Yikes. That charming streetscape deserves a far better terminating vista than that clumsy brute. Its a shame.

It's just a rendering. 40 Bond was built with an entirely different budget. It's highly unlikely the spandrel glass interpretation for 60 Colborne will turn out as good.

So you are telling Montreal forumers they better not voice any negative opinion about one "attraction" in Toronto and then proceed to voice your negative opinion about a Montreal "attraction". Makes sense.

If it weren't for the fact that Dundas Square is the shittiest, ugliest, loserest square known to Mankind - and was purposely built as such - you'd have a point.

Otherwise..

And where exactly is this mysterious second ferris wheel located?

I won't defend the tourist wheel, let alone pay 345$ to hop on for a ride.

But I'll be damned if I'll deprive myself of the joy of trashing Dumbass Square. Perhaps the only place in Toronto (Old City) I vehemently dislike.

Also, aside from SSP, I've never met a single Torontonian who liked that. Like, try finding a New Yorker who actually likes Times Square. Same thing.
