    It's doable, if they don't have to excavate. Didn't Sapphire get approval for above ground parking?

    ... an acid flashback to the 60s.
    Toronto: listen for a big flushing sound as we remove Dung Ford from city hall on Oct 27.

    I thought we all agreed that DCN was not a reputable source of information?

    Regarding 90 Harbour...truthfully i would rather see something built across the street at 85 Harbour st.... its a bit larger area for an office structure, i say bring back Waterpark Place-3 from the dead.



    R.A. Cntr-3, who knows..only good thing is Oxford properties runs the show and they have the cash to build.
    205 metres? Was there any mention of how they plan to get passed the shadow restrictions?

    You got to remember the shadow issue was with the 338 meter Sapphire Tower..i believe the city wanted something much shorter on that lot.

    i thought it was more in the 190 meter range.... good to know though. i'm almost always welcoming to additional height
    come check out my photography!

    Sweet! It's not often we get a project that's right in the financial district like that!

    The only concern I have is that the exterior looks like it's a window wall system with mullions which in that area would look a bit out of place. But then again, it looks similar to P+S's glass for The MET which would be nice.

    I'm surprised it's so similar to the design Harry Stinson used for the final version of Sapphire, with the slanted roof. Anyways-- exciting stuff!

    Yes, it looks substantially shorter than BA West in that video. I am guessing that the previously posted "announced" height of 187.5m (615 feet) is in fact correct.

    What this is similar to is the Ritz Carlton. And yet located so close to FCP and Scotia Plaza and Trump it looks tiny. Hardly a new iconic building for the Financial District. From many vantage points it won't even be visible. I understand the shadowing issues prevent this building from going taller but if you can't go tall and you want to be iconic be originial. Another glass box with a sloped roof line doesn't cut it.
