^the one nice thing about the building as is is the scale. It doesn't swallow up too much street frontage for minimal interaction. Ideally a bunch of narrower projects would pop up and fill in the gaps. One day we too can have projects like that tooth pick fronting central park lol

CentreVenture put up the tiniest, most ridiculous for sale sign on the south side of the St. Regis. The font is so small it's nearly impossible to read. Good luck team.

At least they fixed up the brochure, which had embarrassing errors in labeling. Like they weren't from Winnipeg and didn't know the streets.

I saw it from the skywalk... the print is comically small. I have pretty good eyesight but the only words I could make out were "Smith Street".

If you wanted to make the least conspicuous for sale sign possible, using that as your model wouldn't be a bad idea.

^Yeah, it also completely blends into the mural. Why wouldn’t they put one on the Smith side? It’s like whoever is in charge of this project is doing everything for the first time.

It's been repurposed in Patent 5 Distillery opening on Alexander and Lily beside Nonsuch next month. A great addition to Waterfront North.

That would be copyright infringement.

The site has article posting rules:
http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/showthread.php?t=175132

Though with lack of moderation on these boards it has not been enforced much lately.

The lawyer at the end of the article basically says 'well we told them there's risk and voila, here we are. Too bad so sad.'
