agree to disagree but to me TeaHouse is one of the top 5 nicest projects under-construction currently.

That CIBC building is beautiful. When completed and the sun hitting all those angles at different times of the day. Wow

Yup sometimes great cladding usurps wacky design.

And another taller one will rise just north.

Photogs are already burning thro their digital hard drives. Fun to watch.

Toronto gets rightly criticized for too many sterile and often cheap looking high rises. The latest round of proposals are noticeably better than what we saw even 5 years ago. Hopefully when we see these nicer buildings rise those other ones will become background. I suspect they will.

Eagerly awaiting The One, Mirvish-Gehry twins, the CIBC north tower, and Union Park. There are a whole slew of shorter proposals/buildings under construction coming down the pipe too.
