i think this is a great looking cluster , esp. the pic at the top of the page.

I'm sorry but let's not kid our selves ... it's an ugly mess ... on the ground level it's not too bad although a lot of the retail is dying (this isn't a big deal I think overtime it'll stabilize) but the majority of projects built in this **direct** area 2+ years ago were terrible from the ground up. The newer phases are better to a certain degree.

I say this particularly because we've had so many other great low rise projects in the area (downtown) and a couple taller ones that it's somewhat saddening that the most prominent from a 'post card' vantage are this bad.

Agreed. Only the unabashed Torontophile could admire this dog's breakfast. One positive thing perhaps, new developments in this melange of mediocrity may be more attractive and unique simply from the marketing angle. I just hope it's not too late.
