Seems weird that it has such large slab to slab heights. Residential buildings usually have more floors relative to office buildings of the same height, but 4.8m per floor is even more than most high end office towers. As residential, I'd expect a good 120 stories.
It looks prefab - cheap - like a match stick. Maybe if the crown had some redeeming architectural features. Appalled at the demolition of the 1929 Drake Hotel for this stack of crates - thought it would be a heritage building.
