one bloor has an amazing shape but in my opinion the cladding is pretty bad, its somewhat plastic looking and looks too reflective, it doesnt show much in the photos, but it already has absorbed quite alot of dirt, unlike other projects i have seen from toronto
it will be quite a hassle keeping it clean , if they will actually keep it clean

It's definitely super reflective but plastic looking? I guess we'll have to wait till it's finished but I can't see them skimping on window washing. It doesn't seem to be an issue with the other glass towers around town.

perhaps, but other glass towers in toronto usually have more transparent qualities, which hide the dirt, but as you say, we will have to wait untill it is finished

That 2nd 'Art Shoppe' rendering is Picasso and not the Picasso design that ended up getting built. Picasso will end up looking similar to that minus the trees.

Sorry, my bad. I thought that all those renderings on that urbantoronto article about the Art Shoppe condo are different views of the proposed building. Thanks for the info. Will update my post.

Looks like the emergence of yet another node for metro Toronto. The goal is to develop them into mix use clusters with office, residential, retail, cultural/institutional infrastructure to cut down on commutes to the downtown.

Some statistics about that beautiful greenery.

Even Torontonians seem gobsmacked at the growth taking place. The city has been expanding quickly for decades but it really hit a tipping point around 2005. Development has been frenetic for 10 years straight and it's becoming evident that we're experiencing one of those once in a century booms that transforms a place into something entirely different.

People keep waiting for the dust to settle but the construction shows no signs of letting up. Exciting times for sure.
