Nice looking condo tower.  Definitely an improvement over the original from a few years back.

Very very nice...An excellent design. Do we have to worry about Dr.Wood thinking it is "monstrous"?

Glad to see people are moving away from some of the awful towers of stucco that were being built everywhere in 2007.

Doesn't really matter.  The site was approved for a larger condo tower a few years back.

I wish this company could somehow get their hands on the unfinished tower on Bay St.  Wonder how much longer that will be tied up in litigation?

Exactly. Isn't this tower lower than what is allowed by the PUD too?

Also, regarding the "scale" thing. This site is located in the "urban transition zone" between Downtown and Riverside. Its a more appropriate location for a large tower than one that is primarily located in proximity to single family. Not that I'm against that project, just saying they aren't really comparable.

It's a shame these renderings don't include and extended riverwalk.

So what is that brick building that is currently at 500 Bishopgate?  It looks commercial...
