I live in the condo directly next to the building and this paint job is a marked improvement! It looks fantastic and I can't wait for it to be completed. I think you need to get your eyesight checked.I posted the info below in the EIFS thread, but I'm also posting this here to keep track of whatever they do to this poor thing. I'll post pictures as the 'modernization' advances.
I urge you to email the manager to get this stopped, though.
Idunno about the indoor pool thing, but don't these qualify as pools on the beach?Sydney Australia has swimming pools built right on the beach, overlooking the ocean. They look really good. Some even have a bar beside them. I wouldn't mind a few places like that on our waterfront, especially indoor/outside combinations, so they could be used all year round.
I'm hoping that since they are clearly putting in a lot of money to paint them in the first place that money will go into maintaining it. They halted work over the winter because paint does not adhere well in cold weather, so they're already demonstrating that this project is thought out.Except the image you've posted is an EIFS refinishing, whereas MLQ is being painted; at least the texture and patterning of the brick will be retained. The biggest issue here is its potential appearance a few years down the road if the paint isn't judicially maintained. Lest we have 21 storeys of this.
