not a fan of no retail and all that garaged parking at the bottom, but the infill is nice i guess. I hope they extend the riverwalk all the way to Chinatown

^ I believe that the city's long term plan is to extend the Riverwalk to Ping Tom Park, which would be crazy impressive if and when it comes to completion. The developments at River Line and The 78 will get the lion's share of the work done to complete that vision, although the city has a big hill to climb with connecting River Line to the current terminus of the Riverwalk at the confluence.

Have some conviction. Infill fades into it's surroundings, but this dumpster fire will be looming over the river forever.

Taken 5/20 in the afternoon. Had a chance to take a stroll down Wells St. and I have to admit, I do like the black façade on the building.

Don't really like that black there riverboat tours get to see terminating blob of black, grey maybe would have been better. Hope it turns out better than it looks now.

With the bridge covering the parking podium, it almost looks bearable. It certainly has some nice height to it.

Eh, it's okay

Will anything in this complex actually reach 5/600 feet? If so when is the whole thing supposed to be completed?

I'll judge then but at least it's expanding the skyline

I assumed they'd be coming later but in that case the title should be updated.

That's pretty disappointing, hopefully there will still be several high-rises overall.

Who cares? Death to all brownfields and parking lots!
