They get angry that past generations bulldozed or destroyed buildings in the past that today would be cherished yet are doing the same damn thing.

20s architecture wasn't valued in the 70s so we destroyed it and 70s architecture isn't valued today.... so we're destroying it.

For heaven's sake.... LEAVE THIS BUILDING ALONE! Who ever is responsible for this needs to be tarred and feathered. Barbarians at the gate. I'm fuming.

It's actually from the 60s and while I think it would better as it is, Toronto has much nicer stuff from that decade.

Now the 70s has much fewer noteworthy buildings, like the Royal Bank Plaza, and I've noticed a small strip of its golden windows were replaced with dark green. The glass is so beautiful and I'd hate for it to be lost in a "renovation."

You can thank Cadillac Fairview, as they are the new owners of the property.

Leave Simpson Tower alone please. That design is timeless and what they are proposing is garbage.

For all its supposed progressivism Canada is a very primitive country when it comes to stuff like this.

Hopefully this one doesn't come to fruition as it seems to have no regard for the existing heritage buildings on site.

luv the density, but omg so much glass. I'm going to be afraid to walk under these towers. I really hope the Queen-Dalhousie-Shuter-Mutual project makes an effort to create a more continuous street edge on all sides. I was just passing by this site and wondering when and what will be built here finally after all these years.
