This will be the third tower over 150 metres in this not so long ago nondescript corner of Metro-Vancouver.

Tower height of 406’ is a typo, it is actually 161 metres.

The U/C tower just the northwest is 162 metres.

Another recent proposal adjacent to this proposal (Burquitlam Park) is 155 metres.

Cheapened, but fitting for where it is

Now that this Missingsausage project is selling into it's second tower, new renders have come, and it fits the area perfectly:

Why does Mississauga keep doing this? Building towers set back from their main artery. The towers look fine but the should be rotated 180 degrees so the set backs are on the Hurontario side.

Keep in mind this render is really quite inaccurate. The third tower will be right along Hurontario, not the second. This proposal in its entirety is quite poorly planned, but I could care less for where it is.

Looks like Sim City.

This is also Sim City-esque.

That Montreal proposal looks pretty fair. Architecturally it's subtle, but the middle part looks the most structured/alright. It respects it's location.

The Mississauga proposals do look a little sim cityesque, but I don't mind them actually. They're not spectacular by any means, they look sleek enough that they may work. The edge tower 2 reminds me of buildings in Rotterdam a bit.
They appear as though they are fronted on Hurontario from the render. Mississauga gets a lot of flack on the forum, but the city has to work with what it has knowing it was a flawed design to begin with. There has been some progress on streetscapes, but a lot of patience it seems is needed.

What gets built in Mississauga is definitely SimCity-like and cold. I think it's a decent theme though, it suits the city well. Realistically we don't have much heratige or classic looking stuff (save for maybe Port Credit or Streetsville) and all of the buildings that try to emulate it look like crap, so it's not a bad look to go glassy and ultramodern when basically building everything from scratch.

It's definitely not perfect in the way of streetscape planning and it never will be because of the nature of the city, but at least we can still make the towers look alright. I hope streetscaping improves in the future.

Also, the two Edge buildings are incorrectly rendered, the tallest (phase 3) is supposed to be the one fronting Hurontario street, the flat top one is supposed to be the middle, unless they've changed that.

I think you're right.. that's how i remember it too.. Phase 3, the tallest should be fronting Hurontario along the future LRT

Yeah, the shortest one is right next to a park on the one end of the property and the tallest is the one on Hurontario. They definitely screwed up the rendering. For this project, I've been disappointed with the cost cutting and lack of quality control with the renderings. I'm sure the towers will look good but I prefer the previous designs that they had for them.

Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill reveals skyscraper for 160 Front Street in Toronto

Bridget Cogley | 12 July 2018 8 comments
Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture has unveiled plans for a glass office tower in Downtown Toronto, the latest in a string of skyscrapers proposed for the city.

160 Front Street will rise 46 storeys close to the Entertainment District and the iconic CN Tower. The area is already dense with skyscrapers, but several more have been unveiled for this and other parts of the city over the past year.

That One Delisle tower is freaking awesome. Unique, but in a good way not a crappy way like buildings trying to be different normally end up.

A new design for "BlueSky Metrotown," or 5977 Wilson Avenue in Burnaby.

The tower is designed by Gensler.

Sherbrooke is on fire right now! These three major projects have been announced in the last two weeks alone, which is very unusual here.


Abénaquis Bridge

While it was announced a few months ago that the Grandes-Fourches Bridge would be moved to the west, the design of the new bridge has remained a mystery until the council approved the choice of a "signature" bridge two weeks ago. The two masts are standing for the francophone and anglophone settlers who worked together to build Sherbrooke, and the whole is supposed to be reminiscent of a wigwam, since the city was built on ancestral Abenaki lands. The cables are also intended to evoke a dreamcatcher.

This $36.6M project will be key to the future of this area, since it will allow the displacement and the transformation of a terrible-looking road into a new urban boulevard as well as the creation of a large park on the bank of the Saint François river.

Quartier Sainte-Famille

On the very next day, we learned that large swathes of useless lawn surrounding an old convent are to be filled with $70 million worth of buildings. The wooded part of the lot will be sold to the city so it can be added to the Mont-Bellevue Park, which is already Sherbrooke's largest.

Le Frontenac

Finally, we found out in today's edition of La Tribune that a new iteration of Le Frontenac, a rental project that has been in the air for years, would finally be built. This $6M project is much smaller than the first two, but it will be the first building of that scale to be built from scratch in downtown Sherbrooke in eons, so it looks like a rejoicing omen for the future of the area.
