I've always loved the skyline of Vancouver....with it's gorgeous backdrop it surpasses most everything we have here in the states for shear beauty. Glad to see this tower go up....it fits the city very nicely.

Fantastic update shots guys!

It is the tallest in Vancouver. In a few years, there will be another tower almost as tall as the Ritz gets built.

Wow! Thanks a lot! It looks great, and there goes the crane.... The "W" condos on the left side in the seabus pic are really starting to make an impact, too!

Woodwards is massive now. You really should checkout SSP: Local Vancouver for detailed updates of all buildings:

I must say... this is a beautiful building! I had no idea Vancouver was building something like this. Absolutely stunning!

Skymaster, your shot is pretty washed out, but at least it shows this baby pretty much complete. Thanks all the same.

Whatever happened to the crane op who gave some good pics from the top? - or was that SSP? Anyway, I hope skyscraper tower love just flows and grows from here!

Vancouver is due some real beauties, because they've had to endure some real crap for a long time. Go high and go innovative! There's no lack of local talent either, my friends!....
