I really don't mind this building, I actually kinda like the bands. It's short but it seems dense. It's not as dense as I thought due to the atrium, but it still looks pretty good. It really is hard to tell from just these pics. As long as the cladding is quality and the street interaction is top notch I'm ok with it. I'd love to see more of these site-filling projects fill up some of the holes in old-town. Give me glass and super modern design to contrast and compliment with the designs in old town. Don't try to match the exact style of the old buildings, but match their quality and energy. These buildings are all trying to out-do each other in terms of detail and design, our modern buildings should do the exact same thing and be the absolute best they can be.
I'd have to see some more pics, but I actually do rather like the design. Simple horizontal bands, light colours, and smooth rounded corners.
