Love those punched windows. This feels very reminiscent of a lot of the new builds that are going up in Williamsburg, BK.

It's lined with townhouses - while it may be an extension of the Distillery, I wouldn't expect it to be a very busy extension. I don't see a lot of pedestrian desire lines through it and townhouses don't generate a ton of pedestrian activity.
AFAIK, there's a public school going into the lower levels of Block 20 on the south side of the lane here, so there will be pedestrian activity in the area, but of a community nature more than of a city-wide destination nature.

The two on the left are full winners for me. Angled recessed windows with masonry is basically the two Gairloch developments combined and brought downtown for more eyes to see. And concrete for the tower is a very welcome addition to our skyline. At least I think that's bare concrete. Over the years the precast segments will develop a progressively warmish hue.
