"City settles for good in place of great..."
November 18, 2006 | Christopher Hume | Toronto Star
In the same article Hume describes 180 Queen Street West, a new office tower designed by Tom Payne, as "a triumph" while questioning the city's and the federal government's planning processes which both architect and critic lament kept the project from being great.

Nevertheless Hume praises the design: "It represents an attempt at nothing less than the reinvention of the contemporary tower. Gone is the rigid geometry that has defined corporate architecture since Ludwig Mies Van der Rohe...In its place, Payne has introduced a more contextual approach, one that allows a building to reflect the realities that surround it."
