^That pic shows why I like Central Station over many other mega developments. The great variety of styles and sizes resemble how a real neighborhood would develop instead of just every glass and steel tower being the same height.

I think the scale and size are right for the area. Also love the mix of styles.

I agree. Although there was a lot of crap especially in the beginning, the variety of styles makes for a far more interesting "mega development" than if all the towers were basically the same shape, height, with the same materials. It will hopefully age better than a lot of similar mega projects around the world.

Great photos by pherek on SSP:
