Super! C'est un beau projet mais c'est pas super haut, crois-tu que ça va réellement avoir un impact sur votre skyline ou bien ça va se fondre dans le paysage en passant inaperçu?

Land-use was just approved today for our first TOD along our BRT network. It's a large parcel directly south of Mount Royal University/Westmount Corporate Campus, and west of the new ATCO headquarters.

Hamilton's new residential towers remind me of the crap Toronto was building 20 years ago.

Agreed , but it is nice to see Hamilton's downtown core become alive again. Give them a few years and they will get better I'm sure as the cities core gentrifies and becomes a little more sophisticated. Getting more people living and working in the downtown core is the most important thing that is happening right now. The new LRT will only help

A final design has been submitted to the city for approval marking one of the last stages in the Distillery's redevelopment. One single tower, an expansive podium that will block the Gardiner from view. It received unanimous support from the design review panal. The only thing removed was the fountain which they felt took up too much space that could be used for gatherings and that it was a distraction from the historic area.

Cladding for most of the development will be Granite along the base, copper accents, and anodized aluminum panels with a bronze or copper look.

SHoP Architects & Quadrangle
Address 31R Parliament St, Toronto, Ontario
Category Condo, Office, Retail
Status Pre-Construction
Height 544 ft / 166 m
Storeys 49
Number of Units 496












The Kettle is the central focal point of the building, situated just to the east and asymmetrically off-axis with the terminus of Trinity Street. Clad in smaller anodized aluminum panels with a bronze or copper look, the panels are rotated such that the appearance of the building changes from transparent to opaque depending on the angle of approach. The Kettle is designed as a distinct piece of architecture that provides a point of visual interest within the Distillery District.

The uses within the Kettle vary by floor: the ground level will be retail, the second floor will house a restaurant, the third floor will be an event space, and the fourth floor will be office space. A multi-functional gathering space will be located on the roof, as part of the landscaped terrace running the length of the building.

Also to be noted is the accommodation of a future tunnel passing underneath the rail corridor, connecting the Distillery District to the new waterfront communities due to sprout up to the south. Once the City gets around to constructing the tunnel, access will be provided at the base of Trinity Street through the interior of the Kettle. This important connection is visually marked in the architecture of the building by a small gap left between the Kettle and the Podium.

What an improvement for the Yonge Street proposal.

The Distillery tower is hideous. Why do architects in this city think random stripes or colour blocks look good? Imagine the TD centre with random silver or white vertical stripes. The long podium is boring except for the small rotunda. IIRC, the aA design was more interesting. I do like the look of the retail units. Again, their sameness has no place here.

Looked to me like the metal vertical strips switch angles at different points which is creating shadows and reflections that look like different colours. I like using angles to create accents as the light reflects but I'm not sure about just abruptly flipping them in different directions.

I agree but I don't think it's random colour changes here, but changes in the angles of the cladding.

It is kind of funny but I also agree it's not the right place for a fountain. In that closed in area the noise might have been an issue.

Yeah, the sentence sounds ridiculous but in reality it's not really an appropriate space for a fountain. It's often used as an event space and the renderings make it look wayyy more open than it is in reality, which is fairly cramped even without the new buildings there.
