Feb 21 from cherry beach dog park
Edit. 4 months too early for this building. Meant to post this on One Yonge.

I'm a little concerned about the pedestrian experience on this one or lack of it...
The entire East Bayfront is megasized developments. The scale and separation of the developments doesn't lend itself to feeling knit together like other areas. This development is bounded by two heavy traffic, high speed roads so the pedestrian experience will never be great. Hard to beat the waterfront path though!

Neither the Harbour Street extension nor Queens Quay East, when they are both done/re-done, are being built as "heavy traffic, high speed roads." They should be pleasant for pedestrians once complete. (Only the Lake Shore and Gardiner will qualify as high speed in the area.) That said, aA's strong point historically has not been the sidewalk experience, and yes, these are as megasized as anything they've ever designed, (possibly their largest ever?), so it'll be a pleasant surprise if Harbour ends up being surprisingly pleasant to stroll along.
