It looks pretty good and I'm excited about the continuing densification of this district, but I agree with the sentiment that it would be nice to be rid of all the vacant lots before demolishing existing buildings. Though the site is pretty underused at present (giant parking lot in the rear) and I suppose it was only a matter of time.

It would be nice if this building and Trillium could the same parking ramp rather than having two right next to each other (i.e. excavate and punch a hole at the B1 level). It would be less disruptive for pedestrians and free up a bit of additional space for more retail and parking.

Otherwise design-wise it looks great. I love that it's built right up to the street line with continuous shop frontage. I can't take that for granted living in Hong Kong - most new development here fronts the street with blank walls, ventilation grilles, utility rooms - and it really kills the street life.
