The glazing would appear more like 'cut-outs' if the mullions were darker, or both the glass itself and the mullions were tinted darker.

It's too bad it's looking so cheap because it's a behemoth; impossible to ignore. 1200 units!

Here was my view at the very top of Tower 1 -- trying to get accurate height dimensions for my louvers all around the mechanical penthouse.

Sorry for the bad photo - it was very hazy yesterday morning.

Tridel got it right next door with the black mullions and tinted glass. It prevents the visual mess and distraction of window shades and people's stuff behind the glass from distracting the look of the original design. The spandrel panels blends in better.
I wished other builders would learn from this.

I went by this at night it looks absolutely monsterous, even more than during the day. This is such a missed opportunity here. The facades looks so flat that it doesn't respect Teeple's design.
The massing is there, but everything is lost in the mess of window walls and spandrel -- this is the landscape of Toronto.

I was skeptical but I’m liking this, looks good from the gardiner. The space between the tower points are interesting as you pass the structure.

TORONTO, Sept. 10, 2018 /CNW/ - Minto Capital Management Inc. ("Minto Capital") recently held a topping off event at 39 Niagara ("The Project"), a purpose-built rental tower under construction in Toronto, Ontario. Employees and investors gathered on the building's 14th floor on Thursday, July 26th, 2018 to celebrate the completion of the steel construction phase of the project.

"It's incredible to see the hard work and dedication of our employees and partners take shape with the construction of this exciting project," said Glen MacMullin, SVP of Investment Management for Minto Capital.

39 Niagara is a residential rental development located at the northeast corner of Bathurst and Front Streets in the Downtown West district of Toronto. "This rental residence will consist of 501 rental units, 54,210 square feet of retail space, and more than 25,000 square feet of indoor/outdoor amenities," said Paul Baron, VP of Asset Management for Minto Capital. "With its superior location and amenity package, 39 Niagara is expected to attract residents looking for high quality, full service living arrangements in downtown Toronto."

While the north side, 39 Niagara, is being offered as an apartment and retail development opportunity, the site also includes 690 condominium units as part of the building at 27 Bathurst - currently 99% sold with the remaining 9 units going on sale in 2019. Leasing opportunities for retail space are currently available.

Occupancy for the condominium tower is expected to start in February 2019. Rental units will be available starting July 2019. Register to receive updates on rental opportunities as they become available here.

Even for a quasi-casual shot like this, men still can't substitute their button-downs. And that's in freethinking Toronto.

None of the shirts have button down collars though.

This one will end up passable which, for Toronto, is good.
