A proposed new hotel wing at the Coeur d’Alene Resort would blend in better with the existing hotel and convention center if the flat roofline had more variation, members of the city’s design review commission said Thursday. “To me this is just a flat, flat box,” commission member Jef Lemmon said in a hearing with Hagadone Hospitality Corp.’s architect and development consultant. Lemmon, a Coeur d’Alene architect, said he also has reservations about the relatively smooth surface of the tower’s west side, where guest rooms would face Lake Coeur d’Alene and Independence Point. “What’s bothering me is that wall. It feels like a wall as you’re coming into Coeur d’Alene,” he said/Scott Maben, SR. More here.

Question: What does the proposed tower look like to you?
