I am not a fan either.

The beige/gold glazing looked horribly 1980s and the bulky columns on the north side looked terrible.

Hopefully someone a bit more skilled will be involved in this project if it even gets that far. Unfortunately I have a feeling they will be looking for the cheapest architect they can find... not the best.
