They are now on floor 43 of 48, almost there. :tup:
Dec 3, 2008, 5:08 AM
I thought there will be only 44 floors.

vancouver, what a city now that it has become. a true city with high end hotels. a fun land for the rich and sinful.
Dec 3, 2008, 8:30 AM
great updates, thanks.

I wish the facade was all one colour.

I like the variety in this curtain wall - as long as there isn't any biege or mauve in the mix.
That first pic looks like a bit of Shangri-La made its way onto the tower.

I like this tower, and for the area it is a good height (over 140 meters) which actually puts it in the top 10 for metro Vancouver i believe. It fits in well with the Shaw Tower. They compliment each other.

looks great from that angle. thanks for the pic.

Great shot. I'd never really noticed how tall the podium is along Cordova. I like it when they're a bit taller like that. I'd also never noticed those randomly placed metal beams on the left side of the podium. Anybody know what the story is with those?

Say that's a rare angle. It makes the Marine Building seem puny.
Looks good! Thanks for the pic.
Dec 13, 2008, 10:23 PM
Yeah, that is a very nice angle, thanks for the picture. Fairmont sure is giving some needed height in that area. Also look how nice Bental 5 is! I love that tower!
Dec 14, 2008, 12:37 AM
F*ck Fairmont! Bentall V looks awesome from that angle. If only it were 150ft taller.

^oh well, coulda stayed shorter!
i was downtown for the first time in a while today and this one really took me by suprise, coming in on the seabus.

So I got a brand new SLR (Canon Rebel XSi), but I have no idea how to use it yet; anyway, I managed a couple test shots of Fairmont on Auto mode. From today (Jan 1, 2009):

Totally unfair you guys had a clear sky today, though! Sheesh!
Jan 2, 2009, 6:29 AM
It only lasted an hour or two. I must have been a few minutes ahead of you, phesto.
Jan 2, 2009, 6:52 AM
Good thing this tower is in the 140m range, that whole area is full of stubs and this tower (along with shaw) have finally brought some decent hight to the waterfront.
Jan 2, 2009, 12:59 PM
Wow, its turning out much better than expected!
Jan 2, 2009, 9:27 PM
Jan 2, 2009, 10:57 PM
how many floors to go?
Jan 5, 2009, 7:27 PM
The snow slowed them down, they are still on 45/48.

Here's its current impact on the skyline (taken two days ago):

Love the convention center!
Jan 16, 2009, 2:00 AM
I'm interested in seeing how much impact it will have when topped off and how much shorter it will look then the Shaw Tower. I'm hoping it'll look pretty close, or even about the same from certain angles at least.

Some pics I took Saturday:
Underground parking entrance on the north side...

I walked around outside the lobby today. I think it's going to be quite striking. There are some nice lighting features all around the base of the building, including some red downlights near the entrance. And the trees they put in on the Burrard side have all been lit up. It also looks like there's going to be a water feature near the entrance. I can't believe I actually have something positive to say about this. It's probably because seeing the Sears building getting power-washed this morning put me in a good mood.

Whats with all the writing around the lover levels? that looks retarted, I hope it's not permanent.
Jan 28, 2010, 6:12 PM
I actually like the writing. Sure, it's kitschy, and may not hold up over time, but it's different, and draws attention to the structure and the architecture.
Jan 28, 2010, 8:11 PM
It's a public art installment. I think it's permanent though I'm sure easily enough removed if desired down the line. I don't think it looks especially amazing but, like colemonkee, I like it for being something different. Ads a little more variety to the streetscape, and you know what they say about variety... ;)

Are there any recent images of the skyline or of fairmont in the skyline?
And fairmont is opened already, is it not?
