I'm not a fan of the site plan and that weird diagonal curved street thing in the middle or the "a humongous podium followed by a humongous podium" concept but I do hope this project properly animates Wellington.

Don't get your hopes up. Just look how great the Eaton Centre has been for lower Yonge Street :rolleyes:

The new landscaping on Wellington will be A+ though.

SPA drawing sets have been posted for the highrise and midrise portions of the project.

On a related note, the thread title doesn't currently account for architecture consultants Adamson, aA, Wallman, and BDP.

getting some serious Liberty Village vibes from the Wallman buildings (and not in a good way).

Those Wallman ones are old. The bricks are like this. GFRC for the solid areas in the setbacks.

There may be a character limit for thread titles haha :D

To be honest, those tower designs are pretty underwhelming. I think it works for the middle building with the heritage-esque podium, since it echoes the dynamic of buildings like QRC. But overall I was hoping for something with more variety. I guess its better to have memorable podiums (podia?) and generic towers than the other way around though.
