As the iconic Trico building sits and slowly rots away, another giant new build for office & hotel space (560,000 sf) has been announced just a block away in the BNMC.
The argument the BNMC has given in the past is the lack of ways/uses available to fill the enormous 600,000 sf of Trico… and also has stated that a hotel option is not viable for the campus.. however this new build fills its capacity AND added extra floors for a hotel! Something just doesn’t seem right. You think the BNMC would be trying to get the new build to take over the existing, historic Trico building… but it doesn’t seem to be that way.
Wouldn’t Trico make some incredible, innovative office space? YES. Yes, it would. If the BNMC wanted to save Trico, one would think they would be working with the developers who need office, medical lab and hotel space to take on Trico, instead of building new.
