I recommend you take a look at it in person during the night. That's my favourite time to compare.

It's a big building. 10,000 people work in the first Canadian location each weekday, 16 million people visit Canada's first annual event. He was the tallest building in the Commonwealth of Nations 1975 - 1998, surpassed the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Amazing what a difference cladding can make.
I never thought of it that way! An actual glass crystal would be amazing!

Sharp Design Centre could be better, but trust me, it could be a whole lot worse. I like the black and white when you get the blue skies of spring and summer.

Toronto has a fine skyline, very under-rated.

The unit is physically attached to the building itself. There are three levels to the structure: lowest is the unit that attaches to the building, the middle is the removal and prep of the facade, and the top is the application of the new facade.
