I’ll never forget passing this building on my daily commute and when it was marked for demolition someone wrote in big letters on the window “Tempus Fugit”. Pretty poignant. By the way, what business was in here?

Mr. Tessier looks a tad nervous in that second photo. Can't blame him. I would be too if I were planning to open a hotel in this COVID environment.

The design is extremely rigid. The first thought when I saw it was offsetting. Not a warm design unfortunately.  

It's very suburban office park and bland, especially for the W brand.

It reminds me of the new LendingTree building in Charlotte.

Looks similar. Hopefully, the W will have better street activation, but I agree it's pretty uninspiring. Something will eventually go up on the lot across 12th Avenue, and we can look forward to it getting lost in the weeds. There is a strangely old-looking, brand new building next door to the W and a really cool pocket park between them. I'm afraid with suburban offices, it's harder to get poor architecture to blend in. That's what Cool Springs is for.

Ugh, I wish they would've at least put up some LED bands between floors to break up to monotony. That design is only okay if they had done like the Omni in downtown Dallas that becomes a showcase display at night.

Dallas Omni’s LED spectacle comes at a high cost. That Omni was funded by the city and they are responsible for the hundreds of millions in construction costs. Until they are able to sell it, if ever, it looks like a very bad deal for the taxpayers of the city. But it sure is impressive.
