Is the Distillery about to get another soaring condo?

Plans are afoot to bring another soaring condo to the Distillery District. Already home to a number of recent developments, including the smart-looking Pure Spirit condos, the south end of the former industrial area could soon feature a 57-storey KPMB-designed tower. Urban Toronto has the early info on this one, which would be built on a portion of the Distillery that's currently home to a parking lot and effectively enclose the space by blocking off the view and sound of the nearby Gardiner Expressway and rail corridor.

If the early renderings are any indication, the project will feature an elongated podium (what the designers call "a ribbon building") scaled to the height of the historical buildings on the west side of which the tower will rise. Designed by KPMB for Dundee Realty and Cityscape Development Corporation, the development looks like it could make a nice addition to the increasingly touristy neighbourhood without taking much (if anything) away from the historical makeup of the District.

What do you think of the early plans for the development?
