What happened to all of the windows that OPEN UP?

Quote

Presumably, some combination of:

They don't want to allow conditioned air to get let out and rain, bugs and noise to get in, which can affect the whole floor or building.

They don't want the added cost.

They don't want anyone using the windows for suicide.

They don't want to be liable should anyone fall out.

For offices, they don't want the people with windows to have effective control over the ventilation and temp for the whole floor.
Do you believe that when the blue jay or another bird sings and the body is trembling, that is a signal that people are coming or something important is about to happen?

Obviously piss poor arguments for owners of units.

^^ I thought these were going to be apartments, not ownership residences.

They are rentals. And not different than any of the other restored high rises downtown.

That logo is a bit much...[\Kerry]

In OKC they had a much more urban logo.

Funny...but I like it.  Nice and elegant.

^^^ they'll get a nice front row view of the landing "watch party" demolition. Since that's a thing in our city.

Jacksonville Business Journal finds new home in urban core.

The article says that the business journal will occupy the mezzanine level of the Barnett with plans to move into the space in August.

We have to be getting very close to breaking ground on the garage, right?

Looks like Atkins is getting ready to start work on the Laura St trio, great sign. I’m glad the cost overruns associated with the Barnett didn’t discourage them and it looks like DIA is willing to rework the original agreement to make the project more financially viable.

This line in the article really jumped out at me...

 "The buildings sit at the corner of Laura and Forsyth streets and each was built during a different historical period."

Anyway, hopefully southeast can make it happen.  Honestly, the city should do whatever it can to make it happen.  It sounds like Boyer knows this so that's good...
