H&H (Homer & Helmcken) is one of the shorter, squatter, bulkier Downtown South projects designed in this case by IBI/HB. The height is squeezed by one of the viewcones across the area – enough buildings have been finished now that an aerial photo quite clearly shows where they run. The building ran into a few difficulties when the developer was accused of selling the same unit to more than one person, pocketting two deposits, and after receivership the remaining units were sold off in 2008 once it was completed. It replaced a more substantial building than most of Downtown South sites had on them before redevelopment (which dated back to 1926).
