I know.My goodness, is that grade experience ever horrendous -- a single, flat, uninterrupted, block-long expanse of window wall? Come on, Tridel; care even a bit.
But in a way it does. Or, at least, does by neglect. The City fights tooth and nail over height and stepbacks and choses not to concern itself with ground-plane interaction. Were it to refocus its energy on the things that really matter - how we as pedestrians experience the public realm - we could almost immediately have better outcomes. But they don't, so developers don't and we get things like this.
