Excellent render! I'm disappointed that the height has been chopped down.

I counted about 66 floors + a design feature on the top worth a few floors, and the podium floors appear to have high ceilings.

My eyes hurt... do yours? That's a good sign though, when counting floors. It means that the building is tall. Which we like. I think. Right? Yeah.

Long live urbanity.

To be honest, height isn't even close to being my main goal for urbanity. Urbanity and height are two different things.

But still, this tower looks to be a pretty exciting project, shall it proceed.

Nice ... a good balance of blending and contrasting with the other towers and a much improved base.

I'm a sucker for height though, couldn't they throw a hockey stick on top to make it 200m.

Yup, this one is a winner. Good example of the Toronto style with just a bit of a twist.

Those kinds of polished renderings tend to look much better as renderings...than finished buildings. Not that Spire isn't a decent building, but it had the same problem...unrealistic renderings.

The facade will never look that "seamless".

Well yea...it is "possible" to build that top with a mirror finish, where the mullions are basically invisable. But how much do you want to bet it will end up with standard windows, frames and mullions?

Well I figured that being part of College Park, it'd be swanked up... but you're probably right.
