I agree with variety. I also think amongst each style there is also good and bad. People should really just take each building individually, in my opinion.
There are a couple of new, old style looking buildings in that area that are quite nice. There are also a couple of nice, new, modern looking buildings (like 18 Yorkville, I think) too.
I haven't been in the neighbourhood in a while...over the winter, I guess, but last time I was there, standing right beside it, I thought the base of the Chrystal Blu building was quite ugly. The strange missing chunks of concrete with blue crystal behind it looked incredibly tacky to me.
To me, it's something that seemed like a cool idea to someone....for some reason, but in reality just looks odd and phony.
Whatever, I still love the density and look forward to further developments in the area.
I also will start taking some pictures to add to the forum....why not, eh?
