Yeah they value engineered this building after approval, it seems. The staggered window pattern on the non-glass portion was replaced with the more boring windows you see now, and then there's the issue with the crown that you mentioned.

Same thing that happened at NEMA with the same architect (Handel): dishonest renderings (maybe coupled with VE). It's why I'm concerned about the Mexican Museum/760 Mission building by the same guys.

Yes--this happens far, far too often here. The worst case in point is Trinity Place, but there have been many for a long time.
