Toronto West Don Lands: Blocks 17 & 26 | 141m | 43s | Aspen Ridge | Core Architects

cant understand why any rational architect would think that this alternate massing achieves anything better than the original

V unfortunate that this ended up with Aspen Ridge / Core... Not a team I really trust to execute anything half decent. I'm expecting lots of oil canned black metal panels and pale grey spandrel ala Galleria
 
It looks so ugly that another protest is required.

Also anyone opposed to the height of the building? It feels so out of place for the Canary District neighbourhood.

As planned, the whole site will be badly overbuilt, but Aspen Ridge has claimed they are required to build to the heights in the MZO.

I think part of the reason nobody is satisfied with the plans is that they're trying to put too much on a small site with heritage components. There are only so many ways you can divide up 95 storeys of building.
