I think the "wave" design looks like a profile of a breast.

Wow! it really does! I wonder if the renderers noticed that and the *flashes* of light were selectively positioned. Imagine if one was "accidently" positioned near the nipple area. Imagine the outcry!

Confirmed in the Sept 17th Condo Guide - it is more Graziani + Corazza work. It will be 37 floors high, 10 floors higher than was originally envisioned by the Etobicoke Waterfront's planners. I'm glad we're braking away from that mold...

I think this design will be a popular one if executed well, and may end up a major western landmark, known for the teardrop (nautilus) design on the balconies. This blue & green building stands out from the white, gray and black ones east of it, and will be highly visible to thousands of daily commuters on the Gardiner.

All that said, it's not that good, but it will be popular.

Leaving Rob Fordland before it is too late.
Taken yesterday

I had to dig deep to find this thread. Digging has commenced on Monarch's next two buildings. They have another 2 towers left on their site for a phase 4.

great update ... always appreciate good pics, the last one really illustrates the overall 'Waterview' community quite nicely (looking good so far)

You are correct, Monarch's original masterplan intended phase 3+4 to be exact mirror copies of phase 1+2, however plan have since changed due to Ontario Planning legislation effectively encouraging taller buildings and increased density, as a result Monarch retracted its first design of the two buildings for phase 4 known as BREEZE (pictured below) where sales were actually started but later cancelled to create one taller building we now know as Nautilus.

I believe though phase 4 (block closer to lake) will remain as midrise buildings similar to phase 2

excavation is near complete for Nautilus (phase 3) ... it seems like the hole they dug is for 3 levels of underground parking ... now it'll just be time before it goes UP UP UP :)

I like the design of the building but...

$169,990 for 325 sq. ft.
325sq. ft?? WTF!
thats 18ft by 18ft
Basically 170G's for a unit the size of an average living room in a house.
And its 75% sold, guess there are a lot of people willing to live in a small box out there.

Thinking of possibly buying a condo in the Humber Bay Shores area (Parklawn/Lakeshore) and was wondering which new building to consider.....Nautilus VS Waterscapes? What do you think? Pros...Cons! :confused:
