Not that surprised (though I know nothing about the context of H&R cutting back). I feel like a lot of the shorter (relatively speaking) buildings in this area are going to be redevelopment sites over the next couple decades or so, regardless of how new they are or not. (Not speaking about this from an ethical perspective of if they should be redeveloped or not, that's just I imagine what will happen.)
P.S. does anyone know what the situation is with the parking lot next door to the east? Tower separation distance might make development in there tricky, but it's a rare downtown parking lot, so I wonder.
Though I love skyscrapers it's sad to see this nice looking tower get torn down for another all glass skyscraper. It would be nice if they built in the middle between the three towers. Having a glass artruim as high towers and starting the condo floors on top. As seen in the photos up above if you can visualize that.
This influx of proposals feels like commercial REITs trying to simulate demand and flip their properties. Maybe I’m just skeptical of a full return to office after this stint of working from home. Something about this proposal strikes me as speculative for some reason
