Downtown real estate development stays hot. Following up on the Hampton Inn™ now being proposed at the northeast corner of Main Street and 16th Street, the last real vacant piece of River Market real estate might be finally becoming taxable property.
It will have a surface parking lot with parking under the building. Site plan is below. 4th Street is at the top and 5th Street is at the bottom in the drawing.
I think the architect needs a color wheel. This is what the building will look like from 5th Street. I guess the light blue stucco will stick out and the former Populous building at 3rd and Wyandotte won't be the only building looking out of place. The former Populous building being this one that Populous occupied for 10 or so tax abated years before moving to another tax abated property. I really hate the design of that building.......
Proposed view from 4th Street. The entrance to the parking will be on the right of the rendering where the shaded part and wording is.
Lastly view from the west.
