Fresh renderings for the Crown Group’s proposed tower at 11th and Hill streets show that the developer has significantly altered its plans. Images from the Australian firm Koichi Takada Architects reveal a 70-story building, an increase from an original 52-story proposal.
Last year the developer detailed plans for 528 condominiums in the tower at 1111 S. Hill St.; it is unclear if that number has changed. The project is being labeled the “Sky Trees,” for the design inspired by California’s redwood trees, according to Koichi Takada Architects.
Renderings of the glass and steel complex show reddish-bronze metal, evoking the trees. It consists of two masses, one significantly taller than the other, that both sport sloped roofs topped with trees and green space. No budget or timeline have been revealed. The Australian website CommercialRealEstate.com first reported on the new designs.
