Tower is going to look great once all the balconies are clad and painted.

God, what a hole Queen West is. There's not a single nice building between Spadina and Much Music. Hopefully in 20 years this area will under go a major transformation. Picasso will be a nice start.

I could see something being put in at Queen and Peter sometime soon. That area is just waiting for a change.

Well Picasso is great for that area there, I meant something a little more west. Maybe where the Gap is.

I'm hoping the entire strip gets redeveloped save a few gems like Much Music.

MuchMusic won't go. A couple of the older style corner shops would be great to stay. Not a lot of those tower style corners with the gorgeous curving windows. The first thing I want gone though is that horrid plastered box that houses Mansion and those other two clubs. What a mess.


On a Shangri-La note. We should see some foliage on this gem for the summer when it's completed!
