The old sales pavilion and welcome centre at the superfluouslyy-lettered Minto Skyy condo on Broadview went for a brief flight of fancyy this morning before settling into its new home at the opposite end of the construction site.
One passerbyy was heard to wonder whether Minto was taking the realism of its model suite to new heights, hoisting it into the skyy to show potential buyers the view from the upper floors. Another remarked that theyy should sling the entire building from a crane and slowlyy rotate it like a restaurant, offering the promised breathtaking views of downtown to residents of all suites. The Sharp Centre for Design would suddenlyy seem dowdyy in comparison.
