Walked by Queen Richmond Centre last night and it's atrium really gave me goose bumps, the base kind of reminds me of the jacks I played with as a child. And to think I almost bought a condo next door 15 years ago. That FLW inspired atrium is nice in the visuals of the other building but it all depends on the execution, I thought the apple slice bays on the podium and taller portion were more reminiscent of Marina City in Chicago.

That wavy facade will look really good if the light hits it right.

That building would probably have the 3rd best atrium in the city after the Bookfield place & Royal Bank Plaza.

The Student Learning Centre will provide Ryerson students with an outstanding environment to study, collaborate and discover. The stunning new building will be a transformative, bold development and an important step forward in city building. Designed by the acclaimed international architectural team of Zeidler Partnership Architects of Toronto and Snøhetta of Oslo, Norway and New York City, the building has a targeted completion date of Winter 2014.

I love the way the look of the Rivercity 3 building is sort of post apocalyptic. The way the balconies come out in an undulating fashion from what is ostensibly a rectangle box looks like remnants of an exploded building.
As well, the cantilevered balconies give some units larger terraces and others deep overhanging sheltered balconies.
I just hate the name. Nothing here makes me think of Rivers.

The River City buildings are literally a stones throw from the Don River

That's what I was thinking too about the design. It looks like it's from a futuristic dystopian city.

I haven't heard a peep about 481 University in a long time. I do think they can go a hell of a alot taller on University Avenue. It needs substantial height along it to avoid feeling wind swept due to the width of the street.

That could be the first time in Toronto they've retained the facade of a post-war building.


Also 505 University Avenue is probably the nicest building on that stretch of University Ave. It's an unmentioned gem.
