Looks good but there's nothing that makes it really stand out.

My favorite in Atlanta. I was mesmerized by this building. I have to give it a 10, just because it's so beautiful...

Here are some of the pics I took of Promenade II:

7 The enormous step design make this building look shorter than it really is... and I would prefer a more consistant facade. Spire looks cheap. But it's an ok building.

Nice building but it is too dark which makes the detailing allmost invisible. 7.5 though

6.9

Details are certainly lost. Also, the building looks ridiculously and unproportionately fat thanks to the otherwise nice setbacks. It tapers off too soon at the apex.

The spire doesn't fit the rest of the building in my opinion.
