Not sure that building can be used as an example of anything. It's a federal government build, and would not have been subject to any of the municipal planning rules. Even if it had been built to 100 storeys we would have probably been build with the same crappy design, because I'm sure the only marching order on that one was "we don't want to be seen wasting tax dollars, we need the absolute minimum cost per square foot".
