Toronto Backstage On The Esplanade | 116.73m | 36s | Cityzen | P + S / IBI

The floor plate number of this building should have been switched to the height of 63 storeys instead of 36. We need some other variety of coloured facades for this area. At that height you could you see that building from a distance. I think this building turned out real nice using the dark colours !
 
The stone looks similar to what was used at U condos, but in this case they managed to avoid making it look like a cell-bock. I'd say it's the articulation on the first 4 floors.

All that work to articulate the podium with the gentle extrusions and stone cladding and yet they didn't use a capless glazing on it? : /
 
Interesting photo - when you can see all of it the building does not look quite as dreary and cheap!
Disagree. I actually think the cheapness is accentuated. This entire building looks like a giant plastic Walmart toy to me. Base is great, but I feel offended for my city every time I look at anything above the first few stories.
