Nope. They are 3/4 up the side now and it is the same pattern/same colors.

If this is meant to be "camouflage" it is doing a very poor job of hiding the building!

I kinda wish they did this on the walls of the Hub's North Station - T pedestrian tunnel.

Perhaps it has yet to be fitted with rings of lime/orange LEDs that will be lit for the first week and then ... never again (just like Zinc)!

The idea behind 'dazzle' was to visually disrupt the massing. As for glass, if this is built out to the property line, then one would have to secure and pay for an easement from the abutting owner to allow for maintenance and periodic cleaning of a grungy glass facade.

That said, I might have substituted a palette of reds, grays, and yellows for the blues and greens.

The alternative (and more visually prominent) is to do what was done at 45 Province.



pixelated winter camo.

The blank wall at 45 Province does not front an adjacent lot. It fronts a street.
