ZIGG Condos are part of a trend on St. Clair West, one that should put to rest all that idiotic talk about the street being a "disaster" in the wake of the streetcar ROW being built. The development along this street over the last few years has been profound, and ZIGG joins a number of midsize developments that have been announced of late. The 11-storey condo joins a cluster around St. Clair and Avenue that also features the under-constructionImperial Plaza.
From an architectural standpoint, the main feature here is the graduated terraces, which create a pyramid-type shape at the south end of the building (which also happens to sport the best view). While the north-facing side of the development isn't altogether that noteworthy, it's hardly ugly either. This building will fit into the neighbourhood without casting too long of a shadow over the predominantly residential homes to the south and west.
