I wouldn't call the tower blasphemy. It's just nothing special. Looks like a run of the mill aA glass box from 10 years ago. I'll accept it.

Thanks for the pics Austin.
Mini me and the podium is nice but taller tower is a blasphemy. :(

I'll split the difference.............

The podium and the north (shorter) tower are by far the better components of this development (though still far from perfect).

Blasphemy is a tad strong for south tower............

But it is extremely blah; and I see no reason to accept blah!

Aim for Perfection; settle for Excellence...........not mediocrity.

The reason why I'll accept it is because the project as a whole has more good than bad and have you seen the steaming pile of dung a block away from G+C?

I have.

No argument from me that it could be considerably worse.

But, in my way of thinking, it is not a compelling case to go to Burger King, that the alternative is McDs.

I'd still rather have a 1/3lbs freshly ground, dry-aged, chuck patty, seared over a mesquite grill and cooked through safely to a medium well so it's still nice and juicy.........on an egg-onion bun, schmeared with a good aioli, some mustard, thinly shaved red onion and a single, ripe, slice of beefsteak tomato.
