I don’t hate it but it looks like anything you’d see in Austin, Charlotte, Nashville these days (and leads the mind to thinking about those places, at least for me, over Boston or a city in the NE).

I'm still intensely curious about what's going on with the crown. That they started construction of it, then removed it completely, and since then (a relatively long time by now) have made no moves to resume building it makes me wonder if something fundamentally amiss with the design was discovered -- and, if so, what the amended version will look like.

I like the way the horizontal lines of the Hancock reflect off its facade. I think that makes it look unique even in comparison to other contemporary, glass blocks.
