That's okay. The render doesn't "do it" for me.

Next.

despite the renders, this is in quite a down and out part of town. I wouldn't have expected a high end building in this area, or even this for that matter.

A decent but not spectacular tower. Views from it should be pretty good without towers nearby.

This part of town desperately needed something like this. It's nothing groundbreaking, but will instantly bump the neighbourhood up a couple notches.

considering this is in one of the poorest neighborhoods in Canada, anything is acceptable really. I expect this to come out as some form of Spandrel mess, but it will be a huge improvement for the area.

I've never considered that an acceptable argument. It's poor so we can build anything? Sorry, but no. Poor neighbourhoods deserve good design just as much as wealthier areas. They will never recover if we lower our standards and they shouldn't accept any scrap we feed them. We invested in good design at Regents Park and we should always make the effort.

Btw, there are $800,000 condos right across the street in the Merchandise Building. I know because I've been in some of them.

The area has some pockets of poor and lots of subsidized housing all the way to Regent Park and Cabbagetown, but there are so many historic streets, charming parks and great restaurants around here, very diverse, fun neighbourhood. I used to live in Merchandise lofts and loved the area. More density is good, the only sad thing about this area is the loss of those irreplaceable beautiful original Georgian townhouses at the corner of Jarvis and Shuter because of a suspicious fire
