I know this is Dunnhumby's project, and what they say goes, but I'm still extremely dissappointed. All I can say is the design better kick ass.

I am baffled. Here we have an actual, real, UNDERWAY (not fantasy) large business expansion that is building a spanking new building on an empty lot in the middle of DOWNTOWN and you are extremely disappointed? Really?

This ^

There are countless cities, including some large ones in our very own state, that would absolutely LOVE to have dunnhumby build this exact building in their downtowns and bring those jobs there.

If Dunnhumby is going to build downtown then build up not build wide. If they don't want it fine don't build downtown we can use the land for a high rise residential building.

They have a very modern, open concept workplace. No offices.

Listen everyone, I'm glad dunnhumby is here, I'm glad they're expanding at such a fast rate, and I'm glad they're building a new headquarters downtown. But, they promised to do something really bold at this site. Instead we are getting a big sprawling building taking up half a city block of valuable downtown space. So sorry, I'm dissappointed and that's just the way it is. I'm hoping the design will change my mind about this project.

I am pretty sure this is the building, the design looks a little industrial but i was expecting something more then just this building. Maybe a little more high tech but honestly it looks like it belongs in Mason somewhere...the picture is on the left side

Read that it is going to be all concrete. Hoping for something along the lines of the CAC.
