I don't really like the cladding on this one. It's not the colours. Just seems kinda B Grade in quality. That said, I've been to the Beltline Safeway a couple of times in the last week and Mark leaves quite an impression.

Yes, the height is quite impressive when you are in the area.

The renderings gave me the impression that the building would have aluminium panels instead of stucco. Overall it's a pretty solid looking building. It's funny how some buildings turn out better than expected and some not.

Yeah, this one definitely hasn't turned out as good as expected, but I still like the project. I feel like Qualex has learned their lesson and is being much more realistic with the closeup renders of Park Point (showing all the spandrelly areas and whatnot).

Still looking forward to seeing the cantilevered golden box on the amenities level.
