The only thing I agree here is it will stand out. As the worst building in the area. What a bait and switch.That could end up looking pretty striking. The brake on the panels will catch the light in interesting ways, and the heavy verticals will be discernible from far off. It's going to stand out from its neighbours.
...but of course it's it! /sigh...also up on the value engineered chopping block I suspect is that gold tint for the tower windows. I suspect it will be Toronto grey'd all the way up. /sigh
The glazing doesn't look as deeply recessed as shown on the rendering (or I guess, the black metal panels do not poke out as far).... or is there another layer of perforated black metal to come?
