The south and east elevations are as bad as Sapphire!
Correction: worse than Sapphire. The building looks absolutely hideous coming down Melville...like one of Concord's earliest ugly white spandrel towers - except with an exposed core for extra ugliness. But in typical Vancouver fashion, this thing was approved, looked good from one angle in one rendering, and sold out in a few weeks, so it's all good!
You know, this is working for me now. I didn't expect the balconies to continue jutting out further as the building climbs, nor did I expect the homage to The Crime Lab that the podium seems to be creating.
