Thanks.

Hmmm, those photovoltaics will work well behind the proposed 425 ft Georgia Gateway Towers.

Either way it looks good for a rental building. Incomparable to the first Aquilini Centre tower.

With your comparison of dressing the Canaccord tower in pinstripes to make it slimmer, I think tower one is Jabba the Hutt dressed in a Trump brand balloon suit.

Balcony glass installation looks almost complete so I think this is pretty close to the final look.

Looks nice. Fits the area well. Reminds me of Miami highrise architecture.

I think this one turned out very well. Goes to show you don't need to break the bank to design a smart looking condo tower.

If the city USC all about reducing solar gain etc I wonder why they don't seem to encourage opaque balcony glass?

Hopefully tower 3 continues the trend line

Great update as per usual mcminsen!

I really love how this project turned out. It gives me great hope for the third tower to come, and helps make amends for how terrible the first building looks.

I do wonder how much of it will be visible from SEFC once the NEFC plan is realized, but such is the pace of change.

So it looks like those sliding glass doors on the north side have interior railings.

It's sort of crazy how the first building and this are both part of the same development........much less on the same planet. Night and day.

I like the wood on the underside of the tower.
