Happy to see the project finally moving on this site. I remember walking and driving by this site for years wondering if there would be anything happening to it. Now, the next big question is if/when something will happen on the remaining corner at Eglinton/Erin Mills.
It's a shame that Kindred is what is coming to this site. The original plans, and even some of the subsequent plans just had more originality or intrigue in the design. Kindred specifically looks very basic. One of the other proposals had an aesthetic that at least sort of felt like it referenced the architecture at the Arc across the intersection... I do like the height and density on this building, however.
I still haven't been able to find pictures that fully depict the other two buildings on the site, the rental apartment and the old folks home... curious to see how they'll come out. Although, from the little bit you can see from some of these pictures above, it doesn't seem like the architecture of Kindred matches along too well in form or aesthetic of the other two.
Take into account the surrounding buildings and Kindred does very little to stand out from the rest apart from the fact it'll be a bit taller... shame the city nixed the original plans because of the helicopter pathway to the hospital.
