Toronto Sugar Wharf Condominiums (Phase 1) | 231m | 70s | Menkes | a—A

I finally made Senior Member status. It only took 12.5 years.
Pictures from Friday. It looks like they are working on the first mechanical level.

I appreciate the playfulness of the balcony design. Otherwise, this complex would have looked way too sinister / austere especially for the waterfront.

My gripe is still at ground level. It feels like two towers on a hulking parking garage.

Maybe they will activate and animate it but i doubt it very much.

From the original renders I thought the balcony colors would have a more uniform "pattern" around it. Doesn't seem to be the case.

Is this more of a "use whatever we had on hand" type thing? It definitely stands out a lot more compared to other buildings nearby

I think they are pretty bang on with the pattern. I would imagine each panel has a location on the building.
 
Wow I feel silly, I was looking at an older render that just had a brushstroke going through the middle of it all. Looked at a more recent one and it matches a lot more. This is why I shouldn't look at my phone past midnight haha.
