They weren't actually spires, rather ribbings from the fins on top. The render was very misleading.

Most people on the Toronto forums agree with you. They keep altering the design so who knows what they'll end up with.

they are completely redesigning this tower, and all we have so far is this floorplan, and a description of the building posted by deranged on Urban Toronto:



Quote:
Went in with a person who works for Tridel and saw the floor plans of the re-design work in progress. It's indeed going to be like the marilyn Monroe building where the base is wide, narrows in the middle, and is wider on the top again. Instead it will not be circular, but a rectangle with a thin side and a fat side.
Project will be finalized and VIP sales will be in September after E Condo sales wrap up.

As per above, the main building is no longer a square, it will be a similar shape as the triangular base.
10 units per floor. 8 elevators in total - 4 high rise, 4 low rise.

The largest unit "protrudes out of the building and will have a view of south west and north. It's 900 sw ft.
The smallest unit is a bachelor unit at 488 sq ft.


Each floor will have 5 x 1bdrm units, 1 bachelor, 2 x 3bdrm, 1 x 1+den, and the 2+ den large "protruding" unit on the west side.

Tridel is emphasizing this will be one of the iconic buildings of the Toronto skyline. I'm so exited for it.

Can't really tell much from that rendering, but it looks promising.

Wow! The new rendering is nice! Something new for Toronto.

Btw, why is this thread only 2 pages? It's one of the most important buildings in Toronto, I would expect more people talking about it. Guess not.

This one is now 224m and 65 floors, but here are some new renderings:

From Tridel

It was so much nicer before. I suppose these NIMBY's think their views are now preserved with a 10 floor reduction? This has accomplished nothing besides an inferior building.

Looks great, really adds to the skyline. I wonder how loud it gets if you open a window or go out on a balcony.

To me, it looks like a monolithic slab - much like Chicago Trump (which isn't a bad thing).

I don't have any hope in Tridel really. There may be some curtainwall, but at this time it just looks bland for some reason. I can't put my eyes around it.

With the way buildings in Toronto work, they will probably just announce a 'surprise' addition of 10-15 floors when they're midway done as long as they think they can sell more units. They probably voluntarily reduced the height as they see the market winds changing and to temporarily quell the NIMBY protest so that they can strike later.

Perhaps, but its the design I'm disappointed with. This was a proposal that went back to the drawing board because the city wanted something special built here, but what we got is nothing ground breaking or remotely better than what's down the street.
