I count at least 23 floors.

What part is the new re-clad - the top or bottom ?

They're just making it look like a slightly different building from the 1970s.

I think the top part is....that's generally how recladding projects go....(from the top). This reclad looks almost unnecessary on a design point, except for efficiencies sake.

I think it was a typo - this tower has 25 floors, not 15.

I generally don't like major design changes with reclads. They seldom turn out better. See photo above. I like how the Vancouver tower looks except for the white spandrel used on the corners.

I can't see how this will be more effecient. They are going to have ago constantly run the hvac system for half they year because of the clear glass, it's going to be an oven inside otherwise. Stupidest thing for a city that wants to be green to allow buildings to use clear glass

Correct, my clumsy fingers hit a 1 instead of a 2. The tower is 25 storeys.
