    That has always been the plan.

    It was terrible before, but now it just looks like it belongs in NYCC. Try again.

    Totally agree...I always felt the refurbishment of the old building was a bit dubious - with its 8ft ceilings in the rooms, a definite faux pas for Yorkville....but this new tower is a new low...

    Possibly the worst new proposal, especially the worst considering its context/location, of all the projects underway in Toronto today...the original aA proposal was light years ahead of this junk..

    Gee, people and city planners were so afraid of that old proposal, to get this garbage......Ohh please, all because of heights and silhouettes

    Back 4-1/2 years ago

    The original proposal for this site was to be done by aA but it was deemed to be too tall. Apparently now that the developer has to go shorter, in order to make up their margins they've gone with a cheaper design by a third rate architect.

    That rendering is surely a wind-up.

    Please let us know when the real one surfaces...

    As Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty resigns, then the shadow over Queens Park will be OK to build a tall tower in Yorkville Plaza.
