The vast untended lot stretching from Pine Street over to Bush Street has been left idle for years now, with proposals for a Heller-Manus designed office tower having fallen through, thwarted by the recession. Now that the city's economy is booming again, new renderings for the 19-story tower at 350 Bush have surfaced on the CAC group's website, and the building's design seems to want to cater to younger workers, most of whom aren't enthused by the idea of cubicles, fluorescent lighting or white walls. Interior renderings show open concept office spaces with modern design features and plenty of light. The exterior of the proposed tower is also a departure from the more traditional design originally proposed for the site, with all-glass cladding and little detailing or stonework. Thankfully, the historic Mining Exchange Building on Bush Street will be retained and renovated as part of the project. Though there's no word on any exact timeline for completion, rather optimistic projections of a 2015/2016 delivery are floating around the web.
