I like how they make it tie into the new Telus building.

I passed by there today and the sign actually says "16 storeys".. so I changed the title of the thread. Yay, one extra floor!

Who is the architect?

Cool! Is it the same architect as the one who designed the Telus building?

I believe so, but I'm not 100% sure...

I believe that they have also built a couple of buildings for high tech companies in Kanata, but this is their first tower in Ontario. They're also building the new Best Buy in the Kanata Centrum.....not that it's anything groundbreaking.

Approved, yes, mon p'tit optimist, but the real hooker to getting this project off the ground is finding somebody to rent the space first. When we hear about a rental agreement then expect some action. This lot has seen a few proposals over the last decade, and there's been more than one billboard with a rendering of a fancy building that was never built placed on the site.

Would look nice next to Telus, though, and would also go a long way to fill in the remaining lots downtown...

the owners are seeking approval to have the lot sit as a parking lot for the next 3 years (à la Rideau Centre expansion). This one isn't going anywhere fast.

Broccolini's site gives availability as 'Fall 2009', but anything could happen between now and then..

I've been staring at the sign for the past year now from the Bank St. bus station. Hopefully we'll hear some news soon!

I expect they are waiting to secure a PWGSC contract before starting construction. 88 Metcalfe is in the same boat.

They put a new billboard of this one up on Slater with a new rendering and it looks sweet; didn't get a picture though. I really hope this one gets built in the near future. I'll get a cell phone shot next time I'm downtown.
