  1. What a boring, generic, building like so many others…

  2. Still ugly as sin. Please fix the proportions on this mess.

  3. Ugly as shit. Don’t care if it’s better than the original. Providence shouldn’t settle for shit architecture just because it’s the only proposal for the land. This parcel has much greater potential. This belongs in warwick

  4. C’mon #CapitalCenterCommission & #HomewoodSuites. #ProvidenceRI deserves much better than current design. #Generic_Ugly_Boring! 🙁 (just posted via Twitter)

  5. Yes, thanks, I meant to track those down. This is a better design, the orientation of the windows makes the building read more verticle and the fat columns are gone.

    The Exchange Street facade is still not clear, but at least it is glass now and not a stauxn* wall.

    *Stauxn = Faux stone.

  6. Wow, this really is a HUGE step up from the original design. The driveway is still a big letdown, but everything else has dramatically improved. I’ll take it.

  7. David: what would you change about the driveway?
