Not the most revolutionary design by any means but I think it would look pleasant from the waterfront and across from old town.

It's kind of interesting but I think they could of gone a little bit taller or maybe a few parcells away to make it a little less like an office park. Something is better than nothing though, that's for sure.

Looks like a highrise office park. I don't really like it.

The West Sac riverfront was already a joke once the ziggurat was built.

The original CalSTRs building actually looks great (although I wish it was taller). This new one looks like it belongs in the suburbs.

It looks like it belongs in the 1970s.

Yes, it needs to go all glass and lose the 70s pieces of it. I would be ok with it then

It makes me wonder, who are designing these things? It looks obviously that building does not belong in this era or an urban environment. They obviously aren't cheeping out at $300 million. Do they just hire people with very bad taste?

Was this part of a Planning Committee or City Council meeting agenda? I am trying to find more information on the proposal. Thanks.

I'm not sure how visible it's going to be from the waterfront. It looks like its going to placed over the surface parking lot facing 3rd Street. So considering it's location all the fuss made about it's design seems overblown. But what else is new.
