I much preferred the older design of the tower but the lack of balconies is refreshing, and the grid pattern still makes for a more robust looking building. The podium seems awkward and top-heavy. It may have looked better if they had carried the top portion of the podium down to the street, or at least balanced the materials better by not going almost exclusively with glass and paneling through the ground plane.

The mural is a great idea, but isn't it going to be soon covered up when the Grand redevelops?

i doubt the Grand will redevelop soon - that previous proposal on the site was pretty clearly tailored to ensure that Grid provided the 12.5m setback to their property line.

Mural is fantastic - wow does it ever add life to that spot.
And nice light feature too. Not spectacular, but nice.
