The podium facade already looks like it's 20 years old. The colour of the mortar seems to vary, and there are what look like patches of bricks that were later replaced (even though they're probably original).

However the independant businesses are a hair salon, beauty product store, and a waxing place. Hardly high profile businesses.

Ah well, these services have to open up shop somewhere I guess.

People require such businesses; nothing wrong with any of those. They are as part of healthy, mixed neighbourhood as any business.

It's too bad the podium looks like the 80s, or a mish-mash of contemporary frit glazed balconies with a dull, outdated brick colour, further worsened by red and black accents.

The podium wouldn't be that bad if it at least had quality workmanship. The bricks look awful.

The combination of black window frames and that slightly brown/purple charcoal brick is also a weak point for the podium.
