Since 1999, SkyscraperPage.com's forum has been one of the most active skyscraper enthusiast communities on the web. The global membership discusses development news and construction activity on projects from around the world, alongside discussions on urban design, architecture, transportation and many other topics. SkyscraperPage.com also features unique skyscraper diagrams, a database of construction activity, and publishes popular skyscraper posters.
The south and east elevations are as bad as Sapphire!
Correction: worse than Sapphire. The building looks absolutely hideous coming down Melville...like one of Concord's earliest ugly white spandrel towers - except with an exposed core for extra ugliness. But in typical Vancouver fashion, this thing was approved, looked good from one angle in one rendering, and sold out in a few weeks, so it's all good!
You know, this is working for me now. I didn't expect the balconies to continue jutting out further as the building climbs, nor did I expect the homage to The Crime Lab that the podium seems to be creating.
