The View has more windows and visual interest plus a less 'overcast grey' colour scheme than this one. I prefer the View to this. If CNIB retained the original design than I'd reverse my rank.

This south elevation has the most glass.

The windows are so ... without symmetry ... hodgepodge the way they appear. I imagine rooms will need a custom valance to hide the different height and length of mullions and glass. Definitely not my style and something I would never live or buy into.

I like the idea of a men's clothing store, preferably consignment now that the Dressed To Suit shop near 121 Street closed a few years ago.
E-gaming venue sounds good.

My suggestions:
- bowling alley
- cat or dog cafe
- hardware store

Actually a hardware store would be absolutely mint for the area, especially for all of the condo dwellers who don't need to make a trip out to Home Depot on 111/Groat Road. To that extent, I think an IKEA Planning Studio (like the one in London) would be pretty neat for that same target market as well.

Another entertainment option would be really good as well, I like the e-Gaming or bowling alley idea too.

Basically anything that complements the urban dwellers in the area would be a good start. The place should be walkable and people should want to go street-level to get what they need. I hope the retail bays are given some thought of what kind of neighborhood they want to create. No more cannabis, hair studios, or pharmacies please.
