Maybe they could add 10-20 floors while they're at it!

It will look great in glass... just hopefully not the same colour as Bay Adelaide Centre.

Holy shit! This is major. Can't wait to see this, FCP's cladding has always been one of my biggest complaints about Toronto's skyline.

How about some colour bands either at the same floor levels all around the building or stagger from side to side??

I do have all sides shot as before as well other angles and lets see how it will turn out from the before shots.

Is there anything to speculations as to a possible height increase or at least the addition of some roof ornamentation ?

I hope to God nothing cheesy, but a screen wouldn't be an unwelcome addition, IMO. I'm just not into that crazy-welter of antennae up top on any building.

The building is fine like it is, I think this cladding gives a charm to the skyline

At least, they should add some height to it, so that it would be a supertall.
