Coming from the East on the 408 it has a big impact on the skyline. Next time I'm not driving Ill try to snap a pic.

Never noticed how wide this building really is.
I understand now why it's not taller.

I did.

That's always been my main issue with it, along with the odd looking protrusion of the bottom half as seen from the north and south.

Standard Orlando building.

The skinny part should be taller. The massing of the building seems odd at the moment. It has very wide base.

Nice shots. From the 1st  and 3rd photo the massing looks really good... unfortunately from other perspectives she's a bit chubby.

Thanks for the photos...

good god this building needs a diet...

At least this building is taller than it is wide. It's anorexic compared to Modera.

I think it would be more accurate to say it's the "length" of the building that is too long in proportion to it's height, or vice versa, as in the height is too short in proportion to it's length.

Length being the north-south dimension.

Eeeek! Sounds too much like a word problem. I’m having nightmares about jr. high all over again *wonders if there’s still any Clearasil around here after all these years*

Exactly. Splitting hairs...

Buildings, like everything else in the physical world, have three dimensions.

Height, Length  & Width.

So re: CSP, which is which?

Height is obvious, but which way is Length and which way is Width?

Would help to know when discussing them, I would think.

I believe the longer north/south dimension would be the length.

No big deal and not really "hair splitting" afaic.

I think the H/L/W comment is fair.  It is a fairly universal way of describing buildings.

Does this mean I have to take a math class at my advanced age to keep up with UP now? My right-brained self may never survive!

I think there’s some ambiguity. If you are looking at a building from its front door, and describing it based on this, it may not be of a perfect N/S/E/W orientation. 

Therefore, when someone describes the “width” of this building as seen from its “front side”, the width of the building is the N/S orientation.

This building is an odd duck, for sure.

From some angles it looks slender and tall, while from other angles it looks like a glass stump.

I will say that to me anyway, it looks good from I-4, and that's the most important angle afaic.

A little off topic but I feel this way in general towards Orlando’s whole skyline.  When coming in from the north on I-4, the skyline has an illusion of being taller and more dense because of how so many of the dominate buildings have this same “skinny side” orientation and are closer together from east and west of each other. (Court house, suntrust, the vue, BOA, solaire and now this one). Then, when coming in from the east, on 408, you see these same buildings but they are all spaced out from north and south of each other, and are all wide and shorter looking. 

100% agreed.
