That's what I figured. I was asking myself how Mike K. could possibly know what it feels like to ensure the happiness of other people.

Maybe I'm just in a good mood on Saturday morning but I think I'm on board with this one now. The plans show a wide range of cladding types. The massing has been "carved" to good effect (too bad the one section on Fort will line up seemingly perfectly with Escher... methinks it would have been ideal to stagger that). The ground floor seems to have a good amount of variation here and there, considering that it's all really one big unified development. If I could, I'd ask for the suggestion of a taller ground floor in spots (in particular, right on the Fort Street corner).

I am confused. Is this a seniors housing development or a Central American religious compound?

What about any of the signage depicts Central America?  You need to real it all...not just look at the pictures.

I did "real" it all and that's how I came to my Central American cult conclusion.
