To be fair, I believe that building owes most of its banal design to its function as a military barracks. Not much cutting edge architecture to be found here.

Maple is ~20 stories and didn't turn out too bad.

Not that I mean to be an apologist for the height caps, I would love to see some variety and taller buildings.
