I think the offset window craze is ending. It is just when you see it here, it represents something that was designed several years ago, when that was more in vogue.

The white is cool, but can architects stop with the offset windows?

Gonna be interesting how they keep the white clean (cynical me: they wont).

@DZH22 What brought you to Harrisburg? I saw the pictures on your flickr page.

I drove through it once but didn't really have time to stop, as it was on the way from Pittsburgh to Philadelphia and back to Boston all in one day. It looked like a nice little city (and it was!) and I was interested in checking out the State Capital building. I also went through Albany, Binghamton, 1st overnight in Scranton, Wilkes Barre, Allentown, 2nd overnight in Harrisburg, Baltimore, 3rd overnight in Philadelphia, and checked out a sick view of NYC on the way home. Fun road trip!

Here is a new promo video for Lightview.
It has some aerial shots of the completed building. Not sure if the interior shots are Lightview or stock footage.
Great video! Although I haven't been in the building yet, the interior shots are consistent with design specs I've reviewed for the building. And the views out the windows from inside are consistent as well.

Barring a UMASS Boston-like residence hall maintenance/elevator fiasco within the next year, I think this was a tremendous partnership between a private residence hall operator and the university to fulfill the school's, neighborhoods', and city's goals of housing more college students on campus. Hopefully American Campus Communities, Scape, and similar developers will continue to execute similar developments throughout the city--especially for much-needed graduate student housing!

Stolen from the internet but Marty Walsh was out for an official grand opening today, although worth noting the ground floor retail still isn't open (or even announced what it is afaik)

I think this came out great.(y)
Yeah: but why did you keep us in suspense so long.... :)

The most insane view of NYC nobody has ever heard about is right here on High Mountain Rd.
