hard to tell what's going on. the other renders that i saw had no windows at all (looking south). if it's office, with those ceilings, it's aaa, which would be weird in that spot, especially so far from mcgill. if it's residential, one would expect that they'd save the floor space for the upper floors where they could command more dollars per square meter. but then, it's highly possible that those lower floors will be chopped up into loft-like studios, making the space distribution seem reasonable. still, given the cost of the project 34 floors at 80 million, i'd guess no more than 2 short floors and the mechanical underground (as opposed to on top). that, the windowless rendering and the obscure street next to 3-4 hotels/mcgill residence hall makes the parking podium look like a good bet.
mystery easily resolved once the application comes online.
