    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...

    Excuse my ignorance, but at the last DRP meeting was it not recommended for a redesign of the massing in relation to the CN Tower? I know the DRP can only give recommendations, so was it just ignored and the developer will go ahead with this design?

    crappy iphone pic but I like how the massing compliments the Selby from Glen Rd

    Toronto | Social at Church + Dundas | 164.89m | 52s | Pemberton | RAW Design

    I actually think the balconies could have saved it, if they were opaque/coloured. The shape is at least interesting, but it's lost with the transparent glass.

    Garbage Bag Tower shaping up nicely, from Roundhouse Park

    Toronto | Sugar Wharf Condominiums (Phase 1) | 231m | 70s | Menkes | a—A

    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:

    Toronto | Wellesley on the Park | 194.15m | 60s | Lanterra | KPMB

    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.

    Toronto | Eighty One Wellesley | 97.53m | 28s | Aragon Properties | Core Architects

    This building is still under construction and somehow already looks 40 years old. The cladding is visibly dirty and discoloured...hopefully it gets a good wash. I don't hate brutalist style, but its cold presence does weigh heavy in the otherwise colourful Village. Maybe unpopular on this...

    View from the SkyWalk. Phase 2 will help L Tower not stick out like a literal sore thumb.

    Not a big fan of this building, but it does have a nice presence when going south on Mount Pleasant

    Toronto | Forma | 308m | 84s | Great Gulf | Gehry Partners

    When it comes to residential high rises, yeah it does. It's not called Billionaire's Row for nothing. Although midtown NYC does have great supertall designs, I'd rather have this elegant stacked box that is 'affordable', than a spectacular-looking safety deposit box for foreign billionaires.

    While I'm not a fan of buildings entirely cladded in glass, I do like how buildings like this and CIBC Square simulate variations in color simply from angles and natural light. It's refreshing, especially since the renders didn't really hint at this. Really excited to see this go up!
