    The old design was better, but I’m still excited for the expansion to our skyline 🙂

      Agree with you @586972ef93c22accaa801de3418fccba:disqus  – just note that there are no final renders of how Portside will look. Hopefully we’ll get a new (and maybe more exciting) update at the event next week.
