I don't think the dev ever had any intention of doing that. in the floor plans, there was no mentioning of elongated balconies on alternating floors.The north tower was supposed to have the 'shuffled deck' look that 1Thousand Bay features but I guess that got ditched as well.
I understand that it was in the renderings but what i'm trying to say is, if great gulf was really gonna put in reality, they should have thrown in the dotted lines to show alternating patterns like they did in this Great Gulf "Home Condo" floor plan. but if you go look at the FP's of Y&R, you will see no mention of staggered balconies. Hence why I say there was never any intention of following through with the renderings.It's shown pretty clearly in the renderings.
Is there anything proposed for that parking lot right to the east that can hide this thing in the future?
