Someone said TNS Phase 2 was ugly, and I just probably want to disagree with that a bit strongly, you know

Oh wow, haven't checked this thread for a month. Gotta make sure things are going right way when that claim appears on my screen!

The design of the Pier 27 tower is kind of disturbing. It reminds me of a pile of things that were haphazardly stacked one on top of the other. I kind of feel someone should go adjust it or something...

Come on, that "landmark" tower still isn't done? What a farce.

I can't stand that project. the original design was at least....original. Wrapping a black brick podium around the original heritage facade looks really strange.

The project looks better than most of the development we've seen in the Entertainment District, at least in quality...but that doesn't say much. I don't even mean it looks that much better...there are just some elements to it that make it more suitable or bearable, depending on the observer. I wish they went for office uses in the podium, with a better design language that at least mimicked elements of the heritage building.

I believe the podium is a hotel.

Irving Oil Tower - Saint John, New Brunswick - 12 storeys - 59 meters

Nearly complete, this is the third tallest building in New Brunswick, and second tallest in Saint John.

^ That Irving Oil Tower is something else, at first glance it looks like it could be from 1932. It looks like a really high quality building.

I like Pier 27. I think it would have looked better if the facade followed the balcony design than being a box with cantilevered balconies. Reminds me of a vastly superior office tower in Germany or Austria, I think, which is not a good thing for Pier 27. I can't remember the name or where it was. It could have been Moscow and I haven't been there in 24 years. LOL

I don't mind the heritage retention as part of King Blue. Last I saw, the building wasn't vertically expanded which gives the impression of a new development hugging a separate, fully original building which you expect from intensification in a dense urban downtown.

From the photos it looks like the cladding is real sandstone. I've noticed this has become a lot more common in recent years in the Maritimes. It really went out of style from about the late 1960's to 2000 or so, when bare concrete or later precast would be used on even high-end projects like the Irving Oil HQ. It's nice that this higher quality material has come back into style. Maybe it will become an easier choice to use in future projects now that there are more modern examples around, more architects and builders that have done major projects with stone, etc.

You would never see an Irving Oil type building here in Vancouver. The design is not perfect but I think it's a good thing that the building is different and fits in with its surroundings instead of being a generic minimalist blue glass prism that could have been built anywhere in North America. Cities like Saint John need some solid-looking new buildings and buildings that fit with the local architecture.

I guess you missed the limestone-clad Robert Stern towers that have already been approved?

“A key material element that is unique in contemporary Vancouver high-rise design is the use of limestone cladding on the whole project – providing a direct link between the proposal and the historic Vancouver architectural icons from which it draws its inspiration. This materials strategy of quality and authenticity is carried forward into the other major materials such as granite accents, rubbed bronze spandrels and steel details.”
