Is that where this tower is due to go? But I don't think the Western Southern building is that far east, is it?
Pretty building; thanks for the tidbits on its design, Doog.
On a side note, hey Doog, current expert, can you tell me what was originally housed in the building on Fourth Street west of Vine that now has a TJ Maxx on the bottom? It's just south of the Carew Tower and has all of this incredible colored art deco fruit carved into the facade. Nobody has been able to tell me what that used to be; in fact most people I've asked haven't even noticed it (the carving starts on the second floor).
I remember having a similar conversation with a friend, and I am not sure if it was BS, but I was told it used to be a grocery. Dont quote me on that, but it is better than nothing.
