    I’m not understanding why they would want windows that small. And, I really hope the final product does not look like The Dakota, which is a feable attempt at mirroring historic architectural styles. That building is just plain and fugly.

    More red brick, uninspiring architecture.

    I quite like the Dakota and don’t see anything feeble about it.

    I think most of the complaints for the Dakota and the new Columbus Commons Apartments is that they seem a little strange….proportions are a little off, materials are a little weird, and appropriate details are lacking. It’s a result of architects/developers knowing very little about old architectural methodology and patterns in today’s ultra modern, starchitecture, design on a blank canvas architecture schools. It’s really unfortunate.

    It has to do with money and the bottom line.

    Very exciting!!! Carter’s website says the opening is just over a year and 3 months away so I could see this moving quickly.

    Excited the pieces are being developed so quickly, but really hoping it turns out better looking than the drawings have shown so far. With Moody Nolan on board though, I’m not entirely optimistic.

    The last thing we need is half-assed crap on some of the most important land in the whole city.

    Not that I’ve heard. But between you and me, we can probably get new photos every other day. ;)

    They’ve got a big hole in the ground now!
