From the article, a note on the architecture:
"Mr. Pasquarelli explained that the design of the tower is broken up visually into two sections. The first, wider section would contain the office floors and be faced partly with white terracotta panels; the taller, narrower section, with predominantly black cladding, contains apartments. He said details of the architecture, including the textured ceiling of the atrium, would be inspired by the existing buildings, which once housed a factory where General Electric’s Canadian unit made turbines and motors."

660,000 square feet of office space
588 residential rental units
10,000 square feet of retail
Ooh that restaurant bar rooftop terrace is just lovely idea, reminiscent of King Taps at First Canadian Place or the Milestones patio at 10 Dundas. Hope that it comes to fruition.The details, I am sure, will be great. It's the broad strokes I find rather unremarkable.
I have put a database file together, attached at the top of the page. Renderings include a proposal for the King Street West public realm with a significantly narrowed street.
Here's a little something interesting: the breakdown of uses:
