The photos below contain updates on the following development (click the links for more information and ongoing discussion):

    I’m loving the new layout of the Construction Roundup with all the pictures right in the post without having to click on the thumbnails!

      Agreed it’s much nicer

      Well, as soon as its working, these articles (and other image-heavy ones) will feature a rotating slideshow function. It’ just disabled at the moment for being a bit glitchy and non-responsive in layout. Stay tuned for something even better. ;)

    Was by the Heights at Worthington Place yesterday, one building it topped out with new windows installed and the second building closer to Wilson Bridge road is still in a semi foundation stage with elevator shaft going up over it.

    Positioning those photos so that you can see the last Highpoint photo and first Neighborhood Launch photo is a good way to see just how cheesy the Hightpoint is (if you didn’t already know by looking in person).

    I’ll give them credit for not spelling Highpoint with a ending “e” but I believe there is a special circle of hell for developers who use those snap-in plastic muntin grilles. Did I mention the poorly proportioned bay windows?

      Or the cornice detail, or the very ill-conceived Juliet balconies, or the storefonts
