I actually agree with you. I think it looks good, but I personally don't think it interacts with the old facades in any meaningful way proportionally. Maybe I'll feel differently in person, but I actually prefer the original design, although it doesn't suit the change in use. It just looks like they made a project and would rather the original buildings have nothing to do with it

The only retail being filled that I care about was Raising Cane's at 40th and Walnut. And now it's open, so I am satisfied.
My thirst for Cane's is a never-ending battle. I go to put ketchup on a burger and wish it was Cane's sauce. I go to put creamer in my coffee and grab Cane's sauce instead. I hope to one day find a way to get my faucet to dispense Cane's sauce instead of water.
