Yes, it's a very solid looking building. The materials give it a heaviness and sense of permanence. It's not everyone's cup of tea, but I find it a welcome reprieve from the sea of glass towers going up everywhere. Toronto needs variety otherwise it will start looking rather sterile.

It's not going to get any taller, but it's still under construction. I'll let you decide how it should be classified.

Looks art deco inspired, finally the city gets a change in modern architecture.

Nice. I like the classic look of the tallest tower.

This building deserves far more attention than it's been getting lately. The use of materials and it's massing are some great qualities to pay attention to. I guess it's all just a matter of taste.
