    Two City Hall by Diamante Development Corporation is launching soon.
    The website is up http://www.twocityhall.com/ and they are taking registrations.

    the funny thing is, I spoke with the owner of Diamante, and he told me they were not thinking of developing this one for a while. I guess they want to jump on the property before the market turns sour... super sour.

    Is this the one that was cancelled? Is it the same developer?

    Diamante has had Hariri Pontarini redesign the tower - it's still 50 storeys at this point:

    Looks nice... the convex curve is a logical tip 'o the cap to City Hall. I wonder if this will be held up due to the "view" issues from NPS that the previous incarnation faced.

    It looks the same as Apex 2 at Cityplace. They could do better.

    It's no secret that the site is for sale through a prominent real estate brokerage (CB). Not sure of the current status though.

    Shouldn't the tower be more boxy? One City Hall is angular as hell, putting a convex on 2 City Hall seems a bit out of place, no? It's not convex enough to work with City Hall either. Sometimes I get the feeling architects just add a curve to make it seem more creative than it is. From my experience of living in these kind of buildings, they are impractical as hell too. Nobody really makes furniture that fits with such shallow curves.

    Why would the site be for sale when they are starting the process of marketing the project.

    If this is truly going forward, it would be a huge vote of confidence by this developer in the Toronto condo market....hope it's true....

    Yuck. I hope this doesn't go through.

    The original design for Two City Hall was a beautiful piece of modernism. And now we get this...

    I could be wrong ... but if memory serves me correctly that "Two City Hall" registration website may have been up for quite a while ?
