*05/11/05 rumour has it that another height increase to 342m top of spire 314m to top of sphere.

*NEW, Proposal has been rejected by City Council in it's current form due to concerns over shadowing on a public square. Possible next move: Redesign or OMB Appeal

*01/12/06 Redesign of building: No globe, chisel shaped building, up to 73 storeys to address shadowing issue. Possible shift away from Hotel-Condominium to more standard large sized condominiums for families.

Replaced the Downtown Plaza proposal - http://skyscraperpage.com/cities/?buildingID=84232
