Now that is a Chicago style supertall! Love the nod to art deco/NBC tower/cleanness/simplicity. This is PoMo done right! Take notes RAMSA, o' begetter of turds and vaulted whorehouses.

Also, the description of the project now includes hotel in the plan as Sam and others have speculated. Hopefully this means the next tower will start soon! Hope it's the tallest that starts next as a hotel and condo building.

The previous look was so boring. This round is so much better. Like the height and like the setbacks on both these towers. Great additions to the river.

So is going to be a little taller than the 950' advertised?

If one of us knew that, don't you think we would have said?

^The new rendering clearly shows a taller building with more floors.

The new rendering clearly shows a spire on the south tower. As I've mentioned, the PD states that the height to the bottom of the top slab is 950' for the south tower and 750' for the east tower. This doesn't necessarily include mechanical penthouses, blade overruns, or spires.

Right that's what I'm saying... the tower is now over 1000' even if you don't count the spire.

The tower is now zero feet. If built it will top out at 983 feet.

Are there any hints that once construction is over at the apartment tower that they will begin work on the next two towers? I'm going to hate it if they begin to lay down asphalt for the parking lot and install landscaping.

There will be a community meeting prior to each new phase.

Since the West Tower sales center is now up, I imagine they're going to try to fill the building before beginning phase II.


Rendering by Crains

Also of note- "Renderings of the two future Wolf Point buildings that surfaced on the Internet over the summer depict a sleek tapering spire on the middle, tallest building, but Hines representatives say the renderings were not accurate or final. They won't comment on what Wolf Point will look like" :/ I love the south tower design.
Per Crains.

WPS? Depends on demand for office and high price condos.

Well at least the article said the vacancy rate for office space at least is at an all time low since 2008. If it's a mixed used tower which I think it is that means Wolf point South still probably has a chance at getting built I assume.

I wouldn't be surprised if the South tower is changed from office to condos and a hotel. I don't see an office tower being built there for awhile given the current market conditions. Not unless they can pull someone big from the suburbs or out of town. Condos on the other hand... that location is pretty prime.
