^ Exactly the building I was thinking of when I wrote that post.
The Jukebox looks fantastic, even though the massing on its own is pretty terrible.
The Wave fails on all three counts, for instance.
I've criticized it every which way but when you get right down to it I just wish there was no setback on any of the commercial units and that the height of the ground floor was more consistent with the older storefronts right beside it.
I'll pay the Wave a compliment: I like how the building has a strong "blue glass" effect. Victoria's examples of such are few and far between, which makes even a straightforward specimen like the Wave seem more distinctive than it otherwise would. If there were 20 or 30 of them around town then I suppose it would be a different story.

The Wave might just have the worst ground floor on any CoV high-rise since View Towers.
