1470 Spring St. - SCAD Housing

Has anyone else noticed that so far the new SCAD tower looks a bit like an old soviet-era apartment block? And I don't see how their usually, just paint it all black is going to help. I didn't realize what a prominent building this would be from the interstate.

They may need to rethink the color scheme to something a little more fun, it is after all an art/design school.

I think we may be surprised at this one when it's done. I like the high qulaity renderings I've seen.

It has shot up really fast because of the precast construction technique so hopefully they will take their time with the finishes and do it right. Someone also mentioned that that is only half of the building so it will be even wider when the second half comes up.

It definitely looks really stark and out of place at the moment. I'm just hoping it turns out ok.

I couldn't tell if this was black but I guess so.

That rendering actually shows more of a texture than I've seen on any others. Hopefully that vertical grid pattern is panels or maybe painted. But even if it's subtle would be better than just flat black.

Actually the building looks nice and stands out from everything else. Looks good at night with the lighting as well. Several out of town friends mentioned this building driving the connector and none of the others over the past couple weeks. Everyone of them thought it was neat and stood out from all the other towers in a good way.
