Overall, they've preserved a lot of what I liked about the original design, but it is getting chunkier and less elegant imo. Seeing the overall massing also brings attention to how aggressive this is as it abuts Geer Street Garden. I wish they'd been able to step back or stagger the heights a bit more to soften those edges.

Dave, sounds like this project is in fact being scaled back moderately to 6-7 stories for the lower section and 14 stories for the tower. Not sure whether that was a result of public response or they just decided that a smaller project would be more practical. Either way it will probably fit somewhat better with the surrounding neighborhood.
