It looks good from a couple angles thanks to the patterning, but I would have to agree with you... there are too many important spots that this one misses for me, and some of the fixes are dead obvious and probably not that unreasonable to implement.Well, part of it does...the other part of this tower is bland,and the podium is a flunk. This is bot that great at all IMO.
I think the balconies aren't full width to reduce the apparent bulk of that part of the towers. If that were full width it might overpower the width of the patterned tower and look like a big shoulder. The balcony length matches the width of the patterned tower in scale.And on the portion of the tower without the pattern, I think it would've ended up more cohesive if they had employed wrap-around balconies in order to better cover up the window wall. However, they'd need some balcony guards with a better colouring, the seafoam green isn't working.
