Say what you will about the design and possibly the brutalism of it, the cladding looks durable and rock solid.  

I was mostly just being a contrarian. It's not too ugly just boring.

The Ellis is perhaps the most hideous highrise built in America this millennium. It is an embarrassment for the city of Charlotte and needs to be razed. 

The Soviet Union wouldn't have allowed such horrible architecture.

I really despise it too, but must tread delicately on this thread or you'll be absurdly accused of working for a competitor apartment developer/manager.

I'm actually floored that it's 47% leased.  I'm staying focused on the fact that it's new bodies in uptown, and sounds like the Homewood Suites is back on track to visually offset at least a corner of the Ellis.

It is truly a terrible thing to ask for "quality" architecture from developers these days. The Ellis would've looked dated in 1980. Buildings like this are completely devoid of any architectural character and are simply not worth saving. 30 years from now this building might be razed for a new development simply because nobody cares about it. Just look at JPM'S new office in NYC. They tore down a building only 60 years old to build a new tower. People simply do not care about poorly designed Buildings, and the Ellis is simply a monstrosity.
