I agree 100%.I've become numb to the unfortunate recladding of the tower, until I see the street level. Absolutely ghastly.
Personally, I can even live with the rest of the tower. I'm not a fan, but I don't find it as offensive as others.
But the base ... omg ... the base.
It looks like what you'd see on the back side of a building where they load shipping etc.
They must be aware of how bad that portion is and that it didn't pan out how they anticipated ... maybe? I can see a change to the base in coming years, but maybe I'm being naiive.
