According to Ed at UT regarding the Bay-Adelaide Centre:

"Street entrance for parking garage through the elevator core is now fenced off. Traffic signs for the closure of Adelaide are now onsite. And the Ellis Don guy I ran to on the street tonight said demolition has begun!"

Bay Adelaide rendering from Ellis Don. Very RBC/Ritz.

^ wow.. it suddenly doesn't look that bland when it's rendered. Well, at least less bland. But I like it!

Bay/Adelaide looks a whole lot better. Now where have I seen these architectural atributes before? Possitive because I would hate to have a major development in the city that I couldn't support.- ice

Nothing new with BCE3

just reversing a mistake I made when updating the database

(although some of its foundations are in place, it never actually broke ground or had construction cease. And, eventhough 'unbuilt' would be more appropriate, I still have faith)

Far too early to change the status of Bay Adelaide to construction as well but 14 years of passing the stump pretty much maxed out my patience


and that, my friends, is an inside look of the inner workings of goodlookin's mind (minus the T&A)

its beautifull, i love it. But aaarrrrggghhh!!! I just altered the diagram to make it more realistic yesterday, now im going to have to alter it agian lol. I think the top and right side will have to be changed to look more like the rendering. And as for the over all look, i might have to get rid of some "lines" and smooth out the outer surface more.
Maybe i dont need to do all that much..i dunno, no sense in changing the diagram 1 billion times because we wont know what its truley going to look like until its built.

And yes it looks very much like the RBC

lol, i see, i can agree with that, i think everybody's patience is wearing thin, so many tall towers proposed and not one is offiicially U/C yet!

I wish they had gone with the previous design, with the setbacks, it was much more interesting. Taller too...

Bay-Adelaide Construction

Walked by the BA Site and they have closed off the north lane on adelaide street (South side of the building site) and closed off the south lane of temperance (North side of the building site). Concrete barriers and fences are up and ellis don was hoisting its sign on the fence. They also closed off the bay adelaide stump (elevator core) and have what looks like the beginning of demolition equipment.

Unbelievable...
Ok, all that glass is nice, but they turned the BA center into a box.
I was hoping for more then just another glass box in the skyline.

the historic facade they're leaving on that Bay adelaide building looks out of place, awkward, and unnecessary. a facadectomy if i've ever seen one. yes, the tower is sleek tho. but fix that bottom.

I kind of liked the previous proposal for BA more. Pretty sleek, but a little bland architecturally.
