I like the building's curved shape like you mentioned.

If you want to lighten the bottom, adjust the levels or curves in their own layer until the shadwo at the bottom is where you want it. Then mask out the top so that it blends back in with the lightened shadow.

The building directly in front is a bit overexposed. I'd probably meter to avoid such hot spots.

I'd probably also try position myself to avoid that half cut-off sign on the left.

If you had the chance, coming back at a different time of day might be a better solution.

I suppose you are the cameras limits here. I like the effect though. As above maybe levels can sort it out a little
