The middle part of the tower appears to be the size of city hall , this will be a major skyline changer.

I have to say that i really like the looks of the building. I would just like to tweak the design a little so it doesn't look like the front of a Rolls Royce Phantom....

Lol.

This thing is going to block most of Conexus, Bank of Montreal, and FCC from most views from the East end.

Overall it's got a very retro feel, but with newer, clearer glass. I'm really quite liking it. It'll give SaskTel a run for the money for the fatscraper champion in Regina.

That's about right! The City hall is also 16 storeys; however, 1855 Rose will still be 11 metres taller. This thing will be a skyline changer!!!

It'll be the largest office building in the province in terms of square footage.

The Sasktel building will continue to be larger. It has 440,000 sq. ft. while this has 400,000 sq. ft.

People ignore the Sasktel building because the building is occupied by a crown.

Are you sure you don't have your numbers switched? The city documents say 437,000 sq. ft. for this project.

Sure it was approved but that does not mean it is going ahead. They have to come up with $200 million.

A 437,000 square foot building of this quality will be close to $200 million.
