Honestly I actually am beginning to really like this building. No, it won’t win any design competitions but the building material quality is good and the street presence is promising. I also really like the warmth and look of the horizontal orange lines... I was also shocked to see some of trees surround sugar beach were still holding their leaves in to December!

Every time I passed by this building, the sun was glaring in my eyes, making it hard to see the finer details of the materials here. But what I think I saw was some sort of a wood grain look to the horizontal stripes. Does anyone have any closeup photos of the stripes? Are they going for a faux wood look here, or did my eyes deceive me?

It's not wood - it's terracotta.

This project, Tridel's Aquabella & Aqualuna, The George Brown Timber, T3 Bayside, this area is going to be incredible in 5 years.

Yeah:cool: and i think that everything else from Yonge to Parliament on the north and south sides of Queens Quay pretty well also have been spoken for
..i believe in that stretch the only lot that we haven't seen a concrete plan at Toronto City Planning is the Loblaws site owned by ChoiceREIT @ Jarvis which has a rumored condo development of two towers of 60s/52s

https://www.toronto.ca/legdocs/mmis/2019/te/bgrd/backgroundfile-130338.pdf
The two-tower demonstration model contemplates two tower forms with heights of 52 and 60 storeys. These heights are between the height of towers proposed for 55 Lake Shore Boulevard East and the two towers under construction on the Daniel's City of the Arts northern block at 143 Lake Shore Boulevard East. The proposed overall heights of the buildings are consistent with the policies of the Lower Yonge OPA, as they step down from 55 Lake Shore Boulevard East (Block 5) to East Bayfront.

...Sorry to be off topic but pretty exciting area
