I also find that the white brick looks more cream than white. I agree that offset is probably a bit timid.

Methinks birds roosting on those offsets might be a problem even as is. If the spaces were any larger you'd surely be getting ostriches up there.

A lot of people are saying Toronto is having problems with llamas roosting in those offsets on a lot of their trendy high rise buildings.

Yeah, but in Toronto the llamas were intentionally introduced because they're the natural enemy of ostriches. It was a misguided effort to try to control the ostrich population.

Looks like the lesson here is to stop judging projects before they’re finished.

The only difference in the brick is that it is offset instead of in columns. Take a look at the renderings in detail, not the thumbnail, and you'll see that what's being built is basically what was rendered. Natural lighting versus studio lighting is probably the biggest difference.

I knew you were going to say something silly even before I finished reading it. Dude, if we stop judging things before they're finished, probably 98% of the posts on this board would disappear.

The other lesson to be learned is that not all renderings are created equal.

Yes, you need to have good bread and a hot pan.  :banana:

 

Toronto doesn't have llamas, they have raccoons.

In other words, fat chance that projects turn out exactly like the renderings?
