Looks like they saved the podium on the park side. That looks world's better. Hope they do the same on the river side.

So far, this thing looks just like the renders. Based on that, they are going to put up some sort of screen on the west- and south-facing sections of the parking podium.



While there was a lot of griping about "value engineering" over this one, the original (placeholder?) design had a giant blank wall. I view the version being built as a roughly equivalent to the original. It's good/not great.

Let's hope the next tower returns to the liner townhouses. Those are really great; I think people would pay nicely for a low-level view of the park instead of just endless buildings.

Of course they don't have to be townhouses... could be regular simplex apartments etc. Maybe give them a separate entrance so they feel exclusive, and certainly direct access from the garage behind.

Did we figure out why they killed the townhouses on Reed? Did the ones on Cooper not perform well, or was it just a snap Covid decision that they needed more parking?

Agreed. The white modern look is very pleasant aesthetically and works well with the overall site plan. I wish Lakeshore East would have gone with a similar design instead of the odd proportioned brick motif that was used.

At this point I'm assuming none of the future towers here will look anything like their place holders. Which is kind of exciting.

^Yeah, but I was hoping for the angled support beams on the two towers along the river.

It's not bad, but I do wish they kept the townhomes. I'd hate for this park they are building to be surrounded by parking garages. Even if the remaining buildings don't follow the townhome model that the Reed did, maybe they just skirt the parking garage with active space, like a common room/event room, or the gym, something other than an inactive garage. I'd be ok with the design changing (although I did love those exposed supports) as long as they keep some kind of active face towards the park.

I guess I'm in the minority here, but I think this building is hideous. The black is so out of place and moody to me, especially next to all the brighter white buildings in the same development. I suppose I'm especially biased, since I really do not like the current trend of breaking up the facade of buildings by offsetting windows, seemingly at random.

Maybe I'll warm up to it once I see the finished product.
