Pretty much the housing projects you'd see in communist countries like the Soviet Union. Grey, bland, "efficient", concrete buildings made to house lots of poeple. All functionality, no beauty

Agreed. I think the Orion is a beautiful building. Sleek and sophisticated.

I love the Orion.
It has that office tower look, yet it is a residential condo offering the best views.

If I hit the lottery, I wouldn't hesitate to snatch up one of those condos and Carlos would be welcome anytime!
