I don't think 'monotony' when I look at a tower where every second or third balcony slab is angled differently. I do think 'eyesore' when I picture it with three shades of glass on it.
The “cheap glass slabs” you’re referring to actually costs a fortune in today’s window wall world of condos. This project specifically has a bypass balcony detail (where the glass is hung covering the slab edge) in which by code requires it to be two pieces of laminated glass with a minimum thickness. The glass is fritted to appear more transluscent (hiding the window wall millions behind). There are additional rails that catches both top and bottom of the glass to keep it in place (as per post falling railing incidents). The glass itself has to withstand a 100lb weight ball travelling at a certain speed from inside the balcony.Am I the only person who has never liked these projects?
They come across as cheap glass slabs with balcony arrangement nonsense that should have never been at that strategic location at the waterfront
