I've installed a split a/c system in the electrical room here, may be installing another in a data room. Waiting on that. Pretty neat inside.

Any updates on this one? I don't really go to this part of town much these days, so curious how it's looking.

I commend Rndsqr for taking risks with design, but I can't say I'm a fan of this one. Brutalist and bunker like. It feels very unwelcoming.

Agreed, the ground level is borderline hostile!
It's not offensive enough that Vancouver-style public realm treatment can't save it. These are the steps:
  1. Building anything
  2. Put a wide, urban sidewalk in front of the thing you built, without a bunch of garbage/poles obstructing people from walking
  3. Put a bunch of trees and/or greenery in-front of the thing you built

That makes me think of what they did with the building on the site Park Point is on now. Streetview shows it in 2009. https://www.google.ca/maps/@51.0424...ldX2xTasrFgjgTzd_cdg!2e0!7i13312!8i6656?hl=en
