    CityPlace is hardly a destroyed neighbourhood. The last time I was there, it felt like it was coming together quite well. The new schools/community centre will add another nice layer too.

    The tall building guidelines don't speak "to one design preference over another," i.e., they're not random guidelines plucked out of thin air, based merely on notions of taste. They're not designed to deliver a building that "finally" gets you "massing I like." Even if you disagree with them...

    ^^^ I'm sure an LED display could be done in a way that's consistent with their brand.

    Any more info on the park? Design? Landscape architect?

    The Uniqlo frontage is pretty miserable; such a waste of prime, visual real-estate. It's crying out for an LED display.

    2002 called. They want their building back.

    I'm more upset by the ugly garbage bins and picnic tables in NPS. This is Toronto's front door. WTF.

    We're definitely moving into some sort of Neo-POMO era in architecture. This proposal's bordering on kitsch but I'm eager to see more.

    Now let's strip away the rest of the building...

    Will this be going to the DRP again? There's still basically no design here.

    It's disappointing that the balcony railings don't have the brass finish of the window wall.

    Scrap or move the western tower and properly centre the other two on the Dome. My OCD is triggered by the positioning of the towers vis-a-vis the Dome.

    I don't think the balcony glass looks horrible. It's the highlight of the building.
