The windows feel cheap to me and I think they'll deteriorate quickly. As well, I don't like the long white stripe and then short white stripe design, it's very repetitive. I think the limestone finish on the podium is great, but I would've gone for more glass to better contrast the lightness of the limestone.Interesting, can you expand on why you don't think this tower will age well? Examples would be awesome.
Yes, the initial attempt looked as though it had been installed by people who had never seen paving before. Now it looks as though they have seen photos of some!The paving has now been re-levelled, although it's hardly a prefect job. The whole podium still looks like it needs a good clean.
My family and I own 2 penthouse units in this building and this is really upsetting! The property manager is good though and is working to get this resolved quickly.Walking past Backstage today I noticed that they failed a Fire Inspection in January and since January 7 have had to maintain a fire watch 24/7. Clearly the problem (with smoke detectors and/or sprinklers) is clearly serious as it has still not been fixed and maintaining a 24-hour Fire Watch is not cheap. I hope the developer or Tarion are still involved as the owners will hardly have planned for this and fire systems should not have failed so soon.
This building has long been finished and occupied. Can anyone tell me why they applied for (and received) a permit to take water? See: https://ero.ontario.ca/notice/019-1008#proponent(s)

This was posted in the CIBC thread.As an owner in this building, I would love to find plans on how the bridge/PATH connection to CIBC Phase II is going work and look. Anyone have this info?
