It's been often said that Are Be doesn't know his duck's arse from a .....



BTW, Minto Midtown is starting sales of the taller north tower in a few weeks, which apparently has "regrown" the 2 storeys that were lopped off at the OMB... it's advertised as 53 storeys. Interestingly they have dumped the monicker "The Pointe" in favour of Quantum 2.

THIS looks much better indeed!

I really did wish they use more colour variety then green/blue. But otherwise very beautiful and adds immensily to the skyline. With all the other buildings (that are not green) potentially being added on the western portion of the skyline, it could blend well with Cityplace colours. When looking at some of the future renderings of T.O., you can get a better grasp of how Cityplace can in fact blend in nicely.

Well, when it comes to Vancouver style Cityplace condos, there really isn't much to other than blue and green glass. Here's hoping that it would be either a darker green or a nice shade of blue glass and not the greyish-teal that HVE has. Also, more architectural variety would be nice, so far everything has been cylindrical or square/rectangular.

It was a joke, as indicated by "JK", pretty lame, but a joke. Those condos are selling like hot cakes, they will not be vacant.

The Vancouver design maximizes window area (people want to have good views of the lake), basically function over design. Concord has been successful with this method, I don't see them changing. Whatever happens, these towers should be a positive addition to the waterfront skyline.

What's the extra - non-existent, at least at its location - building that has been added in to the picture between Harborview Estates I and II?

Apex?


I'm pretty sure that nothing has been added that doesn't already exist.

Maybe I'm just imagining it, but the perspective doesn't look right to me. Apex II looks like it's located on the sales centre site in that picture.
