    This has to be one of the ugliest designs and aesthetic blights of a building exterior imposed on any suburb in Canberra since self-government. It is a literal translation of the slab with little to no visual relief at every level excluding the red brick second floor. Presenting as a car parking building with windows it is brutally intrusive into a key park and lakeside view and foreground vista of adjoining suburbs looking towards the Brindabella's. The minimalist design is replicated in 'mullet' style landscaping that imposes very minimal street appeal hiding the actual landscaping on the 7th floor for residents or the rear lane. This raises the point of why a Design Review Panel even exists if this is what is 'acceptable' high-quality urban design. Its value is for the residents to come rather than the existing community that has to bear the insult. Its role in the block composition highlights a streetscape of confrontation and poor visual coherence.
