Restricting the height at Yonge and Bloor would be absurd. Let's hope 275 metres goes through.
/\ the biggest offender here is ROCP 1 & 2...I was really hoping for some sort of art deco spire a la Chrystler/Empire State. Insted we got the bland, flat tops which are in place today - twas a real disapointment
I was not privy to this forum or the 'building community' when ROCP was being built. Therefore I had no idea what was going on top until they put it there.^ why would you "hope" for a spire at RoCP - it was never even contemplated in the design at any stage of the project...
AGREED. One of my larger problems with that design is that the height of the building doesn't warrant having a spire that large. While the whole thing up on the 401 does look ridiculous, I think that ROCP is high enough that it wouldn't look goofy with a well designed spire or similar piece. On second thought since this is a Corazza building its probably better we didn't get one!Isn't there enough of that sort of foolishness up on the 401?
And ya, was very surprised to see them rolling out with pre-sales before the building is even approved.
