ii. The elevations in the entire building complex do not seem to be coordinated with each other. The uses of architectural elements, materials, texture, finishes etc. are varied, thus do not make the complex look cohesive and complementary. Thus, it is suggested to review the elevations to make the design look harmonious.

iii. The corner with the proposed feature wall at the entrance is suggested to be enhanced with Public Art installations, appropriate landscaping etc. to improve the urban aesthetics of the surroundings and make the space inviting.
