Isn't that exactly what it'll look like unless this third tower somehow goes belly-up ?

The rendering of the individual tower is the latest one that we have, there has been an application to increase the height of the building so I'm sure it will look slightly different when it is complete. The ice district rendering below has an older version. All three towers will get built. There is a tower planned to go up where the old Baccarat Casino is, however I think they will assess the market before going ahead with it.

The old building is currently being demolished to make way for the tower.

Condo tower for artists in Quarters gets green light

Arts groups proposing a tower of live-work units in The Quarters area of downtown Edmonton say the go-ahead from the city is a milestone, but the next step will be to win support from the federal and provincial governments.

Council approved a zoning change to permit the development in the neighbourhood during a public hearing at city hall Monday afternoon.

Are they going to be faking the old building at the base of the McLaren?! The renders clearly show it as the podium, yet they flattened it...

They will be reconstructing the facade into the new building. The same thing will be done with the Artists Habitat.

Proposed 80-storey tower would smash Western Canada height records

East downtown residents are getting word they could one day have a record-breaking neighbour. Alldritt Land Corp. is pitching an 80-storey mixed residential tower that could end up as much as 29 metres taller than the Ice District’s 251-metre Stantec tower, still under construction, but billed as the tallest tower in Western Canada. Public open house notices went out this week and quickly spread on social media. “Whatever they are smoking, I want some,” said one commenter on the Riverdale Facebook group. The Alldritt Tower is planned for contaminated land just up the hill from Louise McKinney Park and includes a public park connection between the Shaw Conference Centre and the river valley.

Here is the rest of the article: http://edmontonjournal.com/news/loca...height-records

We now have some images of Alldritt Tower!

This is the base of the tower, keep in mind that those buildings behind the tower do not exist.

This is what the tower might look like in the skyline.

Well, it turns out that those fins on the City of Edmonton tower do have LED lights!
Here is a picture of them testing it out using what appears to be an animated Canadian flag.
