Hotel X is hardly out of sight. It's a disaster through and through. Architecturally, it's not quite up there with 365 Church. Jury is still out on the re-imagined 401 Bay. Right now, yawn is the best description.
52 built and 25 under construction for a total of 77 towers over 150 metres.
Hotel X is the kind of crap Uptown Waterloo or downtown London would be grateful to get. As a gateway building into downtown Toronto for many, it's an embarrassment.
I'd rather be homeless than live in a condo...but I do like watching attractive ones get built...like Woodwards, 42 in Waterloo, and anything by Daoust/Saucier+Perotte/Nomade/aA/Teeple
It is nice to see this progressing. Queen's Marque really will be partly underwater, but reportedly it will be watertight and there is no chance of it floating away (at least this is what has been reported)
