Massing and facades look good, just needs some variation in colour from my point of view.

A quick run through trusty Photoshop to give it some variation:

Needs some kind of a roof on top. Looks too much of a box like structure. It would be nice if they recess back the last few floors then maybe add some kind of modern type of rooftop to it.

This is bad and a redesign should be considered. I know there are other parks down here but this is an opportunity to add something extraordinary. A site this large needs more.

This site appears to be very similar to the scale of Teardrop Park in TriBeCa in Manhattan. With four tall towers, one on each corner, a gorgeous public space is created in the centre.

We could do this here too.

The facade is nice, but it falls into the too-much-of-a-good-thing trap, and ends up looking monotonous.

They should switch it up between brick and metal facades, IMO.
