A greater variation in materials is needed. Instead of orange glass, why don't they use some other sort of orange material? There are tons of choices.

Well, hopefully it will be very vivid and opaque, unlike the attempts at colour on M5V for example. Perhaps the Post made a mistake, or the materials aren't final. Some sort of glossy orange composite material seems like a good bet at this point. And (correct me if I'm wrong) there are ways to polish/finish copper so that it doesn't oxidize, at least as quickly. I'm thinking of those old copper distillers used in early commercial alcohol production.

The orange glass is pretty obvious here:



Looks hot!

I say this because if you look at Freeds track record almost all of their buildings have been in the club district. I think they're trying to replicate that success east of yonge. If they instead looked at the demographic in the st lawrence market and built mostly 1 and 2 bedroom units they'd have a building just as successful as Berczy if not more.

There is no "club district," and the neighbourhood west of Spadina was hardly anything like it is now prior to the residential build-up taking place today (and it isn't all clubs). Freed's earlier efforts did include a number of family-size three bedroom units. However, as those units take a longer time to sell, Freed likely wanted to dispense with those in favour of suites he could unload to investors.
