    A few new images via Norm Li's Instagram. Cladding at the top seems to have changed from black to white (good move IMO).

    This is great--definitely a top notch Teeple. A few more of these in the W Donlands would be a great antidote to the drab grey palette of the current built form.

    It is likely a lack of decision. 120 days after initial application is all you need to file an appeal.

    Lots to like here, but it's a shame that the heritage building isn't being retained in full or part. And I actually preferred the last iteration over the current one.

    I think 10-12 storeys is just right, but I'm sad to see the terra cotta colour go. Now it's just another (albeit nicely designed) black and white / greyish building.

    The loss of the heritage building is a real minus in what otherwise seems to be a good project. I actually like the new iteration.

    I like this new design, but it's too bad they couldn't keep the original (orange) colour into the mix.

    I also prefer the terra cotta cladding over the current proposal. Too bad we're getting yet more gray.
