I see your 365 Church and raise you one Design HausBetween 365 Church and this, I still have to say the former is worse..but barely. At least the balconies are...just a titch more creatively done, atleast in placement. The wave of colour thing is disgusting, but it distracts from the bad cladding of two sides of this tower....whereas 365 Church is painful on every side.
Design Haus did not retain a facade. What's there now is a mediocre-to-poor replication of a facade that was torn down… it's little consolation, but yes, it's better that it's there.At least Design Haus retains a facade and has a better street level than the other two projects. It's easily the same as 365 Church by materiality and creativity, but the retention of the facade at least saves the street corner from being a total disaster...you just gotta remind yourself to not look up unless it's pitch dark out haha.
Apologies...I totally forgot. I haven't really gotten to know the prior building too well. I think even if I had, the lack of sobriety I had passing by it on occasion would've warped my idea of whether or not this building currently going up was retaining it or not.Design Haus did not retain a facade.
