I don't know. I kinda think Wolf Point South looks like a taller version of Wolf Point East

I looked at the renderings again, and it looks like WPS will have a slightly different facade treatments than WPE. That should add for some interesting texture when the two are placed side by side.

Not my view. Place belongs to a couple of good friends of mine but yes, I warned them WPS is on its way. Good thing they rent!

Every time I drive into the city along 90/94 I am in awe at how beautifully Deco this tower turned out. Its setbacks are damn near perfect! Can't wait for a taller "twin".

She looks great. My only complaint is the crown isn't tall enough.

Definitely nice looking building. That crown really puts it a cut above.

Only curiosity, is the concrete work at the amenities floor cut-out getting painted/finished? It looks awfully drab as it is now and doesn't seem to cohere with all the white trim elsewhere.

A glass facade labelled as Deco? Color me stupified. It's insulting to true Art Deco architecture.

I will say, I do not think this is Art Deco by definition, but it does have elements that evoke that feeling, between the setbacks and the vertical lines that make it seem taller than it is.
