Love love love it! It has a big city feel and looks better than most of the projects in the core. I hope they keep the black and red as well as that heaviness. If the end product is true to the render, I'll be very pleased. I used to think of Yonge/Eglinton as the edge of the city, but it's becoming more connected to the downtown each passing year. A project like this will bring it even closer.

Looks great. I just hope the local community doesn't shoot it down and make them ruin the building like with the Minto towers.

I like the idea of taking out one slice of the tower, but I'm not sure about the cladding.

They seem to have gotten rid of those cool square windows in the podium.

I'm really looking forward to this one. With all four corners of this intersection containing large buildings, yonge and egg will further cement that big city, uptown feel.

These are the 200m+ proposals I'm most worried about in Toronto. It would be a break through to get height like this at Eglinton.

It's too bad as it's one of the better designs out there.

When someone mentions struggling, what does that actually mean though?

I don't think it's fair to suggest a project is struggling if it hasn't sold out, say in a week like some previous projects have. Take 88 Scott for example. It's taken a while for that project to sell, but I wouldn't use the term struggling to describe the sales because it has taken longer than expected (or hoped). I think E Condos will sell, but it'll take some time. Yonge and Eg is one of the hot markets, so I don't see this project being cancelled or re-marketed. But then again, what do I know?

88 Scott's problem is that they are vastly overpriced. Their condos are priced for what condos 'may' cost 5 years from now if you take the very high-end of the average cost of the surrounding area currently, and assume that the price keeps going up 5-6%/year for the next 5 years. Since no one believes that will happen, they are having trouble selling out. I imagine it's the same for E Condos.

Why doesn't Yonge and Eglinton have higher density already? This maybe a case of overpriced units but developers haven't been too keen on building a whole lot of apartments in this area in general. In the downtown core, even a location like 10 York gets nabbed up almost immediately while this area does not seem to be nearly in the same level of demand. I personally find it to be a very nice neigbhourhood; one that is prime for increased densification.
