I agree that Karma turned out quite nice, and it's a shame that YC will block it's presence.

Also, let's all remember that ugliness (and it's opposite, beauty) is in the eye of the beholder.

Perhaps the 2 combined will be known in the future as "Beauty and the Beast"...

That's for complex living things. Architecture is only skin deep. That's just an excuse for the acceptance of a real estate speculator's indifference or, much worse, someone's acceptance of the poor execution of the design with YC.

You're not an architect, are you? Architecture, like any art form, is far from skin deep.

Context. It's a literal reference to the cladding used on YC. There's absolutely nothing good to be found in it.

YC would look goofy even if it was entirely clad in curtainwall

The guys behind E Condos are just about done on the pool level that sticks out....here's a pic I took yesterday of the rental tower (Left of this pic is the site of 150 Redpath....38 floors of condos..sheesh):

LOL. The same fanboys will be saying "it's too late to complain" by that time. How convenient

Not sure what you're insinuating there...

I'll condense a number of previous posts to make things easier for everyone to understand. I like YC Condos, unlike the vast majority here. I don't think it will be such a disaster, like almost everyone else seems to believe. I think it will be a positive addition to the skyline, even though nobody else has said so.

After having thrown out my opinion on this matter, I still say that far too many people here state their opinion about how various towers look (and also how they WILL LOOK WHEN THEY HAVE BEEN COMPLETED) when the tower is only partially constructed...

I just did it myself now. That is why I dislike saying how good or bad a tower under construction really looks... the end result is still just a guess at that point...
