It's not great but not bad. Not bad at all.

I can't help looking at the Hassalo buildings in Lloyd Center and wish we had more of that going up as infill downtown. But this looks like it will blend in rather than stand out, and that's fine. It's no Hassalo, but it'll be a huge upgrade for the site it's planned for.

I really quite like it. Should be a handsome addition to the area.

This just seemed like a proposal to beat IZ regs. I'm surprised they are pushing forward!

I thought so too, but I like what they've done on the design. Also, while I'd like to see downtown increase in height, the limited 200' design will not take away from the prominence of the KOIN tower on the skyline. I'm all in favor!

So basically it is a boring infill building that has a small portion of the building that could potentially be a piece of really cool architecture. Unless of course they settle on the boring design for the little portion too. Either way, it will make good infill and make that area feel much more dense.

I think it's tasteful infill with an urban presence which is exactly what this area needs. Not an architectural masterpiece, but I don't think it's trying to be.

I think this one looks just fine, although the SE corner column looks heavy in every one of those iterations IMHO.

Oh good, you figured out that my post was my personal opinion....not sure it needed "fixing" because I am confident others are smart enough to figure out that I didn't mean my opinion was everyone's opinion.

I apologize. It was my pent-up response to pervasive negativity.

No worries, we all get mad at the internet some times. The building itself is fine and will blend into that area well, I just think it looks boring.
