    The building has a roof height, and stands of a total 21-story residential. The design stood as beautiful exterior appearance, now the property was surpassed vehicle on street: Thanks to Michael Young.

  2. Very nice.

  3. A box with some character, ok.

  4. The proportion of the towers to the base feels odd. I think this would have been a stronger design if one of the towers was 4 white-frames tall instead of having both be 3 white-frames tall.

    Great, 660 more cars for area traffic.

  6. Looks like a prison.

  7. Has anyone bothered to review the floor plans: while most are generic, many of the apartments have bedrooms (at luxury prices) where one is unable to WALK AROUND the bed, ie, no space for a bed in the bedroom. One apt plan shows the sofa in the middle of the living room facing a wall – it’s amateurish or the care and concern of plans is given to interns who don’t understand scale and approved by developers who don’t care about the quality of the habitation.
