Re: Flin Flon stack - pulled this from wikipedia - it's listed as the 11th tallest structure in Canada at 252 m.

^ Even Stantec falls just short of the mighty Flin Flon superstack. You'd have to build something around the height of Scotia Plaza in Toronto to surpass it, meaning that Flin Flon's bragging rights for tallest non-antenna structure in Manitoba and even Western Canada could be safe for a while

Tallest in Western Canada, eh? Put that smoking pipe in your pipe and smoke it, Calgary.

I don't believe so. Less and less happening at the mine.

For the impatient ones like me, waiting to see the massing complete & enjoy the imposing fill. Playing with this model let me see just how imposing this building will be at full height irl, especially with the dark glass.

Awesome job. I love seeing render and massing models.

That render feels so much taller and bulkier than what I was imagining. Will have a great impact on the skyline.

Thanks Triton!

Depends on where you're looking from. In the north, it gets blended in behind the other towers. From a distance it stands out. Either way, awesome.

I haven't been out on the west side of town much lately but the best view in my opinion is from the east. It really stands out when you are looking at it from the overpasses on Lagimodiere, for example. North and south views are less impressive.

PS I love the illustrations, tritondreyja

I find the best views of downtown are coming from the south on Pembina, the east near Dugald/Lag overpasses. And then Disraeli. (So basically all directions haha)

Disraeli is the money shot, but this the new tower is kind of in the back.

^ Yeah, I agree with the view from the south, but when you're talking the best skyline views of 300 Main specifically then it kind of blends in a bit with its neighbours from the north or south.

Rosser road at CentrePort is a pretty good western skyline view.

I'm a sucker for density and depth. To me, the only view that makes Winnipeg's downtown look big city is over the Donald St Bridge. I love seeing buildings peeking behind and around other buildings. 300 Main now offers a bit more just edging above the foreground buildings coming into downtown from the south.

Maybe it is because I have lived my whole life in NE Winnipeg, but I have always thought that the Disraeli view always made downtown look small with it's 4(now 5) buildings. Same with the Forks view.

^ Funny, for me NE Winnipeg is the only quadrant of the city I haven't lived in so trips over the Disraeli are somewhat rare for me. I always enjoyed the skyline view going that way.

Disraeli is best for the P&M cluster. The rest of downtown is hidden behind it. P&M is really the only thing that stand out from a distance though. The rest of the skyline is kind of flat.

As a kid we drove the north Perimeter a lot to and from the farm. And the skyline always stood out, but only P&M really peaks above everything else.

One of the worst IMO, as the towers look short and fat LOL.
