This is the pic taken from the Monarch website, it's missing the render for the building and I don't know why. I have the render from the latest condo guide but for some reason I'm having trouble uploading images from my computer onto the website. :(

In the render I counted 35s and extra mechanicle floors which add up to about 36/37s. I wonder if this is part of the "Town centre Court" development which includes STC's tallest 38s and two more towers 34/29s.
And judging by how equinox turned out, I'm not exactly excited by this tower.

The base looks bulky but the tower is alright. That first pic doesn't even look like SCC. Is this a twin?

No that is STC, the twins in the background are the 2 equinox towers, the current tallest towers in STC at 37s. And you can also see 360 in the background too.

HAHA. What I meant was just that it didn't look like SCC because it looked good! It looks more like LA to me in that pic. The area is definitly growing up.

The twins reference was if EQ1 had another phase like Equinox.

Went by SCC this weekend. Looking super dense. The Equinox towers look much much taller than 30ish stories probably because of squat STC. The Ellipse towers also add greatly to the area.

Ha! We should stick this in the faces of LA forumers. Wouldn't that be something, having a suburban skyline that's just as good as LA's :bleh: :cheers:

I'm not really sure if EQ1 will have an EQ2, there is a development in STC called "Town centre court" but I'm not sure if its this. If it is then there would be 3 towers (38,34,29). I think the developer would also be Monarch.
And STC still has a lot of growing up to do, across the street from the mall on Brimley is a bunch of old factories that make the area look depressing, but that's just Scarboro. :sleepy:

It's kind of weird how Ellipse is actually so far away from Equinox and the main cluster. Equinox has the height but it looks pretty bad, not what I anticipated it to look like.

Yes, I admit from upclose Equinox leaves something to be desired... If only Ellipse swapped places and heights :). From afar.. they just look massive.

Ellipse would make a much more beautiful Sapphire Tower.

^ The good thing is that tourists and suburbanites driving by the 401 can envy the lucky homeowners who have bought into the Ellipse..:D

Hehe, the views must be amazing though::D

South - Sprawl + commie blocks + distant lake + a tiny spec of downtown

North - Highway, and most of the above^.;)

Some info on EQ1 At Equinox:

336 units in a 35 storey building
The architect is Graziani & Corazza
$268 psf average

EQ1 is the third building in the five phase Equinox development by Monarch. The development should total about 1,600 units when complete. Equinox 1 was 37 storeys with 340 units while Equinox 2 was 37 storeys and 349 units - these projects were launched in the summer of 2002 and are sold out with occupancies in the summer and early fall this year.

Equinox 1 and 2 are located on a former parking lot on the west side of Albert Campbell Square and the Civic Centre. The last three buildings in the Equinox Development will be located on a parking lot on the east side of Albert Campbell Square. These plans included an expansion of the public square directly north of EQ1.

It never ceases to amaze me that there are people who suck back condos in areas like this like candy. Oh well, better than the alternative I guess...good thing there are people who wanna live around there.

Here's a better render of the 35 storey tower. I think that it looks better and a lot more distinguishable than Equinox. Equinox seems to be just two tall slabs of ugly precast and green glass, while this one seems a bit better.

Good thing that there are people who want to live in Scarboro, Mississauga, Barrie, North York, Etobicoke and so on. Else there would be no developments anywhere and cities would not grow.

Too many wealthy NIMBYS -- see the lefty wealthy in the Annex, the Beach, Sackville Ave., etc. These Marxist environmentalists, with their BMWs and SUVs, have a huge hate on for those who cannot afford to live downtown, and thus, strongly oppose developments that may bring new people into their predominantly white enclaves.
