Both of those views would be almost completely blocked by Stephen Avenue Quarters, right?

I know heritage buildings can establish protected view corridors that restrict development heights - the classic example being St. Paul's in London. I feel like there's a "modern heritage" argument that could be made to save this (i.e. nothing taller than 120m in certain locations, where the left over density could be sold/transferred to neighbors).

I happened to be up by Centre street north yesterday evening, it looked pretty cool. I also noticed the night before Brookfield Place had its crown lit up in what I could only guess was a royal purple.
