The camouflaged utility structure on the roof will add a couple of floors optically I think.

Those are fantastic shots! Wow, keep them coming...wish I lived down there instead of in Kelowna. I'd love to be taking shots of the shangri-la. I've been following this project from conceptual design 5 or so years ago. From the models it looks like there's 2 more floors to be added then 3-4 floors of extended curtainwall to obscure the mechanical RTU's.

Is it topped out or are their still 1 or 2 floors to be made is the question? Watch the numinous web cam to find out.

As promised, here is a set of pics from the top of Shangri-la. Due to heavy winds this morning I was unable to go to the top level, so this are taken from the 2nd highest floor, I've left them uncompressed for now. Everyone is free to edit them and repost them as they see fit. Enjoy.

How did you get on Site to take those pics?! The Site supervisor usually doesn't let someone on site unless you're somehow involved with the project.... or in some way involved with the local authorities having jurisdiction..?!!

Mr. X
Since you seem to have some inside information on the project, do you happen to know how many more floors there are to be poured?...or is it now topped out to the penthouse and just the mechanical and elevator machine rooms are to be added. Wonder how much higher this tower will get?

i believe the building has topped. just the mechanical structure on the roof needs to be finished, which should add another 3-4 floors worth of height.

All we need next is a 825 footer and a 1000 footer to go next to it. But the city would never approve.

A thousand footer would be way too tall and would give it a "***** effect". I would max. out at 750-800 feet.

No it wouldn't because their would be a 850 footer beside it and also add a few 600 footers around. Then it should be alrite.
