Oof, that's terrible. That whole stretch of Bloor from Shaw to Lansdowne is one of my favourite parts of town, albeit in the 'messy urbanism' vein that so many on the forum disparage. I'm happy to see more density but this is an awful mishmash of bad materials. The way it addresses the corner is dreadful.

It's heinous. But at least the EIFS doesn't start until the second floor anymore. Wonder why half the ground floor bloor elevation is brick & not glazing. And no signage.... Sigh.
