Opus is the next phase of Concord's Park Place development. Two towers, appear to be around 35s.

Typical generic and conservative design, pretty much consistent with Concord Park Place overall. My main issue though is the total failure to create a urban village with any pedestrian appeal. At least try to create a high-rise community with establishing city blocks incorporating animated podiums to allow for potential future urban integration, and activity circulation.

This whole development is a complete flop ...

Cityplace downtown got more right then they are here ... if anything you'd think they'd learn there lessons and improve. But the built form of cityplace downtown is quite a bitter better, and that's sad.

Reminds a LOT of the NY tower complex and Sheppard and Bayview in terms of built form.
