First reaction, that looks kind of cool. Second reaction, we should avoid building all black towers cause climate change. Third reaction, hope that plaza will include retail and terraces AND not be turned into a parking lot late in the game.

Devil's advocate here but how would anyone go to that plaza. These towers are literally at the edge of the built up area, no way it gets enough foot traffic without parking. I like this building design but I don't think it's going to be some sort of urbanist walking utopia out there.

That's a good point. Would need a bridge to Trim. Would also be important to improve (or just add cause they don't exist) walking and cycling links between the station and the beach + linking the Brigil projects and the college.
 
This one is more detailed. More earth coloured over black. I like it better.
