The Pullman Update #7

The Pullman, a new 14-story, 142-unit apartment project in Union Station, is all coming together as we are now able to get an idea of what the completed building will look like.

The facade of the apartment tower will feature two shades of brick, beige and black, along with a glass curtain wall on the upper floors. This is a very meticulous process but will yield great results once complete. Below are two photos of The Pullman showing the more completed southwest side.

Facade work is underway for the northeast and central portion of the building. The central section, currently wrapped by scaffolding, will feature the darker brick. In a separate observation, the brickwork between The Pullman and Alara Union Station is somewhat similar.

The Pullman should be complete later this year which is when we will stop by one last time for a visit.

    The scale of The Green Solution looks so silly right next to the Pullman

    I like the overall design of this building but I wish more of this cycle’s construction didn’t reply upon beige, grey, black, white, and tan. I think the dark purple terracotta on the Coloradoan looks interesting and refined.

      I agree that the dark purple looks great, but you’re just not going to find a lot of non-earth tones (green, yellow, etc.) on high rise exteriors. Beige, gray, black, white, and tan stand the test of time and sell better. Would you buy an orange or pink building? If so, good luck attracting tenants.

      I personally think they also use earth tone colors to match the environment as well. It just blends in the landscape well. If you look at another city like Miami, FL for example, they build with white, blue, coral, and it works there. So there is certainly an environmental factor I think.

    Is there any hope that the small lot across from the Pullman near the railroad tracks could become a pocket park?

      Ah, yes. The ol’ relaxing park experience directly adjacent to passing trains and overhead power lines! Already got my picnic basket packed! Pretty sure a building structure would do considerably more good for the neighborhood, which is already three blocks from the beautiful Commons Park, blocking out noise from the rail lines and providing street-level utility to an increasingly dense neighborhood.
