Agreed. Seems like a missed opportunity. Decent street-level experience though.

I also hate the huge parking lot in front of the grocery store. Couldn't they have put that underground and added some more housing?
The weird structure of 1 and 2 INK is because National Development reused the foundation of the old Herald building (they cheaped out on the start of the site). So that restricted the size of the buildings and created a lot of the layout artifacts.

I didnt get a pic because it was dark but theyre on the 8th floor now. Moving along nicely. Its right at roof height of its glass ink block neighbor. Pretty crazy with this and the rest of the buildings going up along the pike how much its changed in a short time along this stretch.
