i heard they did a special version:

 

Mr. Beaconside

The Killers

 

Coming out of the ground
And it's been doing just fine
Gotta gotta be up
Because we want it all
It started out with a foundation pour
How did it end up like this?
It was only a financial, it was only a shovel
Now I'm falling over wiring
And she's calling a realtor
While he's lifting the glass
And she's taking a look
Now they're going to buy
And the apartment is ready
And it's all in my browser
But she's touching its glazing now
He takes off the protective glass wrapping
Letting me see
And I just can't not look, it's pleasing me
And taking control

Renter and buyer jealousy, turning people into the tower
Swimming through sick view lullabies
Choking on your alibis
But it's just the price we pay
This tower is calling errbody's destiny
Open up my eager eyes
'Cause I'm Mr. Beaconside

I hear they did a special version of Everything Will Be Alright for nuCLEus.😉

Maybe we could get Billy Joel to redo "We Didn't Start the Fire" with but with different Cleveland development projects.

Cover his alimony payments for a year or two and he might just do that for us!

Looks to me like they have. The panels are slightly reflective, so the light colored panels pick up a lot of blue from the sky.

I quite like how this turned out. I still think it would have been great to have had a color we don't have much in the skyline like a blue or green or yellow. Basically anything other than shades found in common stones or bricks, but I still like the shades of brown.

 

It adds a pop of modernity to Euclid Ave. In 10 years when we have a few more modern towers we're going to have a nice mix of old and new along this corridor. It'll be really nice.

I agree with jmicha, although I'm not at all disappointed by the color. I really love the "pop of modernity" as he observed. It has such a unique presence on the skyline that, despite its modest height it adds a lot of interest and an uplifting  spirit.

 

The view heading east on the inter belt bridge is really impressive.

It's fine.  But they need to do something about those yellow columns in the middle of the tower.  Paint them black?

 

I think that's still in-progress. Looks like insulation/protective sheathing/etc.

 

The only rendition of Paint It Black that's necessary....

Taken from Twitter - its great to see the Beacon balance out the left portion of the skyline as seen from the lake.

 

Cleveland's marketing photos have no doubt improved!

I figured something was up....they were really working on finishing the lobby last week

I hate to ask a stupid question but   -  Is the lobby on the ground floor of the parking garage

or is it the 1st floor ( 8th or 9th ) floor of the apartment complex?

The Beacon’s account says the first tenant moved in today. Wow.

I can only imagine that the noise level and commotion will be unbearable for the tenant until after the building  is complete.

The design of the website makes me cringe and the photos look like they were done on an iPhone by someone who didn't know what the hell they were doing....but there are interior photos up on the site. 

 

Lobby looks as bad as the website.

Lol. I love the photo of the tissue box.

 

The lighting beneath the Beacon sign also looks odd to me because it’s not spaced evenly. I assume they did it purposely, but it’s just even enough that the uneven spacing looks accidental.

Agree on the tissue box photo. 

 

It it looks like the lighting is aligned with the letters. It’s a bit odd that it comes off the corner of some letters and the center of others, but the latter do have curved bottoms.
