In a boat at sea one of the men began to bore a hole in the bottom of the boat. On being remonstrating with, he answered, "I am only boring under my own seat." "Yes," said his companions, "but when the sea rushes in we shall all be drowned with you."

Absolutely excellent product. Now, if only the Northbank in the central core would get towers like this, then it'd be really good.

What a great project.  It would be awesome to wake up to a view of Downtown everyday, if only it were affordable to most of us.

Any chance that ground floor, riverwalk-facing retail actually gets filled?  Any idea what might go in there?  I guess a coffee/snack shop of some sort seems like the most logical candidate, at first blush.

Any idea of what the top floor costs to own or rent? It looks amazing from the Main St. bridge, let alone those pictures.

Looks like a pretty sweet place to live.

Fantastic building.  The one shot from the top looking down make my stomache cringe.

So, its safe to say that the Peninsula is definitely the tallest on the southbank.

Once that place strarts filling up I would imagine that skyway ridership would increase.  The San Marco station is just a block or two away...

I'm surprised they went with carpet in the units.
