I'm not sure what's going on there Shakman. Everybody is asking, but no one seems to know if they're still fooling around with different ideas, or how accurate the renderings really are. When Hamilton built the 222 tower, the renderings were very mediocre and left everyone worried as to what the finish of the façade was really going to look like. The final product was a huge improvement over the rendering. It would seem that no one on the forum has actually asked Hamilton what their final plan for the curtain wall is...
Hmm... I'm beginning to think that Hamilton, and many of the powers that be decided that the Tower's curtain wall design was clashing too much with the connected new Performing Arts Center, which is being built in conjunction with the Tower. However, I haven't bothered to ask them either. I think everyone just assumes the design is in a state of flux still. Demolition of the existing sites is beginning soon, if not already.
