I think they are a uniqe edition to Torontos skylineNah, they work fine. In a world where 70+ storey towers are background buildings, it's fine to just let things like this play a supporting part. Yeah, yeah, 'waterfront'...I'm not really concerned. If we really cared, we'd enact some concrete policy to this effect, but, as Lifetime / DiamondCorp are proving, we can absolutely put up any utter garbage and no one in power will care.
Breath holding is not recommended - but the podium is (just about) OK while the towers do add some visual interest - I can see them clearly from my living room (and can't see the podium!)Was driven by on the Gardiner Expressway this weekend. I found the sugar crystal pattern quite playful and pronounced enough to create a fairly good impression. Not overly excited about the large podium. To be fair I'll check it out at ground level once it's complete.
Fortunately, most of them are part of Co-operatives so are NOT likely to be destroyed. Those on the right are part of David B Archer while those on the left are connected to the adjacent TCHC building. They are all part of the (award winning) St Lawrence redevelopment of the late 1970s and early 1980s that ran south of Front St to the rail berm from Lower Jarvis to Parliament.what's keeping these small townhomes in the centre of the city from being torn down? looks like a good place for 2 new towers
