I love this. It's still made of squares, but it's visually more attractive.

I find it genuinely upsetting. Like... pick a fucking facade. Don't ask a focus group or something to choose the design and when they can't make up their mind just shrug and go with both. wtf...

Great pic! It is amazing how much more mature and solid Vancouver looks with the Shangri-La, Trump, and now Vancouver House rising above the table top. Also good to know that several more pinnacles are on their way!

None.. of that looks at all like anywhere in Calgary. I wish we had that kind of density outside of the core. That is Toronto's Yorkville in the foreground and Eglinton in the background. If anything, the background part looks very similar to the Edmonton skyline, with two dominant towers above a bunch of short towers, and a spread out similar to Oliver, just without Pearl.

Now that is a beautiful use of telephoto. Very beautiful shot. Aren't those hills like 130 km away in like New Hampshire?
