With the new glass condo wall on the forefront of Toronto's waterfront, I wonder if the long lambasted grey beasts that used to assume that place - the Harbour Castle, Harbour Square, Harbour Point Condos (aka the "3 ugly Sisters") and Toronto Star building, have lost their foul reputation, or even gained new appreciation?
 
I dunno, but as far as I'm concerned, some of the new towers looming over the waterfront - the Ice pair, and 10 York to name three prominent ones - share a cool blue glass look that's both monotonous and frigid. There's something undeniably bland about these tall, imposing creatures.

I feel 10 York was a lost opportunity; a warmer colour glass for its cladding would have been a welcome break from the tyranny of sameness. Now it's just another stalk of density adding to the overall urban mass creeping up on the waterfront... I can't help but feel that it could have better distinguished itself.

Too late now, of course.

It's interesting how one can distinguish at a quick glance the age of the skyline by the beige/brick/concrete of the 70's /80's and the blue/green/grey/glossy glass of the last decade or so.
 
It's one of those towers that has some great angles from up close but is a bore from afar.
