9/23

 

Are people really getting excited because about a half-inch of a crane is visible on the tv?  I know it's great to have a new building going up in downtown, but that might be taking it too far, lol.

I had to copy Firenze98[/member]'s nighttime shot with a daytime shot, plus a couple of others all set against a deep-blue late-September sky....

I don't remember seeing this posted yet. And opening in November? Which ground-floor space are they taking?

I was going to say "they hear us" but this site was down so maybe not.

Nice full frontal looking up (first pick). Was wondering if anyone would do that when topped off with this building. :)

Was joking but the height and presence with the skyline surpassed my expectations for this project. Pleasantly surprise a little. Someone posted wondering why this project is getting so much attention in here. For one we waited over a decade to get this completed and feel people like how it makes more of a presence than they expected.

Edit It adds to the Skyline. It will become an addition.

I like the density of buildings in the second picture.

Driving home on the 490 bridge today I realized what an impact this made on the volume of the skyline. Absolutely unreal the amount of gaps this building fills in from about 4-5 different perspectives

Yes. That's the crime of Judge Alvin Krenzler.

I really like the building being yellow; it both stands out and blends in. Maybe the planned colors, which seem a little trendy, will work as well; but I doubt it.


There's nothing wrong with optimism, as long as you don't get your hopes up.

@Dougal I hear ya, but I don't think yellow ages well. Just think of what we would say to the architects of the Justice Center, the 9, and the Celebreeze Federal Building if we could transport ourselves back.

 

They Keith Building, the Key Tower, Terminal Tower, 200 Public Square, One Cleveland... While each building may not be a personal favorite, there is a reason they are still aesthetically pleasing 20, 30, 40, 50+ years after construction.

Nice shot! Looks like it took a bit of a beating from that nasty windstorm on Saturday night.

quoting from wikipedia which is the most 'reliable' source material.

 

"The Beacon will feature a facade interlocked with colored interchanging metal panels that will reflect the sun and be brightly illuminated with exterior lighting at night.[5] The pinnacle will feature a multistory Beacon masthead that can be seen for miles in either direction."

The photographer managed to get the Lumen crane in the shot, too.
