I was actually shocked to see the sun still light up the north side of Front above the 17th floor podium. I didn't think any sun would hit the street after that height was reached. No question it's a massive project. But, in my opinion, as the window panels go on, it looks less monolithic and oppressive. I hope ground level retail/restaurants also give it a more inviting feel as well once leased. I understand many will not share this opinion. Hence, just my opinion.Given your forum handle @Electrixsun ... I couldn't ignore the irony of this photo.

The retail on Front appears to have three entrances so could, I assume, be 3 stores. A pot shop, a nail salon and a dentist?Note this is because the sun is higher in the sky in the mid-day of summer than at other times of year (closer to directly overhead)
So the sun will either not clear that podium or won't clear for not for as long in shoulder season and winter.
Going back to the 2020 report from Planning:

There is only a single retail unit facing Front Street, it's just over 11,000ft2; last I saw it was not being marketed as demisable.
