Renderings abound, but here are some close-ups of downtown's mixed-use, architect Frank Gehry-designed The Grand. One of these photos--all these images are new to us--was shown at yesterday's big downtown developer meeting about the state of the market.

So you're in the middle. That's Olive St. on the left and Grand Ave. to the right. In one of the other photos, the entrance to the rental/condominium building can be seen--it's below the silver slab. And the plaza is in the middle, near all those shiny people who are very, very busy shopping.
