Two 16 floor Condo buildings in Tiffany Estates.

Wow... my Facebook blew up within seconds of your post, ha!

AWESOME! I love it... lots to pick at (are the two towers connected by a low building? Because I dislike that) but I won't.

It's a fine proposal. Looks normal, residential. It'd be nice to have a bit more St. John's flavour to the exterior but it's great.

So exciting. I can't wait until these are added. They'll REALLY stand out from Signal Hill.

SignalHillHiker Feb 25, 2013 6:19 PM

I love it more and more the longer I stare at it. Think they'll put a green roof on the building joining the two towers? That'd be nice. And I'd still love to see a parkade. I'd like to see surface parking lots a thing of the past everywhere... even malls. But we'll see. :D

jeddy1989 Feb 25, 2013 6:21 PM

If you look at the plan the building in the middle is 2 levels of parking, it looks like they made a park on top though between the towers :)

I really like this design!!! This is so exciting , the provinces first High-rise residential buildings!! :tup:

Great to know they want to begin this spring! :D

Omg, it makes my skin crawl when things aren't scanned straight! However, once I was able to move past that and look at the renderings, I really like (not love, but really like) the Tiffany Lane development. Nice to see some height in that area (which I think should become one of the taller skylines in the city).

here's a shot by Architype:

They will have a significant impact especially with the slope of the land!

SignalHillHiker Feb 25, 2013 6:40 PM

That centre building is a parkade? WITH a green roof?

O.K., I'm in love. :)

codyLawrenceDylan14 Feb 25, 2013 6:42 PM

Height
 
From what I gathered on the LUAR , It's going to have a typical floor height of 3.5m With a mechanical penthouse on top of 2.4m

3.5*16 = 56m 56m+2.4m = ~58.4m

SignalHillHiker Feb 25, 2013 6:48 PM

Very cool. :) PoscStudent, you should share this in the Canada section.

^^ Haha, same here! I'm glad to see there's at least another person on the SJ forums that's as OCD as I am when it comes to things like that...:haha:

At approximately 60m these buildings will look fantastic and really stand out (in a good way, of course).

Great scoop, Jeddy! :cheers:

Second time Jeddy gets the credit for someone else's Scoop, hahaha. He's the luckiest guy on SSP!

This was PoscStudent.

Not only will they look great from alot of angles, but they will also increase density! I would love to see more highrise condo's go up in the east end in the future, especially down by pleasentville.

Tiffany Towers will have the highest floor count in the city :tup:

No reason not to approve this solid development!

Townie709 Feb 25, 2013 7:19 PM

haha, Jeddy gets credit for everything around here :haha:

I would love to see one of these plopped next to the Hilton Hotel as well, which we will hear more on later tonight!

So at roughly 60m, this will make them the third tallest in the city behind The Dunderbuilding and Cabot II? Sweet!

jeddy1989 Feb 25, 2013 7:22 PM

Tower cranes for these ones?

SignalHillHiker Feb 25, 2013 7:22 PM

BTW... can't get over the angle of Architype's shot above. You could not photograph that neighbourhood more attractively. It's perfect. I have to find it once construction starts. :D

At 16 stories, I would hope so! Maybe a shared tower crane between the buildings kind of like they did for the new MUN residences? Although, a crane for each would probably move construction along faster :tup:
