It was all minimalist before...but that's not really important here...Don’t see what everyone is up in arms about. Looks like a fine minimalist base. Not much better than a hudson’s bay store in the suburbs granted but still far from the worst in Toronto.
Imagine instead if you where at a retirement facility where they made you wear a clown suit everyday to spice up your waning life up. Not a very dignified way to go. That's what CF did with this building. /sigh
