I like the dark balcony glass on this tower. The balconies are being treated as a design feature rather than an afterthought to satisfy purchasers. It's kind of like what some were hoping for at Parade when the dark mesh was up. The spandrel and mullions on the recessed portions are unfortunate though.
 
Was out in Mimico today, here's a couple of pics...

Neither are particularly good.

One persistent issue with the buildings in this neighbourhood is that the podiums are sterile. They're generally a boring combination of window wall and white precast. Some curtain wall would go a long way, along with more diversity in colours and materials.
 
Everything G+C touches turns to crap. This is brutal; the heaviness and lack of articulation in the black balconies with black balcony slabs; the sterile podium with no diversity of materials.

Blech.
