They have additional detail and a graphic up for this project on the American website.




The View will have 5 and 6 story buildings with 200 apartments, ground floor retail and a 5 story parking garage.

I think it'd be fine if they got rid of the tower....and made it slightly less identical to their development down the street.

I wanted to see more detail so I visited the site and found the original file. You can view the full size (4841x2766) here.

Overall, I like it. I appreciate the differentiation of materials along the ground floor/retail portion, and the step back along the top floor. It helps define the space well. That said, I would lop off the turret on the NW corner of the building. It's an unfortunate distraction from an otherwise nice building. I would also like to see more transparency on the ground floor. The existing windows and doors are a good start, but retail needs more transparency than what's shown. I'm glad to see a more thoughtful development than we're used to around here. With a few tweaks, it could be fantastic. Too bad it seems they're targeting the upper end of the income spectrum, though. We need affordable units downtown.

So the parking garage will be the same height as the building?  Is it "wrapped" or will there be a "backside" of the building that's just parking?

It appears the parking garage is going to be wrapped, based on the above rendering (you can see windows on a far wall in the middle break in the building. A garage with the same number of floors as a building isn't necessarily always the same height as the building.

If there is an exposed back side of this building, it would face the railroad tracks and the gravel lot behind McNellie's and Albert G's.

"The View will consist of 200 apartment homes with 130 one-bedrooms ranging from 584 to 777 square feet and 70 two-bedrooms ranging from 951 to 1196 square feet and 13,000 square feet of ground floor retail space."

584 to 777 is pretty small. An 800 something in the Metro is 1245. Hopefully that means the 584 will be somewhere around $1,000--a price point which doesn't really exist in downtown currently.

Itís hard to keep up with all the development.  Where are the Harrington Lofts?

At $500-$600 at the Coliseum, I bet that will fill up fast with aspiring urbanites.

Itís exciting to see non-stop announcements of new development in the IDL.

Very nice.  I like the attention to detail on the ground floor, especially around the windows, reminds me very much of some of the classic buildings downtown, and of course like the awnings which will help businesses if and when we get another two months plus of rain.  Though on second look, it appears the awnings are not as far out over the sidewalk / functional as one would hope.  Not really going to help pedestrians.

This is going to look very nice from the ball park.

It won't be long before every lot in the Brady is spoken for, when that happens developers are going to start looking at the southern part of downtown where there are still lots of surface lots.

Very cool...this town is going to be very different in 2018.

Well done.  The view of that from the ballpark with the skyline above it will be very nice.  Would be cool, if you lived there, to have ballgame watch parties.

They also had "Husky" cut clothes for larger boys. I will have that shame for life.
