Not bad!
Much more skyscrapers should have such a great shape.

Four Seasons Toronto gets closer to opening
Quote:


The new 55-story Four Seasons hotel and condominium tower is located two blocks east of the current Four Seasons in the tony Yorkville shopping and museum district.

The hotel - expected to be the luxury chain's flagship - is set to open this summer. Four Seasons will announce an exact date this spring.

The hotel has 259 rooms, including 42 suites. Condo units occupy the top half of the tower, so residents will get the best views.

It's a wonderful urban compilation. Sleek modern tower, monumental brutalist Manulife, an oasis of greenery, a 1930s inspired Uptown, and even a CBD bank tower way off in the distance. That glass box of a podium on Four Season's is just scrumptious.

The shape reminds me a bit of the First Canadian Place, but this one is glassy.

It's a clean design but its size is what makes it memorable. You can really appreciate it coming down the DVP.

It does look like a beast when coming down the DVP or even Mt. Pleasant. With 1 Bloor at 75 stories (possibly more) and the Holt tower at 83 stories, it will be a pretty mean looking cluster.

Then we add in the Yorkville garage proposal at 66's, Cumberland Terrace tower at an unknown height (probably going to be big) and throw in some smaller towers, like the Ridpath development and it's going to get busy!
