Elysian could have been good if they had not messed up the crown so badly. Beaver House is a crime against humanity.

I never much liked The Elysian, but wow, is that hat ever astoundingly putrid.

Recladding that crown in glass would do it a world of good! Even if they had to put something opaque under the glass to hide mechanical equipment it would look better, less like the building has had a top hat randomly plunked onto it.

^It's like Guggenheim meets Leaning Tower of Pisa meets I don't know what. It might not be the ugliest, but it sure is wrong.
