Lofts Beneath My Very Nose

Sometimes residential projects Downtown just sneak up on me. For instance, earlier this week I saw some wooden overhang go in over the sidewalk of the building across the street from work. I wondered what kind of construction they were doing.

Turns out that the building at the NE corner of 7th & Flower is actually the future "Roosevelt Lofts" with an estimated completion in Q3 2007. The conversion's being designed by Killefer Flammang Architects, who apparently either have been or will be responsible for the designs on like half of Downtown's Adaptive Reuse conversions.

From the exterior that's a beautiful building, so I hope the interior conversion is just as impressive. There are a couple renderings on the Architects' website, but the exterior ones don't make a lot of sense to me by themselves.
