I am not sure about the likelihood but, what is even going on with these renderings?

We should all be pretty used to the quasi absurd creative license taken with perspective adjustments in renderings but these are just weird.

This… huh?

^ That's accurate. Just looks funny.

The viewpoint is on the exact axis of the angled side of the building

Go look at how distorted the surrounding buildings are in the other renderings with similarly sharp perspective. Everything is dramatically over-foreshortened.

While nothing looks 'technically' wrong if you track receding lines to their vanishing points, it does very much look like how photoshop used to unfortunately bloat landscapes when doing perspective/lens corrections. Its an odd set of choices given the early renderings had a heavy bias for showing the building from that northeast angle that used the off grid alignment of the tower to make it look quite thin.

Ugh bland architecture getting blander with the "inverted bay" windows removed from the base.

Still, these renderings make clear that this complex has NO parking podium, all parking is underground so that should be commended.
