I see now Farwell has been prepped to receive her facade back (probably not until later in the project though).

From a distance I think this looks good except for the white windows. I still don't get why he has to use white windows on every building. Black windows would of made this look alot better.

Kind of off-topic, but I love the "Tip Top Tap" sign on the Allerton Hotel.

On topic, how many floors does this have left? 4 or 5?

No, not seriously. Black, white, polka dot.... I'm not a fan of this building. Glad to see activity, but not happy with the product.

^When I first saw the design I was really liking this building, but then the facade started to get put on and I lost all hope for it. Now with that last shot I quoted I think it can still come out decent....
