I think it looks fine. It's a big box with a few balconies. That's how most these projects look.

I'm disappointed its design has nothing to do with its name but glad this isn't the FOURTH identical looking building in that area. I am however concerned what they're going to design for the booster apartments down by the stadium though. Hopefully not a rehash of a current design.
