That would be much appreciated by many. I know many people who hate grey, glass boxes as much as I do. In fact, I think it's a small minority of Torontonians who actually like those things. (and most of them are on this site)
There is well-designed, well-executed neo-modernism (or "grey boxes" as you call them) just as there is poorly designed, crappy neo-modernism. Likewise, there are different styles of architecture that are done poorly in some cases and well in others.
Pier 27 is an example of a more innovative approach to a condo design by Toronto standards. I would take it over the chance of getting a poorly designed, tacky alternative to neo-modernism that doesn't work as well.
