Are you kidding me? Aside from stucco, I'm not sure you can put a worse combination of elements into the Pacific Northwest climate. Between the flat surfaces and the exposed wood, concrete, and metal, that is going to be a runny mess of algae, rust, and moss in twenty years. Of course, you probably notice that quite as much as the vinyl windows that are going to crumble from oxidation in the same timespan. Bad architecture that fails to consider context... ugh.

Is parking provided?
