The two office components will be "3 to 4" floors I'd say why bother but I guess they want that retail.

300+ hotel rooms, 200 apartment units(with potentially 75+ more), 90K in retail, 500 parking stalls and potentially the first ground up office build in DTO since Gavilon with over $200 million in total investment?

I'll take that bait and switch every year.

It was a joke people…

I'm not complaining. I was simply pointing out how it was scaled back quite a bit from what was originally presented. I'm happy enough with what we got.

One thing I am learning. Things rarely get scaled up.

I could be mistaken but I thought I heard Moylan state that the retail would be strictly restaurant and bars; hence the name, entertainment district.

I don't know. I'm trying to see the bright side of things here but the apartment building kind of bums me out. As presented in the original design, I'm sure it was more of a conceptual placeholder until some key decisions with financing and stuff were hammered out, but I wish they were able to keep more elements of the original design. Bleh.

Any idea how big the Plaza "Entertainment District" portion of this will be? It seems like it will be small if they do retail on 3 sides and taller buildings blocking the sun. I guess I originally envisioned this similar to the Railyard in Lincoln.

Just thought I'd post some shots from a stroll to show another view of how the infill will look.

I think it is going to help the density feels around there.

Kinda wonder if the remaining buildings of the Capitol Development will need a tower crane, and if that one is simply being repositoned.

They took off the counterweights, but then put them back on. Were they just making some adjustments, or did their plans to take the crane down somehow get cancelled/delayed?

Is it too late for surprise bonus height like the Chrysler Building?

That would sure be exciting (but I know it's not going to happen)! I was initially a bit disappointed that the final product didn't quite match the original vision, but in the end, I really like the way this has turned out. I only wish it were in the cards for me to move down there!

Once the other buildings are complete, it's going to be completely unrecognizable (the view from 480 and from Capitol) from 3 years ago. Plus, other perspective views from/into DT, it will look more "full"

Good to see, maybe it will be used for the office buildings, meaning they are going to start construction on those soon too. I was worried that we might have to wait a few years for more demand to be there.
