Thanks for sharing nonetheless!
I quite like the design.
Maybe you may be able to appreciate it more if you consider the context of the building across the street (E-commerce It hink) Anyway, it seems to use similar facade + it is a bit deconstructive + taller!
I think it acts as an "extension" of the E-commernce building and think it would actual look quite brilliant!
Imagine, 4-5 buildings - all glass lining up the René-Lévesque.
Also, at least for me, I find the older design a bit disconnected from its surrounding. With the new design, I find there would be a link between this building + E-Commerce, Icone + the IBM (the really tall one!)
