Yes, and the Trump hotel was a lot more bark and not much bite.

Went to see a movie at Alamo on Sunday and I used to live at the Sears lofts back in 2000. We were pioneers when we moved over there but I always thought the whole area had great potential. A lot has been done but it still needs to have that one big thing happen to make it all pop and come together. Not sure what that is but would love to see this area rise up and really connect with downtown. Maybe it will be the bullet train I don't know...

Yeah, the area is still lacking cohesiveness. It needs a bigger scale development (like the "SoGood") one to really bring it all together. Or, like you said, the HSR station would really kick things into overdrive there.

Wow, they really are adding that giant baby-proofing on the building. Posted to Cedars Neighborhood Facebook page.

Yikes, I was hoping that design element near the roof was going to end up on the cutting room floor hahahaha.

For being the facade of the building, these are extremely small windows. Very odd looking.

The building just reminds me of a dilapidated Disney Land hotel.

It's ugly. But At least it's original.

The part of the building underneath the bump might be a stairwell or some type of common area, according to the renderings.
