There's not a whole lot of difference between living in a glass condo and a precast condo as the majority of glass condos are spandrel glass condos.

Exactly. Although even if you nixed all that stuff it still wouldn't be as good as people make it out to be. I understand people are sick of glass but, for me, design and quality matters more than concrete or glass. I couldn't care less if there are siblings or even twins elsewhere in the city either. Being different is the most overrated attribute on these forums as different rarely equates to better.

Both are mediocre but, Uptown's choices are so much better than this one; actual stepbacks, concrete to the top, minimal decoration. Uptown's podium, on the other hand, reflects the decoration that always tends to lean towards tacky.

Never knew E Condos was so high on this list, apparently at #13....
anyway, here's a quick update on the soon-off-the-list EY Tower (#17)contrasting with a pre-war building, and a look at E Condos, along with a look at #11, 88 Scott:

Not for these photos. These are the same generic cell phone photos I've been posting randomly for over a year , not even off my actual camera.

Says you Oh Great One! And what's wrong with the Turn? Ya it's been done over and over again and a twist is no longer a unique design but it's not that bad.

Your time of the month again?

Nice shot! I love that tower... I actually wished 88 Scott was a bit taller and that the precast when up a little higher.
