Yea i raced to my computer to explain myself but it looks like 42 covered me word for word. Yes i was implying that MOD is the only hope for incorporating these buildings into a tower as opposed to demolishing them.

Are those vertical lines something other than glass? They look like a different texture. If that's the case, then I think this has the potential to stand out in a good way. If it's just spandrel, then I'll withhold my judgment until we get a better render. I'm not too fond of those houses because of their location. The ones truly worth saving (in my opinion) are the ones North of the Dundas/Beverley intersection.
