Re: Official: Capitol District

I love the overall idea and design of the space, but I agree I wish the buildings were more visually appealing. The Marriott looks nice but it even was originally shown to have approx 15 floors with a high peak. Instead we end up with a 12 floor rectangular shaped building.
