its not orange!
It is more beige and has what looks like a bit of a tumbled texture (could be wrong), with the window design and the brick i think will look really good! IMO will be the podium we can point to as an example large block tower development with a quality pedestian realm and scale for the podium.

There is one thing that caught my eye, and I maybe wrong. Anyone correct me if that is the case. What I really liked about the towers as shown in the renderings was the volumetric break up of the tower mass. There were clear separations around 6th and ninth floors, (or so), as well as higher, and as well as a more pronounced vertical recess. That doesn't seem to be the case as built. It appears glazing was installed at what appeared to be open out door areas in the renderings. It sort of "kind of" takes away from the articulation of the towers IMHO.

I went back to look at the renderings again. I think they show those sections as glazed and not recessed. However, I agree that renderings exaggerated the effect of the different glazing on those sections. All in all, especially compared to other recent examples of rendering misinformation, this seems pretty minor.
