Anyone else find it strange that the Telus Garden condo ads all prominently feature the office tower?

Could it be that the condo tower is so grotesque that they want to downplay it?

Parking lot now blocked off and closed walked by this morning and asked the parking guys there and they confirmed it's closed for good. It felt so good seeing it closed!

Could be that the partner is Telus and that the project is being trying to be seen as one project.

They aren't even doing a "Residences at... " marketing scheme, either.

I imagine it is as simple as the fact that pictures from that angle show the whole project... whereas pics from the other corners would not the cooler parts of the project.

That's a good looking render. I'm excited to watch this one progress from afar.

I'm suprised they are going with the TELUS brand for the residential portion. It’s a bit like doing the Residences at Coca-Cola, or General Motors Manor. Ahh home sweet corporate home. It’s weird.

I know we have the Shaw Tower, but at least the word Shaw has various connotations. No mistaking TELUS though.

They could have even called it Optik Place at Telus Garden
- oh, but wait, that might be used somewhere else...

How about the Flower Bed, at Telus Garden...
Or with the onyx facing, The Quarry, at Telus Garden...

was very busy with lots of construction workers this morning. They are busy now putting up hoarding around the white spot section and the other parkade.

Couple of interesting tidbits, the office towers high rise elevators will travel at 1000ft/min the new quickest in the city. Also the tower will allow for using your cellphone nfc as your access card.
