That intersection will look amazing when you look up once it is built.

Kinda of reminiscent of Aqua in Chicago, but like in calmer seas...or something.

It's just that name. Number One "Bloor"? I know it's the street name, but...oi. Not a pretty name for such a pretty building.

I've always associated the word 'Bloor' with upscale/big city so that word has never had negative overtones for me.

It's not that there are negative overtones by any means, I just don't think it's a pretty-sounding word. I still really, really like the design of this building.

For many of us Torontonians it's a very prestigious name and street. The One Bloor saga has been a long battle here for us so we certainly love it. I can imagine from an outside view it would be a rather..unflattering word.

Bloor is the second or 3rd most important street in the city. this is one the corner of Younge and Bloor streets, both are in the top 3 most important streets, and this is in the heart of Yorkville, a very prestigious neighbourhood in Toronto. (lots of Ferraris driving around in this neighbourhood) it is also the corner where the cities 2 main subway lines meet.
Quote:
The street is named after Joseph Bloor (or Bloore), a brewer and land speculator of this area in the 19th century who founded the Village of Yorkville in 1830.
^ got that from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bloor_Street
