This is such a breath of fresh air along the waterfront looks spectacular and it was the building in this project I was least interested in
Was thinking the same thing. If this is the "lesser" of the three towers it bodes quite well for the quality and its affect on the skyline.

This being the "lesser" of the three towers really does highlight how the standard of architecture in Toronto has improved over the years. This one "lesser" tower is by far the best of any of the residential towers in the area.

I really do like how this tower is shaping up, though I so have to admit that personally, skytower is one of my least favourite buildings going up in the city visually. idk what it is about it I just think it looks ugly lol. It's definitely uniqueish for the city though and sometimes Ill take unique over nice looking.

This is a marquee development. I wouldn’t extrapolate too much and say that the standard of architecture in Toronto is improving. There are some hilariously poor designs that pop up on UT each day.

You seem to equate height with high standards and I, for one, am with-holding my praise/criticism of the project until we can see it in its totality. IMO, one really cannot judge the success of Tower 1 until we see how it interacts with Towers 2 & 3 and how the trio interact with the surrounding community.

Here's my take on what they're talking about 🤣 :
"Do you think the PINNACLE sign it's perfectly level?"
"I don't know man! I just wanna put this up and get outta here, I'm scared of heights!!"
"Then why did you volunteer to come up and do this?"
"I just figured out I'm scared of heights on the climb up!!!!"
