Rogers Centre

What's the worst name for a building in Toronto?

Names matter. Just ask all those proud folks who live in the Junction Triangle, a neighbourhood that prior to a few years ago lacked an official designation. It's impossible to build an identity in the absence of nomenclature. Likewise, the wrong name can rob a place of the status that it might deserve.

Recently, I got to wondering about the worst-named building in Toronto. We posed the question to our Twitter followers and rounded up the responses. Here are some candidates for the worst-named building in Toronto.

1. Rogers Centre
2. Bohemian Embassy
3. Chazz Condos
4. Success Tower
5. DNA Condos
6. M5V Condos
7. Yonge + Rich (under construction)
8. Residences of the World Trade Centre
9. King Blue Condos
10. Republic of Yonge and Eglinton
