Not gonna lie, the purposed project is 25 stories, 5 stories higher than the one you posted (or anything else in Regina). Also, I doubt it will actually be orange and I think it will look much more "modern" than the Roberts Plaza. I also doubt it's going to look 40 years old when it's finished. I'm glad we're getting some development, and I'm sure it will look a lot better in a final rendering than some quick orange-and-yellow sketch up.

Of course, I could be wrong. Perhaps it will be bright orange and yellow? It will match the old transit buses, that's for sure.
