True and it is not always a building moving from terrible to OK (or better) it also happens the other way when a development undergoes 'the cheapening' and/or the execution is poor. We can all think of examples and you are right that we should not be too quick to judge. (Though I am not holding my breath for that to happen :-> )this happens all the time here because people start judging buildings when they're like 30% complete
Agreed, yep. They add something important. As do the articulations on the south side--and that's exactly what I think is missing also on the north side.Really coming around to this building the more I see of it. It's certainly nothing amazing but it fits in nicely along this stretch and it's hardly visible on the skyline anyways. Those orange bands really stand out in such a colour deprived part of the city.
Those willow trees on the little knolls and the edge of the beach are really nice in the summer. This building is going to be fantastic from the Sugar Beach side.This is the first time I've seen a photo of this project and actually thought wow, this looks good.
Just need a few trees to cover up a good chunk of it and it turns into something neat!
