The only saving grace for this tone deaf, clunky piece of garbage is its moderate height and (meagre!) setbacks, which means it won't be very visible from most angles. Reduced height or bolder setbacks would be a slight improvement.
This might be another high water mark for HP. Blows me away how exceptional they can be when paired with the right developer. As someone upthread said, this development is sublime and filled with exquisite details. (I don't even mind the bare concrete column--it adds yet another texture imo)

Maybe they think that shutting down streets to cars and turning them into pedestrian zones is a gateway to hordes of infected people looting stores and creating general mayhem. ( similar to what happens in most pandemic/dystopian movies)
My god, he's sounding like last week's Trump. Has he not watched any news over the last 48 hours? Maybe he's still so broken up over the failure of his beloved blue license plates that he can't process any additional bad news.
