I like it? Cmon, it's not like Frank Gehry is designing anything in Scarborough any time soon. Lets be happy that whoever designed it wanted to make it at least a little fancy.

it's ugly, a hulking mass, uses 3/4 of the site for surface parking, has essentially no ground related interaction with the street, has no podium likely creating wind issues, has major servicing and site plan issues.... I could go on. This thing is what NOT to do.

I would join in with the criticism, because anything pagoda style reminds me of Chinese which I now dislike because of prosperity. How much do you want a redesign?

It's like he took an apartment building from HongKong and pasted it over.

Oh please decline.

Dear lord. Don't do this to Malvern. We shouldn't be building high-rises in area if we cant have quality designs, better thought is needed as these are the landmarks that will define an area for decades to come.
