Definitely looks like they took a puzzle piece off of the Aqua lego model. But I'll take it over a parking lot.

Maybe if the entire side of the building had balconies, but right now it looks like someone took a giant bite off the this tower.

I was just wondering what were the plans or any inside info. I'm pretty sure every project "proposed" there is dead.

With EMME just completed on the same block you have already seen an influx of new retail in the area, particularly on lake. This would go a long way helping continue that momentum.

it would look better if the non terraced floors were similar in count to the terraced ones, like this


(not necessarily that tall, that's just to illustrate my point)

The rendering is pretty bad. It's actually just screenshots of the 3d Sketchup model. But even if it was fully rendered out nicely it would still just look like Toronto filler.

I don't mind it that much because it's pure filler, but yeah it looks like a genetic mutation of three buildings

^^ Yeah, there's so many empty lots in that area, especially north of it, that I could stand a couple clunkers to fill in and spread more higrises westward. Im not necessarily saying that this one will turn out to be a clunker if built but you get what im saying.
Fill-in, Fill-in, Fill-in.

The parking podium makes it a clunker.

Not my favorite. Thinking there's a chance that this one slips by with as-of-right zoning like Emme?
