personally I prefer narrow, skinny buildings instead of long slabs. Much more sunlight is affected by a long slab. Narrow buildings may cast a slightly longer shadow in the non-summer months, but for not as long a period of time.
Also, one could argue that much of the space being wasted on this site is found by preserving the mansion and turning the parking lot in front of it into a public plaza/parkette.
Give me tall, narrow towers anyway if it makes it profitable to save a heritage building AND add public gathering space which is sorely needed all over downtown.
