What do you mean here? Aura was always going to suck. Most of us knew that from the beginning.It's amazing how many people give this rendering a thumbs up. Can they create something different. Because this building is going to be seen from afar when completed ! And who knows if it's going to look good or bad! Like the complaints you hear today about the Aura Tower.
Wow! This is a beautiful detailed antique looking development that's definitely needed and to belongs in Yorkville area! As seen in the little thumbnail photo up above.
Amazing work as always!^ Our best look to date at the former design. Strange timing indeed
The latest renderings have certainly delivered. Now let's build it!
Some additional context:
From this view, i just realized that we'll be loosing a good view point of the CN tower from this angle forever.Yay some new renders to play with! I took the back end rendering and placed it more realistically. The view corridor down McCaul Street is gonna really transform. This new design has been growing on me, somehow this design really feels like it compliments the Alsop Tabletop.

It's also because how massive these towers will be. Especially now with the pandemic, these towers could be hard to sell. Even the pricing might change peoples minds about buying into this because from the looks of the materials being used for this project, I'm pretty sure these won't be anywhere near affordable and will be in the million dollar+ penthouse suite range.As excited as I am by this development, it feels like the boy who cried wolf. Media articles, press releases, and photo ops over the years, but nothing seems to actually be happening especially when the design keeps changing so drastically at every turn, after every "announcement".
Forgive me if I've lost faith and say, wake me up when actual work happens.
Haha, looking back at the last 10 years and some of the though times we have faced although not Corona, I'm still going to say this thing will sell like HOT CAKESI believe that's why they're opening sales in 2022 instead of this year...as it is hoped that most of the pandemic dust has settled by then so we can all move on as a civilization.
At this height, do builders put in dampening mechanisms to counter wind swaying???
