The previous design, which was essentially a 1 Bloor clone was much more aesthetically pleasing.
It's far better than 90% of the condos that get proposed. Pinnacle, Maple Leaf Square, City Place, Festival Tower, Infinity, Charlie, etc. are bland. This is boxy, but it's a vast improvement on the typical all glass condo we're used to getting. If I have to see one more building like that I'll throw up.

2221 Yonge? Now that's bland. This one has colour, visual interest, and looks like it belongs in a city centre. The others look like they belong in Mississauga.
