I wonder how feasible it would be to hang some sort of porous but reflective blue scrim covering the blow-through. I don't think I can really like this building in its current state of completion.

I know I'm beating a mummified horse but that singular mechanical vent patch on the east facade bugs me so much. It's like look at all the other major towers in the skyline - none of them have a mistake like that.


Otherwise it's nice, I don't even really mind the vents on the south facade because they look somewhat intentional.

^Agreed. There is also one on the west side. How does something like that happen?

I would suspect it happens because Lowenberg didn't want to spend the money or the square footage necessary in the mechanical risers to have direct exhaust from the kitchens.

So, when a buyer of a multi-million dollar unit says they want direct exhaust, they get it.
