People hate spandrel glass.  People hate EIFS.  People hate red brick.  People hate concrete.  People hate blue-tinted glass.

It really is hard to keep everyone happy! Smile

Wow, I don't hate spandrel. Just don't over use it, just like everything else. In moderate amounts is nice, in excess it's a problem.

The podium looks a bit off compared to the rest of the building, but even with that personal opinion, it's a nice project.
