Every time I look at it I like it a little more. It's not perfect, but it's a huge improvement over what it's replacing and the previous renderings.

Doesn't look like there are many changes to the hotel between renderings, but it looks so much better in the new rendering.

 

EDIT: There's more brick in the new rendering. The entire second floor is brick, and the portion that jets out is brick.

 

Also, the area between windows (vertically) is a darker brown in the new rendering.

I’m really excited to see that it is all the way to the sidewalk and will actually encourage pedestrian usage and extending the Stockyards a bit.

Quite a unique style. Weird to see bricks in adobe shapes. And lots of glass and what looks like metal. What would the style be defined as?

 

ANYONE (John T, Zetna, Renamerusk) who complained that they thought the Courtyard at N Main and Stockyards Blvd. looked out of place in the Stockyards (and several here did), better not say this is more fitting.  This is a mish-mash of I-don't-know-what.

I want to know why all of the new construction is trying to copy the Coliseum (Northside) and the Alamo?

It would honestly be improved a hundredfold if they'd just lop off the tacky fake Alamo wannabe things around the roof, because it's otherwise not bad at all and those look totally out-of-place and are just there to add some kind of "ye olde timey" thing to it that doesn't work at all.

Don't jump on me for saying this, but I can't help thinking that the building designer, in bending over backwards to appease the city's desire for modernity-to- blend-with-history, is maybe confused about which is which.  But I like the design because it's attractive, regardless of its planned location.

It's almost like the architect(s) have settled on that as some kind of signature historical element that the building needs to fit in to the area.
