Exactly. Any more renders?

That said this building looks nice from what has been constructed already, it seems to have very high quality glass. Though I can't see how white and blue is '90s' at all. Someone doesn't know their decades.

That is the beauty of it. I think instead of competing with Aqua it compliments and contrast perfectly with Aqua. If it was a stand alone tower I think it would be a high quality project but giving how it contrast with the buildings around I put in the very good ledger.

Not the best contrast IMO, it is not remotely as elegant and stylish as Aqua.

That's a lot of floors for a 425 ft building. 8 ft ceilings are pretty low for a highrise building.

Wow, this thread is still alive

I thought someone had deleted it. But why was the first post edited? All of the information about the masterplan is gone now.

Anyway, there is a new GEMS World Academy school proposed for Lakeshore East. One building will go to the south of the Coast and another school will go to east of Coast. This of course means that the Arquitectonica tower is dead.

bKL Architecture

GEMS Phase 1 (K-4) will be to the south of Coast, opens 2013

Phase 2 (5-12) will be to the east of Coast, opens 2014





GEMS' total capacity is about 2000 students total. Since this is a private school, the developer must still eventually build a public elementary school in the Lakeshore East area.

Yeah, for some reason, the first post was blanked out so I just inserted a picture and fresh titles. Thanks for the new info!

NOOOOO! Very sad news if so. I was really hoping to see Arquitectonica and Aqua in the same view!
