Yeah, it doesn't look big but the price sure is huge in today's market.

I wonder if the delay had to do with the bottom floors of the north-west corner of the building. At a glance it looked like it was gutted, exterior walls and all, or perhaps not? I know the lift was on that corner but it's a little odd for them not to finish the bottom levels before some of the ones above it?

Looks tall in that although in reality this tower ended up quite short for being 41 floors. I wonder what the official height is and what's the average room height in this building.

I think The coloured glass railing sections would've looked more dramatic if it was more than just one square

Unit heights were 8'6" and IIRC the building is a skipped floor building so the actual number of floors is less than 41.

35ish floors, I think, depending on how the penthouses are set up.

Is this one of the only buildings around Metro Vancouver (so far) with fritted glass on the balcony glass (next to the coloured panel)?
The fritt is higher up on the panels than Telus Garden (which just covers the slab).

Is there anyone here who purchased plan B and did their walk through? Would you be able to share your unit measurements with me?

Thanks!

Phone the developer! I'm not sure why you would think posting on here would be the way to get that info

I already did. They won't give it. Not the actual measurements at least.

Someone on here before said they purchase a unit same as mine. So I thought asking here would have a good chance of getting that info.

I'm not sure why you are so offended by my question. I understand excel informing me that the forum intended purpose is not for what I'm asking, but your outraged reaction to a simple question is quite confusing. And I'm not sure why you think it's farferch to ask that question here in this thread when there are some owners of this development posting in this thread before.

you need not take my comments as "outrage" so that should alleviate your confusion. I'm just echoing what excel said

There just seems to be a number of new accounts lately that use these threads to discuss their personal real estate purchases.

My advice: find the user who posted they have the same unit as yours and send them a private message. Often questions get drowned out in other banter before they get to see it.

This forum could easily get overrun with questions such as these and that takes away from discussion about the actual developments.

From dys architecture today:

The coloured panels on the balconies barely register - not nearly bold enough (colours are too similar to the spandrel colour).
The balcony glass would stand out more if it were more opaque (i.e. fritt).

Coloured fins being added.
Looks like there'll be 4 strips of fins.

Lipstick on a pig. I drove by today and I have to say the colored glass did not register at all and I was looking at the building! Only found about in here now...

I was recently looking at the DYS website and noticed they have a different render image than the one used by Polygon's marketing.


Image is owned by DYS Architecture and can be found here: http://dysarchitecture.com/projects/aldynne/

What's interesting is the DYS photo more accurately describes what the building actually looks like today ~ removing all the deep blue reflected night sky from the spandrel (comparing the polygon image).
