    200 Federal Street | Residential Tower | Portland

    Hopefully the rooftop will become a financial bonus for you. The height should open up possibilities for telecommunication equipment, local news cameras, beacon lighting and other associated lease opportunities.

    Jonathan, you have to give the people what they want and rooftop lighting is a winner! :)

    200 Federal Street | Residential Tower | Portland

    ^ review the photo in post #83 and visually slice the width of 2 Monument Square in half and add around 70' in height and you'll get a better perspective. The bottom three floors of 200 Federal Street will also jut out similar to 2MS, and you are correct that the pocket park will be on the...

    200 Federal Street | Residential Tower | Portland

    Just a thought. If your design team raised (extended) the brick facade another 10 feet above the roofline you would naturally hide a majority of the mechanical equipment. This would eliminate the need and expense of constructing a metal mechanical wall on the roof, concerns on what color and...

    200 Federal Street | Residential Tower | Portland

    Agree, lighter color paneling would be perfect for the mechanical wall, a dark color would not pop visually. I also like how the brick facade extends about 4 feet above the cornice and adds a nice variation to the roofline. As myself and others have mentioned, please consider adorning the top...

    Love the revised design and it looks like the mechanical portion has been decreased and now covers only the eastern portion of the structure. Should still reach 204' at the very top. Thanks for keeping us updated!

    200 Federal Street | Residential Tower | Portland

    I'm happy that there hasn't been any negative articles from the local press or complaints from the same contingent that opposed the Midtown project. Wonder if it's because the tower is planned for the center of downtown, not a cluster of high rise structures and no city tax breaks or grants...

    You held out on us but I knew you'd come through eventually! Looks pretty accurate in relation to One City Center, good job.

    Good point regarding the interstate. I can always make out the mechanical top of Canal Plaza and the upper floors of One City Center when heading south. With 200 Federal Street being around 40 feet taller than OCC and it's footprint having little more elevation, I think it will stand out...

    Thanks for the update Max and I've also heard that the new referendum will not effect this project but there's been nothing official mentioned. Were there any renderings at the workshop showing how the building will fit into the skyline from 295 and the waterfront? A small grocery store...

    200 Federal Street | Residential Tower | Portland

    Anyone know if the new referendum that passed in Portland concerning an increase in affordable units will impact 200 Federal Street? Would the proposed project be exempt because it's already in the pipeline and/or because the developer is not requesting any tax breaks or grant money? Would...

    Rock Row (née The Ridge, née Dirigo Plaza) | Westbrook, ME

    A Chase Bank branch is currently under construction at 480 Congress Street (@ Center) and should open prior to the new year.

    Much better. No longer looks like a textile complex and every new building in Portland does not need to have a red brick facade. Just read in the PPH that the student center and dormitory has received Planning Board approval with a 7-0 vote.

    Not bad for a moving windshield shot.

    Another "before" shot just in case.
