I didn't even bother to take a picture. It's absolutely gross and Madison should be embarrassed.

Can we add: Deeply ashamed, guilt-ridden, and ready to act on this by dissolving the company and donating all of its assets to charity?

Just wondering. LOL

I'm very curious to see the tower cladding on this one...the fritted glass guardrails and 'copper colour metal' cladding have a chance of really setting this building apart and bringing some much needed colour to the entertainment district.

I feel like I've been holding out on photography soo...here's a bonus shot of some current Entertainment District construction; Peter and Adelaide on the left, Central Condos east of that (Theatre District too if you squint), Nobu on the far right (which covered my view of 19 Duncan 😢) and the race skywards between 55 Mercer and the Maverick in the centre frame.

So far, the podium is staying faithful to the renderings, which gives me hope that they won’t nobu the tower. 🤞

General question, but why do window wall systems always need the thin ventilation piece above the windows whereas curtain wall systems don’t?

The renders rarely show those pieces but they have a large impact on the look of the glass.

Residential curtain wall does include vents, but they're often better integrated, or even hid behind the balconies. I'm not sure how commercial towers manage to avoid them completely, but I would presume that they have significantly different ventilation systems.

Here are some examples of residential towers with curtain wall, with varying degrees of vents.

For instance, the Four Seasons (shorter) tower shows them quite prominently:

Or Monde, where they're a bit more subtle, but still there:

Or One Bloor East, where they are supremely well hidden to the point of only being able to see some on the podium:
