Re: Beer and Loathing in Dundee

i understand how some see this becoming a business office as a disappointment. Dundee is a sort of gathering/dining destination. A restaurant may have been preferred. But as there is such a demand for housing in the Dundee/memorial park/aksarben and the rest of the midtown area, this is a good locat...

Re: New Kiewit HQ

Excellent development and fit of the area. I would be surprised to see any retail space tied to this. In regards to their current two properties, I'm wondering why some people want to see hotels become of these vs apartments or condos or continued as office space. Also, the years I've heard plenty o...

Re: HDR Aksarben Office

I certainly don't know as much about rendering programs as you do, and certainly agree that there are some that do picture like quality. Being able to have seen some of the recent UNMC buildings renderings early in the design process and then seeing the final product, they are very accurate. My poin...

Re: HDR Aksarben Office

Rendering drawings rarely give an accurate depiction of what the final product will present like. Sunlight, shadowing, variations of surface texture (gloss, matte, smooth, rough) surrounding buildings, internal/external lighting, etc. all play a role that no drawings can reflect. I think this buildi...

Re: Nebraska Medicine

Highly doubt it would be that tall. The hospital side is 8 stories with the new helipads on top of that. Don't think it would be any higher as it would interfere with the helicopter traffic.

Re: New HDR building

If this is the lot they will build on, I would certainly expect them to build their own parking structure. Also, if they hold to 300k, that would be a quarter less than BCBS at AV. I could see this building being at least 8 floors.
