^^ I agree with the height being a let down, but I think the garage is still great. It's pretty unique these days to have a fully enclosed, let alone a glass enclosure, garage that is integrated into the overall design of the building. While a bit out of place on its own, I hope the next building that is to be built to the east will be able to compliment and exceed my expectations of Optima.

^ Problem is, the garage consumes too much of the structure. It's too big. That wouldn't have been as much of an issue had the building been taller.

I hope the 2nd tower has a totally different design..

Depends to a degree on what it is reflecting - the NBC tower with it's fine vertical lines will make it look wavy - clouds look very sharp.

Great angles George.
