I tried to control myself and not comment on this building, but its recent renovation really is lipstick on a pig. At least it’s occupied. A bland, mediocre building with some Post-Modernist additions that do little to hide the fact it is an architecturally underwhelming building on one of the most important intersections of the city.

It looks better at night. Otherwise… what can anyone add to your description?
Key phrase: at least it’s occupied.
That ridiculous Drury Inn cornice–OY! And of course the risible jester’s hat masquerading as a Fleur-de-lis. But, SLU, jerbs, etc…
Look mom, I made a cornice!
