This is looking pretty forgettable, honestly. I wish they'd go with brick and not not-brick that looks like brick on the podium.

So, quickly, the scorecard reads 2 major losses in this update:

1) lost the cool colored orange-redish vertical stripes on the massive body
2) lost significant 3-D detailing and multi-varied depths on the podium first 3-4 level windows

Screw the updates and the crappy humans who made them.

A mesh of 8/16 & 9/13 would look alot better.

The first 4 floors of 8/16 with the rest above like 9/13.
I like that - - although I still miss the orange/red vertical of the 8/16 previous render. The 1st 4 stories of the platform in the 8/16 is clearly better and more detailed (with excellent depth). I do like the dark borders around the top of the 9/13 - that's sharp. If they could meld the two as you suggest, I'd be happy with that (just also with the orange/red verticals).

This is the latest design:

Dark verticals were added since the 9/13 meeting.
Ah thank you. DZ’s 3 comparable only showed up to 9/13. This update def benefits from the dark verticals but it now took out the dark borders around the upper multi floor box which were nice. This development seems a story of renders that go 2 steps forward - 2 steps back with each update.
