It's definetly nice to see this area intensifying but the design is generic and well, as cheap as the developer could manage (is there even an actual architect involved? lol) I'm happy they're saving the old industrial buildings though and the podium seems to be the perfect scale.

Proposals are weird sometimes. Sometimes we have proposals hitting the market right away, and some may hang around for years before being released to the public. This one hasn't been approved by the city yet. With the supply of condos in the Entertainment District being so saturated, a lot of projects are on the market for a year or two before construction starts. I think realistically, this may be held back and be part of the next wave of developments.

Finally, we get word of what this one will look like!

Thanx, knowing I didn't start this thread in vein.

Each time I see this design it grows on me. It certainly is different from the 'Toronto norm'. And potentially could become a very iconic building on the skyline if done right.

"If done right" is the key phrase. Based on the rendering above, it reminds me of that appalling "elephant" building in Bangkok.

I sure hope they don't actually put that huge red W on top of it. Talk about ugly! Not as bad as the elephant, but still...

Any news with this proposal? I really hope it's not approved, or atleast there's a redesign. Talk about ugly, but not as much as the India thing. Just, those boxes I swear.
