It is barely visible in the rendering. It's the squat building with the black sloped roof just west of the tall white building on the north side of George.
I am no fan of stucco, but as the finishing continues the building is not nearly as bad as I feared when I first saw the stucco being applied. The brickwork and glass finishes on its front facing Caroline looks, well, typical for any new urban long-term stay hotel anywhere really.
