Description
Developer: Allied Holdings Ltd.

This design was proposed to be built on the site behind the Hotel Georgia which was a four level parking garage at the time. Although the tower was to be on Howe St. it retained the Georgia St. address of the Hotel Georgia.

The design featured a swimming pool with a partial glass floor, and one end of the pool cantilevered out over top of the older hotel building.

A crane was to be used to excavate the site, since the hole would need to be quite deep.

A 600 foot version was proposed by the architect in the summer of 2002, but was withdrawn. http://skyscraperpage.com/cities/?buildingID=9703
