I like boxes in general, just not this proposal in its current design.
As for the Gherkin, I would love to see something like that in Toronto. I think the Gherkin would work in Toronto as it would match Royal Bank and ScotiaPlaza in being different from the "standard box", but also different in look to each other. I'm not a huge fan of the Shard, other than its height, but again wouldn't object to it being transplanted into Toronto.
