Thread: 300 Front St W (Tridel, 49s, Wallman Architects)

    Default 300 Front St W (Tridel, 49s, Wallman Architects)

    In this morning's Toronto Star, the city has a statutory notice for an application for a 58-storey tower at Front and John (Condo).

    Need to add that to the new skyline. (that's the n/w corner, opposite CBC)

    Wasn't sure if it was both lots or just the one.

    Although an excellent spot for a 58 story condo, we are building a skyline of buildings that sort of top out just shy of 600 feet. While this is tall by any standard, if they are all the same height it will not be particularly striking. There should be some variation in building heights in that part of downtown. With the Ritz, RBC, Shangri-La and the Cityplace towers all being flat-top buildings of roughly the same height we might end up with a Vancouveresque skyline, albeit twice as tall.

    Bring it on!!! These tower proposals just keep popping up everywhere!!! The downtown core is sure spreading west with all these tall buildings either rumored (Manulife), proposed or under construction.

    Obviously the 4 seasons is a much better example of rigorous design and quality in execution. 300 Front is an ugly, sloppy clunker.

    Taken today - 300 Spandrel St W. Here's hoping something gets built to the West of this thing to hide it's uglyness.

    It's big, bulky, grey and kinda depressing.

    Amazingly, the west elevation is the most flattering one, by far!

    really? I always thought the north or northwest was nice, there's a pic by "charles bodi" posted on page 105 a while back where the building actually looked half decent, although it was from very far away and from a plane. that angle seemed to have the highest black to "aqua grey crap" ratio.
