Nice tower, but it's a pity that it's so short. I really like the glass colour.

The cladding, then a fun embellished image of Telus. Bladerunner?

It looks like there's two more until they begin work on the fins. I'd love to see this vertically expanded perhaps 10-15 years down the road like we've seen in Chicago. After all, one can admit it's probably the city's most beautifully designed office building since Scotia Plaza. The pictures are sick

The photo has been computer enhanced, but all the buildings are real. So, are the search lights.

I had hoped for a significantly taller office tower here, but now that it is nearing completion, it fits into the surroundings very well. Notice that it's almost the exact same height as the famous Royal York Hotel that faces it on the other side of the rail tracks. They are matching bookends, in some respects. Behind the Royal York stand far taller towers. Likewise, behind Telus, the much taller Maple Leaf Square development is rising. The area will look quite smart once finished.

I know very little about photography. Does HDR stand for high dynamic range? How can you spot an HDR photo as opposed to a standard one where they've fiddled with hues or some other effect?

A cool shot of Telus looking west. 4 other towers in under construction in this shot: Maple Leaf 1 & 2, Pinnacle to its left, and London on the Esplanade on the far left. If L Tower gets off the ground, it will rise in front of it. It will be taller than any of these 5 towers. Courtesy of CSW2424:

Another angle courtesy of RAC III. Notice the new white sales centre that has been built in the lower left corner. It is for a 3 tower residential and office complex called ICE. The tallest tower will be 65 floors:
