Thanks for posting. Those are some details! I am thinking this development will look pretty good.
Composite is often used interchangeably for fiber cement/hardie board/etc. It's more of a residential product, but for a multi family project of this size, it probably makes sense. It's a higher quality option than say, vinyl siding.
This one looks topped out, mostly. I am surprised by how short it looks, particularly compared to what was there. I just keep telling myself it's hundreds of new residents where an abandoned buildin had stood for years, though.
It's up to the fourth floor, which is what I was getting at. It's not totally framed, but they have the decking up, so it's basically topped out.
I noticed that you can't see it whem coming up over the MLK bridge over the Grand River. So I figure that the floors can't be much more than 10 feet at the most.
I really don't know why I expected it to make more of an impact on the skyline. But to give a comparison, Block600 is also four stories tall. But some elevations I've seen show it as almost 70 feet tall. The taller first floor for the grocer is a big part of that, but I also think the residential and hotel floors are taller, too.
