    Just like I stated back in June, blah...

    Also, I called him several times and he never returned my calls. Now all the sudden he's splashing out renderings when we still haven't seen anything on the Canopy Hotel that was announced months ago.

    If the City does try to buy his land, he can now claim lost revenue in addition to the value of the land.


    I agree, this timing is actually comical. I guess you could say he is smart, though.

    I actually like the design. I know there are concerns as to how feasible that design on that site may be, but I like the picture.

    "Welcome to Fairfield Inn!"

    "Thanks. Uh, where should I park my car?"

    "Oh, just drop your bags and then find a spot on the street -- there's plenty!"

    At what point do we get enough hotels--or maybe too many?

    By the park and by the new CC. This will be a huge success.

    A parking garage will probably get built sometime in the future in that area. But clearly it is not there now.

    Bingo. The plans also look like the Staybridge. This was obviously just slapped together for some negotiating leverage and never intended to actually get built. His underwriters would want to see parking. Our design review also would supposedly not approve this jumbled mess...but who knows on that front.

    Oh, was the site decision announced and I just missed it?

    From what I have seen so far I like the proposed hotel. Some things could be better, and I am sure they will be in the final product. As for parking. I would have zero concern parking there. Downtown Memphis is orders of magnitude scarrier to park a car in than along streets with a clear view from almost everywhere.

    Of course not. But it is the odds on favorite.

    Just my opinion. I don't have a vote on it or a seat on the committee.

    OKCTalk - First hotel in Core to Shore area reveals design plans

    The design calls for 42 on-site spaces, plus they plan valet parking as well.

    Demolition of the building at this corner began early this morning.

    Design is so generic... I was hoping everything that got built in the C2S area would have a more modern feel.
    The truth is never embarrassed by honest inquiry.

    All these 5-story 100-120 room hotels in the downtown area... And they all look so similar.

    No plans for floors 2-4? I realize they are likely just cookie cutter of each other, but would still be nice to see one of the cookies. If the cookies are going to be baked that is.

    The design is unimpressive and a waste for what Core to Shore could represent. Get ready for the design standards of Lower Bricktown to extend to Core to Shore.

    I'm not sure how fully brick and cast stone is mimicking LB. Sure it's a little generic, but it will still be a nice looking hotel that will not be an embarrassment.

    I like it. It gets a JTF rating of 5 out of 5 on what I can see so far. I do wonder why in a state with 3 or 4 months of swiming weather why outdoor pools are built though. With that kind of investment I would enclose it and get year-round use out of it.

    Appreciate that Pete. Was curious to how the rooms were allotted.

    It's got more brick than several of the UPPER Bricktown hotels…

    I agree that I would like to see modern architecture in the area…but that doesn't mean every building needs to be as such. Also consider that this will be next door to a large Brick building that, unless the CC ends up on this site, will likely be renovated at some point in the future.

    I like it too. It is brick and cast stone, no EIFS. It fits in well with the International Harvester building next door. This is good infill - it isn't going to be the center of attention or be a district defining building, but it is quality development and looks very nice. If most of Core 2 Shore looks like this I'll be very happy.
