Sorry to take this OT again.. but I'm surprised you aren't familiar with the old National Opera Ballet House proposal for this site. It fronted Bay (before those abominable things were built). It was a simply massive proposal by Moshe Safdie, so PoMo it makes the Louvre pyramid look tame.I'm not sure where the name 'Opera Place' came from, but am pretty sure no opera house was proposed here (maybe one was torn down here?)
Great photos casaguy. At first I thought you took them from a helicopter.^It really is quite amazing nothing has come of that lot which is only 30 seconds away from Wellesley subway. I'd rather see U Condos go there.
As for Casa, here's a view from above taken this morning. In the first pic you can clearly make out the pool.
And as much as I'm really liking the glass, I gotta say I'm still rather partial to the render artist's version.
I was really hoping for just the slightest hint of purple and a lighter grey for the mullions (is that the word?).
