    I would love to see see this site get developed. That beer store and parking lot are hideous. I wonder how much property "The Beer Store" has in TO? That company is a blight in our city.

    I agree. The Beer Stores are just plain awful. They also occupy some very choice sites in our city. Most folks simply seem complacent about Brewers Retail.

    Yikes. What's with the blue Eye of Sauron on the northwest corner?

    Is it meant to be a clock-tower?

    Replace the yellow brick with red brick. Replace the spandrel with red brick. Then maybe...

    The ground level is actually okay here, the form of the building feels okay, but why so many finishes? Some simplification could add some cohesiveness here. Right now this is baaaaaaaad.

    It's right in the floorplans that it is retail on Gerrard. I dream of the day when more UTers look at actual drawings instead of taking renderings as any sort of full-truth.

    Would be vastly improved by picking one colour of brick and sticking with it.
