developers and architects in Canada don't know how to deal with boxes. they build a lot of boxes which are hideous.

Don't be a masochist. I was talking about this building in particular, or do you think this building is also hideous?

Are you kidding? If there's one place that knows how to build a quality box, it's Toronto.

Exactly, though I have had it with the homogeneous, banal blue-glass and green-glass buildings. Everything is done on-the-cheap.

all these boxes look the same, like some scattered or lost children of some boxy looking parents.

They only look the same to the uninformed eye.

1 Yorkville looks nothing like any other project. 460 Yonge (Y&C) looks nothing like any other project. 1 Bloor looks nothing like any other project. The list goes on. What are you trying to get at?

I'm sure he meant to write that many of them look samey. Cityplace, for example. No creativity at work. We're now beginning to see more variety.

Cityplace's architecture from block to block is different which reflects the various firms involved. Quality in materials is suspect though.

There's more to it than a silhouette and colour.

It looks thinner, or taller, than the renders.

^ I agree it is thinner and taller and one more thing that the pattern is not as prominent as it was in renders.

I believe one of the DRP's recommendations was to make the floorplate smaller in exchange for a height increase. I would suspect Bazis took this into consideration. We should see this one over 60 stories eventually.

What I find pretty interesting about the project is the lounge/pool/spa area on top of the heritage buildings.
