I'm hearing that FSU is releasing bids for an architect of this project which is encouraging considering my hope, shared with some here, that the design we saw previously would not be imposed on this new downtown site. I'm hoping for something that goes vertical (maybe wishful thinking) and I'd really like to see a linear water fountain along the Gaines Street sidewalk. Can't wait to see what the designers draw up.


Good news. FSU has strict arch guidelines that won't differ much from what you see. It has allowed FSU to maintain a beautiful campus. Basically 5-7 stories max.
I'm crossing my fingers and hoping they do something iconic. I understand FSU's campus is indeed very beautiful. But this one should step it up a notch considering its downtown. I've seen some great university buildings in downtown areas across the country and this is Tallahassee's opportunity to have something special ourselves.
