    I am dismayed by those silver horizontal stripes all over the podium. They remind me of the "decorative" stripes they used to apply to the sides of sporty cars in the 1970s. This 1970 Oldsmobile, for example.

    What a stretch of the imagination!

    Not that I agree or disagree but:

    When walking by this, more often then not I hear complaints from others (talking with friends or what not) along the lines of:
    1) Its just too big.
    2) Doesn't belong on Yonge.
    3) Too much glass.

    Generally they fall into one of those three categories ... I'm sure the majority have no idea it will be a 70+ story building, so they're in store for even more in regards to 1) above.
    If I had a penny for every time someone asked me why I was looking up…

    Interesting. That helps to support my argument that people like the low rise/mid rise human scaled nature of Yonge Street as it progresses north. Personally, I'm all good with highrises on downtown Yonge including Aura, so long as we don't lose any heritage/heritage worthy buildings. It's north of College/Carlton that concerns me.

    Just spotted this blog entry, which seems to agree with the general sentiment above:

    I mentioned blogTo, but missed The Grid (I'm connected via Facebook), Spacing & Toronto Life.

    It's worth noting that people are far more likely to become vocal if they're bothered by something than if they're fine with it. For every 1 person complaining, how many aren't... 10, 100, 1000? This isn't really an accurate way to gauge public sentiment. People with negative sentiments always make far more noise than people who have no issue with something.

    Thanks for the latest picture, Caltrane 74. Remember, the objective for you is to post at least 1 picture a day.

    That should keep you young and active
