I'm obviously in the minority as I like them. most other locations I probably wouldn't but that location needs something tall and slender, and as for the details i don't care much, most of the towers will be blocked out. For me they full fill the need of adding a ton load of people into the core, and retail at the street.

I was just excited to see some residential units in the heart of downtown, looks like we're going to have to wait a bit longer

That area needs development so badly. I'll wait a bit longer if it's more attractive though. I didn't find the twins as ugly as the original triplets.

I understand branding apartments buildings the same. I don't understand how "hat" became the choice. Someone like hats?

I've heard one of the Cidex staff describe it as such: The hat is the final piece of the outfit, put on to tie everything together. These buildings are like that for the city. Plus, it looks like the buildings are sometimes wearing a hat, (think EV and 10th Ave).

You can see the actual description as part of the Hat 10th Ave presentation to CPC on February 20th, Item 7.1.2:
