Thiels plan development for downtown block

What do you think of these architectural drawings?

Posted on Fri, Sep 27, 2013 at 9:23 AM

The Thiel family has proposed a massive new development on one of the blocks they own downtown, currently occupied by the RBC building. The proposal calls for 500,000 square feet of new construction, consisting of two towers, one a hotel, the other condos, and restoration of the heritage Merrill Lynch Building. The architectural renderings show an according-shaped pedestal that allows one of the buildings to reach over the old bank building.

The city has not yet received a development application for the property.
