The design could be better, but I'm glad they've added a hotel component and that the five levels of above ground parking are going underground.

I wonder if some of these changes are happening to suit the needs of a particular office tenant.

Noticed that they have GGLO from Seattle listed as the architect. Looking at their portfolio they have some very interesting public and rooftop spaces. Looks like a good choice for such a multi-layered project.

Great changes! More varied heights, no more above-ground parking, addition of a hotel.

Interesting that they're increasing the amount of office space at the expense of fewer rentals. That seems like a counter intuitive decision based on current downtown RE trends, but there must be a reason behind it. Perhaps they've got interest from a potential office tenant who needs more room?

Clearly the Seattle architect got the memo "This will be in Ottawa - make sure it looks like a box".

If approved I'd say pretty good. Residential units are mostly (if not all) rentals which is currently needed in the market. They shouldn't have too much trouble finding a hotelier who is willing to take on 150 rooms and the office space isn't that expansive (short of 200,000 square feet, so about the size of the shorter WEP tower). Retail could be a little more tricky, but that is Trinity's specialty.

I could see the 25,000 sqft grocery doing well there. If a footbridge/bike bridge was built across to Wellington West the retail could complement under-serviced niches in Hintonburg. That south side could have made for an interesting continuation of the main street but I guess they need a substantial loading dock. The bike shop and pet grooming is an interesting idea, though.

Wow, I like the height and the designs aren't too bad. I do hope it's good quality materials though. It looks like some dark/black reflective glass, which would be SO cool and different for Ottawa.

Fingers crossed

I'm loving this proposal. Feels and looks big city. Assuming the materials are high quality, this could be a game changer for the city.

So Tower 1 would be:
Taller than the tallest in Montreal by 89 feet
Taller than the tallest in Vancouver by 103 feet
Taller than the tallest in Edmonton by 132 feet
Third tallest in Calgary (only 12 feet shorter than The Bow)
Tenth tallest in Toronto (only 6 feet shorter than Ice II and only 130 feet shorter than AURA)
Taller than Absolute World 1 in Mississauga by 186 feet

Won't be taller then the JW Marriott and Stantec Tower in Edmonton.

But point is, yeah if these heights remain, Ottawa will be taken to another level.

It's 132 feet taller than JW Marriot, and Stantec isn't finished yet but it will only be 61 feet shorter than Stantec if built to the new spec.

Don't forget that Edmonton's Alldritt tower becomes Canada's tallest outside of Toronto. I am hoping the Trinity project gets approved, but I have a feeling it will be met with great opposition now that they are going for 65 floors.
