Yeah, problem is that it's the one of two skyscrapers in the immediate area so it stands out in a really blah way. Also because that area of town is looking really sketchy atm. Once the arena district is built around it, it'll look like "the old school backdrop in a modern city" thing that most major cities have in their downtowns.

The Telus building though… I dunno, it's at the forefront of the skyline so it pretty much defines the city's downtown skyline along with the Convention Centre, Coast Plaza hotel, and part of Canada Place.
