Buckingham is my favorite. I'd like to see those taller buildings next to the interstate.

My problem with #2 is that two of the towers you see are labeled under "future development." However, it's difficult to tell much from the others without seeing more renderings. I think the Shamrock is my favorite from what we have seen and the statistics.

I really like the Nexus development. I agree that the "future development" tag scares me a little with the Buckingham one.

Whatever gives the most retail space AND the most number of affordable apartments I'm a fan of. Downtown is in bad need of real retail and reasonable apartments. If they can provide both of those I may just move downtown.

I personaly like the Shamrock one because they are a local company. ( I guess noodle is too). But mariott has tried to build a hotel once, so dont you think they would stay with the development? It may even go by faster, at least the hotel part.

Wasn't it Fahey that killed the Marriott. It was yet another example of Fahey's undersizing a project to save a few bucks only to have the city have to go in later to right size a project at a much higher cost.
