Because whoever the project manager, in his or her infinite wisdom, said "durr, lets make it look like this, durr, and den all the pictures and people will like it, durr" People who building buildings in London REALLY need to have to be slapped by common folk sometimes. I work with disabled children, and I have a better eye for this stuff than those who work professionally for it... fucking sad... Should have stuck with architecture for a career.

Yeah but that shows no yellow bricks. I could visualize it but I would prefer a picture if somebody is in the area.

I don't mind the different coloured facades. I'm not drooling over this building or anything, but I'm fairly happy considering it's just an affordable housing complex. The yellow and red kind of helps to break up the building. Here's to hoping they can land some good tenants for those shiny new storefronts.

I actually like this from Dundas street, the different brick helps break things up. As you mentioned I also hope to see some decent storefronts which will slowly help that small section get some "good" life back into it.

Last weekend I decided to take a couple pictures of the area behind Dundas. The little back alley (Marshall Street) is pretty bombed out, it'll be interesting to see if this building has any kind of impact.

^Great pictures! The area to the west of the tower looks like it could have been a nice little courtyard or garden, but unfortunately it looks like it will just be parking.
