    Definitely dreading the inevitable 30-odd floors of spandrel facing down onto the new park south of this.

    The window wall and palette are clearly unfortunate.

    But, for better or worse the strong horizontal lines do evoke the building's former skin. And having expected a blank wall of spandrel on the south side, it's at least a pleasant surprise to see the faux window treatment -- although I'll hold on judgment of the execution based on those pics and at this early stage.

    I think the silver portions are still unfinished; you can see some parts where insulation has been stuffed in, filling the gap.

    I hope at least they use a different shade of green or faux glass for this area. This will probably be Toronto's largest spandrel wall once finished?

    It's really too bad that beautiful stone cladding didnt extend upwards instead of using that unfortunate spandrel.

    Lanterra is usually fairly good with their design. Still early enough.

    I disagree that it's still "early enough". We know what this building is going to look like. If you're not convinced by the cladding that's already installed, look at the drawings. Crappy window wall with spandrel glass. As for the proportions of the building and the overall design, I offer no comment beyond "blechhh".

    It's way too early to judge. The cladding looks alright. Not anything great but it' looks fairly good. I'm more intrigued by the balcony treatment here considering this project is plastered with them.
