    In person, the hotel looks alot taller & robust than I thought it would be. It should be topped out & fully glassed just in time for the new NBA season. Will be nice to have the LED's going for those night games they show on TV!

    The schedule could be wrong (or might change, I guess), but we’re only slated to appear on national TV a handful of times. And most are away games, I believe.

    You're not wrong.

    The structure is now almost topped out.

    There will be one more level on the western end that will contain mechanical, but I suspect that won't take shape for a while as they have to hoist up all types of a/c equipment and the like before they screen it in.

    There's also a crown that I think is the equivalent of 2 stories, so still a bit of height to come.

    The crown is just to cover the mechanical equipment and only on the western half of the building.

    Took this today:

    Came into Downtown from I-40 via Shields...the impact of the convention center + OMNI and even little ole Fairfield Inn is tremendous. If we get 15+ story buildings lining the park on the west site, downtown is going to feel pretty big coming in from that angle.

    The crown will add what appears to be an addition floor in height. As Pete mentioned:
    cover the mechanical equipment and only on the western half of the building.
    Equivalent to a cherry on top of an ice cream sundae.

    Probably a bunch of 4 story, middle of the road apartment complexes like the Edge or Metropolitan.

    The lit up west end of the Omni is going to be nice and very visible from the park during the evening. I wonder if that might ever be a problem for performances since the great lawn is basically pointed at the Omni in terms of how the audience looks at the stage.

    I love the black brick on the west end. It looks so good in person!

    It's starting to look like that blue color on the west and northern elevations is going to be permanent. Its different than what was shown in all the renderings.

    Are they going to paint the concrete surrounding the windows of the rooms?

    I think its pretty ugly as is.

    I like it as it is. Painting would make it look cheap.
