That building is literally the worst thing I've seen constructed anywhere in my adult life. It looks like Legos.
Yes, you are probably right. Unfortunately, this one has high visibility too. For out-of-town baseball fans watching games on TV, this has just become the most visible building in our city.

The parking garage needs to be painted, or maybe one of the environmental green walls like between the IBX and 1919 Market buildings. Fortunately, the building itself was placed to the far east side of the lot so as not to block out the skyline.

I would say -- although the building sucks, I hope the hotel is packed and a success. If you are a baseball fan, we will notice how the real estate along the outside/outfield portion of stadiums in DC, St. Louis (same owners, Cordish/Live! as here), Baltimore, and San Diego have drastically changed over the last decade. Granted, their ballparks are a lot closer to or in fact within downtown areas, but if this complex is a success, and finally leads to greater development at the Sports Complex it is a win.

Here is Nationals Park in DC ... literally none of those buildings existed 10 years ago:

Better looking buildings maybe, but putting this in the sports complex always made the most sense. But yea, the hotel is maybe the worst looking building I've seen in my life?

I do think it will do well though and add vibrancy to a desolate area, which is nice.

Also on the plus side, the facade looks so incredibly cheap they'll hopefully have to reskin it at some point. Doesn't exactly look like those panels are in for the long haul.
