When I zoomed in on the massing page the numbers became blurry, but I think roof height it 338' with 29 floors. Second opinion anyone?

Yes, 338'4" tall with 29 floors plus a mechanical penthouse. Looks promising.

Really? I like the Lego brick design.



This is really promising. The fact that that block is going to have a sidewalk in the near future makes me happy. If it ends up being a 29 floor skyscraper I'll be even more happy.

Not just a sidewalk, a boardwalk. It's a continuation of the 10th Ave boardwalk that will go from Jamison Park to the Fields.

Good news! Just heard that Hoyt has hired Boora Architects for the job and so this is the current design direction.

Hope to have more info soon...

Why did they change? This is great because Boora's design i thought was great. I am really looking forward to this because even though we didn't see LRS design I doubt it was going to be better than this one.

I really have enjoyed Boora's work especially the Janey which came out great so I feel like this is in good hands.

I'm also happy to see this change. I wish we could have seen the LRS renderings though.

I also like the Janey although that isn't a BOORA project.

Yes, The Janey was designed by GBD Architects.

Sounds like there are several other towers in the works nearby, although this one is likely to be the tallest. The North Pearl could end up being a new cluster bookending the skyline like South Waterfront.

That's what I'm waiting for. It seems like every project lately has been chopped down. Even the ARThouse was reduced a floor. It's the city M.O. apparently.

Btw Baumberger, great renderings. I really enjoy your work.

Oops my bad I saw the studio drawings and some reason assumed it was a BOORA project. Well the studio did a very good job with the illustrations with both the Janey and this project so I third that.

Block 15 was presented to PDNA this week to a large crowd and was well received.

The project has a DAR April 4.

I heard the height was around 350 ft with a very small floor plate. This will be one of the tallest thinnest towers when it gets built.
