the new facade shows evidence of good planning. The brick facade and new storefront treatment gives the building weight at the bottom. From the sidewalk, the emphasis will be on a three storey height, with the glass tower slightly less visible above it.
the current store fronts at street level
proposed: steel arches, new glass facades

It still looks a bit mis-matchy – like 3 buildings side by side. Besides being ugly as-….. it has always bothered me that it looked like a confused building with a triple identity crisis. Why not go with a single exterior treatment? Oh well.. I’m glad they’re doing SOMETHING with it!
