The rendering in the article is much better than what was in the report:

I still think the corner is a bit weak but I like the taller lower floors.

The public benefit portion for the height bonus is an aboriginal themed gallery. There was some discussion of whether the gallery space provided is good enough to qualify or if it would be redundant with the Friendship Centre nearby.

This argument seems a bit weak since the benefit is based on a dollar value that the developer is exceeding, and if anything being next door to the Friendship Centre might make this more valuable since it would be easy to visit both. It's good that they're not proposing more lighthouse statues.
