Another big new tower development in Brampton. I believe this would be the tallest building in the city if approved. Actually quite innovative architecture given the usual dreck proposed in Brampton.

Location
Ward 13 - Toronto Centre
This was previously a Sears outlet store, and before that, a warehouse. To the immediate south is a facility where concrete structures (culverts, utility holes) are built, with several permanent cranes installed. I think that's the only yellow flag for this development. The Region of Peel recently built a social housing tower just to the east, at Hanson Street, so there's precedent for new residential development on the south side of Queen here, which has been industrial and low-value commercial since the 1960s.

The city has been building some very attractive community centres and libraries recently, but I'd agree that most other newer buildings are, at best, forgettable.

Who ever did the drawings has quite an imagination. Reality and renderings can be very different, obviously, but holy smokes! And an LRT!?

Can someone please add Brampton to the thread title? I clicked on this thinking it was downtown.
