    I think Aqua is architecturally much more impressive, specifically up close. But One Bloor is the better looking building.

    Is this entrance (the whole revolving door with "1 Bloor St. E." sign on it) temporary? It's so ugly.

    I doesn't seem temporary to me.

    The two horizontal strips that the One Bloor sign is attached to should really be another colour. The R looks so much like a B.

    yeah, looks odd.

    It's suspended from awning brackets that are not centred on the revolving door.
    So the ONEBLOOR signage is not even centred on those brackets.
    Then there's the cross bars interfering with legibility.

    They'd be better off affixing the sign to the roof of the revolving door on a pedestal.

    The ONEBLOOR signage isn't great, but I have more problems with the black "1 Bloor St. E." sign on the revolving door. At least the ONEBLOOR attempts at being glamourous, the other is just so generically bland, and I think the building deserves a lot better.

    Those views won’t exist in 4 years when the One is built. Enjoy now. Good to have these photos.

    Maybe it's just me but everything just screams cheap in this building... From the entrance to the kitchen island in the units... Such a waste for such a great location...

    IMHO, the entire entrance, signage included, is just cheap and a disservice to the building overall.
