It's been a while since there was a look at Concerto, the downtown mixed-use project that'll have all those groovy Blade Runner-esque moving displays on the side. This is the 30-story tower (271 condos) that is under construction, while the lower half of the project will have 77 lofts. The latter project will be finished somewhere around July-September 2009, and the tall tower will be done by the end of 2009. These are all planned as condos, but chance they'd instead be offered as apartments? "I don't want to say yes, but of course we'd be open to any changes that the markets takes us to," says Brenda Rodriguez, a representative for Concerto developer Sonny Astani. Also included in the project: 25,000 square feet of retail and a pedestrian landscaped walkway that will connect Fig and Flower. Marketing for the project should begin by the end of the year, while the third phase of Concerto is planned to break ground in 2010. Photos: Dan Caroselli
