That's what stagnating means, lol. There's no reason why each successive year our typical
highrises can't be outdoing the previous year. If a well-designed tower was achieved in 1998 at say $500psf today, the city should consider it the new minimum standard
; every $500psf project that comes after should be equal or better. But that hasn't been the case.
In fact I prefer some of our utopian 90's towers down by Marinaside Crescent or Bayshore, than crap like Cosmo, Spectrum, Patina, Capitol, Salt, etc...
