This facade's turning out very nice. I really like the horizontal banding in the corner.

Wow! It's very sexy... and it's got a lot of presence, yet it still keeps that Vancouver look.

Keep the updates coming!

Few probably know that the Shangri-la Hotel chain is owned by a Malaysian man named Robert Kuok, family hometown in Johor Bahru! Way to go Mr Kuok, another one of his ventures into North America.
