I hope so, best patio in the city!wait is the open patio/bar for nationals on top still gonna be there after this redevelopment?
I can appreciate your thoughts. For me the big win for this project isn't so much changing the brutalist podium (although I think it will be an improvement) but it is how it will re-activate the streetscape at that location by creating a patio space and restaurant that interacts with Stephen Ave. The dark glazing of the windows of the Scotiabank combined with the black fences to prevent people from sitting on the edges of the building worked to create one of the most hostile environments on Stephen Ave and I'm extremely happy to see it replaced.Once again, I don't see eye to eye with popular opinion. They are replacing an interesting, Brutalist podium with an unremarkable but, fussy glass design. It's not much of an improvement. The current structure would look a lot better with new glass and getting rid of the Scotiabank signage if it hasn't come down already.
