I don't know if they could of reduced the massing and went up higher and leave more green space. From the aerial render, it looks like they could use some green space for folks that live in that building. And the tower across Broad St. indicates it could go higher. It is a miss...

Not a fan of this one. I hope CDR tears it to shreds.

A new construction permit was issued as of 1/17:

Quote:
FOR THE DEMOLITION OF ALL STRUCTURES ON THE LOT FOR THE ERECTION OF A DETACHED STRUCTURE ( 98. 6 FEET HIGH);FOR COMMERCIAL USES AS PERMITTED IN THE NORTH BROAD ST OVERLAY ON THE FIRST FLOOR, FOR BUSINESS AND PROFESSIONAL OFFICES ON THE SECOND FLOOR, FOR MULTI-FAMILY HOUSEHOLD LIVING ( 402 DWELLING UNITS) FROM THIRD FLOOR THROUGH SEVENTH ( 7TH ) FLOORS WITH ACCESSORY PARKING BELOW GRADE WITH TWO HUNDRED EIGHTY EIGHT (288) ACCESSORY PARKING SPACES INCLUDING SEVEN((7) ACCESSIBLE SPACES INCLUDING TWO(2) VAN ACCESSIABLE SPACE INCULDING SIXTY EIGHT (68) COMPACT SPACES, INCLUDING FIFTEEN (15) ELECTRIC SPACES WITH SEVEN(7) RESERVOIR SPACES AND WITH ONE HUNDRED TWENTY FOUR (124) BICYCLE SPACES ON AN ACCESSIBLE ROUTE AT FIRST FLOOR AND TWO(2) INTERIOR LOADING SPACES.
That's a LOT of parking for a building that essentially sits atop a local/express BSL stop!

What a terrible project. All around. I might protest it even being built.

Alterra really has developed some shit projects lately. Lincoln Square is ugly too and this looks even worse. Getting this in before the thread is closed since it seems that’s what we’re doing.

Why is this thread even still in the proposed projects forum when Alterra decided a Texas donut was the way to go on such a prime lot I'll never know...

Looks like they drew their inspiration from that high school behind it. Jeezus really? That type of building belongs down the street, not on a prime corner like that. I'm getting 1919 Market street flashbacks. I hope the CDR shoots this project down with a Howitzer.

I'm sure the CDR board won't be terribly impressed, but their only power is to make the developer return for a second review.

When a rendering looks this bad, you know you're in trouble.

If there’s any project I hope falls through due to COVID, it’s this. Without a doubt.

Let it burn.

Right? Imagine if the drop off from rendering to actual building is the same as the drop off between the stadium casino renderings and the actual building. It's hard to imagine how this could sink lower. A plywood facade held together with zip ties?
