The north and south sides look decent with alternating stripes of glass and spandrel, but the East and West?! Woooof! Any chance the developer looks at this and decides to redo the facade?

Good god that's bad. Why not just make it all vision glass? The tower is 60% freakin spandrel!

If I had to guess I would say it's because the spandrel is generally better insulation, and this being a rental tower, maybe they are trying to scrimp every cent they can. Personally, I think they would be better off going with more glass and charging an extra $35.00/month. Oner thing the tower has going for it is great views.

Looks like there was a carbon monoxide leak on this site this morning, site shut down and evacuated, 5 people taken to hospital. Hope everyone is alright!
