The parkette should be moved to the corner of Queen & Parliament in order to cushion vehicular impact. Both buildings on either side of Parliament have been struck by errant drivers in recent years.

From the front page article covering the DRP presentation:
One member stated that the architectural expression was "more appropriate for a 15-storey building" and that the "intense patterning on the upper levels was not helping". Another Panelist echoed those comments, claiming that it was "the same cladding as suburban projects...which are brought into the city and all look the same, they are all cut from the same cloth".
Can we please send this panelist a gift basket or a bouquet of flowers or something?

It looks messy and over designed now and the podium plinth feels suburban. This should be a streetwall, not a “podium”.
