Does anyone know if traffic lights are to be installed at the intersections of Power/Richmond and Power/Adelaide?
Pedestrian crossing at these corners is often difficult and dangerous with drivers racing off the overpass.

I think so… it was in the drawing.

What do you like about this project? Honestly, I'm struggling and would love some help, lol.

I actually thought I'd have a quick answer but I really don't. I realize there are small elements that I like like the glass on certain elevations but it's really not an attractive building.
I kinda like the overbearing and dystopian look. It looks ominous in a sort of Blade Runner way in @f_gho's night time photos.

But I realize it's a pretty cheaply made building because of the many mullions and transoms in the window wall, plus the glassy ground level retail. They also made no effort to disguise the back painted panels like the East 55 building.
