I know it's annoying for nearby residents, but to be honest the idea of a whistling tower sounds kind of cool. I love when buildings have a bit of story to them, like the Walkie Talkie building melting cars around London like ants under a magnifying glass: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2786723/London-skyscraper-Walkie-Talkie-melted-cars-reflecting-sunlight-fitted-shading.html

I just hope that whatever solution they come up with (if any) doesn't drastically alter the aesthetic of the tower.

I can't really hear it in the CBC clip over just the ambient sound of wind over the phone microphone, but I can believe it's annoying. My employer rebranded a few years ago and replaced the sign on the roof of our office; now, whenever the wind is stronger than 30km/h or so there's a high-pitched keening sound that pervades the entire top three floors of the building.

The top comment on the reddit thread is accurate. It sounds like vuvuzelas.

Which, since I wasn't paying attention, I just sort of tuned out while listening to that clip, as I have grown accustomed to doing ever since 2010. :p

Just completed PDI on two of my units this week. Some updates for those who are curious.

1. I was told the last occupancy will be Fall 2019.
2. Swimming pool is still under construction
3. Beautiful party room
4. Gym is underwhelming. Small and tight space.
5. Underground tunnel to Eglinton centre and TTC is expected to be open in 2021 (seriously?)
6. Metal screens on balcony are ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE. Much much worse than I expected. What on the earth was the architect thinking? Not only that it blocks the view, it also makes the room look like a metal cage. Definitely no for the people with trypophobia.
7. happy with the overall layout of the units.
8. Parking lot was nothing more than ordinary. Unbelievable that they want to charge extra $150 for the parking lot maintenance. What for?

Feel free to leave any questions
