I don't see how. This design is just a box too.
Not meaning that in a negative way, it is very nice and I think it fits perfectly with Toronto.

Spot on Culwulla. The spire will reach 325 while the antenna on FCP will still be 355m.

It is going to be a Hotel-Condo mix.
It will be in direct competition with Ritz-Carlton, 4 Seasons, Shangrila. All should finish around 2009-2010.

The height is 1,064 ft. spire (324.3m) 988 ft. roof (301.1m) according to Urban Toronto: http://p083.ezboard.com/ftorontoskys...cID=5085.topic

This figure was likely obtained from the latest planning doc.

The old planning doc is here (with old height):
http://www.toronto.ca/legdocs/2003/a...121/it010b.pdf
but there was a slight height increase after that document was released. I remember Mr. Man announced it awhile back.

DAmn, this building is beautiful. You could even say from the side it evokes the GE building in NY, with its staggering and such. annnd it changes appearance from different angles. congrats toronto

It's a shame that it isn't taller. It would have made TO's skyline look much better to have one tower, in the middle of that great cluster, that really stands above the rest. The cluster will definitely be enhanced by this building but there are too many towers of similar height. There will be more chances in the future though.
