Tower is looking really good, but I still don't like that podium. It looks sloppy and doesn't fit well with the design of the tower.

The podium does look a little out of place with the rest of the building but will wait till it's all done to pass final judgement on it.

I agree about the podium, but the tower looks fantastic. I love that glazing!

I think it's great. It breaks up the usual monotony of blocky podiums and towers going up everywhere and it engages the street and pedestrians with wonderful terraces that invite natural light instead of austere walls.

This is prime retail area, and still no word on who will be setting up shop here.

It looks like they're doing away with the TV screen idea. Is that true?

We'll get a good idea of what the finished product will look like when the balcony glass starts going up on the tower portion. So far I'm very pleased and this might not end up being the nicest tower at this intersection either. 'The One' proposed across the street promises to be even nicer.

Yorkville is really coming together.

That retail is looking very Apple-store-ish. I am starting to think the rumours of this housing an Apple Store are becoming reality.

You never know. Tech is highly competitive. A rival like Microsoft or Google might swoop in. I suppose a Dollarama super store won't be coming to this spot.

Considering Microsoft and Sony are closing boutiques launched to compete with the Apple Store, I highly doubt they will open new locations in the same format.

The rumour of Apple selecting this location is sounding more and more plausible as they other location they were considering (the old Roots Store across from Harry Rosen) was retrofitted to a Holts' Men's Store.
