I noticed today that the balconies look entirely clear from Yonge-Dundas Square, which is... not great. None of the pattern appears, just ugly spandrel. 252 Church can't come soon enough to block the view of this thing.It's a little bit not as bad depending on how the lighting hits it. But overall definitely shaping up to be a building of missed opportunity. Could have been a lot better if the balconies were more pronounced.
There is one advantage to clear glass on balconies When I sit on my balcony, I appreciate the clear glass. It means I can look down through the glass and don’t have to stand up to see objects or happenings on, for example, the street.
The problem here is Pemberton, who really could not give a hot damn what their project looks like clearly. This is literally picking from bargain basement materials and slapping it on.How can the architects responsible for this horrible building, stand on the street and look up at the building and think "good job. This turned out fine"?
An architect with even half an ounce of integrity would be ashamed.
