Wow this building really plain and boring... Why doesn't someone build the beautiful city of Toronto the supertall that they deserve? I just don't get it.

Give us (Toronto) a break. We haven't had an office tower (major) built in this city for almost 20 years. We're just easing our way back into the game. Com'on man.

It's boring, but it's sleek and it's tall (yet massive). And the design is timeless.

You echo many people's sentiment. It's not architecturally exciting. It's disappointing how boring it is, but at least we're finally getting major office towers going up. The excitement lies in the addition of a significant tower more than anything else.

that "someone" needs to be the city of toronto, because they strike down or shorten any 300m+ proposals that come up. it's ******* frustrating man, trust us. the good news is that it seems that the city is accepting the reality of the want to build a bit taller...we still won't get anything like Spire or even Sears for a decade or so, but there is definitely hope for something that replaces FCP as the second-tallest in the city.

Well, the old concrete stump has been demolished, but the building next to the historic one (which is to be preserved) is also being demolished. What is the name of those buildings next to the site of the Bay Adelaide West?

Great. It looks like we'll be seeing the first narrowing of the core anytime now.

It's to protect the workers from the wind.

I was always under the impression this would be a wider building. Will it extend beyond the protective boards??

It is a monster in person, the core alone is gigantic.

no, the steel beams are the extent of the building's footprint.
