^^ u r funny. anyhow. nice tower and it will complement the bow. too bad that it wasn't a tad taller though. i am getting a little short on the table top that is being developed at the east end of the skyline myself.

This has the potential to be one of the best skyscrapers on the continent. Gorgeous.

I doubt it will be the nicest skyscraper on the continent. Renders are always out of this world. The real proof is in the design and nobody will know that until it's built. I prefer the design of the Absolute Towers in Mississauga and the L Tower in Toronto myself, both of which outperformed the renders.

Time will tell.

absolute world looks squat imo and L tower is no big thing either? actually, i would prefer this to both of them. not that this one is a world beater itself. what i really like about this tower is the use of the cladding. it is different than any other in the nation.

Just checked out the Ingel's website. I really like the street level action and the roof garden, which is fantastic!

The street level on this looks pretty decent. Nice change of pace from "giant empty corporate plaza thing".

He said 'one of the best', not 'the best'. I believe it will be one of the best.

Once you start comparing the top ones, it all just becomes a matter of opinion at that point.

A little taller than the Suncor Tower Between this and 225-6th ave, that part of downtown is going to be an urban forest.

I finally finished making a drawing of Telus Sky. I'm not completely satisfied with it, because I was having such a hard time making it look like the renders. Definitely not an easy building to make a drawing of.

Excellent job as always Koops65. Seeing it in the diagram I now wish it were taller and more prominent. LOL I sound like tallbob.

Thanks guys... will be nice to re-do in a few years to make it look like the finished product.
