The Metropolitan and The Encore are handsome buildings with elegant scalar elements and a balanced palate of materials. This proposed design lacks any of that. It is a soulless reflective glass object that belongs in L A or Houston. It is a tragedy that after so many decent well proportioned and articulated designs across the Pearl, the biggest building in the whole end of town will be this half-baked seemingly-unfinished cartoon.
