Since we can’t get actual light rail, we could build a model light rail track and have it loop through what remains of the Commons. ;)October 16, 2012 3:42 pm at 3:42 pm #490542
Put the model train that was in the Huntington Building in the Commons.
Maybe a little ferris wheel too ;)October 16, 2012 8:02 pm at 8:02 pm #490543
how about a shout out to the light rail gods? anyone?
Thank you!October 17, 2012 5:26 pm at 5:26 pm #490544
Pic of the full site layout. I actually think the entrance from Rich is going to look great when the new apartments are done.November 19, 2012 2:06 am at 2:06 am #490545

Ugh, these rendering aren’t so good:November 21, 2012 3:22 pm at 3:22 pm #490547
Dear. God.November 21, 2012 3:24 pm at 3:24 pm #490548
YIKES, that’s awful! The architect(s) needs to go back to school, or at least the drawing board. What the hell are those windows? Who the hell designed this thing? That cornice looks like it belongs on an aircraft, not a building. They couldn’t even change up the brick color on the other building? How the hell did this thing get approved?November 21, 2012 3:24 pm at 3:24 pm #490549
Is there a zoning code that says balcony’s can’t face High Street? I could see that being a reason the balcony’s were removed and replaced with bay windows. I also believe this rendering is better than the previous one in this thread but not as good as the original.November 21, 2012 3:28 pm at 3:28 pm #490550
I really don’t understand why the windows are so small as compared to the original design. The whole point of living here would be to enjoy the views.November 21, 2012 3:33 pm at 3:33 pm #490551
Gives me a “superblock” feeling. Just a tad more detail would have been nice as well….a more decorative cornice, stone ground the roof corners, etc. The little details make the biggest difference.November 21, 2012 3:41 pm at 3:41 pm #490552
These are hideous.
This could be a gem. It’s not.
Yes, we need/want this development and these new residents downtown. But the generic design does not contribute to the other benefits this development will bring.November 21, 2012 3:41 pm at 3:41 pm #490553
@jpizzow …. I agree. I’m ok with the new design, as it is far better than the previous rendering, but a couple visual upgrades would def. help.November 21, 2012 3:46 pm at 3:46 pm #490554
Ouch. Not to be a downer, but this is not a good design for a building along a park in a downtown area. Yeah, it just looks too uniform…there just isn’t a lot of variety in the building. But, buildings usually look better once they are built and viewed in person, so hopefully it won’t look as bad as the rendering. It will likely just sit there and no one will notice it…which is fine, not every building has to make a statement I suppose.November 21, 2012 3:50 pm at 3:50 pm #490555
It looks a little like this…
