Rooftop Cabins – What were you guys thinking?

The Rooftop Cabins, perched atop the historic El Moore building, may be the most creative and controversial element of our renovation project.  In Episode 1 of our podcast collection, “Stories of the El Moore,” we explain the series of decisions that led to the current design of the Rooftop Cabins, even how they got their name.  We cover all this from a triple bottom-line viewpoint…that is, addressing economic, community and environmental needs.  We are continually trying to find the innovative balance between all of them.   Take a listen, let us know what you think.
