I dunno, looks a little... cheesy. And the Spider Man font isn't helping things either.

I'll take a little cheese, as opposed to a concrete box.
We have nothing like it in the city.

Maybe they should make the crowns blend in better with the building color and not have name/signage on top. Other than that, a stunning design.

The design is very unique for Calgary. This highrise should be very prominent when viewing the skyline from the north. Will this proposal span the entire block?

It's about as elegant as a camel and as homely too.

Calgary deserves better.

Ya, Las Vegas! The podium is so massive. This has to almost be a 2 building project (another set of twins), because of Shadow Restrictions, (unfortunately). Aside from that, a 55-60 story single structure would work much better.

I love it! My only complaint is that the podium is too tall.

i think that it looks just fine for what it is, a condo. its tall and unque for calgary as was stated. i think that it will look much better in real. so i will hold my judgment for that time. untill then i think i could grow to like it.

Scrap the signage and I dig this. That branding at the top kills it, though. Imagine that "3E" on the skyline.

Like many pf the Calgary forumers, I have a sore butt from sitting on the fence. It looks tacky as if designed for Dubai or Vegas, but one the other hand, it's unique. There's no harm in having something unique thrown into the mix.

I think Calgary can do better. It seems like the more "Way Out" the design the better it is!

To my unrefined eye, I don’t mind the pedestal height, and I like the idea of the bridge, but the detailing at the top seems odd, and not particularly appealing. I don’t understand those tiny balconies on the west side either.

The thing I don't like is the tall pedestal, and how large the floor plate size is on each tower. But like it or hate it...it will be a long shot for a conservative Calgary.
