Between a tad of OOF or Soft I am not sure which to blame but sure it is in need of HDR or a lesser exposure.
Then you miss something beside the view to make it more interesting. May be a person or something in foreground.

I remember having the same feeling after seeing it for the first time. But a few of my shots turned out really good, so I guess I have good memories of it.

It looks incredibly sharp to me. I think its just the negative space in front is OOF, but the bricks and the gazebo look really sharp.

I don't think I've even been to LPZ for the lights, I doo remember being underwhelmed with Brookfield in the past.
