Hmm, that's a tough one. I respect it, it's honest. The parking podium is about the best that can be expected. But they didn't bury the parking when they could have.
I'm not a fan of protruding balconies if they don't form a coherent exterior. And maybe it's just me, but something about raw concrete just feels bleak. Remember Total Recall, the original?
