The like option was a recent addition so I was on a stupid number of posts when I got my first like anyway

It`s funny, there`s always a high aesthetic standard (or should that be ass-ethetic) with the people in these renders.

I mean, where are the homeless? Where are the hoodies? The obese?

From the angles shown here, I am liking this more than No. 2. That slight concave in the elevations is an example of a 'visual moment' that I was on about in the other thread, and I think that's a nice touch to break up the rhythm of all those vertical fins. Also I like the clear definition between the ground floor and the upper floors - it appears to interact a lot better at street level as a result.

There's still a slightly anonymous feel to it but I think it's good enough.

Yep , f'ck likes to post ratio. Look at poor Erebus above! Just because he was here way before and has been away since they've been introduced.

I never noticed until you said, but now you have it's obvious; you're right though, it does help and breaks up the monotony slightly.

I think its perfectly fine. Too many 'statement' buildings defeat the object.

These 2 proposals will fit nicely next to the old buildings but I hope the others will be taller.
