I wish they covered all the painted panels with the glass curtain wall they used at the top.

Am I the only one who thinks this looks like a mess? I honestly don’t mind the grade level but the top look like a pile of junk.

Yeah it's embarrassingly bad - even worse considering they put this shlock up next to the Scottish Rite.

+2 for the last two comments.

It's garbage with no architectural value, sorry supporters.

I mean by Hamilton standards it's probably the best new build we've had so far, but that will probably be supplanted by KiWi very soon, and we have much better projects in the pipeline with 41 Wilson and Television City as well..

But yea, it's not great either. Personally I think it's just bland and inoffensive. It's not ugly per se, but not attractive either. Hamilton has a lot of ugly new buildings, including Vrancor's new project kitty corner to this one, which are far worse offenders.

On the plus side it makes the scottish rite building look MUCH better in comparison - poor scottish rite, surrounded by generic crap.
