It's exciting to see JWB and Sifakis take on new types of projects, especially in the urban core. I hope they are successful in turning this property and this section of downtown around.

Wonderful surprise if it comes to fruition.  I considered this a deeply endangered building.
The tourist would realize at once that he had struck the Land of Flowers - the City Beautiful!
