This city certainly is getting a shot in the arm in the glitz department. The ROM Crystal, the Art Gallery of Ontario expansion, the Four Seasons, Maple Leaf Square, the Gardiner Museum, the Harry Rosen expansion, waterfront development, Metropolis-Dundas Square, 1 Bloor East, Trump, Shangri-La, the Ritz, the L Tower, the new film studios, the new opera house, and this place. Not bad all in the span of 3 years.

Then there's all the other development.

Is he/she supposed to lie? When people compliment, it's not worth anything if you know you've simply censored out all the opposition. It's hollow and meaningless to surround yourself with people that only say 'yes' or 'I like', because it ends up being one big lie.

Criticism is welcome. Censorship is not. Communism? Remember that?

What does communism have to do with censorship? Communism is an economic system. It has nothing to do with civil liberties or political systems.

Communism isn't a political system? Now I've heard everything. Freedom of speech and the fight against censorship is one of the corner stones of a free democratic society. It's authoritarian regimes such as fascist Germany and communist Russia where control over what people say was stunted.

In democracies where liberty is treasured and vigorously defended, you never try to shut someone up, even if you disagree with them. It never ceases to amaze me how many people in democratic nations don't understand this very basic thing. To do so, is an insult to the free democratic society we enjoy. Fascists and communists attempt censorship, democratic people, do not.

Unbelievable. I hope your name 'Hoosier' doesn't imply that you are a citizen of Indiana in the USA. If you are, you should know better.

Wow, this will have an "in your face" presence with very little setback from the sidewalk, which is really great for pedestrian street interaction.

I do hope that the final sidewalks will be wide and nicely done to accomodate the mobs and gawkers during Film Festival time, or they'll be spilling onto the streets.

Wow. Last few updates have been approaching ground level. It's now above ground and quite imposing indeed.

Yeah, Toronto is riding a huge wave of growth. Even with the Credit Crisis, practically all towers are still going up and more are in the works.

Well Toronto can't let Chicago and New York hog all the limelight now can they? Best skyline in America? Not there yet, but they're trying damn hard to challenge for it one day.

Glass cladding looks pretty much like the renders. Happy about that.
