Book Cover Design Critique

I am working on a leasing brochure for a new development for a client and wanted your guys opinion on the design, and also the logo, designed that also.

The right side are tabs that each page is going to be cut to align with the top or bottom page. Finished size is going to be 8.5 x 14 on a heavy card stock with some vellum used for a touch of class.



Larger Size HERE

*UPDATE* From Blue Velvet's suggestion, Thank You, better?

First impression: I find the bottom (colour) illustration a little large on the page... maybe take it down to 90-95% of that placed size just to give a little air around it? Just feels a little cramped at the mo.

Assuming that is just the cover and flaps (and not the back also), I think it would be an idea to reduce 'The Plaza Mall of Georgia' to just one appearance. I find seeing it written 3 times is slightly overkilling it, when just once would do.

Nice but one thing is concerning me. If the cover is cropped at the color bars then the type + rules are too close to the outside edges. If there is any play in the trimming the thin bar at the bottom going to look real bad.
