That style would've also worked for Selby, but that could easily be achieved with lighter/cheaper cladding. I prefer the iron spot brick the way it is, with its weightiness.

I'm fine with it to. It's just nice to have a building that's not all glass for a change.

Should look decent from that angle once the glass starts making it's way up the balcony.

The fact the tower is being built next to Karma, just accentuates its visual predicament.

It is however rising fast.

It's as if they didn't even try to make that one look good.

Actually the way the balcony cladding is designed, this is probably one of the better buildings on the list when complete.

Yea....once the balcony cladding gets it's way up the tower....it should look fairly good. The white spandrel bits are unfortunate but it doesn't compromise the design.

Nothing is working. The black glazing is too much. The balcony design is not enough. It's needed to be stronger; black and less transparent. The spandrel panels behind the balcony design needed to blend in with the glass too. They couldn't have chosen a worst colour with light grey. The concept isn't bad. The execution is just awful. Bad news if this is one of the better buildings in the list.

100% agree. It should look much more interesting and work well as more balcony glass goes up.

Updates....from today

Was out and about today....
26. The Selby 165.6m / 543ft
[IMG]TJ264100 by Josh Kenn Photographics, on Flickr[/IMG]
Taken with Rosedale on Bloor's site in the foreground
[IMG]TJ264092 by Josh Kenn Photographics, on Flickr[/IMG]
I took a photo of the exact same perspective 17 months ago....its changed a lot, partly with Selby:
[IMG]TJ264103 by Josh Kenn Photographics, on Flickr[/IMG]
[IMG]TJ264087 by Josh Kenn Photographics, on Flickr[/IMG]
Rising above the concrete mass that is Bloor from almost Sherbourne to Mt. Pleasant

[IMG]TJ264108 by Josh Kenn Photographics, on Flickr[/IMG]
I was incredibly surprised to see how MASSIVE this thing looks from just along Mt. Pleasant north of Crescent road..
[IMG]TJ264067 by Josh Kenn Photographics, on Flickr[/IMG]
Just a bit of concept work...
[IMG]TJ264104 by Josh Kenn Photographics, on Flickr[/IMG]
22. Casa III 179.6m / 589ft
Centre of frame...
[IMG]TJ264060 by Josh Kenn Photographics, on Flickr[/IMG]
Just on the left
[IMG]TJ264076 by Josh Kenn Photographics, on Flickr[/IMG]
12. E Condos 194.4m / 638ft
The Yonge Eglinton Centre towers are barely visible from this angle now...
[IMG]TJ264037 by Josh Kenn Photographics, on Flickr[/IMG]
Decided to go back to my original angle to update this project:

Thanks for the update.

I have not ventured that far east to see that tower.

Ok this picture really helps sell how the tower will look. I was getting a little worried but this looks pretty sharp.

Re:E Condos

The balcony cladding only looks good from a parallel angle. (http://www.skyscraperpage.com/forum/...postcount=8743 pic #8)Otherwise, it looks pretty bad head on in these photos.


I haven't seen it in person.
