I understand that. But I was actually referring to it as it stands right now. So maybe I should have said, "Oh yeah, right now that's some nice lowrise density. Though this won't always be the case; not because lowrise density isn't nice, but because it won't always be nice lowrise density."That podium is going to double in height with the tower being double that again. Not so lowrise.
I love how this is completing the streetwall and bringing some definition to the intersection.
Why does the east side of the Financial District feel so... weird? It's not bad... but it's not good and successful either. It's hard to explain, does anyone else get the same feeling?
Yeah, but I'm not sure what area he's referring to--strictly, east of the Financial District is anything north of the Esplanade and south of, say, Queen. Since the St. Lawrence Market area is pretty gold, I I'm not sure what area is being referred to. The 'upper' east side--anything north of Queen--is obviously rough.Assuming you mean "the area that roughly borders the east side of the financial district" and not "everything east of the financial district", I sort of agree, though that obviously ceases to be true as soon as you hit St. Lawrence proper.
I think developments like this, 88 Scott, Yonge + Rich, and a few others (including some already completed) are changing that, though.
