Looks a bit like a Cesar Pelli inspiration, but I really like it.

That picture is rather old actually. The glass is almost completely done.

I have mixed feelings about the multi-color glass cladding. I fear it may make the building look "busy" and "showy" ...

... what do you think?

I love it.

It reminds me of the Harmon at city center in Las Vegas.

That is a really impressive shot IE--I imagine the reflection of the lights to be like little angels and how fitting. The building came out better than the renderings. I love the facade and the shape of this one. A perfect new addition for the Los Angeles skyline.

Almost six months ago I posted my trepidation about the use of different colored glass ... I was afraid the overall impression would make the building gaudy or ostentatious.

My fears were unfounded. The building looks great!
