And Concord continues to disappoint.

What a pile of crap. Why the city council doesn't have a design board panel? They are always concerned about shadowing yet they don't have any problem allowing this monstrosity being built. And you don't add colour stripes randomly just for the sake of "add some fresh colour". Lipstick on a pig, that's what it is. Who the hell designed this stuff? Fukc Concord.

relax man, this is just the first proposal. Yes the city has a DRP, and as this is simply the initial application, it has yet to go to the DRP.

That said, its gunna be a piece of crap no matter what. Looking at these renders Concord obviously hasn't given much to P+S in terms of a budget to make a good looking tower.

Those random colours are also the public art component, similar to Concords Tango building up at the 401.

And it's Concord, so it's going to be as mind numbing as all their other buildings. If Concord would pack up and high tail it back to Vancouver it would be the best XMas pressie ever.

Where exactly is this being built?

Can someone indicate it on a map?

Public art panels!

It would just be bland and cookie cutter without that, but this "art" installation will really make it stand out. People will think it's amazing how someone actually managed to scale the walls with such a huge volume of spray paint in order to deface the buildings!

Those art panels could turn out well. Is it true they're supposed to be metal and have a lighting feature?
