An EV Grieve reader noticed that the sidewalk shed has come down from Avenue B's Copper Building. So how's that Stephen B. Jacobs Group-designed facade measure up to what was promised? (Which would be copper-colored aluminum panels.) Our verdict: the exterior looks a little more brown than copper. But EV Grieve has a few more photos of the building looking lighter, so maybe the above shot was taken at a particularly un-coppery time of day. Otherwise, rendering and reality match pretty well?except that Stuy Town hasn't actually been destroyed and replaced with an office tower straight from downtown Dallas.
