One of us is confused. Spiros is on 17th ave, while the building I'm talking about is in Marda Loop on 33rd ave.

The ugliness I refer to is this:
https://www.google.ca/maps/place/33...6656!4m2!3m1!1s0x0:0xa758c46a3ba56fd4!6m1!1e1

Although the Phil and Sebastian inside is very nicely done.

I used to live by Spiros for years...and never went in either, ha.

Woops, for some reason I was confused with the building at the corner of 17th and 33rd. It's strikingly similar.:oops:

Wow, holy crap Momin. That's for that article. I hadn't realized just how much was going on in Marda Loop these days. I'll have to head down there to see it in person.

Wow, haven't seen that one in a while. First time for me really since the wrapping came off. Looks like it turned out great.

This is how you build a neighbourhood-scaled, pedestrian-oriented office building. Simple and clean but hits all the right elements that matter. I am excited to see how the retail layouts will look.

Not bad at all. Very nice glass for a small project. I'm not digging the stone panels. I wish they also hid the stair tower on the other end of the building. It not's very attractive for the 20th street side.

That turned out fantastic! High quality, not too flashy, and great street presence.

Looks good. I was hoping the glazing would better resemble the rendering, or maybe that there was less glass, but the general design is nice. I love the street level design with those large windows and the open bay, and I like the different terraces. Overall, very solid.

Marda Loop
That tree sculpture lights up at night. It creates a nice sense of place at the centre of Marda Loop. The building is a total win for the area. The only downside is a lack of trees along the sidewalk. Not sure if there are plans for those.
