Progress is being made except in those lots.

Hopefully between SHW and a new JUSTICE CENTER and other projects those WAREHOUSE parking lots will be history in a decade!

Pretty soon we won't even have to build skyscrapers anymore. The CG has gotten so good, we'll all just be satisfied with the renderings. Right? Right.... 😛

Ah yes, I long for the day we’ll be able to live, work, and play inside renderings!

Beacon peeping out and looking mighty fine in the skyline (rhyme not intended) today at the Cleveland National Air Show

Speaking of rhymes, the sloped roof of the Hilton creates a visual rhyme with the sloped portion of the Mall.

Wonder if they still plan to put the sign up on the roof? I like the simple old school look of it, but it probably won't look great for those who are dining at the top  so I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't include it.

I believe that was the rationale for the slopped roof.

^ Wait, am I missing something?  I thought the rooftop was a dog park and a "sky lounge" aka sun deck?  "Dining at the top"?

It's just an area for residents. No dining outside of taking your own food up there and eating it.

This is a great highrise infill building and the reality looks a bit leaner and dare I say a bit more of an even better fit than the rendering.

I just love the light ring around this. Adds a touch of class to the night skyline.

I couldn't figure out if you had attached a photo or not because I'm not seeing it. But anyways here it is...

Love this view.  Great photo.   I usually sit right below

I really hope they plan on finishing the design like they depict in the renderings. The Beacon signage at the top and re-doing the entrance would be great.

Hopefully they just put up a huge billboard on top, a la you-know-where

Missing side panels finally being installed ... from today at lunchtime.

Thanks for update. I asked about the side-panels about a month ago but nobody responded. 

I do not work downtown. Also, I thought Stark was to be complete with Everything ( Interior & Exterior ) by Sept 30.

Only going to be a slight delay on that at least compared to his Nucleus delay.

...and the transitional interface between the garage and the building.

I really like the parking garage and I really like the apartment tower, but I'm having a tough time finding any real design/aesthetic connection. Does anyone else feel that way?  What was the argument that made it get approved by the design review committee?

I've been asking this same question for several weeks now.

There appears to be no desire, nor intention to integrate the building facade with that of the garage. It looks like a building built on top of an unrelated garage and it really detracts from the building's aesthetics.

Nope.  It's in the middle of downtown.  Its located in the Public Square area, among buildings with very different architectural styles.  It feels organic and not like a suburban planned development.

I really like the lighting around the "mid-section" or balcony level of the Beacon.  I would love to see another parking pedestal like this built elsewhere downtown.  Were the original plans to build a tower immediately on top or did the project change due to economic factors at the time?
