    Today:
    The views south from the upper floors of Selby will be commanding and among the best in the city.

    Edit: one more:

    We could use a couple of buildings like this in the Entertainment District.

    A lot more than a couple. Imagine City Place with a bunch of these?

    Bloor and Sherbourne is looking rather mature I must say.

    Is that demo site the location for Rosedale on Bloor?

    Edit: Never mind. I see it.

    Central Park?

    --

    While I don't think screams 'amazing', The Selby is refreshing with its choice of colour and materials, and its slab-like profile really makes this stand out from the majority of buildings built in recent years that gravitate toward slender. Not to mention, its location so far east and north from the majority of high-rises downtown makes its impact more felt.

    The fact they used brick and isn't another green/blue glass tower makes all the difference. A simple classy design. I also, for the most part, hate balconies so the fact they are recessed makes it all that much better to me.
