I find the Churchill & Banks proposal to be just awful from an aesthetic standpoint. The building has no character and the massing has been done in a way that looks contrived and inelegant. I like that it reaches 10 stories but just can't get behind such bad design. It's disappointing that ZDS keeps churning out such crappy design work.

The Churchill & Banks proposal sells a benefit of their project "an increase in parking to the area which is currently severely under parked," really hitting home their commitment to "neighborhood activation."

I'll embrace just about any design at this point that doesn't include bricks. Enough with the bricks already! An architect made the comment one day that Providence isn't Sturbridge Village. Well said.
