Those dark vertical stripes and the overall massing of the building is very First Canadian Place-like, which is a good thing.

Basically the same general floorplan. Mind you I find this to be a much better all around building and the crown treatment is mint.

I prefer FCP to this building, but they're not all that comparable other than floor plate shape. FCP is on a completely different scale; there's likely double the floor space at least.

FCP is an enormous building. New cladding really hides the huge floorplates.

I don't know why, but I didn't think this building was as tall as it actually is when in plain sight of it but from a distance - partially from it's topographic location - holy crap! Such a view from the DVP!
