    Agreed. After watching Turning Red, I realized how the CN tower used to be so visible from different points in the city. It took me back to my childhood, when the Tower was my trusty compass when I took a wrong turn lol. Now it’s usually hidden, but I still love walking down Spadina and seeing...

    Understood. I was just referencing what one DRP panelist commented on regarding the CN Tower. This is from the UT article: "Another Panelist offered an alternative massing, arguing that the step up in the height of the towers "conflicts with the importance of the CN Tower". They elaborated...

    The subtle boldness of these towers are really winning me over...It's sad that phase 2 will literally overshadow the redeeming qualities of them from the west side. They're gonna look especially great through the Bremner Blvd valley:

    I wouldn't read that much into it...kids in the 80s/90s played in arcades, and I'm sure there was someone saying the same thing then.
