With this building almost complete, it is about time for 1 Bloor to get some action started.

Uptown is being met with a bit of slight right now.. but down the road the Yorkville Skyline will be better off because of it. Nice style and contrast to the other towers assembled in the area at Yonge and Bloor. Might not be a classic but more than adequate for the job.

Creates a nice little street wall, so it's got that going for it.

I was at Manulife Tower yesterday, and I must say this tower looks a lot better than we give it credit for on the net.

If only they had clad this tower in that black granite from top to bottom. I'd be easily one of the best looking buildings in the country.

I liked Uptown from its inception, but they really missed the mark with the top. It barely resembles what they portrayed in the render.

i can't even recall an all black-granite tower, but yeah, that would stand out, maybe even too much! almost weird!
