To chime in, I think the location of such a building is wrong. The West End, in my opinion, shouldn’t have 400 footers but rather Downtown. It would be beautiful if towers were built specifically near The Windstream Building, Liberty Towers, Etc in order to establish a cluster in that area.

Or there could be two clusters with one in the proposed area and towards Academy.

This is downtown.

Unlike New York City, much of London consists of historic mid-rise buildings, and no one ever complains it looks like a business park.

The blandness of business parks is due to their bland architecture, and lack of walkable ground level restaurants and shops.

London? I don’t think that’s a smart comparison. There’s a ton of high rises under construction there right now. Tower cranes left and right. Lol. Check it out: https://www.standard.co.uk/news/uk/l...-a3762821.html

It is? I’ve always thought across the Reedy (starting at Riverplace is West End, Downtown is the Peace Center) is considered West End? Where is the West End then?

Switch out London for Paris and the point stands.

West End starts after you cross over the river where Falls Park and Riverplace is. It’s still considered part of the CBD and downtown though.

Still considered downtown. Just a different section of it. Everything there in real estate is considered downtown living. That Embassy right across from it is the downtown Embassy also.
