    Block 16S (co-op midrise and market building) CORE architects

    This looks like a re-envisioned apartment building from the '60s.

    I noticed that they have made changes to Phase 3/modified the site plan.

    Would we call this style.... "neo-commie-block"? :D

    (no criticism intended, I use that term lovingly)

    The colonnade is a nice gesture along the street front - I quite like that aspect. Looks like it could still use some refining overall but there are some nice details / design language at work here.

    I calculated the height of this as being in the high 90m range, not 104m. Am I missing something?

    I get 95.95 metres.

    Ground level is 86.5 metres. Top of the Roof is 181.45, then there's another parapet wall 1 metre high, for a structural top of 182.45.

    Rounds to 315 feet.

    You mean the developer have done better financially? Not sure - but RP has certainly served as a better model for (re)developing large sites close to the core.

    Yes Alvin, The Regent Park has been converted into a much livable community but at the same time, the buildings architectural merits suit that area much much better that how City Place buildings fit a very important core of the city.

    Compared with CityPlace, the new parts of Regent Park look like the more attractive neighbourhood from a city-building perspective. The buildings in the new Regent Park are more varied in terms of architecture. There are more community amenities like athletic and recreation facilities. The streetscapes look better with more variety in pavements and landscaping. It's a better contemporary city neighbourhood than CityPlace.
