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.

^ Hopefully soon.

I mean, if this starts this summer it won't be completed till summer 2022 at the earliest, well beyond pandemic related issues.

Well, most would assume either a vaccine or herd immunity would be reached by then. Alternatively, like most things that have a .02% chance of killing you, we compartmentalize it and move on with our lives. Someone's gonna take the gamble that it all blows over eventually, since it's not like people are going to be living like we have been for eternity.

Despite all the doom and gloom, it does appear that the real-estate developers are betting on this blowing over. Here is to hoping they are right.
