    The profile is outstanding--very metropolitan in a masculine way. Art Deco towers in NYC and Chicago give those cities a similar look of masculine strength that fits their identities as leading cities of the world. Our architecture should be that way as well, though I'll also take 10 more Marilyns for my visual pleasure.

    Thankfully for Toronto, much better projects are either under way, or are being planned. Gradually, the eye will be drawn away from "Aura" and towards better executed high-rises.

    I highly doubt "the world" is interested in any of Toronto's condo towers.

    Ironic seeing how a high % of these new units are being bought by foreign investors.

    Hard to say. Because Aura is a massive building. It has a equally huge street presence as it does on the skyline. There are many tall high rises planned around it, but there are very few spots left in the core that can accommodate buildings of Aura and One Bloors scale. These are landmark buildings for better or for worse. Aura is here to stay and eyes will still be drawn to one of the most distinct rooflines in the city - Aura's single greatest contribution, even if it looks unfinished up close.

    They're not buying property for the architecture.
