I love this development but think I agree about the stonework. I like the idea, but it does seem a bit much on the corners. Looks like the building blew up and they pieced it back together. Very handsome buildings though. And that tower! 

LOL.... Super-glued back together.

It's a handsome building/complex. I do think there is a little too much of the stonework at the corners. A bit distracting.

I agree, there is a lot of things going on that seem way over done.  The dorms further east on Broadway seem much more appropriate and classy, these seem almost gaudy.

I love the stone/brick work, it adds an exuberant Victorian feel to what otherwise felt like a dull and timid psuedo-Oxbridge imitation.  I wonder if/hope we're moving back into an era of liberally applied ornamentation-we're definitely seeing some lovely brickwork on several new buildings.  I especially like the irregular veins of stone on the sides.
