Looks like the detail around the parking podium might still happen. Overall, very bland, to say the least, IMO.

I agree in the blandness of it. IMO the balconies would have helped this one out quite a bit.

Since they lost the balconies and bolder striped glass will they skimp on the podium too? I thought all the green on the LSD side would be the best part of the building.

I like the simplified version (then again I AM a a fan of minimalism) but the low quality of the cladding is so disappointing.

I really wish they kept the recessed balconies on this one, it would have made a world of difference to break up that monotonous curtain wall. Oh well, hopefully the LSD frontage turns out alright.

If that podium turns out like the renderings I won't hate it but right now I agree with you completely.

I think the only hope for this one is summer light. I don't think gray winter days complement it at all.

I dont understand the complaining. True it's just a box, but it is very handsome because of the clean crisp lines and the variation in color it brings to that block. The blue glass stands out better than any other glass building in those photos, and the cladding seems to have been done very cleanly. In other words, it doesn't look cheap at all and that's saying a lot considering it is primarily rental apartment units, no?

I Totally Agree with you, except that I was to shy to say it, with all the judgment out there!
