I really couldn't disagree with this feedback more. This is how we end up getting monotonous, boring buildings.The feedback about the design was actually pretty constructive - I think the meeting is on YouTube.
They basically said they appreciate the colour (pulling the distillery red into the west Don lands) but that the combo of brick gradient, sunshades and the staggered balconies all together was a bit much. They also brought up the materiality and maintenance of the shades as Toronto gets pretty grimy. I generally tend to agree - I like the colour but I think they could stand to simplify and refine the design to be a bit more elegant.
The combo of brick gradient, sunshades, and staggered balconies is too much? Gradient will be toned down by making it monotone. Sunshades will be toned down by removing them. Staggered balconies will be toned down by making wraparound balconies.
All of a sudden we'll be left with a boring building that looks like all the others.
