to be one of the nicer projects in a while. Looks great.
