This just goes to show that it is possible to design something that feels like it draws from the past without being kitschy or fake. This is the kind of thing I want to see more of in Toronto. Can't wait to see it built!
Can anyone remember a similar time in the city's recent history in which so many game-changing, epic developments started development at the same time, not to mention additional bar raising proposals like Sidewalk and Gehry GG. I think you have to go way back to the 60s and the time of NCH-NPS, and Mies' TD Centre forever raising the profile of what was then Canada's 2nd city.
