Second tallest?


I never realized how huge the planned retail area is. Aura qualifies as mixed- use.

sweeeeet!

Nice pic, the only bad thing about this project is that I usually get a cheap room by using Priceline across the street at the Delta Chelsea... And this building will block my view if I have a north facing room!

But its worth blocking, very nice building. I love the design.

It's hard to see from the rendering, but it seems that it has a slanted roof.
Beside that, it reminds me of Melbourne's Eureka.

My grandma reserved unit before and to avoid seeing the delta, you had to be at least 25 or more floors up (for south facing) to get a a good view!

Delta Chelsea =
Aura =

Aura's roof IS slanted... actually there are 2 slants!

Photo of the model by me (taken a long time ago):




oh ya! i forgot... Aura is mixed use...

I have faith that this building will bring a heck of alotta life to that intersection!


still Aurora at college park?... REALLY?!


***I just realized... My biggest regret is not stepping foot on that lot before it commenced construction... It would have been soo EPIC!... damn...

I really like how this building complements the shops of college park!

If you look at the upper level of the podium, the roof matches the roof of College Park next door...

Buildings these days should be designed that way !

Still Aurora?

Geez, never even noticed this thread until I actually looked for it today after seeing it u/c yesterday. I need to go downtown more often!

Who names a condo after a crappy suburb anyway?

Awesome construction work at the site!

So long as the weather remains nice im pretty sure construction will continue at a nice clip....

This will probably be a very deep dig, along the lines of Shangri La and ROCP 1/2....

This should proceed quite fast as it seems only half the site with be excavated at a time with the College Park loading dock in the middle
