Nice to see that those wispy bands going up the side aren't just artistic embellishments, but structural features. The podium's north face seems to have a strong mirror effect. Is that the Four Season's courtyard being reflected?

Nice looking proposals. Stating the obvious, but there's a lot of density planned and under construction for this area. Will be a very noticeable change to the skyline when driving down the DVP in a few years.

Drawing has been made for the taller tower: http://skyscraperpage.com/cities/?buildingID=7006
When more detailed renders are released I will update the drawing.

I really want this to be approved, it would definetly improve the skyline. And soon we'll have to look at the skyline from the east or west!

From the DRP (Design Review Panel) meeting – March 18th, 2014.

http://www1.toronto.ca/City%20Of%20T...rch%202014.pdf

37 Yorkville Avenue
Wallman Architects
Minto Group
Rezoning Application
2 towers – 55 and 69 storeys

Positives
- the small parkette
- pedestrian mews access to the firehall
- setbacks on 37 Yorkville seem to be working
- one Member did not have an issue with the
proposed density

Problems:
- Members expressed significant concern with the
height and scale of the base building
o it feels very massive from the perspective of a
pedestrian
o the street is only 11-metres wide
o the scale and height doesn’t align with
planning and urban design policy objectives
- the tower floor plates are too large (beyond the
recommended maximum)

Recommended Refinements:
- reduce the tower floor plates
- the base building height should come down to be
more in scale with the street, and representative of
well—established policy/public realm objectives
- study the disposition of the two towers, to alleviate
issues of overlook
- determine if parking requirements can be further
relaxed, to help lower the base even further

What a steaming pile of crap.

Height should not be of concern in this area.

It will be such a tragedy if this junk gets approved.

Doesn't look all that bad. I do like the black/white colour variations - hopefully it'll be black curtainwall or some sort of hybrid system. This one could turn out to look nice!

New heights:

The 62-storey tower would be 215 metres or 706 feet, and the 40-storey tower would be 142.5 metres or 468 feet tall.

Oh my God. The design was fine the way it was. Why in anyone's right mind would they turn a masterpiece into

It's a shame too, I really loved the crown and the little white (structural) streamers/curtainwall.

Considering how rarely real life mimics renders it may be for the best they've gone with a more conservative design. I suspect those metal streamer things could have been messed up pretty badly if they cut corners.
