To my eyes, this appears to be a very peculiar design for a building. Why the wedge-shaped building on a rectangular lot? To me that just seems like a waste of space. Traditionally, such buildings, for example the Flatiron Building in Toronto, are that shape because the wedge-shaped lot forces them into that geometry.

Also, why two towers? The space between the two towers looks to me like wasted space. Why not fill it in to produce a larger rectangular building? Indeed, if we look at the photograph of the site in Ryan's article, we see that the existing building to the left of the site is one such larger rectangular tall building. So is the building above the site. So is the building kitty-corner to the lower left. These are all far more sensible designs.
