What a disgusting building. Holy is this ever out of date. It looks like this should be taken down, not built.

This building has a very dated look and dosn't look like anything that should be built in 2008. Its more 1988!

One Park Place was recently T/O and the crane came down in early January.

12/24/08


The first residents are expected to move in by March.

It certainly is better than the boring boxes surrounding it.


But it indeed could have turned out better (esp. the facade). It's still a nice postmodern 80s-resemblance

^ Not kitschy enough.


What's wrong with its roof, btw? Isn't it still going to be covered with some material?
