Adam Vaughan was surprised by the reaction the public meeting gave the design for the proposed new Globe and Mail tower.
"I haven't had a building this warmly received in six years," the six-year City Hall veteran says.
Vaughan says between 75 and 100 people were in attendance earlier this month when KPMB founding partner Marianne McKenna presented the firm's twisted L-shape design.
"It's a modest building," Vaughan says, referring the variances it will need from the city to get planning approval, "and the design is quite startling, and the animation for that corner above and beyond the current use is quite welcome in the neighbourhood." There will be 200,000 square feet of office space for the Globe and 20,000 square feet above and beyond that for another tenant. "So the live-work thing will get a real shot in the arm."
The audience consisted largely of local residents and members of the Wellington Place Neighbourhood Association.
