^ looks pretty blah, but not awful. It's pretty much what I would have expected.

I hope the river side treatment along the base doesn't amount to the brutal, ugly, unacceptable standard set by the Edgewater condos along Wellington.

To be honest, this drawing doesn't look promising with that particular area.

Agreed.

Although, I think a different firm was behind the old design.

Hopefully another commie block isn't in the cards. Besides, is glass really that expensive?

If I wasn't so lazy I would spend the day hunting through the bowels of the old 100 Main thread to find the original renderings.

On a different note,

Can you imagine what this tower would look like if 123456 architects got the job?

Now that would be something to see!!

^until it was budgeted.

buildings are only as good as their clients....funk is a good designer....this developer is not a good client...he is martin bergen for the 21st century....i think they might actually even be related.

My goodness....no development, and people complain. We have development, and people find something to complain about.

Great to see a new tower downtown but it kinda looks like they dusted off some 40 year old designs. In fact the same building was built in Regina (and everwhere else) in 1972. Roberts Plaza:

I hardly believe that is anywhere near the actual design. My bet is that is some kind of massing model to get through zoning. Lets wait until and actual render with elevations is released before we pass judgment. I still have hope for this one.

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.

Not that my opinion means jack, but Regina is a fine town, and as far as bragging rights are concerned - outside of football - Regina is not our competition. For that, I'd argue you need to cast your view due west, and a couple hundred kilometres north, or way out east nearer to the mouth of mouth of the St. Lawrence. That is, if competition is the order of the day.

I swear, I'll never understand the Regina-penis-envy some Winnipeggers have. Regina goes erect for a moment and some Winnipeggers quickly look for their viagra.

Well, I'd actually say that Edmonton is more comparable to Ottawa and Calgary, given it's size (though, IMO, it doesn't necessarily do well in that comparison). Both of Winnipeg's peers are to the east, one next to Toronto, and the other on the St. Lawrence river, where you said.

Well of course your opinion is worth something. Of course, I have my own as well. I would argue that Regina is indeed a fine city and one with a great skyline as well! Especially for it's size. So when this undersized city that's about ~500 000 people smaller than ours is getting a bunch of 'scrapers and our own construction forum is discussing the fire in an antique home (not that there is anything wrong with that), you start feeling a little...left behind? So of course, as any person who loves something will do, I defend my home city and get jealous when proposals are popping up for other cities and not ours. And when they do pop up, make sure that everyone knows it.

In the end though, I should be happy for the development in both cities.

It's not as though the only two possibilities are no development and any development at all.

The massing looks commie-blocky but I'll still take it . It's about time frankly .
Besides , it's just the massing not any sort of detailed rendering .
Now if , as TV said , we could just get about 30 more of these .

Sign me up for one across from Burton Cummings Theatre, one at the corner of Logan & Princess (although with a smaller footprint), one at the corner of Hargrave & Bannatyne...also, a smaller infill next to Edge Lofts (replacing that hideous surface lot)

I really hope the old bag who owns this building next to what is now Edge Lofts...sells it soon because the potential it has....WOW! The cornice alone makes me hard...it looks better than this now...not sure when it was cleaned up and had the windows replaced...anyone know???

Edmonton and Winnipeg are pretty much comparable; a difference of about 300,000 in metro is not a big difference really.

The difference in metro is closer to 500K.
