Dead-Ass Proposal of the Week-- April 24th

Residences at the Rodin

2100 Hamilton Street

See, it even looks dead in the rendering.
                      This is one of those dead proposals like the Aerial Tramway and Parkway22. Like those others, it pretended that it was going to be built but still managed to fail. The Residences at the Rodin was yet another pathetic-ass attempt to cash in on the mid-00s building boom. Had it actually been built, it probably would be sitting there emptier than it looks in the shitty rendering above.

  1. At least Parkway 22 had a website. This place never looked like more than a design student's first experience with CAD.

  2. The assbuckets who did the prep work in this hole were ripping up quality materials and fencing so as to "appear" to be serious about this ludicrous proposal. I had personally talked to Darrell Clarke about this and he said that it was in fact a serious idea and he was good friends with the planners. Ever since then it's been the Darryll Clarke Hole. Someone is going to spend over a million on a unit across the street from a police station and that wawa clusterfuck? Keep dreaming, champs.
