Was not a fan of it at first, but agree, it's not as noticeable as I was expecting. It's still very meh, but nothing to get upset over.

Everyone expects each new development to be trophy buildings.

Never thought a trophy building - although I wish they'd have incorporated the corner building into the overall plan after closing Perch Pub - but thought it might stick out a bit more since it's such a glaringly modern style compared to the rest of South Broad.

Not true.

I'm completely okay with a good percentage of tall buildings being relatively non-descript glass boxes.

This one actually detracts from the environment. I'd rather look at open, blank sky.

I have to agree with Scottydont. It is unreasonable to expect every building to be cutting edge or flawlessly timeless. Do you remember the garage that occupied this space? I can't say I love the Cambria but it is a vast improvement over what was there and that is all I can really hope for. The renders (taken with a grain of salt) indicate the Perch will be incorporated into the overall design.

I know some people dislike this project anyway, but that beam...

I wonder if that brown beam will be painted.... Its grey in the renderings, and I gotta say it really bring this project down.

Maybe the brown is just a protective film covering like the blue film on the CITC.

It's really giving a nod to the brown brick building to the left. The architects felt sympathetic about it. LOL.

The more I think about it, the more I think this is almost Neo-Brutalist. What a dreadful thought indeed.
