I like that the new version breaks up the horizontal forms in favor of vertical lines, and instantly makes the space feel much more urbane.

Now, about that parking garage to the West...
You said exactly what I was thinking - agreed 100%.

This update looks great but seriously, the worst offender is the parking garage. What a waste of such prime waterfront property. Hopefully that'll be a part of another project, replacing the garage with underground parking and a new tower on top.

This one has seen a number of revisions and updates over the past few months. Here are renders from the most recent Architectural Plans dated April 21, 2020. Not much has changed but there are a few differences if you look closely:

Really hope that the pedestrian realm fronting the slip will be improved since it's sort of a harsh space at the moment, with very few soft spaces/materials or shelter.

Also curious about the parking garage- are they going to have that much amenity space on the roof, or is it just render magic?

I expect we'll see another tower proposed on the garage site within the next couple years, so they're not going to spend much on that rooftop terrace now.

With their ever evolving attempts to throw the symmetry off of these buildings for no really good reasons, let's hope it never gets built. >.<

I'm concerned about the mishmash of styles, but heck, I didn't think they could pull off the paint job of the two older towers, and was pleasantly surprised.
