Looks pretty good, almost more like an office building. Not of Lido caliber, but solid, and the street frontage looks decent. Definitely a massive improvement over what's there now.
I'll add it's the type of building that counteracts a terribly, road-oriented road, let me explain through an arbitrary scoring system. 14 Street NW is about 95% road, 5% destinations along it - one of the worst for any road except ones that are 100% road (Deerfoot, Crowchild etc.) Developments of this scale and caliber would knock it down to 60% road v. 40% destinations along this stretch. A smaller scale development wouldn't have had as positive of an impact. I hope it happens!

Not really a fan, too many things going on and it looks like it's trying too hard. Still 1000x better than what's there now!

Decent. Would look better without the red panel on the end. The grey above it connects across the east side. The red does not, it breaks therefore it does not follow the same protocol and should be better resolved. At this point though, I'll take anything without random rectangles.
I think that side will most likely be hidden if the lot beside it has a future developer smart enough to build wall to wall (lot to lot).
