Agree. They should have moved away from those blue/green glass condo towers 50 buildings ago. Thankfully, developers are finally getting the message and the current proposals seem to have moved beyond that aesthetic. The office vacancy rate is the lowest in north America so hopefully we'll start seeing some great looking office towers too. I haven't been impressed with the office towers that have gone up the last 10 years. They're functional and high quality but depressingly boring.

Some of them are sort of boring, but none of them are ugly and they all make their presence known, whereas many of the residential towers that have been built recently are either gimmicky, forgettable, or straight up ugly and most make much less of an impact than most of the recently built office towers. Many of the office proposals for Toronto during the past couple of years are much more than boring: quite nice and interesting, as a matter of fact. At least in my opinion.
