It’s a fantastic building but I wish they made the lobby warmer. It’s a blank and sterile canyon. Needs some colour and artwork of some kind. Hope the building adds some soon.

Sure is.

The trees and decorations help but it’s still bland and cold.

Still no sign of them putting in all the trees along King Street that were promised. And replacing the ones needlessly cut down last year, to rebuild the sidewalk in front of the old Toronto Sun building (like they couldn't have just tried to leave them in place, and see if they'd survive, before replacing them?)

The renderings on the First Gulf website still show the trees.

I think they will NOT be putting in-ground trees back along King Street but there WAS talk of large tree planters. Time for a "letter to the editor'? They also need to fix the sidewalk and replace the temporary wooden pole @ the corner of Front and Berkeley.

Letter to the editor?

Time for some difficult phone calls to First Gulf, and if necessary an appeal (or at least a very pointed letter) to the OMB. I walk and stand along there in the sun, all the time. I'll be needing financial compensation for increased melanoma risk. :)
