it is Shangri-La in Vancouver is under 200 m while the BA building is 215m. However big difference, the Vancouver building will add a lot to its skyline while the BA will just be one tower in a sea of already tall office towers.

Well....when viewing the skyline from behind, say Yorkville to the Lake, BA will add a lot to the skyline, as it will fill the gap between Scotia and FCP

Can we see photos from that event? Sort of exciting, considering that stump has become a part of the financial district

Its a shame Toronto keeps building boxy-like buildings. There are WAY more innovative designs to chose from.

With its prime location as an advantage, I think a more innovative design could change the Toronto skyline more dramatic than another boxy building which will join other boxy buildings.

That's a nice looking building... Frankly, except for a few innovative deisgns here and there (turning Torso being absolutely magnificent, for example), boxy is simply better than most other crap being put out there.

Plus, it gives you the most bang for your buck.....with the box design, the template of the land can be equal to that of the top floor....the maximium area.....

HAHAHA! Miller looks red in the face. He looks very tired and ragged.

Interesting render of the "view". I haven't seen that one yet. I thought that the lakeview would be mostly obstructed by Scotia Plaza / 44 King.
