But it blocks the view of the BP Building from CSU’s campus!

I'm teasing. And I agree that it is one of the best looking buildings in town.  

My favorite building in town is without a doubt the Walker@Weeks Federal Reserve Building. That 's blocked too!

Of course The Lumen is the main attraction - but, it has also brought renewed appreciation to its neighbors, particularly the stately Keith Building, as noted by several others above. The Lumen seems to be already changing the feel of the eastern side of downtown  - at still only about half of its planned  height. Gonna be fun to see its eventual presence in the skyline from various perspectives.

Drove from UC into downtown tonight down Euclid. This is really starting to have a great impact as you approach from the east!

The Lumen finally starting to peek out in view from my apartment at the Chesterfield Building. Crazy to think this will more than be double the height of the Hanna Building. I'm ready for this crane to jump Thursday!

Is that a tennis court? Where is this at?

It appears to be a part of The Sphere's building, and the Union Club website says nothing of tennis courts.

This is correct.

 

Hint/Tip:  Some time a 3d view on google maps will confirm a location.

I realize CSU is on summer break, but damn that looks desolate.

I'm struck how little traffic Euclid has thanks to the healthline. It's actually a very quite street compared to the double lanes of Chester. Much more pedestrian friendly. And yes I see the Lumen leaking thru.

It's a very pedestrian-friendly street. All we need now are some pedestrians! 🙂

 

OK...OK... I'll get back to the Lumen.

I think that between shows at playhouse, summer events such as Jazz Fest, etc the area is fine. Not really much in the photographed immediate area that caters to a non student population.

at least there are no empty parking lots with overgrown grass anywhere to be seen

plenty of pedestrians between between Playhouse Square and Public Square that will soon be increasing significantly. The narrow sidewalks (after CSU) will make it look like there are even more.

When I was coming down Euclid (and meant to mention in my original comment), is that hopefully the Lumen continues the growth of population down Euclid past CSU. To think of apartments/housing sprawling down that corridor would be awesome and would provide the bike/ped/bus traffic that would make the area pop, it seems like Midtown is helping with that effort with the buzz going on down that way...

 

PS- Didn't mean to derail the discussion off the Lumen!!

We have some new crane sections showing up this morning.

I'm a little confused with this picture. It looks as if the Euclid side of the parking structure (foreground) is sloped as if it will be a ramp but shouldn't that be the ceiling of the first floor retail space?
