I took a walk around north and east of the Selby site yesterday evening:

Central Park?

While I don't think screams 'amazing', The Selby is refreshing with its choice of colour and materials, and its slab-like profile really makes this stand out from the majority of buildings built in recent years that gravitate toward slender. Not to mention, its location so far east and north from the majority of high-rises downtown makes its impact more felt.

The fact they used brick and isn't another green/blue glass tower makes all the difference. A simple classy design. I also, for the most part, hate balconies so the fact they are recessed makes it all that much better to me.
