Still don't know how they got away with that ugly-ass non-screened garage facing I-4. (or the "retail" portion). 

I would imagine it's got to do with the color scheme and pattern, etc. 

If it was just bare concrete, they likely wouldn't have gotten away with it.

Personally, I don't think it's really bad looking. 

Not awesome, but not terrible either.

Being that this was built in a very visible area, there's no way this should have been less than 15-stories IMO. 

LOL.  My general rule of thumb with almost every project I've seen in this stinkin' town, has been "um...if this were only five stories taller..."

And it's the same team that totally hid the garage on the Lakehouse project.  I'm still not really sure where the Lakehouse garage is.  This project is awesome but the I-4 side is a real letdown.

wasn't there a rule on this that CitiTower had to abide by?  Maybe it's the fronting street that is key...

Yes, it is part of the ARB guidelines. They typically can't do an unscreened garage without a variance and other things such as ground floor street level windows and aesthetic treatments. The ARB let this project pass somehow without the GF and Garage requirements, despite being much stricter with other developments. (There was a big kerfuffle about them claiming their work-out room was GF space IIRC).
