the skyline on the horizon is Mississauga, the one along the lake is Humber Bay Shores. Both are suburban highrise clusters.

I didn't love this building when I visited Toronto 2 weeks ago..... just too generic looking and blends with the other generic glass condos in the city.

One day I walked up and down Bloor Street then up through Yorkville.... I just wasn't impressed with it.

Fair enough; each to their own. But I've not seen another tower in Toronto whose design looks like it, so I can't say I find it generic or blending in with all the rest. Plus, the tower clearly is not finished yet.

^that render was from when the building was proposed at 10 floors shorter than it actually will be. Its lost the angled roof since then as well though.. But will be 20 meters taller than in the render. (238 vs 258m)

But yes, its almost topped out. I believe they are building the mechanical penthouse currently.

I will try to get a photo from where I live, maybe 5 km north of this tower, and post it here. It is definitely making an impact on the skyline now.
