    201 Federal Street | Residential Tower | Portland

    The building on the lower left appears to need a little work and what's the contraption on top of the building on the right? The new tower looks impressive on the skyline and thanks for the photos Conrad. (y)

    Potential Soccer Stadium | Portland peninsula

    Most recent rendering of a renovated Fitzpatrick Stadium which looks great and appears to have a seating capacity similar to Rhode Island's venue. As TC always mentions, its about food, drink and entertainment options that helps sell tickets! :)

    Potential Soccer Stadium | Portland peninsula

    Some renderings of Rhode Island FC's proposed 10,000 seat soccer stadium in Pawtucket which is expected to be ready for the 2024 season. The team broke a USL record for 2500 season tickets sold in the first week. I'm guessing this is the same level of competition and expected capacity for an...

    201 Federal Street | Residential Tower | Portland

    Only because Redfern is all about providing "affordable" market rate units, I'm guessing the upper floor 2 bedroom units will be in the $2800-3200 a month range? The only apartment available in their Hiawatha building currently is a 4th floor studio for $1360 a month.

    The Mori vision is just so daring and outside the box for northern New England which is maybe why I'm drawn to it. We tend to criticize the basic run of the mill architecture we've gotten accustomed to over the past 50 years and now the opportunity may arise to have visitors from "away" talking...

    Historically relevant building especially knowing that John Calvin Stevens was involved in the restoration in 1926. Very clever of Toshiko Mori to implement the facade into the entrance design.

    After watching the videos again I've come up with my final ranking with an understanding that I would be extremely proud to have any of my top 3 come to fruition: 1) Toshiko Mori 2) Adjaye Associates 3) Lever Architecture 4) MVRDV

    WOW! They are all amazing but I'll take the Toshiko Mori design please. Talk about a signature building on the skyline and I love how they integrated the Children's Museum/Chamber of Commerce facade into the entrance and the interior is stunning. The Adjaye Associates design would be my...
