This project's polling peaked my interest to check out the rest. My replies have been on the whole lot. ("projects" instead of "project") I don't think it's a realistic representation that 80 to 90% of the poll results are either good or very good. It doesn't praise the quality of a Telus Sky. It doesn't really inspire developers lurking on the site to make improve on follow up developments.

I've driven past this project. I understand it's location and limitations. It's still ugly as sin.

I think most people are voting based on the context of the project, which also is part of the difference between Calgary and Toronto. Many in Toronto might also be voting based on the context, but the context in Toronto is different.

Toronto forumers definitely consider context as well. Many have been around for a lot longer than the Skyrise Calgary has. I now recall the time when anything was better than a parking lot. Eventually one ugly turned into two, than three, than four. The built form was greatly improved with midrises replacing the asphalt wasteland but, the ugliness quickly set in as a permanent, lost opportunity.

Anyways, I now wish I never posted that post.

I managed to get some pics today. Same kind of glass pattern as Odeon, and Ventus.

Big utilities in the boulevard unfortunately. No trees along 16th Ave as a result. Sucks when it occurs, but the cost is so tremendous that unless the City takes it on as part of a corridor redevelopment, no building developer will be able to put them in.
