I think Tony at SSP was messing around with the diagrams chart to match the agressive marketing coming out of Bazis and tagged the tower at 309 Meters.

i doubt it will be this tall, it may come in around 250 -275 Meters at the tallest.

If the floor# changed the height inevitably changed...it wouldn't make sense to lower the ceiling height to fit more units-that would affect the units that've ALREADY SOLD. So the tower will definetly be over 223m .

It looks just over 230m on the diagram. The point beeeinnggg?

Gosh, out of all talls since I joined the previous forum in 2001, I've seen a few design changes, and now multiple anouncements on height decreases and increases. So much drama.

Just build the frikken thing! lol

no lets not build the freakin thing. This is some world class real estate...Anything under 280m(to roof) would be a waste of potential..

I haven't seen that yet. Thanks a lot Caltrane!

The base is much better looking. I hope those brown and white panels turn out good.

I like the top... Let's hope it's over 300m! Canada's first supertall! It will be even more cool if this thing is taller than Q1 or Eureka!

I see, but tallest in the Commonwealth would be nicer! That's a title that usually goes to Canada, but Malaysia has it now. Q1 is more realistic though. I don't see anything in Canada rivalling Petronas except a possible Manulife tower. It would need to be >1483ft. Manulife is a big firm, so not not unthinkable that they would go that tall.

They are simply rumours, but it does seem like an eventuality. Toronto based Manulife is the 5th largest insurer in the world, yet has no signature headquarters building that mirrors it's size. The rumour mill talked of Canada's tallest office tower which would put it over 1000 ft. Fun to ponder, but it really isn't worth speculating on at this point.
