We shall see.
Yes, I think this is the appropriate comparison, not something in Tempe. It's clearly meant to extend the orange brick used on the base up to the top of the tower, rather than having a stark divide between the two.

Here is the Tempe version, for reference - it's a corrugated metal panel, not smooth, and it plays against the exposed concrete for a raw/unfinished look. The podium is also funky and sculptural with contrasting metal, not contextual with brick.
