A leading magazine that examines Toronto life tracked me down in various forums and asked me to provide a future render
for an upcoming issue, for proper compensation of course. One of the options I offered was an update on my old future view from Marina Del Ray.
After they blew me off without so much as a courtesy call, I decided to continue work on the render with hopes of applause from dozens (rather than tens of thousands).
I attach for your viewing pleasure:
1. major slice of the original pano circa 2003/2004 from Marina Del Ray
2. additions made - NOTE: I will eventually provide a project/status key to go with this however please feel free to play "where's Waldo" if you want to take a stab at identifying
the additions. *obviously the status of 1 Bloor East will be cancelled with a note regarding Great Gulf's TBA project.
3. the final render circa 2014 or so
I've included some built project updates such as BMO recladding and new height for RioCan's Y/E property, but left out all the 20-30 storey things in Liberty Village.... the layers devoted to proposals in the
entertainment district were just too... overwhelming. I've left out a couple dozen of others out of sheer weariness.
Those little dabs of colour you see in this render... started out as actual elevations. Crazy but Seasons Greetings nonetheless.
