Really wish they did more at streetlevel. The next phase will apparentely fix some of this but I wish they did it right from the start.

I wish we get more blue glass in there. Now its mostly grey and green but the new towers will be blue like the waterclub towers.

I live in the Optima building at CityPlace and the unit I bought is on the East side of the building (i.e. the side directly beside the SkyDome/'Rogers Centre'). Our unit is up in the 30s so when the Dome is open, we can watch the games. In the summer, I would sit on the balcony on the weekends with a coffee and the paper and enjoy the games (kind of like a SkyBox!). So far, we've been able to see the Jays, Argos, and the summer exhibition soccer games. Granted, the players are way small though...

I can post some pics if people are interested...

That is because you have to host your images somewhere and link them in your post once it's done.
Refer to this post for advice on how to do that:

I think it was too earn some money from the land while they worked on the buildings east of Spadina.

Night shot


It doesn't look like it but the towers all have a lighting scheme. "Warm by Night", it's pretty nice. Spot lights are fixed at the building's crowns and they glow orange and red colours. When you see them with the skydome, which is always well lit, it's pretty impressive. If the CN Tower was lit.. that would really be a spectacle. I'm glad that CityPlace had the provisions for a night time lighting system, it makes a big difference.

Unfortunately, Signature will be the last tower to be concstructed. However, given the pace at which these towers are going up, I suspect that we can expect it within the next 3-4 years.

They probably have one master design copy, and then make it conform to the building shape. That's why they all look so characterless and boring.
