Meh. Been there. Done that. Started in NYC. Spread around the world. Now in Toronto. Whatever.
'Meh'? Sorry you're bored bored by this, Condovo. Me, I do not understand the mentality that wants every single building to be completely unprecedented. I find it exasperating as it simply cannot happen with any regularity. The truth is that there is nothing quite like this in Toronto, and that most people in Toronto won't know anything about the other examples. In our context this will be somewhat radical and eye-catching.
Of course there are some Toronto buildings, extant and in development - other aA designs particularly - that lead towards this. Spire's south and east balconies are not completely parallel to the walls they cantilever from, but they are so close that it's barely noticeable. The next two towers at the Distillery will have angled and dented balconies, and Market Wharf will push the angles even more and get into the rhythm shown in the designs below...
but none of those projects show such pronounced use of angles, and none feel quite so playful to me as this one does (not that I don't like them). These three new buildings all approach the theme with their own variation, and I appreciate that too. The big question, for me, is the one that Solaris asks: how well will these relate to the earlier phases? For me these renders do not have quite enough information to make a definiteve pronouncement on that.
Anyway, to make it easier for everyone:
EDIT - and I hope the rezoning goes through for the 35 storey point tower: this height will help make the whole project relate better to hotel and condos to its west.
