I’m liking this more and more. The chamfering is adding nice depth and articulation to the building. (cell phone pic)

It's not bad. But what I find with Toronto developers is they like to bait and switch.

Where is the glossiness? It looks very dull. And that seems to happen. It seems developers will always take the more conservative approach. Maybe "bait and switch" isn't the right term in this case but the design went from bold to just meh.

For goodness sake, this is going to be far better than "just meh". Why is it so difficult to see some progress when it happens? Even if it's not everything you expected from the rendering, you have to remember that they are created before every bit of the design has been costed, before working drawings are created.

The spirit of the design is still there, there's still very little of it up so we're not getting he cumulative effect yet, and we've barely seen it in more than a couple of lighting conditions so far.

I find it so odd that everyone loses their minds over The Selby's red body (which is beautiful but hardly shimmers) and then when we get a similarly bright treatment here it's lamented. It's also worth noting we're yet to see this with the lights on inside and it seems like most of the renders had it at dusk with some generous photoshop help.

In the grand scheme of things, the negative reaction to the painted aluminum is one of disappointment, not outrage. A lament that it could be better - not WTF were they thinking.

I have a feeling the photos aren't doing this justice. (At no fault to the photographers)
