^ Yeah, I don't necessarily dislike it, but I don't think there's much grace there, even though the designers clearly had that in mind. I definitely would have preferred it in another location - with a bit more breathing room.
It doesn't feel much like "home" because the elements are too repetitive and monotonous, like a giant Portman hotel maybe, without the creativity. It does look straight out of Dallas or Atlanta or somewhere like that.
The detailing is weak and the material palette too naive. It's simultaneously too much and not enough. If it had been clad in a Sofitel-like glass, one might have really appreciated the curve and the cut-out would have had a nice interplay of reflections. The way they are now, one has to think the architects were saying, "Whoa, that's a helluva lot of building to put on that corner."
It's just kind of an agreeable dud to me.
