Wonder if it's to do with all the perforations on the facade. Will be a shame if those have to be patched up...

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/ar...-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.
