It is the first review of a Rezoning application. Generally interiors aren't even remotely resolved at this stage. Why bother picking trees if the City is going to come back and say they dont even support the use or density and the City hasn't had it's open Houses? This will change through the process.Why is the winter garden like two small sterile looking trees in a lobby, come on. The lack of effort here is borderline absolute neglect of an important site, and the attempt to sell it as some sort of premier project is just insulting on top of it. If people who design these things have such low standards or give such low effort honestly why are they in these jobs. There's lots of people who would pour thoughtfulness into things like this if they could.
The "winter garden" here wont even come 1/100th of the way as it has over at the London Skygarden.
Hey come on... ?The "winter garden" here wont even come 1/100th of the way as it has over at the London Skygarden.
The current proposal at The Hub is the closest we're going to get to that, but upon each reiteration of that project, it's getting more and more watered down. I wouldnt be surprised if we end up with 4 trees at that location by the time all is said and done.
The reason is London is an International Global City. Toronto is simply not in that league. Toronto is also overshadowed by New York City and Chicago to a lesser degree and thus there is really no need to go for such extravagance. Toronto does things which are economical and simple. Its mindset is simply not flashy or extravagant and Torontonians simply do not push the architects or developers to go for something more bolder.Why doesn’t Toronto know how to do things well. It never impresses. They always settle for mediocrity, nothing more nothing less.
