Blogotr.com: REMARK HOSPITALITY, CORE REDEVELOPMENT PROPOSE MIXED-USE PLAN FOR OLD SCPA

Highlights of RHD’s plan include:

PROJECT SPECIFICS

100-unit Hilton Garden Inn TM, Doubletree by Hilton, or a Four Points by Sheraton Hotel, yet to be determined
36 residential apartments, including 2 luxury 3,000 sq. ft. penthouses, each with their own pool
4,000 sq. ft. upscale fine dining restaurant, with adjacent banquet space, accomodating up to 200 for events
4,500 sq. ft. day spa & salon
Starbuck’s Café lobby kiosk
6,000 sq. ft. fitness center with running track, basketball courts, steam room, sauna, and whirlpools (to serve apartment residents and hotel guests, local Pendleton homeowners, with availability for public use through membership
Entertainment venue featuring stage shows/dinner theatre offering both traditional theatre-style and tabletop/booth back seating
An HGI American Grill TM coffee shop with a daily all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet, or other specified restaurants
A beautiful public-use recreational park on the existing green space, to be architecturally designed to compliment the Pendleton community.

If this happens, this is a gamechanger for Pendleton and OTR. It’s a big money project that could anchor the redevelopment of the entire area.

LaRosa’s pizza, really? Locally, I’d take Dewey’s pizza or a wood fired pizza from A Tavola locally before eating LaRosa’s.

Bleacherreport.com: 15 Pictures of Yao Ming Making Tall People Look Short

Some great photos of Yao Ming towering over other tall people.

Here’s an additional photo from Jeremy Lin’s Facebook timeline. Jeremy Lin looks like a little kid even though he’s 6′ 2″. Even Dikembe Mutumbo at 7′ 2″ looks small. It’s a shame that foot injuries shortened Yao’s career, but you almost have to expect it with someone so tall carrying so much weight.
