Wow....The Well will be something. Thanks for the updates, I appreciate seeing Kitchener's growth as well.

I was hoping the office tower glass would have a little less tint. It's exposed so probably a good idea. Promising either way.

FINALLY! A Toronto developer does something above and beyond with the brick facade printed spandrel glass.

There are 20-year old buildings with the "green glass window wall", that everyone on SSP speaks of, literally right next to the Cardero in the photos for reference. I have big issues with the building, starting with the totally-undesigned podium and the bi-polar aspect of the tower but green glass isn't one because there is no green glass. At what point is it just a vestigial word for something else?

They're still building a ton of garbage in Toronto. eg wrecking the historic West Queen West streetwall with suburban office towers like at CAMH

This is what welcomes you to Toronto as you crawl along the Gardiner by Liberty Village: vomit

^ That drive looks a lot more interesting now that it has been built up that way. Good stuff.

That Port Dalhousie project looks like it is by the Yacht Club.

A good video showing all of the construction of Central City in Surrey. It doesn't get mentioned much outside of the Vancouver forum, but downtown Surrey is going through a bit of a construction boom.

Bad day? It's a visual analogy for mediocrity that everyone can recognize. You missed a word there. My reference wasn't inclusive to all green glass window wall. To what degree is subjective to the individual. Nature of the beast.

If we really want to go deep. My reference wasn't to green window wall at all but to architecture that employs green window when I followed up on the balcony placement that had nothing to do with artistic value.

The hotel was called Inn on the Park hence the classy term Auberge. The hotel was designed on Dickinson's death bed. Wasn't enough to save it since it was modernist in design. Well, that part of the property are now car dealerships. This was an overflow parking lot with a expansion tower completed in the 1970s.

Oh, I'm fully aware. I was not happy to see Peter Dickinson's work knocked down five years ago, or the original hotel structure to the east. It was quite a nice hotel, very helpful for the IBM headquarters that's being facadomized….my mother worked there years ago and visited the hotel for meetings and such.

The original structure served as the podium for the first expansion tower. That was the one thing that should have been saved. I liked the 26 storey hexagonal prism too.

Sad too the original Four Season's motel was replaced by some heinous stacked townhomes instead of something more substantial.
