Now, on to looking at the three different tower design options. The difference between the three, as you'll see, is in tower footprint/shape. Mr. Kuwabara shared that exterior treatment is still a work in progress. I suspect it will become more concrete by the time of the second Design Review Panel meeting, in late April.

Note: they went through these slides rather quickly, and thus I missed the slide "View from the North" for Option 1. Also, please note that I have excluded the "Aerial View" slide for this option to fit under the fifteen image limit. It is visible in the last image of the previous post, however.

Option 2 - Waves

That's it for now. There is a special meeting of the Design Review Panel for this project tomorrow at 6:30pm which I'm planning to observe, and if there's anything of interest I'll bring it back to show you here!

Excellent pair of posts Lachlan! Many thanks.

I confess I find the height a bit excessive here, irrespective of the design choice.........

That said, design option 2 is my clear favourite, with 3 a strong runner up.

The straight-up cylinder (option 1) is entirely unappealing; or what my niece would call 'Basic'.

3 is the best design for me personally. However I echo your sentiment northern light, I'm all for height but this just feels out of place.

I don't mind the height here either, but if your gonna make an exception to the limit that's going to stand on it's own like this, I feel it needs to be a much more iconic design than we're getting. It has to anchor the skyline, not merely exist.

What a nice sleek looking building for this pier! I can see more of these skyscrapers being built in this attractive area by the the bay if the demand is there! Slowly moving out the industry for condos etc lol ! As seen in the photos up above!

I really want to see pier 8 developed but I wish they went with a group of shorter towers instead of the low rises and this one monolith. This tower is literally 2km from anything more than half its height. At best, I hope that bright crown does enough to bother those mountain NIMBYs. Hopefully it will encourage the city to continue growing in density along the James N corridor.
