This project is exciting and is probably the closest to a Montreal gathering place boulevard/walkway that Toronto will ever get. This type of project is what we need more of, gathering places for people. There should be like 4 or 5 of these types of developments spread out throughout the downtown. This will draw locals and tourists.

I love this project and I'm very happy with how it looks and what it's going to bring to the community. But I think we need to keep pushing the needle, at least aesthetically, so I'm gonna get a bit nitpicky.

I'm a huge fan of the texture on the facades but I feel like the window treatment–or lack there of–should better match that. Right now it looks almost incomplete, similar to how Woodsworth looked before they added the window detailing:

I also wish there was some sort of cornice they could add. Just taking a look a the shot of the heritage building right next to the new one shows how much more resolved the design looks with a cornice. Maybe the glass railing will help with that. And obviously, wish there was more variation in brick colour.

Again though, still an amazing project.

Very nice solid and unique structures! More cladding around the windows instead 100% glass facade! Hope to see more of this in the downtown core as seen in the photos up above .
