UT is often closed mindedness re-packaged as 'we're just following protocol'. If it doesn't tick off their boxes it's just not allowed. It stifles creativity and 'rot' sets in when you're in that environment long term.
I noticed the same thing. They seem to be an arm of the Toronto development industry. It almost feels like they're being paid under the table to heap praise on these buildings. Maybe they are? :dunno:UT used to be fun and open to more varied opinions. It's more of a business now then it used to be. They seem to love to bash a lot of proposals but the second a proposal goes into sales they treat it like it's some sort of masterpiece to appease their advertisers. It's more of real estate page now then anything else.
You now get statements like this about ugly projects: "At 45, 38, and 35 storeys, Tridel's Islington Terrace community is introducing a bold influx of density to Toronto's Bloor and Islington area."
Anyway, count me as another that likes this design for it's simplicity and scale.
