For what it's worth I love Metropolis, incredible street wall and it will almost complete the commercial tourist trap that Dundas Square has turned into.

Some stuff being built in my town, Dundas (part of Hamilton)


Spencer Creek Village Condos

This is the third of four, here's roughly what it will look like, each building is a slightly different design

Amica at Dundas, retirement community

This looks really good, here's a rendering I got from their sales office:

The construction is moving quickly

Rents at Amica will range from $2700 to $4650 per month, not cheap!

Uh, the LED strip has also changed since the night rendering was made. It now has this criss-crossing pattern instead of just being a pole.

Here's a look so far:

I wish all the construction galleries were formatted like this, with small thumbnails, and we could choose which ones to display in full...

I have highspeed Internet, but it can still be slow going with huge digiphotos on the pages.

Heres a few from Cochrane, AB:

The new Firehall #51 (the only Firehall in town, but we got #51 due to agreements with Calgary Fire department), being built as a P3.http://www.compscience.info/public/i...51-mar20-1.jpg

Shangri-La (Vancouver) is going to be one of Canada's best lit up buildings when complete. I hope the lights on the Bay and Adelaide Tower will be as good.

vancouver is so lucky........... I think Shangri-la Vancouver is the second best under construction in the country right now.

I wish Shangri-la vancouver was in Toronto

vanman Mar 30, 2007 6:02 PM

You have your own Shangri-la, and its taller
