Imagine how excited we'd be for the shorter tower if this were 2008. They'd probably be multiple threads in the highrises section.

Yeah, unless it's 200m+ nobody even cares anymore.

That's true. I remember being excited about ROCP I and II. I still like their aesthetic (cheap materials aside), though they are barely visible compared to 10 years ago.

19 Duncan

So per UT, 19 Duncan is well underway now, at least visually....hoarding is coming up on street apparently. Another near 200 metre tower will be u/c in Toronto...wow.

https://urbantoronto.ca/forum/thread....21066/page-15

As much as the design has altered from before and become less unique, I still have a soft spot for this site....might just be the vertical elements to the design that are making me like the towers design.....although the extruded box and cheaper looking top area is a disappointment. Very glad to hear about office space in this.....a lot of projects could use it in downtown. I'm glad these will be rentals, I completely forgot they would be.

Agreed, the design is looking a little cheaper now but the vertical elements tie the design together. It'll definitely suit the area, I hope it turns out well. Looking forward to the TargetPark lot right next to it eventually getting redeveloped too.

I was actually suggesting the whole parking lot or at least phase 1 and 2 which share a podium. 2 is the proposed supertall.

I also remember the excitement over the RoCP towers. Around 150m, so tall! Nowadays that hight would be basically infill.

The excitement was short lived once construction started. I actually think forumers would be a lot more welcoming of RoCP if built today. The cladding compares pretty well to the spandrel messes going up now.

I think it was RoCP. I recall a day when someone confused Geodetic heights with actual heights. Urbantoronto blew up for a hour or so.

Not sure if this render has already been posted but New Westminster will never look the same.

I was wondering, will this make New Westminster the smallest municipality in Canada to have a true skyscraper? (population is under 60 000 I think).

The population is 70,996 from the 2016 census but it does have a lot of high rises for it's population.

That indeed beats Niagara Falls, Pop. ~85 000 with the 53 floor Hilton Hotel at 162 metres.

No, the tallest tower is around 180m which is shorter than Trump Vancouver by 7.8m.

I appreciate your enthusiasm but be prepared for a lot of criticism for some of the statements you made on it.
