To answer those who have asked, the TJPA Board will select the winner on September 20. Just a couple more weeks to wait.

I'd like one good, REAL reason why the Rogers tower is not a good design. I don't understand, you look at a picture once and you've made up your minds...

That it looks vaguely similar to a fictional tower is NOT a good reason.

Thanks. So naming Hines/Pelli as the frontrunner & SOM definitely looks out!

All to be confirmed on the 20th Sept tho' as forumer peanut gallery posted.


The Pelli one is nice & safe, but looks like others around the world. The SOM proposal is pretty different to anything else, and may have become a true inconic landmark generating more tourist dollars in the longer-term. Oh well, keep it safe jury

Hines/Pelli design looks more conservative and simple. I guess they don't like new bold ideas. It is a pity.
