Well of course hes going to say that. What is he going to do, slam his own building?
Anyway, my thoughts on the streetwall of this buildings is that there is one flaw, and thats the setback. Its too low in the context of the other buildings. I would have kept it flush (like every other building on the block) until you reached the top of the wall, then started to build in the setbacks. Its certainly not destroying the wall in any way, but it could have gone that just a little bit further. Such details are the difference between mediocre and good buildings, good buildings and great.
