But more importantly, this was not a design competition, this was about making money for Amtrak. Clearly for one reason or another Riverside had the better proposal.

Also, even if Sterling Bay had been chosen, I doubt this concept would have made it fully to fruition. The footprint of this building would have been way bigger than what ended up being feasible. It was originally assumed that the bus station could be rearranged or that the air rights could be developed. Neither of these proved possible or acceptable for CDOT. And the park that fills over 50% of the rest of the site was Alderman required.
Thanks for the clarification.

As Mr. D speculated awhile back, the bus terminal site is plenty of space for a second tower that could include an enclosed bus terminal in its base. Maybe in the next development cycle, or the one after that, once the terminal has passed the 12 or 15 year mark. It's probably good to let this area grow over time, instead of putting up as many blue-glass towers as possible, all at once...
You are exactly right on why the bus station could not be modified so soon after construction. The current PD only leaves less than 500,000 sf allotted for the bus station sub area, which if the bus station ever does get redeveloped in the future, that would result in only a modest tower, or there would need to be a new or modified PD.

At this rate, the tower will finish first.

Spyguy always comes through for an early Christmas present. I think it looks sharp, figuratively and literally.

If Goettsch is involved, we don't need to worry about the glass.

Side note: I cannot get over how gorgeous that white terracotta building is just west of this site.

You're probably aware that some forum members dislike the recent string of blue glass towers all looking similar?

Can you imagine architecture enthusiasts 100 years ago complaining about every midrise/skyscraper built with either limestone and terracotta?
