The Capitol Grand at 965'
These are photos of the renderings that were given to me on 11 x 17 sheets of paper. I wanted to scan them but they are just to big.
These are the NEW Capitol Grand renderings and with the EIR process nearly finished, the tower would top out ar 965' at the top of the spire. To the top of the structure is 771' and the spire on top rises up 194' to the final height of 965'. To meet parking requirements with the city, the tower has 7 above ground parking leveles and 6 below. The below grade parking would go down 75' and have slurry walls of 3 feet thick surrounding the hole.
My only real complaint at this point is the look of the base at the street level. It has a bunker quality about it... could use a little work.
The Tower would use 5 different types of stone, 2 different types of glass,2 different types of metal and 3 different types of concrete. I think thats pretty impressive for a tower of this size.
The big question... will it be built???
