Long way off, but these 3 acres (FWBP article by A. Lee Graham below) will be the site for either multifamily residences or a hotel, not an office building.  So what kind of housing or hotel is compatible with the Pier 1 building?

This article has some drawings of the proposed Pier One apartment complex. http://www.star-tele...le37251282.html

I first had doubts about another low-rise apartment complex utilizing scarce land downtown.  But, having seen the design of this project and its location adjacent to the high-rise tower, it now strikes me as being good land usage.

they have "broken ground" on this, at least in the way of moving in heavy equipment & putting up fences - starting to tear up the existing visitor parking (where the new building should go) and building new visitor parking on the downtown-facing side of the building

So according to the renderings, the building is on the opposite side of the Pier 1 building in relation to the area they are digging up. Am I just looking at the rendering wrong?

The digging is for for a new parking lot, since the existing parking lot is where the apartments will be. You are looking at the renderings right.

The new visitors lot is complete. It's a nice little thing for a parking lot, well landscaped and a nice walkway lined up with the center of the building. The fences and construction equipment have now moved to the apartment site, so I'd say it's under constructoin.

There's a tower crane up on the site.

They had dug a deep hole into the hillside for the garage. It's beggining to come out of the hole now.
