Initial thoughts? ^ Doesn't have to be too specific.

Good to hear, I always enjoy seeing local firms getting some much needed national attention.

Oh no! You telling me the only reason I can't get my render fix is due to the extremist, job-killing, socialist, weak-on-defense, communist, dijon-mustard-eating, kow-towing, arugla-topped, effette, egg-headed, fascist, terrorist-loving, acorn-gobbling, raging liberal, grandma-killing, America-hating wishes of the White House???

OBAMA IS A RENDERIST!!

^ The unveiling has begun! I like what I (can) see so far. Thanks for posting. Is this design finalized....a done deal? Or are there other possibilities/renderings of a totally different design? Thanks again for this.

Wow--think of the noise and heat reduction that wall will perform.

The view from that side of building has to suck.

OK, I will say it...

The "Vegetative Skin" has to be the stupidest looking building feature I've ever seen. With the possible exception of Frodo Baggins, I can't imagine anyone would want to work behind that giant Wall of Asparagus. This is worse than doing nothing.

now for something completely different...

i love it! I realize it's an early rendering, but the concept is fantastic. It's appeal for me is the same as the Portland Building in that it's not great design but it is completely different than the ubiquitous usual glass and concrete tower. And that's also why I'm not crazy about the zgf tower or 12 west or whatever they call it...it looks like basic glass rectangle without much interest(imo)

The roof looks like the bottom of a Nike running shoe & the vegetation looks like racks of area rugs. I like it!

if the living roofs in this town are any indication, it will be dead and dry within 6 months.

That said, kudos for trying something new. At least we get SOMETHING for our $110Million.

OMGAWD, I should have been more careful what I wished for. I was only kidding about the Arugula.

Love it or hate it, Portland will likely get a lot of press on this one.
