The models really give you a feel of how good these could look.

Agreed, the balconies don't look nearly as pronounced as they did in the render. Still would prefer without but what can you do.

People down by the lake want balconies, even over 900ft up.

Anyone make out the heights?

I don't see any sense in the balconies. They are just going to cut into the floor plan that already loses efficiency on the elliptical shape. They'd be a lot more versatile as an enclosed space perhaps with some larger windows/ sliding glass openings.

So are these buildings actually going to have brown incorporated or is that just for presentation.

Unfortunately no. Still a win if Pinnacle builds these. The tall one is one of H+P's better inspired designs.

Re the tallest tower: in the architectural drawings, 307.05 is listed as the height of the roof slab of the mechanical penthouse. In the renders and models, however, there seems also to be a parapet above that point. Of course, I may be reading and seeing wrongly or this may be such an early point in the process that nothing is completely fixed.

The 65 storey tower reminds me a lot of One Bloor East. If the cladding is as good as that one, it won't look bad at all.

Hi everyone, long time member that has never posted. What are the twins in white to the east of this proposal?

The towers directly to the east are part of a VERY preliminary proposal by a developer for the 55 Lakeshore East lands (LCBO lands). Those two towers are set to be built over some older heritage buildings. The renders and deisngs are very much preliminary, so they'll likely change in massing and design.

It's going to be the world's first wooden super tall.

Did anyone else notice the part about the "mass-tuned-damper" in the crown of the tallest tower? I'd like to hear more about that...

Made in Canada. Seriously! RWDI out of Guelph is a world leader in tall tower dampening.
