145 Wellington West also got a rare render upgrade with a striking new PARTISANS design. Torontonians are slowly transcending our painful culture of cheapness, parsimony, and "tall-poppy-ism" (The Well and a few other projects are a testament to this incremental cultural shift), albeit at a glacial pace. I'll remain cautiously optimistic with this one, and "believe it when I see it". Till then, fingers crossed that de-value engineering doesn't wreck it beyond recognition (far from a guarantee).I'm not optimistic this will plan out as it is advertised right now, but even a watered down version of these new renders would be considerably better than the initial renders.
This is one of several projects lately where the renders have gotten better from what was originally proposed as opposed to going the other way which always seems to be the case in Toronto. Even if this doesn't turn out as advertised thats a trend I'm a fan of overall.
