Kirkor does Hariri Pontarini. I like it. It is an improvement over the last design, and its architecture is worthy of this visually important intersection (a brick apartment building would have looked a bit off with the high-tech Well office tower across the street).
Yes. Very nice. I hope this will make this a better intersection as well. The intersection of Front and Spading is rather like an on and off ramp to the freeway ..always busy...everyone rushing..a bit chaotic. With the Well and this proposal every things coming up rosy.
This re-design makes me extremely happy. Front West is absolutely dismal west of University Avenue. If this gets built, this and CBC would be the only buildings I'd save from a wrecker's ball. CBC isn't all that nice either though.... especially at street level.
I'm happy with reservations. This is an improvement over the terrible brick design. It's not great by any means. A convoluted and disjointed inspiration. I also doubt Kirkor's capabilities to turn rendering into reality.
