I think its safe to say with those odd teeny windows the South facade is going to be butt ugly.

Wow, what tiny windows... Isn't the whole point of high-rise living having a wall of glass to look out over the city?

The side units on the north and south DO have a large plate-glass window. It's on the west half of the south facade. The small windows reflect the interior uses of that space, e.g. bathrooms and closets.

I don't know about you, but I really don't need a skyline view while I'm on the can.

Overall this is not going to be a nice lookin tower with the S. and N facades, but you can usually figure out which devolopments are not the best architectually, when the devoloper will only release water color renderings

Excellent shots of Avenue East, Retro. That isn't the easiest one to photograph.
