I'd say this place has a really positive impact at night when the lights are on in the units. From some angles around town I'm actually surprised how much light you can see. Maybe ample glass coverage isn't a thing of the past after all. Even on the north side of the building where windows are fewer, there would nevertheless seem to be a fair bit of vision glass.
Final verdict: if they had dialed down the excessive use of green panels and mixed it up a bit with a more interesting flavour of panel or some other cladding... methinks this building would be a genuine standout. It's a nifty building, regardless. But I'm saying it missed being exceptionally nifty by not very much at all. Methinks 2 or 3 additional stories also would have made the angled edge seem a bit more dramatic.
Perhaps in 10 or 20 years when The Wedge is finally ready for occupancy, it will really add some interesting character to the neighbourhood.
I do agree that, like many of Victoria's junior high rises, 15 floors here seems a bit under height.
