Menkes is planning a three tower project right next to this project an office tower and two mixed use 70 floors and 240 meter towers. Will have to start a thread for it shortly.

i dunno.. not sure why people like this so much, it's quite mediocre to me... i feel like a better design could go with this special site.

even MLS and ICE are more interesting in design imo,,

But as far as I know, we don't even have a proper rendering of that one yet.

Toronto is on a roll. I can't wait for the entire waterfront to be built up it will change the look and feel of city for the better.

Funny enough I thought we would be due for a bit of a slowdown while the existing proposals were put into actual development.

That's what I was trying to suggest with my post, but you're right, some kind of official announcement with a floor count and heights is sufficient to start a thread.

This is a stunning design,reminds me of Tour de Toren in Brooklyn.

Unfortunately our project won't look that good. Right now I'm praying 120 harbor is curtain wall glass cladding.

It looks like it will be, but still I'm praying.

LeftCoaster Nov 16, 2011 2:47 PM

It looks like a window wall system to me, you can see the spandrels lines all over the rendering.

It might actually end up being that new hybrid system seen on museum tower, which could look pretty good here.

Really?? MLS??

I worked on that project so I should be biased, but even I think they are some of the worst tall buildings in the city. They are so bland, and the parts of them that aren't bland are just plain ugly. The only saving grace is the great massing of the podium that makes the area feel much more urban.

yaletown_fella Nov 16, 2011 8:31 PM

I like it. It definetly looks like a higher quality hybrid system. I hope the window system accent lines are finished in brushed aluminum. A standard glossy plastic spandrel would be dodgy.

caltrane74 Nov 17, 2011 4:06 AM

A hybrid system would be ok. - Better than window wall

That's what I was thinking. MLS has a decent podium, but the towers are completely forgettable.

• Reaching for new heights, Build Toronto working with Tridel on this tower.
• 75 floors and potentially the tallest Condo in the City
• major issue will be auto ingress/ egress
• Potentially solved by offering less parking

Architect Rudy Wallman stated that when he was asked by Tridel to create an iconic design for this high-profile site he turned to nature for inspiration. It is the shimmering essence of the Northern Lights which Wallman hopes to capture in the skin of this tower. Vertical bands of windows will extend from the building's four sides. Those strips will extend at different angles and will be clad in differing tones, catching the light at different intensities throughout the day. At night those strips will be lit for dramatic effect, with the vertical architectural gestures culminating in fins reaching skyward to the top of the building's mechanical penthouse. That crown will be sheathed so that it begins to blend the building into the sky.

When they say 'Potentially tallest condo' does that auger a possible height increase ?
