I don't think there's any other renders besides the 2 on the first page of this thread.... Uptown is a real quite building especially considering it's height and location...

*** I did about the 2 tower speculation at Yonge-Bloor... To me i can imagine why people would think that because the site is very long along yonge street... But it's still hard to picture 2 towers in that site... that corner is just too important for 2 towers with nothing special about them... Unless their design is gonna be special or somethin... 65 and 55 stories is not bad though... maybe the 65 will be as tall as Scotia Plaza?.... ya never know...

65 floors on a residential tower would be close to 200M, about the same as Four Seasons will be

now back to Uptown...

Well that is depending on how high the ceilings will be on each floor... But yeah... best estimate for a residential tower would be around 200m...

-back to uptown fo real.

I took a day trip to Toronto today to get some photo updates and I arrived in the middle of a blizzard! Sorry for the quality.
Pic by me.

Crystal Blu and Uptown, and the empty 1 Bloor lot:

Crystal Blu sounds like a porn star's name.
