    This is one of the more vile projects going up now. First, the facade treatment is awkward if not downright ugly. Second, it's plopped down in what should be a protected historic district and lording itself over everything around it.

    How will they clean the gridded areas?

    I think that's substructure for a stone/precast panel

    That's disappointing. Those grids made a vast improvement.

    I doubt it. In that case, the grids would be much more regular in their spacing/variations between panels, and they would likely be rougher and less perfect in their finish.

    But the rendering does show more solid panels, so I don't know. But if that's the case, I wonder why they chose such irrational patterns for metal support structures.

    According to the architect (BKSK), the facade will have real limestone blocks.

    The rendering depicts different sized blocks arranged in an irregular pattern. Maybe that's why the grids aren't evenly spaced.

    This looks great.

    Yes, those 'grids' are what the prefabricated panels are attached to: the facade panels will be set into those large rectangular openings with the grid - and then bolted on to the grid from the inside, without marring the smooth finish of the face of the facade panels. This is a fairly 'high quality' curtain wall system: I like the way this looks, as well as how it is built. Nice building so far quality construction methods, good materials and attractive architectural design: rare.

    I will call this "Good Architecture, We Deliver"...... inside joke. LOL
