It fits in well with the area which has historical buildings nearby. Modern, but with a style that compliments that. Also, while the Raymond Block has a great podium, the section above doesn't integrate with it as well as this. After initial reservations, I have come to really like what they have done here.'Beautiful' is a stretch in my eyes (I reserve that descriptor for such buildings as the Legislature, Brighton Block and even Encore) , but I would easily say it is 'slick' and Old Strathcona's most attractive modern, mixed-use infill (so far).
