A lot of restaurants will close down during the construction phase.

I mean who wants to eat in a place with all that noise and debris.

A very idiotic proposal which will destroy Restaurant Row.

Yeah, I don't think it's really worth the hassle. Towers like these are a dime a dozen.

I suppose it was always going to be a glass box, wasn't it?

I think the days where Toronto only cared about height are gladly coming to an end. Architecture and design do matter today and are signs that Toronto is growing in both affluence and sophistication.

I have to say I'll be very frustrated if this gets approved and the far superior Mirvish-Gehry proposal down the street gets cancelled or watered down.
