Our coverage of downtown rooftop pools takes a break to consider the hot tub planned for the Great Republic Building, which is set to be completed in 3rd quarter 2008. Located at 756 Spring Street, on the corner of 8th and Spring, the adaptive re-use project will eventually offer 72-units, David Lawrence Gray, the architect on the project, tells us. Not sure how many people can be squeezed into that tub, but likely the thing is already deeper than any nearby pool. Also planned for the roof: an enclosed gym and a garden.
