Welcome to new project day! Where I'll be introducing three new residential projects coming to downtown and Midtown. The first is 3rd Street Flats, formerly the Kings Inn and codenamed K2 Apartments.3 Dec 2015
The Kings Inn is now completely gutted. You can see right through it. All of the exterior windows have been removed, leaving only support columns and the ceiling and floors. This leaves a clean slate for a variety of architectural styles.
I am hearing through the grapevine 'luxury apartments' with floor-to-ceiling glass, stained concrete floors, etc. That's just a rumor though.5 Oct 2015
Siegel Group/Suites has pulled a demo permit for all exterior signs for the Virginian, the large, closed tower adjacent to City Hall on Virginia Street. Down will come anything that says 'Virginian' on the exterior, including the large sign on the tower facing Virginia Street.

Speaking of construction permits for former hotel/casinos, Siegel Group has pulled a demo permit for interior walls, flooring and ceiling. Not sure what they have planned but it shounds like it might be more than just kitchenettes.2 Jul 2015
Historic Resources Commission meeting:
1. YESCO lighting is working on a 'modified' version of the rooftop El Cortez sign that will read 'Siegel's El Cortez' and be green, according to renderings presented.
2. Retail street-level signage will be similar to the old historic retail signs. Retail tenants at the El Cortez weren't fond of the font proposed, and the HRC proposed several fonts that would work better, and Siegel Group is supposed to make some modifications.
3. Graffiti will be removed from Stewart Park rock wall, how is not yet to be determined.12 Jun 2015
