A few other things to note from the Zoning Commission meeting:
- The proposal was approved including all waivers (two: one for height, and one for setback from Pershing Street)
- A small attached building is planned at the corner of Pershing & Guildford that is planned as an "upscale restaurant" with daytime and evening service
- We were shown a conceptual rendering that the architect stressed is not the final design (a rep from BOKA Powell was the representative for the project), but if the final design is similar, I'd describe the appearance as "like the original towers if they were primarily glass instead of concrete facades." It's not entirely glass - there's still concrete - but the ratio is higher toward glass than concrete, if that makes sense. While of course the final design could change, the concept design looked obviously newer and different but still had a "family resemblance," if you will, with very similar proportions to the originals.
