It's going to look awesome once they start putting the balcony glass on.

Well yeah... it has yet to add all the frosted balcony glass which will completely transform the tower. I take you're from Australia?
I love Australia and I love Aussies but why is it always the Australians who come in here with the whole "I was there...was boring and lame and or generic". 90% of the time...it's an Australian!! I'm sure it's just coincidence but man Im getting so bored of Australians on this forum lol, any other nationality and and its all positive comments, then an Aussie walks in and well... que the inferiority complex based comments.

Neilio, there will always be people who resent the competition. If Linum wants to be so transparent, let him. We know this is a great city so what does it matter what someone overseas thinks?

Couldn't carry Aqua's jock strap. Don't get me wrong, the Toronto building is a fine one with some innovative aspects. But Aqua was a real leading-edge trend setter and still looks more avante-garde than 1 Bloor.

I like Aqua but One Bloor is a more refined building. The advantage is even wider for the Toronto building when one critique how each meets the street. The Chicago building is quite clumsy at street level.
